The workshop was addressed to all researchers interested in understanding how to generate sequences and interpret information obtained. It is suitable for both researchers willing to start using next generation technologies and those already working on them. The course alternated theoretical concepts and practical examples focused on the Illumina platform. Participants were guided to follow the entire process of a next generation sequencing run, from preparing DNA/RNA libraries from the biological sample to the analysis of data.
The course was limited to a maximum of 12 participants. Applicants were required to write a letter containing a 300-words outline describing the relevance of the course to their research.
