This course provides hands-on instruction for researchers in the biological sciences interested in applying bioinformatics tools for research on neglected parasitic diseases.


 
Week 2: June 19-23, 2017

Advanced TB Diagnostics

June 19-23, 2017

This advanced course will cover advanced topics in TB diagnostics research and implementation, including incremental value of  new tests, impact of new tests on  clinical decision-making and therapeutic choices, cost-effectiveness in routine programmatic settings, and impact on patient-important outcomes.


 

Introduction to Genomic Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases

June 19-23, 2017

This course will provide an intensive introduction to the methods used for analysis of whole genome sequencing (WGS) data and its application to infectious disease  epidemiology. Students will learn bioinformatics approaches to WGS analysis through a combination of lectures and hands-on workshops.


 

Qualitative Methods of Global Infectious Diseases

June 19-23, 2017

Course will cover advanced topics in TB diagnostics research and implementation, including incremental value of new tests, impact of new tests on clinical decision‐making and therapeutic choices, cost‐effectiveness in routine programmatic settings, and impact on patient‐important outcomes.
