About the course

We are extremely happy to announce 13th edition of Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics that will take place on 6-10 July 2020. This year the course will cover high-throughput data analysis in plant biology, including subjects like differential gene expression, miRNA analysis, genome variants calling, proteomics or metabolomics. 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 omics-related 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.
