Courses & Workshops

GENECO courses are generally one week long and are given at the Department 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.

Spring 2019

Autumn 2018

SciLifeLab Courses supported by GENECO

GENECO will cover the fees for these courses (contact Christina [dot] Rengefors [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se)

Introduction to Bioinformatics using NSG data, Umeå (12-16 November)
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. Application deadline: September 27

RNA-seq data analysis, Umeå (14-16 November)

This workshop will introduce the best practice bioinformatics methods for processing and analyses of RNA-seq data via a series of lectures and computer practicals. Application deadline: October 2

Phyton programming with applications to bioinformatics, Uppsala (19-23 November)
This course provides a practical introduction to the writing of Python programs for the complete novice. Participants are lead through the core aspects of Python illustrated by a series of example programs. Upon completion of the course, attentive participants will be able to write simple Python programs from scratch and to customize more complex code to fit their needs. National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of fundamental Python skills within all Swedish universities. Application deadline, October 11

De Novo Genome assembly, Uppsala (20-22 November)
The course is mostly aimed at researchers getting into their first de novo genome assembly project, but will also include information of use for the more experienced researcher. We will cover assembly of both prokaryotes and eukaryotes and spend a lot of time on learning how to run the analyses in hands-on computer exercises. Application deadline: October 15

Life-Science Courses supported by GENECO

NBIS Courses supported by GENECO

Geneco also supports and give credits for the the following NBIS courses, and GENECO will cover the fees as well (contact Christina [dot] Rengefors [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se)
