Otago Bioinformatics Spring School

Genomics Aotearoa and NeSI are proud supporters of the Bioinformatics Spring School 2021 being organised by Otago Carpentries.

This is an intensive one week, in-person course tackling the basics of bash and R, high performance computers and genomics analysis (DNA Variant calling, Genotyping-by-Sequencing, RNA-seq and eDNA).

Is this for me?

This event is designed to give researchers (including students - 4th year and above) the opportunity to learn about and practice some bioinformatic skills. We’ll be covering bioinformatic workflows such as:

  • DNA variant calling from next generation sequence data
  • Genotype-by-Sequencing analysis (i.e. RAD-Sequencing)
  • RNA-sequencing differential expression analysis
  • Environmental DNA analysis

along with computational topics such as:

  • Introduction to the Unix commandline (Bash)
  • Introduction to R
  • Introduction to working in a high performance computing environment (provided by NeSI)
