The MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) has been running a successful training course on Viral Bioinformatics and Genomics annually since 2015.
The application deadline of the course this year was 20th April 2018. This year, we received a large number of applications, but we are limited to accepting only 16 people due to the computer cluster size here.
We will be giving a 5-day course, which will consist of a series of lectures and practical exercises that directly address bioinformatic challenges posed by the current surge of sequence data, with a focus on viral data sets and analyses. We will enable participants to understand and deal with high-throughput sequence datasets and encourage the exchange of ideas among diagnosticians, virologists, bioinformaticians and evolutionary biologists. Students will work on our high performance computing facilities at the CVR. The CVR has been designated an OIE Collaborating Centre for Viral Genomics and Bioinformatics at the 82nd OIE General Session.
Next year, we will run the Viral Bioinformatics and Genomics course as well. Please fill this online form if you would like to be kept informed about our Viral Bioinformatic training courses open to the public at the CVR.
