About the course

We are extremely happy to announce 12th edition of Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics that will take place on 4-8 September 2017. This year the course will cover medical aspects onext-generation sequencing data analysis, including subjects like differential gene expression, miRNA analysis, genome variants calling, bioinformatics of rare mendelian disorders or Nanopore technology. The course is suitable both for beginners and for those who already have some basic knowledge in bioinformatics and find it necessary and interesting to learn more about bioinformatics applications in RNA studies.

The course consists of lectures and hands-on - this combination should fit best your needs as you have a chance to try out the discussed methods yourself. The following topics will be covered:
