Based on a structured overview of bioinformatics methods this course gives an introduction to the main concepts of sequence bioinformatics applied to next generation sequencing and proteomics data. The course contains theoretical and practical sessions on genomics, metagenomics, gene expression analysis as well as proteomic analysis.

Over the years, the course has traditionally aimed at providing a background in current bioinformatics tools, outreaching several hundred applicants from the ICGEB network at each call.

The current programme is focusing on genome analysis, gene expression and diagnostics, and topics will include:

  • Data, databases and big data in bioinformatics
  • Sequence alignment, multiple alignment
  • Genome annotation, metagenomics
  • Gene expression analysis
  • Qualitative and quantitative identification of proteins vi proteomic analysis
  • Identification of post-translational modifications using proteomics


Participants will need to have their own laptop with an internet browser installed to access the course Google Cloud infrastructure and remote high speed computing facility for sessions and practical exercises - technical requirements will be available soon
