The High Throughput Sequencing Course being offered again this summer by the Duke Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. It is appropriate for anyone interested in learning more about this area. This is an intensive, six-week, multi-disciplinary course covering the biological, statistical, computational and informatics knowledge for implementing a well-designed genomics experiment, with RNA Sequencing as a central focus. Central components of the course are hands-on library preparation and data analysis. The course is scheduled 07/05/2018-08/9/2018

This course is funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative, which fully covers tuition for all course participants, as well as on-campus room-and-board for a limited number of participants.
