On behalf of the Cologne Center for Genomics (CCG) in the context of the West German Genome Center, the Lal Research Group is hosting a three-day coding workshop (December 19th-21st 2019) on “Computational Genetics, and Application in Variant Interpretation”.

Costs: Attendance to the workshop is free.

Venue: The workshop will take place at CMMC large seminar room.

Mentors: Computational biologists from: i) University of Cologne, Germany; ii) Cleveland Clinic/Case Western, USA; iii) Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, USA; iv) University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

Target audience: Graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, clinical scientists, and principal investigators currently working with clinical genetic data, or about to embark on projects that require analysis of such data.

Prerequisites: All participants are expected to bring a laptop to the workshop (more details later) For Module 1 no prior programming experience is required. For Module 2 attendance at Module 1 or basic familiarity with R are required.

How to apply: Due to space constraints, we can only accept a limited number of participants. In previous years we were 200-300% overbooked.
