CSI-ENS Bioinformatics Workshop Program

Registration for this workshop series is now CLOSED. 

As a part of our partnership with the Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris under the Merlion Program, we are glad to announce a Workshop series in Bioinformatics during the months of February and March 2017. Several sessions will be proposed to biologists and trained bioinformaticians from CSI.

These sessions will cover a wide range of topics such as RNAseq and ChIPseq dataset analysis as well as an introduction to system biology and genes network modeling. For this event, we are inviting bioinformatician experts in the field of NGS analysis and genes network modeling, including Prof. Denis Thieffry (Senior PI, ENS), Dr. Laurent Jourdren (Bioinformatics core, ENS), Dr. Andrei Zinovyev (Senior Scientist, Institut Curie), Dr. Daan Noordermeer (Senior PI, I2BC), Mrs. Celine Hernandez (PhD Student, ENS) and Mr. Samuel Collombet (PhD Student, ENS). Instructors from CSI include Dr. Touati Benoukraf (Special fellow), Mr. Roberto Tirado-Magallanes (PhD Student) and Mr. Xiaoxuan Lin (PhD Student).

The following 8 sessions will be provided to 15-20 attendees per session, and all attendees MUST bring their own laptops. Please note that registration will be offered on a first-come-first served basis.
