Upcoming live training

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.

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

When? We arrange training sessions on a monthly basis. Please see the schedule below.

What? You can find material from previous training sessions and bioinformatics clinics in the links on the left. 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. Also, do not hesitate to get in touch to recommend a topic for upcoming sessions.
