de.NBI Summer School 2015
The German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) presents the ﬁrst Late Summer School that was organized by the Bielefeld-Gießen (BiGi) Center for Microbial Bioinformatics. The BiGi center is specialized in the ﬁeld of Omics data analysis for microbes and is well-known for its software platforms (e.g. GenDB).
This de.NBI Late Summer School focused on the workﬂow from genome assembly to genome and transcriptome analysis. During the training, participants gained insight into state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. Participants of the workshop could bring their own data sets, which were analyzed in the diﬀerent sessions.
Learning targets and requirements
Participants were instructed in the genomics workﬂow and gained understanding of the possibilities and limitations of genome sequencing and sequence analysis. The course covered lectures and hands-on sessions by de.NBI and renowned experts in the ﬁelds and was aimed at PhD students, postdoctoral fellows or other scientists with a solid background in bioinformatics and molecular biology. Practical analysis was performed on own data sets if possible.
