Training in Genomics Data Science
Why study Genomics Data Science?
A genome is the DNA or genetic material of an organism and it contains all of the information needed to build that organism. Genomics is the study of the genomes and modern genomics technologies such as high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies generate vast amounts of genomics data.
Genomics Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that applies statistics and the tools of data science to analyze and interpret the data generated by modern genomics technologies. Data generated by these technologies is often termed multi-omics data and can include information on DNA, RNA, proteins, epigenetic modifications and metabolites, amongst others. Genomics Data Science allows us to better understand biological systems, and to leverage genomic technologies to benefit science, medicine, society and the economy.
