Center for Cell Circuits Computational Genomics Workshop - September 10 & 11, 2018

The Center for Cell Circuits, a Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) at the Broad Institute, is hosting the sixth annual Computational Genomics Workshop on September 10 and 11, 2018.  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 of the day attendees will participate in a single cell RNA-seq data analysis training.  The other half of the day trainees will partake in FireCloud training.

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

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.
