About 9th Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics

Advanced Techniques in Genome Analysis

Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics is a comprehensive course of bioinformatics. The course is best prepared for those who already have some knowledge in bioinformatics and find it necessary/interesting to learn more in this field. It is therefore aimed to give the opportunity to find out how to use some basic and more advanced bioinformatic tools and how to perform bioinformatic analyses in your research.

The course consists of lectures (by scientists from Poland and abroad) and excercises - this combination should fit best your needs as you have a chance to try the methods out yourself. We cover the following subjects (which we find most interesting and up-to-date):

  • Population genetics in the genomic era
  • Next generation sequencing technologies
  • Sequence assembly
  • Genome wide association studies
  • miRNAs and their targets
  • Genome wide analysis of repetitive elements
  • Tools for genome annotations and analysis
  • Gene complexity and alternative splicing
  • Reactome - reactions, pathways and biological processes
