The selected participants will receive an email with the acceptance letter together with information and details regarding the payment procedure on 22th June 2022. Payments will be made through bank transfer.
Selection will be based on the CVs and motivation letters of the applications, with the aims of favouring (1) early stage researchers (i.e., PhD students and postdocs), (2) balanced geographical origin with an emphasis on countries and institutions where genomic expertise is currently scarce, (3) gender balance. Applicants who demonstrate in their motivation letter that knowledge of genome assembly and downstream analyses is important for their short-term research and/or career plans will be favoured. Multiple applications from the same group are discouraged - instead, we expect participants to share with the other members of their groups the knowledge and know-how they will have acquired during the course.
A working knowledge of the shell environment will be required by the beginning of the course but is not a prerequisite for selection - selected applicants with no prior knowledge of command line tools should get acquainted with the shell environments by following the online tutorial prior to arriving in Brussels.
In order to facilitate interactions between participants, the course will start with a poster session on the first day and the posters will remain on display in the breakout room throughout the course. Posters should provide a general overview of each participant’s present research, with abstracts less than 300 words in length.
Maximum poster size (A0 format) - 841 mm (width) x 1189 mm (height). A passport-style photograph of the presenting participant should be included in the upper-left corner of each poster.
