Summer School Genopole 2018

Bioinformatic and Biostatistic tools in Medical Genomics


JUNE 25 - 29 Campus of Chateauform’ Seine Port (77)

The programme will cover statistical methodologies and bioinformatic tools used in genomics in the context of a comprehension approach of pathological mechanisms.
The course will include lectures by guest speakers as well as hands-on computer sessions* with experts in the field.

The course is intended for researchers, engineers and PhD already involved or planning to start their research projects in the field of genomics for medical research.

It is limited to 20 participants, in order to ensure the highest quality in the to the interactions and to the practical sessions. For this reason, registration will include a selection step by the organizing committee.
Deadline for pre-registration 31 MAY 2018

More specifics
