Jose Antonio Corona visits CIPF

JOSE ANTONIO CORONA GOMEZJosé Antonio Corona Gómez from LANGEBIO-CINVESTAV visits CIPF within the DEANN Project  for a period of over a month. The aim of this visit is to learn to implement bioinformatic tools for the assembly and annotated genomes and metagenomes. His specific objectives are: Automated pipeline for genome sequencing and assembly, struactutal annotation of genomes and functional annotation of genomes and metagenomes.

Alejandro Cárdenas visits CIPF

DSCF8361Alejandro Cárdenas from INMEGEN visits CIPF for a period of two months as Early Stage Researcher within the DEANN project. Alejandro will learn and get experience in the analysis, processing and data integration from new generation data sequencing platforms. He will learn and use algorithims focus on RNA-SEQ integration and epigenomic platforms with the idea to adjust the probabilistic graphic model, keypoint in his thesis.

EPIGEN: NGS Workshop “On top of genetics” 22-23 June, Udine, Italy

epigenOn top of Genetics NGS for Epigenetics Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has recently revolutionized the approach to genomic studies enabling the sequencing of billions of bases in massively parallel reactions. These new sequencing technologies have rapidly become the golden stand ard for genome sequencing, transcriptome analysis, SNP discovery and several other applications. However,in very few fields of biological research NGS has produced such a profound impact as in epigenomics studies aimed at investigating the fu[...] Read more
