About the workshop:

Nowadays, high-throughput sequencing technologies are routinely applied to study a wide range of important topics in biology and medicine research. The unique advantages of sequencing technologies and increased throughput accompanied by decreased cost, make DNA sequencing allow researchers to address important biological questions that were not possible before. As increasingly large amounts of sequencing data, including genome sequencing, epigenome sequencing and transcriptome sequencing, becomes available, efficient and specific analysis of these sequencing data are important and critical. This summer educational workshop will provide an introduction to the technology, data analysis, tools and recourses for next generation sequencing (NGS) data. The content is intended to provide a broad overview of the subject areas and key resources, and to highlight the approaches and methodologies.
