>EMBL Advanced Course in Analysis of Short Read Sequencing Data

>This email showed up in my mailbox today, and I figured I could pass it along. I don’t know anything about it other than what was shown below, but I thought people who read my blog for ChIP-Seq information might find it… well, informative.

I’m not sure where they got my name from. Hopefully it wasn’t someone who reads my blog and thought I needed a 1.5 day long course in ChIP-Seq! (-;

At any rate, even if I were interested, putting the workshop in Heidelberg is definitely enough to keep me from going. The flight alone would be about as long as the workshop. Anyhow, here’s the email:


Dear colleagues,

We would like to announce a new course that we will be having in June 2009 addressed to bioinformaticians with basic understanding of next generation sequencing data.

The course will cover all processing steps in the analysis of ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq experiments: base calling, alignment, region identification, integrative bioinformatic and statistical analysis.

It will be a mix of lectures and practical computer exercises (ca. 1.5 days and 1 day, respectively).

Course name: EMBL Advanced Course in Analysis of Short Read Sequencing Data
Location: Heidelberg, Germany
Period: 08 – 10 June 2009
Website: link
Registration link: link
Registration deadline: 31 March 2009

Best wishes.

Looking forward for your participation to the course,
Adela Valceanu
Conference Officer
