This summer school is primarily designed for undergraduate and graduate students.

It aims to introduce quantitative methods for studying complex dynamics in biological systems.

Topics include : SNP calling, Genome assembly, GWAS

Each course day will be a combination of lectures and hands-on tutorials. 

The practical part will be performed both on the linux command line an in R. Prior knowledge of both is not a prerequisite.

Registration is closed. Applicant will be informed about acceptance during the week.
