This residential workshop aims to provide experimental biologists working on protozoan parasites with hands-on experience in genomic-scale data analysis, including genome browsers and comparison tools, methods for data integration, and resources for sophisticated data mining. Examples and exercises will be drawn primarily from the and resources and will include a variety of eukaryotic parasitic organisms including Apicomplexa (ie. Plasmodium and Toxoplasma) and kinetoplastida (ie. Trypanosoma and Leishmania). Applicants working on any protozoan parasite from these resources will benefit.

This course is taught as a collaborative effort between the Parasite Genomics Group (Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK) and the Eukaryotic Pathogen Bioinformatics Resource Center (University of Georgia & University of Pennsylvania, US). The majority of this intensive programme will be based on hands-on exercises with lectures on genomics and bioinformatics techniques, in addition to daily keynote presentations by world-renowned parasitologists.

Feedback from the 2014 workshop
“Thank you for this wonderful course!”
“The workshop was really amazing! It gave to me the opportunity to investigate in deep some aspects of my research in a very simple way. The instructors were all very competent and friendly.”
“It was a great experience!! I learnt a lot, discovered stuff hands-on and am taking an amazing experience back with me, to my work and life!!”
