Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the following SIB course:

*NGS - Quality control, Alignment, Visualisation*

*9-10 February 2017, Bern, Switzerland*

In this module, we will introduce the most used sequencing technologies 
and explain their decryption concepts.

We will also introduce the repositories e.g. the European Nucleotide 
Archive (ENA), Sequence Read Archive (SRA) from which you could retrieve 
raw data based on specific experiments. We will practice the usage of 
command line tools to search and fetch NGS raw data in a powerful way.

Finally, using different datasets, we will practice screening for 
quality control, filtering reads for better downstream analysis, mapping 
reads to reference genome and visualize the output.

This course is intended for life scientists who are already dealing with 
NGS data or willing to efficiently use publicly available NGS data, and 
would like to be able to start analysing them.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are 
available from 

Any question? Don't hesitate to contact us at training at sib.swiss

We wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

On behalf of the SIB Training Group.
