Dear all,

The SIB PhD Training Network and the NCCR "RNA & Disease" program joined 
efforts to organize a

Summer School in Computational RNA Biology 

It will take place *23-28 August 2020* in Schwarzenberg near Luzern in a 
very nice hotel/environment <https://www.bzmatt.ch/seiten/?oid=1&lang=de>.

The aim of this School is to broaden early-stage researchers’ expertise 
in RNA bioinformatics, with a particular focus on NGS-based analyses. 
Participants will gain an overview of the state-of-the-art in RNA 
bioinformatics, before embarking on a challenging, hands-on training 
project in a chosen area. Learning will be guided by experts from fields 

*1) single cell RNA analysis*,
*2) long-read RNA sequencing*,
*3) ribosome-profiling**,
**4) UV cross-linking immunoprecipitation (CLIP-seq)*.

There will be a focus on team-work and many opportunities for networking 
with trainers and other participants. More information on the course 
page <https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/2020-08_CRB>.

*IMPORTANT*: in the COMMENT field of the application form, it is 
mandatory to indicate:

- previous experience with RNA-seq analysis
- your skills with command line (UNIX) and R
- the order of preference for the projects topics (see list above), e.g. 
4, 1, 3, 2. We will take your preferences into account, but keep in mind 
that we need to build homogeneous groups with the same number of people.

Best regards,
