Course Summary

This 4-day Workshop provides an intensive introduction to bioinformatics tools freely available on the internet, focusing primarily on the Human Genome data. Students will be given hands-on training in the use of public databases and web-based sequence analysis tools. All course materials will be available on the web, and students will have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructors as they apply what they have learned. Each student will have access to a desk-top PC for the duration of the course.

This course is limited to 20 participants and will be held in English.

Please visit the application page for on-line registration. There is no course fee for applicants from non-commercial institutes. A number of bursaries are available for each overseas course. These are awarded by the selection committee according to merit.

The bursary will cover travel, accommodation and sustenance. The maximum award for travel (in economy/second class) will be £750. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible. Please visit Bursaries for Wellcome Trust Advanced Courses for more information.

Instituto de Higiene, Montevideo, Uruguay

Deadline for applications: 14 August 2015

This five-day workshop aims to give molecular microbiologists working with bacteria and eukaryotic pathogens a working knowledge of genomic analysis, which will cover the handling and processing of DNA sequence data produced by ‘second generation’ sequencers. The course will be taught by members of the Pathogen and Parasite Genomics teams from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and regional instructors from Latin American institutes, and will take the form of a series of modules covering most aspects of sequence analysis and exploitation. Each module will be introduced with a short talk, followed by hands-on worked examples using data from bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens. The course will be taught in English.
The course begins with training in the use of genome analysis software (Artemis and ACT), developed at the Sanger Institute for genome exploration and comparative genomics. It then goes on to cover the mapping of Illumina sequence data, SNP calling, genome assembly, and genome annotation. The course also features a module that aims to teach the basics of using genome/gene sequences to plot phylogenetic relationships between microbes, as well as an introduction to scripting for basic processing and mining of data.
PLEASE NOTE: The workshop is open to applicants from institutes in Latin America and the Caribbean. Attendance is free of charge for non-commercial applicants and bursaries are available for travel and accommodation expenses. Please see below for details.
