Human Variome Project, Prague, Czech Republic
6 - 8 November 2017
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend and participate in the 2nd HVP Variant Effect Prediction Training Course that will be held from Monday 6 to Wednesday 8 November in the beautiful historic city of Prague, Czech Republic. The second workshop will be based on the subjects covered by the Course in Heraklion 2016 but improved based on suggestions of the participants.
The Course will satellite the National DNA Diagnostics meeting that will be held in nearby Pilsen 9 - 10 November.
The course will be a mix of theory and practice presented by invited expert speakers and abstract-selected participant contributions. Participants are stimulated to submit an abstract related to the topic of the course, e.g. the workflow followed, practical problems, solutions developed, etc. Practical sessions will be a mix of academic and commercial demonstrations giving course participants hands-on experience with computational analysis tools.
Expected Participants are people working in a DNA laboratory including clinical diagnostic labs involved in DNA sequencing data analysis. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop (PC or Mac) as this will be needed for the Course.
Expected knowledge - basic knowledge of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, protein), molecular biology lab technologies (esp. sequencing) and (human) genetics.
