Course Organization

After some discussion about how we should organize the blocks, we would like to let the attendant join the specific block that they are interested in. Nevertheless, perhaps you want to learn how you can analyze RNAseq but you are not interested in learning Linux. Well, that can be a problem, because you will probably need a lot of tools that need to be used as linux command lines. So we have divided the blocks (Core Section and Optional Section) into required, strongly recommended, recommended and optional:

* Required:
– Block 1: Introduction to Bioinformatics.
– Block 3: Basic Linux.

* Strongly recommended:
– Block 2: Web Tools.
– Block 4: Basic Databases and SQL

* Recommended:
– Block 5: Basic R.
– Block 6: Basic Perl.

* Optional (depending of the demand):
– Block 7: Genomics, from sequences to annotated genomes.
– Block 8: Transcriptomics, RNAseq, beyond just counting sequences.
– Block 9: Phylogenetic and comparative genomics.

The classes will be at the Atrium, generally Mondays from 1.00 to 4.00 pm (1 h. lecture, 1 h. exercises and 1 h extra hour if more time is needed for exercises). Some blocks may be given in one session, while other may require two sessions. For space reasons, only 24 people will be able to attend the course. If you are interested in the course but are unable to come, we can organize another course in the future. Meanwhile you can register with the blocks that you want to attend in this poll.

Note (Feb 10, 2012): All the seats have been covered. Thanks !!!
Any form submitted after this date will be consider for future courses
