Free Bioinformatics for Beginners: Next-Gen Sequence Analysis Tools
April 7 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
An Introduction to the World of Meaningful Scientific Data
Join us for Day 2 of a free, five-day series about the booming field of bioinformatics.
Part II – Next-Gen Sequence Analysis Tools
Next-generation Sequencing (NGS): The first step in learning bioinformatics—A survey of the technology underlying NGS nucleic acid sequencing and how it can be used to generate bioinformatics for research and medical applications. We will examine how data is processed from raw sequencer output to interpretable information. Note: You do not have to attend Part I of this course to benefit from this discussion.
Featuring: PAUL SAUNDERS, Ph.D.
Teaches: Next-Gen Sequence Analysis Tools—A Hands-On Approach
Each day this week we are diving into a key topic in the industry during a live-online, one-hour webinar. Designed to give you a sense of what it takes to begin a bioinformatics career, you will hear from Silicon Valley bioinformaticians in the Bioinformatics certificate program at UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley Extension and learn about the different tools and technologies used to make meaning from the vast trove of amassed health data. This specialized data serves as the foundation for cures and vaccines being discovered each day. You may attend one or all of the five one-hour, stand-alone sessions.
Who This Is For
No experience necessary. These live lectures are designed for anyone interested in learning about a possible career in the fascinating field of bioinformatics. You’ll get to see if merging your interest in science with programming makes sense to you. The demand is enormous for trained professionals in the bioinformatics field. Help save lives!
