Training at NBIS

NBIS offers training and workshops within the area of bioinformatics. The training events are primarily for PhD students, postdocs, investigators and other researchers at Swedish universities, but also for industrial researchers in Sweden. There is a small fee for the participants.

We offer both introductory level training events as well as niched and advanced level training events within specialized research and/or technology areas.

Please note that NBIS training events do not provide any formal university credits. The training content is estimated to correspond to a certain number of credits; however, the estimated credits are just guidelines. If formal credits are important, you need to confer with your home department before submitting a course application to establish if the course is valid for formal credits or not.

Introduction to bioinformatics using NGS data

2023-11-13 to 2023-11-17 (5 days)
Deadline 2023-10-04
More infoThis intense one-week workshop provides an introduction to the analysis of next generation sequencing data. Lectures on the theory of concepts will be paired with practical computational exercises in the Linux environment. The practical exercises will focus on data from the Illumina platform, but we will discuss other sequencing platforms and the advantages and challenges to using their data during the lectures.

NBIS/ELIXIR-SE Tools for Reproducible research

2023-11-20 to 2023-11-24 (5 days)
Deadline 2023-10-20
More infoThe term “reproducible research” has been used to describe the idea that a scientific publication based on computational analysis should be distributed along with all the raw data and metadata used in the study, all the code and/or computational notebooks needed to produce results from the raw data, and the computational environment or a complete description thereof. This course aims to help researchers make their computational analysis more reproducible.
