NGSchool (Next Generation School) is a platform to share expertise in the field of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis and general Bioinformatics.
We organize activities for young researchers who are primarily from Central & Eastern Europe, who have a background in biology/mathematics/informatics, and who strive to improve their bioinformatics and data analysis skills.
Summer school is our flagship annual event - so far we have organised four editions. We also co-organized a number of local events, such as workshops, symposiums, and conferences. This year, when faced with the challange of the pandemic we organised a successful series of online training - NGSeminars and are preparing a 2-day virtual conference - NGSymposium in September. We hope to return to in-person events next year, but after gaining experience in conducting vritual sessions we will increase our presence online.
