The next course will be held in June 2019 (6th of June 2019 - 27th of June 2019), the course runs every day for a three weeks period in June 2019 in Room 062 in Building 208. The course consists of lectures, exercises and project work. Prerequisistes are basic knowledge of Molecular Biology. Additionally because the many of the exercises will be performed using command-line basic knowledge of how to navigate in a Unix/Linux environment is a plus, but not required, and will be tought on the first day of the course. The course will be conducted in English.

Learning objectives

A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

  • Describe the applications of the different NGS technologies, including the weakness and strengths of the approaches.
  • Explain the steps involved in a general NGS data analysis.
  • Explain key theoretical concepts of alignment and de novo assembly.
  • Apply programs in Unix for analysis of NGS data.
  • Synthesize and formulate a project and relevant question within the field.
  • Independently perform a basic NGS data analysis.
  • Apply analytical and reflective skills in analyzing results from individual steps and the final project.
  • Cooperate in groups for project work and communicate results on a poster.


There are no textbook, and none is necessary for following the course. Articles will be available during the course to support understanding of the subjects.

If you need to brush up on your biology
Here is a very nice lecture series by Dr Norman Cohen from Open University named DNA, RNA and protein formation.
