The Center for Cell Circuits, a Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) at the Broad Institute, is hosting its annual Computational Genomics Workshop on September 19 and 20, 2019. 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 of the workshop 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. On day two, attendees will split their time participating in a single cell RNA-seq data analysis training and partaking in a FireCloud training.
This free workshop is open to everyone and will be hosted at the Broad Institute’s 415 Main Street and 75 Ames Street locations in Kendall Square. Registration will open in June. Space is limited and we encourage you to sign up early.
Travel grants are available for students and postdocs traveling from out-of-state. To apply for a travel grant, please send a letter of support from your current supervisor to email@example.com by Friday, July 26, 2019.
For any questions regarding this workshop or registration, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we welcome the attendance of scientists from outside academia, to ensure that we are reaching as wide an audience as possible, we ask that non-academic institutions send a single attendee who can then report back to any other interested colleagues.
