Cluster 515, Sir James Black Building (formally West Medical Building)


Pawel Herzyk, Richard Burchmore, Gavin Blackburn, Ronan Daly, Graham Hamilton, and Clement Regnault


A two-day course aimed at familiarizing participants with the basis and application of various omics disciplines: genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics. Each of the omics disciplines will be covered by a lecture and a practical bioinformatics session. By the end of the course users should understand, for each omics level: the basis of the discipline, the instrumentation used to generate high-throughput biological data, key applications, and how to visualize the resulting data using commonly used software packages. Participants will also be aware of how different large-scale data sets can be integrated in order to obtain better biological inference, and appreciate the nature of other modern challenges in bioinformatics.
