Courses & Workshops
GENECO courses are generally one week long and are given at the Departemnt of Biology at Lund University. The courses are free of charge to all GENECO students but are open to PhD students from any university to a course fee. The curriculum offers both introductory and specialized courses, as well as hands-on laboratory (wet or computer) and theoretical courses.
Here are some examples of previous courses held by Geneco, pdf 110 KB.
Intro to Bioinformatics using NGS data - 25-29 September 2017, Lund
The course will provide an entry-level introduction to a wide range of analytical techniques for massively parallel sequencing, including basic Linux commands. We will pair lectures on the theory of analysis algorithms with practical computational exercises demonstrating the use of common tools for analyzing data from each of several common sequencing study designs.

Understanding Population Genetics, 23 - 27 October 2017
Population genetics with its many mathematical formulae provides perhaps the sharpest analytical tool in biological research. Its results are used everywhere, from evolutionary explanations to analyses of inherited diseases and many other applications. To really understand the strength of population genetics it is important to have worked through the most important derivations at least once. This course gives an introduction to the formal side of population genetics with the attempt to keep biological relevance in focus.
