EVENT : C3BI Training
Hands-on Metagenomics data analysis: tools for bioprospection in clinical and environmental microbiology
Main speaker : Gregorio Iraola, from Institut Pasteur Montevideo
Date : 25/09/2017 at 10:00 am
Location : Other – Institut Pasteur Montevideo,Institut Pasteur, Paris
The main objective of this training course is to provide the trainees: i) a concise theoretical framework of the state-of-the-art methodologies and analytical approaches to analyse metagenomic high-throughput data and ii) help and assist the trainees during intensive hands-on sessions to apply these methodologies on their own real datasets and answer their own scientific questions. Furthermore, the course will be an opportunity for the trainees to meet international experts in the area, generating a highly motivating and synergistic environment for incorporating new knowledge, setting up collaborations, answering questions and asking new ones.

INDA Hands-on NGS-GWAS course
We are happy to announce the International Network for Data Analysis (INDA) Hands-on course in NGS and GWAS. The objective of the course is to provide to each student the knowledge and tools necessary to understand and analyze Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data, as well as Genome-wide association studies (GWAS), no matter the dataset they have or where they come from in the RIIP. The course is around two weeks long. First week is devoted to theory sessions that will include the basis of NGS technologies, quality analysis, algorithms for mapping and assembling, different kinds of biological experiments and a strong focus on the corresponding statistical techniques. We will also offer and introduction to GWAS, Genotypic variation and linkage disequilibrium, and SNP array design, with some model cases. The second week is dedicated to practice, in which the students work with their own data in small groups with a mentor that guides them. The practice week is designed so the course is of immediate use to each student. We expect the students to go back to their countries with the necessary knowledge to continue working on their own data. Lastly, this course will also promote interactions through bioinformatics between different Institut Pasteur in the RIIP.
We will only accept candidates coming from the Institut Pasteur International Network , Fiocruz, University of Sao Paulo (USP) and the University Gaston Berger (UGB). International candidates can apply for a travel grant. Candidates must fill and send the application form (here), a short CV (2 pages max) and a letter of support from your head of laboratory or mentor to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
See course flyer for more information (here) and syllabus (here). Deadline for the application is July 31st, 2015 at midnight (Paris time).
