This was a highly-educational scientific event. The Venue was the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Wellcome Genome Campus at Hinxton (Cambridge), United Kingdom. It took place on June 27, 2016 – July 1, 2016.
The focus of this course was the analysis of data from genomic studies of Cancer. The lectures were oriented towards giving an insight into the bioinformatic concepts required to analyze such data. Some practical sessions provided the participants with the opportunity to apply statistical methods to the analysis of cancer genomics data under the guidance of the lecturers and teaching assistants.
The Programme included sessions, among else, on:
a) Introduction to high-throughput sequencing and its application in cancer,
b) SNV analysis,
c) SV analysis,
d) CNV analysis using NGS data,
e) Methylation analysis in cancer,
f) RNA-seq analysis in cancer,
g) From genomes to networks.
