Introduction to Computational Genomics

June 21-25, 2021

About the Course

This week-long virtual course for Mayo Clinic and Illinois affiliated scientists and clinicians covered the basics of computational genomics, while integrating the latest technologies and computational methodologies. University of Illinois faculty and Mayo Clinic scientists taught lectures and led hands-on lab exercises in a variety of subject areas including genome sequencing and assembly, polymorphism and variant analysis, epigenomics, and systems biology.

2019 Illinois Participants at the Institute for Genomic Biology

Registration is now closed

Topics included Genome Assembly, Variant Calling, RNA-Seq & Transcriptome Analysis, Systems Biology, Regulatory Genomics, Polymorphisms & Association Tests, Statistics, Cancer Informatics, and more. This was another exciting line-up of speakers and topics including new translational focused lectures and labs from Mayo Clinic on Clinical Variant Interpretation and RNAseq in Hereditary Disease Diagnosis, and new lectures on Methylation for Clinical Diagnosis and Polygenetic Risk Scores. Labs were a hybrid of synchronous and self-paced exercises this year.
