Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology is organizing a computational genomics course and R programming will be used for most of the practical sessions. The course will cover basic statistics, programming and basic concepts in next-generation sequencing as well as it is applications such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, DNA-seq and metagenomics in the context of precision medicine. There will be practical sessions every day. The course will last 10 work days and will be taught at MDC-Berlin campus between 12-23 September 2015.
