The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Wellcome Trust Bioinformatics for Immunologists Course, 2019
Closing date: 23 Apr 2019 23:59 (GMT)
Course dates: 15 - 19 July 2019
Location: Wellcome Genome Campus, UK
The joint course with EMBL-EBI aims to provide an introduction to immunology bioinformatics and offer opportunities to explore key methods, tools and resources that can be applied to research.
The course will provide participants with an overview of best-practice methods in applying bioinformatics approaches and enable them to become confident users of their own and public domain data. The resources introduced during the course will cover a variety of data types, from genomic and proteomic data; to computational models, biological pathways and reaction information. Participants will gain experience of the analysis pipelines for NGS experiments relevant to immunology, and will be led through an exploration of this data to identify information of interest. Additionally participants will be introduced to how data from a number of sources can be integrated to provide a wider view of their research.
The course will start at approximately 10.00 on Monday, 15 July and close at approximately 15.30 on Friday, 19 July 2019.
This is a residential course. All students are requested to stay onsite for the full duration to benefit fully from discussions and interactions with the faculty and other students.
A limited number of bursaries are available to cover up to 50% of the £680 course fees. They are awarded on merit and can be applied for as part of the course application form.
