The Barcelona Summer School in Genomics and Bioinformatics offers two new courses from September 16th to September 20th, 2013, at the Pompeu Fabra University.

Bioinformatic Analysis for Next Generation Sequencing Data: This course, which is coordinated by Simon Heath from the National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG), will cover the theory and practical aspects of NGS data analysis, covering different genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic NGS analyses. The course is disigned for masters and PhD students with an interest in NGS data handling and analysis and will focus on the computational and statistical challenges inherent in NGS data analysis.

Next Generation Sequencing for Medical Genomics: This course, which is coordinated by Ferran Casals, from the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (UPF-CSIC), has the aim to familiarize the students with the different NGS technologies and their applications to the study of human genetic variation and disease. The course will cover aspects from technology and informatics to experimental design and data analysis. Course disigned for: master and PhD students preferentially with a background on human genetics.

Number of participants for each course: 25
