Later this year Peer Bork, Jeroen Raes, Roland Krause, David Torrents, and I will be organizing the EMBO practical course “Computational biology: From genomes to cells and systems”. It will take place October 14-20 in L’Escala Girona, Catalonia.
In times when high-throughput data are the norm rather than the exception, computational skills to turn masses of data into tangible biological insights have become crucial. This course will teach advanced computational methods for analysis of high-throughput data in molecular biology, covering both inter-individual and inter-species variation in (meta-)genomes and linking it to clinical applications. The course will span protein and pathway level variation from single genomes to entire microbial communities.
To participate in this course, fill in the online application form at the latest July 31, 2012. The registration fee is 250 euros for participants from academia, and 600 euros for industry.
