Webinar series: an Introduction to Genomics and Data processing

On April 14th, 2021 GenoMed4All hosted the first in a series of webinars: an introductory session on Genomics and Data processing.

The agenda:

1. Genomics fundamentals: our colleague Babita walked us through a brief introduction to the biological foundations of Genomics and Bioinformatics, common data formats and different Genome Sequencing techniques.

2. Genomic analysis: next up was Genís, who explained in detail the processes of genomic analysis: from mapping, to variant calling, joint genotyping and annotation.

3. Clinical data standards - FHIR, Phenopackets, Beacons: to wrap up the session, Vincent gave us an insightful overview of clinical data standards, their main applications and their relevance in the context of GenoMed4All.
