INCF Short Course on Neuroinformatics, Neurogenomics and Brain Disease


In this course at an idyllic European location, we discuss and demonstrate neuroinformatics tools and public data resources in the context of neurogenomics and brain diseases. The mornings and evenings are filled with lectures on areas of neuroscience in which large datasets are becoming available. Students and lecturers together will attempt to apply the new tools and datasets to answer specific research questions. Our aim is to have jointly written draft papers by the end of the course.

All neuroscientists with an interest in neuroinformatics, neurogenomics or brain disease are welcome. We aim for about 40 participants.

Lodging, food and coffee will be provided. The course fee is 100 euros only.
