Tentative Programme for FGSB Workshop 2018

Theme: A complete guide to big data analysis in genomics

This workshop consists of eleven modules covering the main concepts and ideas in genome analysis, starting from asking relevant research questions, experimental design, data acquisition, sequence analysis and data mining, to result interpretation and presentation. Each workshop module contains two main components. The first component provides an overview of ideas behind data sourcing or transformation of data into meaningful knowledge for publication. The second component encompasses hands-on activities on data analysis using various publicly available tools.
