Practical Genomics Workshop:
From Biology to Biostatistics


This four day workshop is an intensive hands-on introduction to analyzing next-generation sequencing data using publicly available Unix and R tools in a cluster computing environment. Exercises are designed to take participants through a limited number of approaches in depth while emphasizing practical concepts in experimental design, quality control, biostatistics, reproducible research, and exploratory data analysis.

Days generally start 9:00AM and end 5:30PM. A laptop is required for both the interactive lectures as well as the many small group "breakout sessions" during which participants practice computational analysis. Please do not bring a tablet.

The workshop will be held at the Carnegie Institution - Department of Embryology in Baltimore, Maryland. 3520 San Martin Drive, Baltimore, Maryland 21218.

A light breakfast and lunch will be served each day.


Faculty and Staff: $550
Hopkins and Carnegie students and postdocs: $325 (courtesy of ICTR subsidy*)
