Description

The two-day bioinformatics workshop aimed at researchers working with larger datasets of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data arising from patient tumor samples. It focused on background knowledge on technologies used for data generation and for data analysis. Commonly used tools for data interpretation were introduced and applied in hands-on sessions on provided data sets.

The course consisted of instructional lectures in the morning, which focussed on a specific NGS data type (e.g. whole genome, whole exome, methylome, RNAseq) and introduced methods for data generation and tools for analysis. The latter were demonstrated in an interactive tutorial in the afternoon. Each day was closed by a scientific lecture presenting oncology research highlights using methods described in the course.
