A High Throughput Sequencing Course is being offered by the Duke Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. This is an intensive, six-week, multi-disciplinary course covering the biological, statistical, computational and informatics knowledge for implementing a well-designed genomics experiment, with RNA Sequencing as a central focus. Central components of the course are hands-on library preparation and data analysis.
The course will run from May 20, 2019 to June 27, 2019.
This course is funded through NIH's Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative, which fully covers tuition for all course participants, as well as on-campus room-and-board for a limited number of participants. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are welcome to apply. They also welcome high-school or undergraduate STEM faculty.
