#NGSchool2018: SMRT & personalised medicine

Summer School in Bioinformatics & NGS Data Analysis (#NGSchool2018) will be held 16-23 September 2018 in Lublin, Poland. In 2018, we'll focus on single molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing & personalised medicine. We'll publish more detailed programme and open registration in May 2018. Stay tuned! 

For the first time, we'll organise: 

  • hackatons
    • Single molecule real-time sequencing (MinION): from sample to results
  • open-science projects in collaboration with OSF
  • and satellite meetings
    • Nuclear landscapes (genome/chromatin structure, organisation and packing) 14-16/09 in Warsaw, Poland
    • Data mining & machine learning 24-28/09 in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
