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.


  • 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



Only a limited number of participants are admitted to this Course to allow adequate interaction during the practical sessions.

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first- served basis up to the overall seats availability and will only be considered complete upon receipt of the relevant payment.
