The Translational Bioinformatics Workshop is an intensive five day course which is designed to review different high-throughput genomics technologies along with the methodologies and tools to analyse, integrate and interpret these different layers of information.
The course will combine theoretical lectures from international experts with highly interactive and practical sessions. This format will leave participants equipped with a solid conceptual framework of the application of genomics/bioinformatics to translational research and with methodological skills to start analysing genomics data.

30 CPD points have been awarded by The Royal College of Physicians
