Genomics in the Virtual Lab is a special opportunity to learn about genomics and big data analysis from a world-renowned scientist and a team of bioinformaticians working on cutting-edge big data challenges in biomedical research. Dr. Sona Vasudevan, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) will present disease-associated projects that program participants can learn from to see how genomics is used at the intersection of data science and biomedicine. In this online program, participants will learn about analysis of high throughput genomics data and apply complex and computationally intensive data processing steps to large-scale public-domain data. After completing the 2-week program, students will gain a deeper understanding of the computational tools that allow scientists to study genomic data to understand genetic diseases and the way our DNA is a key to a more personalized and precise medicine. The program includes 2-hour online lectures and hands-on exercises to provide a mix of theoretical and practical learning opportunities.
