Dear all,

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

*"**Next Generation Sequencing genome & transcriptome assembly and 
analysis"* - **Fribourg, 16-18 June 2014
"***Mini-symposium BEFRI Genomics Day" - *******Fribourg, 20 June 2014 ***

Genome and transcriptome assembly and analysis are critical steps in 
many biological projects. The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) methods 
and the software to analyse their output data evolve at a fast rate. We 
therefore propose to review advances in the current sequencing methods 
and software needed for genome and transcriptome analysis.
During this three-day course, participants will learn all aspects from 
quality control and cleaning the data, to de novo genome and 
transcriptome assembly, to reads remapping for SNP calling, to 
transcript counting and isoforms identification. An extra day (20 June) 
will be dedicated to the BEFRI Genomics Day jointly organized by the 
Universities of Bern and Fribourg, where real life examples using NGS 
data will be presented.
The course will offer hands-on sessions, the participants are required 
to bring their own laptop with min 4Gb RAM and wifi.

Further information and application form for both the course and the 
mini-symposium 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.
