Why? The purpose of these sessions are to train researchers to leverage the Genomics England clinical and genomic data, to assist them in their analysis, and also foster an environment where users from different backgrounds, skill sets, fields and coding abilities can set up collaborations and help each other across GECIP domains and Discovery Forum companies.

Who? These sessions will be accessible to all users eligible to access the Research Environment / Genomics England dataset - including both Discovery Forum and GECIP members.

When? We are aiming to arrange training sessions on a bimonthly basis. Please see the schedule below.

What? You can find material from previous training sessions and 'bioinformatics clinics' below. What comes next depends on you, so don't hesitate to reach out to us with suggestions on what to cover in upcoming sessions.

Where? All training sessions will be held online via Zoom and recordings of the session will be made available afterwards with all sensitive data removed.

Check this page regularly for updates on the next training session and course material for previous sessions. Also, do not hesitate to get in touch to recommend a topic for upcoming sessions. You can reach us by e-mailing [email protected]
