Clinical bioinformatics for microbial genomics and metagenomics

We are pleased to announce a course jointly organized by SIB, ESCMID and the Institute of Microbiology (CHUV) on:

Clinical bioinformatics for microbial genomics and metagenomics, on 9 - 12 September 2019, in Lausanne.

This course aims at providing participants with the essential tools to understand the output of bioinformatics analysis pipelines, interpret the results for making better-informed clinical recommendations, recognise the main challenges and limitations when using NGS bioinformatics analysis pipelines in clinical settings, and acquire a common language to foster multidisciplinary discussions of results with clinical bioinformaticians in their team.

It is aimed at clinical microbiologists and other professionals working in the field with little or no programming background.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are available here.
