Course Description

This FFULisboa Short Course consists of an entry-level bioinformatics course focused on the analytical stages of omics data applied to the study of pathogens. The course will include theoretical sessions and a strong practical computer-based approach to the analysis of genomic, transcriptomic or metagenomic data and how to translate towards the assessment of phenotypic traits (e.g. drug resistance, virulence) or public health and epidemiological risk for pathogen dissemination. This will enable participants to perform different analytical steps involving data obtained by Next Generation Sequencing methodologies as to address different questions, of either fundamental or applied nature.

The 2022 edition of this course will be run in hybrid mode through simultaneous online and onsite interactive sessions. Onsite attendance has a more limited number of vacancies.
