This 40-hour course at the CRAI-ICT Building on the Vegazana Campus of the University of León provides offers training on data analysis in Next Generation Sequencing techniques, focusing particularly on their application to the metagenomic study of samples from different environments and the use of supercomputing in the collection and assembly of sequenced DNA fragments, as well as their subsequent annotation and analysis.

The contents throughout the five days are divided into an introductory seminar on the use of supercomputing applied to bioinformatics, diversity analysis, metagenomics and metatranscriptomics. The training will be given by Cristina Esteban Blanco, PhD in Veterinary and Food Sciences from the University of León and graduate in Biochemistry from the University of Oviedo; Giuseppe D'Auria, senior researcher in Bioinformatics at the Sequencing and Bioinformatics Service of the Foundation for the Promotion of Health and Biomedical Research of the Valencian Community, and Javier Tamames de la Huerta, PhD in Science from the Autonomous University of Madrid and graduate in Chemistry from the Complutense University of Madrid.
