NGSchool

A platform to share expertise in the field of Next Generation Sequencing data analysis and general bioinformatics.

About us

Once upon a time, when druids were stitching ropes with the DNA in the forests of Britannia, when Frankonian wizards were boiling DNA and making healing potions from the decoctions, and when the Vikings were sequencing dinosaurs, deep in the mountains of Vysoké Tatry, wiedźmini decided to reunite in a free society of sorcerers to share the wisdom of the bioinformatic magic with the most talented apprentices. They called it NGSchool.

NGSchool Society

NGSchool Society aims to disseminate bioinformatics knowledge and skills necessary to perform state-of-the-art data analysis from sequencing experiments.

Our goal is to help advance research and industry sectors in this particular field, ensuring further progress of associated areas.

To achieve this goal, we have been organizing an annual summer school since 2016. We provide intensive training on theoretical concepts, hands-on workshops, as well as hackathons. This way, our summer school contributes to the development of participants and improvement of research excellence in their home institutions.
