Clinical Genome Informatics Course

The field of Life Sciences is continuously evolving with new tools and techniques coming into the picture. In recent years Bioinformatics has seen exponential growth and has become an essential part of every Biological project. Therefore, having an understanding of various Bioinformatics tools, techniques and methods has also become pretty important to every person working in the Life Sciences domain. With this view in mind, we have developed a training program in Clinical Genome Informatics with a focus on the analysis of DNA Sequencing data. Participants will learn different methods, tools, and techniques to analyse Whole Genome/Whole Exome sequencing data and will be able to apply these techniques in their research and career. The focus areas include personalized genomics, precision medicine, and cancer genomics.

We have designed these courses, especially for those willing to pursue their careers in Bioinformatics and Genomics.

The training program is divided in two modules. The first module will help understand key concepts in Bioinformatics and Python Programming. Second module will cover the entire NGS data analysis workflow to analyze WGS/WES datasets. At the end of the training, participants will be given a project where they can apply their knowledge and carry out the analysis on their own. For detailed topics covered in the program, please download course manual from the above link.
