The Duke Department of BIostatistics and Bioinformatics will be offering a High Throughput Sequencing Course this summer. It 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 is scheduled 05/20/2019-06/27/2019.
This course is funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 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. We also welcome high-school or undergraduate STEM faculty. This is the final funded year for this course, as the grant supporting it ends this summer, and does not allow for renewal.
