Dates: February 26th-March 2nd 2018
The development of high-throughput genomic technology has transformed biomedical sciences and provides limitless potential for developing new personalized treatments for disease. However, analyzing the data generated by these technologies requires tremendous computational resources and significant computational and statistical expertise. The Computational Genomics Winter Institute (CGWI) aims to bring together researchers interested in methods development at the intersection of computational genetics and functional genomics. CGWI compliments the month-long Computational Genomics Summer Institute (CGSI) by providing a week-long intensive course in method development in genomics.
