Next Generation Sequencing Workshops and Training Courses

This website presents upcoming workshops and training courses that are related to different next generation sequencing topics including technical aspects (e. g. sample and library preparation) and general introduction to next generation sequencing workflow, technology and applications. 

On this website you can also find more specific workshops about NGS application in microbial genetics, plant and fungi genetics, human genetics and cancer genetics. 

Additionally, we recommend some websites from major companies, organizations and institutes that organize numerous inhouse workshops.

Workshops with focus on bioinformatics and data analysis will be listed under workshops for bioinformatics in a separate category.

General NGS Workshops

NGS – Library construction and quality control April 2017

3rd to 7th April 2017, Technische Universität München, Freising-Weihenstephan, Germany

Description: This course gives an introduction to massively parallel sequencing (also called Next Generation Sequencing, NGS), and its many applications. The course consists of a theoretical part, which will focus on considerations for the NGS experiment design, the different sequencing platforms, quality control of samples, library preparation techniques, and quantification of libraries for sequencing. The course also includes practical parts where the participants will prepare libraries and perform quality control and compare libraries.

Next Generation Sequencing April 2017

21-28 of April 2017, Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge UK
The course will include theoretical and practical information on all of the next-generation sequencing systems available and those on the near horizon. The laboratory element will cover a mix of technologies that will be determined nearer the time, but will be chosen from platforms including, PacBio, Illumina (Miseq, HiSeq) and Oxford Nanopore MinION. One aim of the course is to allow participants to make informed decisions about which technology to apply to solve specific research questions they may face in the future. A variety of applications will be covered (e.g., RNA-Seq, target enrichment, bacterial sequencing, cancer genomics, human variation analysis) along with all the basic techniques of post-sequencing analysis (QC, alignment, assembly, variant calling, etc.).

Mining Microbial Genomes and Metagenomes for Biotechnological Applications July 2017

Sunday, July 30, 2017, 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Sheraton Denver Downtown
he U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DoE JGI) will offer a 1-day workshop on Microbial Genomics and Metagenomics at SIMB 2017. The workshop will include seminars and extensive hands-on tutorials on how to use the IMG interface for comparative analysis of isolate genomes and metagenomes. We will also highlight some of the DoE JGI science and technology that could enhance your research. The workshop will introduce tools and strategies for computational discovery of application-relevant genes and biosynthetic clusters for secondary metabolites using the IMG/MER and IMG-ABC data and analysis platforms. IMG/MER and IMG-ABC tutorials will be presented using examples of research projects addressing questions in bioremediation, biofuels, antimicrobials, plant-microbe interactions and more. Participants will be divided into instructor-led groups and provided with hands-on exercises representing typical use-case scenarios.
