    First Tripartite Fiocruz-IP-USP Hands-on Course Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

    The aim of this course is to provide students with theory and practical tools to analyze Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. The course is composed of a theory and practice lessons. In the first week theory sessions will cover the main kind of HTS analyses (re-sequencing and variant analysis, de-novo sequencing, transcriptomics, ChIP-Seq, metagenomics), in addition to some general bioinformatics tools and Biostatistics.

    The second week is dedicated to practice, in which the students work with their own data in small groups with a mentor that guides them. The practice week is designed so the course is of immediate use to each student. We expect the students to go back to their countries with the necessary knowledge to continue working on their own data. Lastly, this course will also promote interactions through bioinformatics between Fiocruz, the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) and the University of Sao Paulo.

    This course is part of the cooperation agreement signed by the Institut Pasteur, Fiocruz and the University of São Paulo on June 8th, 2015. This undertaking, between these three actors in Research and International Public Health, defines the main directions of scientific cooperation and prefigures the basis of the project to establish an Institut Pasteur in Brazil.
