PhD course: High throughput sequencing of non-model organisms DR425F - 2016

Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture, Nord University

The Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture at Nord University takes great pleasure in inviting you to the annual PhD course "High throughput sequencing of non-model organisms" (DR425F) 31 May - 10 June 2016.
​​ ​

High throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies are being applied to a wide range of important topics in biology. However, the analyses of non-model organisms, for which little previous sequence information is available, pose specific problems. This course will address the specific strengths and weaknesses of alternative HTS technologies, the computational resources needed for HTS, and how to analyze non-model species using HTS. The course consists of practical training in preparing and running fragment libraries, HTS bioinformatics training, and lecturing/seminars of HTS approaches specifically targeting non-model organisms.

 A detailed ​course description is available here​.

 We will accept a maximum of 10 students. The closing date for applications is April 29.
