Auburn to Host Genomics Workshop

Published: 05/15/2014

From May 19-23 Auburn will host 31 researchers representing nine institutions in the U.S., Canada and Germany participating in a genomic analysis workshop or “Bioinformatics Bootcamp”. Initiated by the NSF-funded WormNet2 grant, the workshop will train participants in various aspects of next-generation DNA sequencing data manipulation including genome mapping, assembly, annotation and phylogenomic analyses. Faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate student teams will attend lectures and collaborate on group projects using AU supercomputing resources. Biological Sciences faculty Scott R. SantosLes R. Goertzen and Ken M. Halanych will provide instruction.  Registration for this week’s workshop is closed but efforts to develop a regular workshop to promote bioinformatic training are underway. A PDF of the 2014 Bioinformatics Bootcamp syllabus can be found here.
