From event page:
This intensive two week summer course introduces attendees with a strong biology background to the practice of analyzing big shotgun sequencing data sets (Illumina, PacBio, and Nanopore). We introduce students to computational thinking and large-scale data analysis on UNIX platforms, and cover genome and transcriptome analysis. We also cover computational topics including R scripting, software installation with bioconda, cloud computing, and building efficient and automated workflows.
No prior programming experience is required, although bravery in the face of the unknown is necessary! A year or more of graduate school in a biological science is suggested. Faculty, postdocs, and research staff are more than welcome, as are researchers from industry.
