About the workshop:
The study of Genomics has come to spot light because of the promise it holds for understanding life and curing diseases. Clinically promising breakthroughs stemmed from this vast field have recently opened a floodgate of personal genomic information, which need attention from experts from diverse fields. The current workshop aims to shed light on the sheer complexity and vastness of genomic data along with some practical guidelines for its efficient analysis. The sessions will be focused on two recent trends of this field namely epigenomics and single cell transcriptomics. Our experts will discuss the synergistic role of biology, computation, statistics and machine learning in extracting insights from genomic data deluge. Hands on sessions will be conducted to make the participants familiar with the logistics, necessary for genomic data analysis. We cordially invite attendees from all relevant backgrounds to participate in this one-day workshop and be introduced to the wonderful world of Genomics.

Highlights: Hands – on – Training with Introductory sessions on ChIP-seq and single cell RNA-seq data analysis.

Skillset: Familiarity with Unix and R programming language (optional)
