This theoretical and practical course is aimed at researchers who would like to get the most out of their Next Generation Sequencing datasets. We will tackle several topics, encompassing theoretical NGS approaches and statistical analysis of NGS data. Ultimately, we want this course to be of immediate value to the students.
The first week of this course (Nov 6th – 10th) will be devoted to theory and practical examples for a broad audience, while the second week (Nov 13th – 17th) will be dedicated to practical analysis and hands-on for a selected group of participants.
Prospective students when registering can apply for the first theoretical week only or for both weeks. Students applying for the hands-on section will be selected based on their data and the analyses they wish to perform.
The course will be free for participants coming from the Institut Pasteur International Network, whereas all other students will pay 1000HKD if they assist to the first week and, 2000HKD if they take the whole course.
The course will be held at the University of Hong-Kong. The official language for the theoretical and hands-on session will be English. This hands-on NGS course is open to the whole Pasteur International Network, Hong-Kong Universities and Research Centers.
