Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the following course from the Doctoral 
Program StarOmics and organized by the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics

*"**Genetic Diseases - exome and complete genome sequencing and 

This four-day course, which will be held in Lausanne during the week of 
7- 10 April 2014, will be dedicated to the exome and complete genome 
analysis, the use of genetic-based data as well as variant 
identification in two domains, human genetics and cancer variation.
At the end of the presentations and practical sessions, participants are 
expected to have a clear understanding of *genome variation*, how *to 
perform GWAS* and *exome analyses*, and how to apply these techniques in 
translational research.

Skill requirements: Participants should have a good understanding of 
command-line UNIX in order to perform the practical exercises.
Material requirements: A WiFi-equipped laptop with 3-4GB of RAM, 40GB 
free hard-disk space and virtualbox installed. You will be given a 
virtual machine image with all softwares and packages needed for this 

Further information and application form are available from here 
Please note that priority is given to PhD students members of the 
Staromics doctoral program <http://biologie.cuso.ch/staromics/welcome/> 
and that the number of seats is limited to 25.
