A course fee of 1100 SEK will be invoiced to accepted participants (includes the study material, coffee, lunches and course dinner). NOTE – Uppsala University cannot invoice individuals.
During the two-day SciLifeLab metagenomics course, the participants will be brought up to date with the current state-of-the-art in the rapidly emerging field of environmental genomics, including metagenomics and single cell genomics. The course will focus on computational methods for assembly and functional annotation of environmental genomics data.
Topics covered will include:
Participants must be comfortable navigating a linux shell and execute programs from the command line. Without this knowledge, it will be impossible to participate in the computer exercises. Previous experience from working with NGS data (genome assembly, transcriptome assembly, SNP calling) is a plus. Applicants are also encouraged to bring their own laptops, but there will be computers to use for participants unable to do so.
Due to space constraints for the computer exercises, there are a maximum number of allowed participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
