12th MRC SGDP Centre Summer School: Bioinformatics for Geneticists

Bioinformatics for Geneticists: This course will teach how to handle data and conduct basic analysis, QC and annotation. It will cover the most common analysis packages and methods and how to do systems biology with each of these datasets singly or in combination. It will teach the essentials of GWAS and web data resources, pathway and network analysis, but a primary focus this year will be on next generation sequencing analysis. It will consider methods for analysis of transcriptome sequencing and exome/whole genome sequencing.
