Introduction to Computational Genomics

June 24-28, 2024

About the Course

This week-long virtual course for Mayo Clinic and Illinois affiliated scientists and clinicians covers the basics of computational genomics, while integrating the latest technologies and computational methodologies. University of Illinois faculty and Mayo Clinic scientists teach lectures and lead hands-on lab exercises in a variety of subject areas including genome sequencing and assembly, polymorphism and variant analysis, clinical variant interpretation, and regulatory genomics. New this year are modules on single cell and spatial transcriptomics and AI.
