Dates: 12-15 February 2019
Organizer: Francesco Ferrari IFOM, MIlan
The course will include both theory classes and hands on tutorials to cover different research topics requiring bioinformatics solutions.
The first day will focus on key concepts of nucleic acids and protein sequences analysis.
Then a second part of the course will be focused on bioinformatics for transcriptomics, epigenomics and cancer genomics data analysis. This part will try to address bioinformatics problems that many of the SEMM students will encounter during their research activity, thus it will cover a larger portion of the course.
Finally, the last part of the course will comprise two lectures on a few more specialistic topics such as transcription dynamics and chromatin 3D architecture. These are meant to provide an overview over emerging and more specialistic fields where bioinformatics plays a key role. These latter two lectures will be only theory classes.
