The Philippine Genome Center and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is holding an international workshop on “Genomic Epidemiology on Infectious Diseases in the Philippines” on 03-07 July 2017 at the National Science Complex in University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.
This Workshop will bring together global experts on the study of genomic epidemiology of infectious diseases, particularly those affecting the Philippines. The Workshops aims to promote collaborations that will enhance the use of tools in bioinformatics, population genetics and statistics in infectious disease research. Days one and five of the Workshop, which will be held at the Institute of Biology auditorium, will focus on presentations and discussions relating to the role of genomics in the prevention and control of infectious diseases, with a focus on the Philippines. The other days, which will be held at the Computational Science and Research Center, will focus on genomic analyses with hands-on exercises. By the end of the Workshop, participants will be able to: (a) process raw sequence into a set of informative variants, through mapping to a reference genome or using de novo or reference-free assembly approaches, (b) conduct transcriptomic and proteomic analysis, in an integrated systems biology approach, and (c) perform downstream population genetic and association analysis.
