Course overview: 

The handling of large datasets has become intractable without some level of bioinformatic literacy. Many biologists find that there is a steep learning curve to develop the confidence required to explore their genomics datasets effectively. This bioinformatics short course includes a rich collection of hands-on instruction and lectures specifically intended to help novice users become comfortable with a range of tools currently used to analyse next-generation data.

Intended Audience

The course is aimed at anyone interested in learning bioinformatics tools needed for handling large genomic datasets.
