GRIB organizes a Course on Bioinformatics for Integrative Genomics

We are pleased to announce that registration for the Course on Bioinformatics for Integrative Genomics is now open.The course is organized by the Biomedical Genomics lab of GRIB (IMIM-UPF).

The objective of the course is to provide theoretical and practical expertise in the field of bioinformatics for integrative genomics. Attendees will learn how to handle and analyze genomic data to answer specific questions using tools developed in the Biomedical Genomics lab: IntOGen, Gitools and Condel.

Some questions that will be addressed are:

· Which mutations are likely to affect the function of the protein and which are probably neutral?
· Which of the genes affected by those mutations are already known to be involved in cancer or other diseases?
· Which pathways or biological processes are affected by the transcriptomic alterations detected in my experiment?
· Etc
