Scheduled Bioinformatics Training April 2017

We’re opening registration for two courses we are running at the end of April 2017 aimed at postgraduates and postdocs. The first one is a half-day introduction to Unix on the morning of the Thurs 20th April, and 8 22 days later a full day introduction to RNA-Seq data analysis on (NEW DATE) Friday 12th May which is funded by CAPOD. Both will be held in the Swallowgate classroom.

The RNA-Seq introduction requires familiarity with the Unix command-line and if needed, this can be acquired by also attending the Introduction to Unix course. Both courses are free of charge to postgraduates and staff of the University of St Andrews. Programmes and registration forms are linked below:

1) Introduction to Unix for Next Generation Sequencing
