The 3-day course will provide a practical introduction to analysis of next generation sequencing data, including handling of raw data as well as their application to the study of human diseases. This year, we have placed special emphasis on the analysis of complex traits using NGS data (e.g. whole genome/exome, epigenome and target sequencing of the HLA loci) in addition to the technical challenges of analysis such as data manipulation and variant annotation.
