KBRIN Next Generation Sequencing and Data Analysis Workshop

TBD July 2019

The University of Kentucky and Bluegrass Community and Technical College will be hosting a five-day, KBRIN workshop covering the acquisition and bioinformatic analysis of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data.

The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with an understanding of the technical aspects of data acquisition, and an introduction to the use of common (and open source) tools for data analysis (genomic, RNAseq and metagenomic data sets).

No prior experience or background in NGS is required. Applicants with NGS datasets that they wish to examine as a component of the workshop experience are encouraged to apply.

The workshop will be hosted in July 2019

The workshop is free to participants from Kentucky (applications will be reviewed by a selection committee to ensure broad representation)

$1000 to all others (fee includes registration, housing, breakfast, lunch, coffee and snacks)
