Summer School Genopole 2017

Bioinformatic and Biostatistic tools in Medical Genomics


4 - 7 JULY 2017 Campus of Chateauform’ Seine Port (77)

The programme will cover statistical methodologies and bioinformatic tools used in genomics and metagenomics 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 20 April 2017


Cloud Session : In collaboration with Australia's EMBL-ABR and GVL


Practical information

This is a residential summer school. Hence, all sessions will take place in the Campus of Chateauform’ Les Berges de Seine, in a nature area close to Paris. Participants will be hosted in the campus with accommodation and meals all included in the registration fees.

In order to ensure a high quality of instruction, places are limited to 20 participants and will be granted upon a selection step based on a short description of current / upcoming research and on a brief test included in the registration form.

The course will start on the 4th of July afternoon and will end on the 7th of July 2017.



- The programme of the practical sessions requires a working knowledge of UNIX system (use of UNIX commands, create and modify files…).
- In order to ensure a homogeneous level among the participants a short test is included in the registration form (script language and statistics).

* Participants shall bring their own laptop
