This workshop provides 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.
