Center for Cell Circuits Computational Genomics Workshop, September 22 & 23, 2014 at the Broad Institute

The Center for Cell Circuits, a Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) at the Broad Institute, is hosting the second annual Computational Genomics Workshop.  The workshop is focused on bringing together researchers from outside of the Center to learn computational tools developed for the analysis of genome-scale data at multiple levels (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and proteomics) and to reconstruct cell circuits models from these large-scale data sets.  The first day will be a lecture series followed by a second day of hands-on training to learn the analytical pipelines.

The lecture series will focus on RNA-seq methods and data assembly, alignment, and analysis, single cell RNA-seq genomics, ChIP-seq experimental and computational methods, CRISPRs and their use in genome editing, and proteomics.

Hands-on training will group attendees based on their computational skills for one half the day, and then all attendees will participate in a single cell RNA-seq data analysis component.

Registration is available here and will close by Monday, August 25.  Registration for Day 2 is limited, so please sign up early.  

The workshop will be hosted at the Broad Institute’s 415 Main St and 75 Ames St locations in Kendall Square.

Travel grants will be available again and require a letter of recommendation from a current mentor or peer.  After completing registration, send the letter of recommendation to ccc-workshop@broadinstitute.org by Monday, August 25.
