This course has SOLD OUT the last two times offered.
This in depth lecture and hands-on computer based laboratory workshop is ideal for those bench and research scientists who have little or no bioinformatics background and are seeking a comprehensive workshop on the bioinformatics analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data, particularly DNA-seq, RNA-seq, and ChIP-seq.
Hands-on interactive program
Team taught by active researchers
Lecture and extensive hands-on laboratory exercises
Comprehensive binder containing all material presented in the workshop
Space limited to 24 participants
Registration Fee: $995.00
"As always, Bio-Trac not only met my expectations, but exceeded them! I will absolutely be taking more classes with BioTrac - their classes should be required for all graduates entering the field of science. Easy to understand & follow, yet the classes get to the core of the discussed principle."
Jennie Rowell PhD, RN, Assistant Professor, The Ohio State University
"It was my first experience with professional development workshop in the USA. I liked it a lot. It was well organized, flexible and friendly. It helped to put in order my preceding knowledge and gain more."
Larisa Ryzhara, MD, PhD, Staff Scientist II, Maine Medical Center Research Institute
"Great investment. Took material that would have taken months to compile and perfect on my own, and packed it into 3 days."
Richard Barrett, PHD Student, University of Central Florida
This workshop gives with a strong foundation of introductory information before moving on to the hands-on analysis portion of the program during the lecture hours.
Students are assigned personal cloud computing accounts to process real big data as an overnight assignment during the program.
Laptops are supplied for the daytime instruction hours but you are welcome to bring your own. Students will need access to their own laptop for the evening assignments. Mac, PC, or Linux will work, Mac is preferred.

Dr. Yun obtained his Ph.D. in computational biology from Boston University, with his research focusing on the aggregation of amyloid beta protein in Alzheimer's disease. Sijung took a postdoc position at the NIH, with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) studying structural bioinformatics and proteomics. Later, he worked at the genomics core in National Institute of Diabetes Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). Currently, he is an independent contract bioinformatician primarily working for National Institutes of Health (NIH), C.E.O. of Yotta Biomed, LLC and is a lead instructor in numerous bioinformatics next generation sequencing (NGS) training activities. Dr. Yun had directed our Bio-Trac NGS related workshops since 2009 and has provide NGS instruction to over 700 Bio-Trac participants.
