Understanding how to generate sequences and interpret information.

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has recently revolutionized the approach to genomic studies enabling the sequencing of billions of bases in massively parallel reactions. These new sequencing technologies collectively referred to as ”ultra-deep” sequencing or “massively parallel” sequencing are currently used for SNP discovery, detection of structural variants, genome-wide measurement of transcript levels, analysis of epigenetic modifications and a number of other applications, and are revolutionizing biological research. IGA courses are addressed to researchers interested in understanding how to generate sequences and interpret information obtained. 


The courses alternate theoretical concepts and practical examples to familiarize with the tools.
