“I am pleased to have attended the BIGB course, having arrived with no experience of the tools covered, but leaving with the confidence to independently tackle my own genome sized datasets.

Beginning with an entire day of Linux and command line familiarisation, the course started slowly to allow everyone to grasp the fundamentals before moving on. Subsequent days covering RNAseq, assembly, annotation and Python were at a slightly faster pace. Spread over five days, these subjects were covered in sufficient detail to empower first time users.

Course instructors Nic and Ian are experts in their fields with the humility to inspire confidence. Both delivered great lectures and practical tutoring. There were some experienced imposters among the beginners in our group. The resulting mix of abilities was nevertheless accounted for by our instructors who tailored the level of their one-on-one tutoring accordingly. The upshot being that everybody appeared to have gained from the course. My own research has certainly benefitted by putting into practice the skills passed on by Nic and Ian.

The loch side location of SCENE provided a fitting environment that was perfect for decompressing after intense periods of computation. Our host Oliver clearly worked hard to provide a comfortable setting for everybody and I would certainly recommend attending this course to anyone considering it.”
