Harvard to launch new drive in Next Gen sequence analysis Training

Harvard School of Public Health Center for Health Bioinformatics - a hub for training and consulting in bioinformatics at Harvard - is launching a new training program together with Harvard Medical School to empower a new generation of biomedical scientists in Next Gen Sequence analysis and omics experimental design.

This is a new thrust because it seeks to train a cadre of scientists over a period of several months to do NGS biology - and make them independent and computationally capable.

The program will be led by a training team of superb NGS specialists who get it in terms of what is needed to drive best practice research using NGS.

The door is open to applicants who want to joint his team and are interested in a career in training NGS. See the link above....
