STATegra Summer School on NGS and Data Integration

24th and 28th of September in Pamplona

The Unit of Translational Bioinformatics organizes a new STATegra Summer School on NGS and Data Integration. The TransBio/STATegra Summer School is a unique environment where multidisciplinary researchers will be lecturing and conducting hands-on sessions on statistical analysis and visualization of multi-omics data.

The STATegra Summer School will take place between the 24th and 28th of September in Pamplona.

  • The venue will be Navarrabiomed.
  • To register please fill the form. (no places available: if you register we will add you to a waiting list).
  • We consider necessary some background in R or other programming languages. The school will NOT require advanced programming skills, but some preliminary experience.
  • The selection will be first-come/first-served, therefore we will start accepting suitable students as soon as we start receiving applications. We set a limit of 20 students max.
  • Registration fee is 450 euros per person (including lunch and coffee breaks for the duration of the course and the course dinner).

The STATegra Summer School builds over previous experiences:

  • I STATegra Summer School (Benicassim, September 2015), evaluated 9 over 10. Lectures available here.
  • Casym Summer School, Stockholm, June 2015. Lectures available here.

The school is designed to be mainly a hands-on based school, where students will face real-data and real challenges. The first part of the course reviews single-omic analysis (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, DNA Methylation and single-cell RNA-seq), while the second part addresses integrative tools (including network analysis, multi-omics PCA, Meta-analysis and multi-omic Visualization among others).

Confirmed lecturers:

  • Sonia Tarazona, Project leader, Centro Investigation Principe Felipe, Spain.
  • Narsis Kiani, Assistant Professor, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden.
  • Vincenzo Lagani, Associate Professor, Ilia State University, Georgia.
  • Ricardo N. Ramirez, Postdoctoral fellow, Harvard Medical School, USA.
  • Jesper TegnĂ©r, Professor in Bioscience and Computer Science, KAUST University, Saudi Arabia.
  • David Gomez-Cabrero, Head of the Translational Bioinformatics Unit, Navarrabiomed, Spain.
