Bioinformatics Needed For NGS Analysis

Title Of The event: Bioinformatics Needed For NGS Analysis

Date: December, 2nd and 3rd, 2021

Framework Of the event:

The “Bioinformatics Needed For NGS Analysis” Workshop is part of the SEED WP4 (Building capacity in genetic diagnosis of EE through NGS). This workshop is part of the second WP4 task: T4.2: “Training on bioinformatics” coming after the molecular analysis skills.  This workshop was performed as a complementary session to the plenary conference organized in January 2020 “NGS Lecture day entitled NGS For Clinical Diagnosis” and to the two virtual workshop “Capacity Building in NGS gene Panel Design” organized in October 2020 and “Libraries and Sequencing” organized in August 2021. As mentioned in the SEED GA: “The first organized workshop in SU will be adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and to allow scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new research topic”.

First Investigator: AMU: Prof Laurent VILLARD, USF, UA

The program, as well as the speakers, was proposed by the team of The Aix Marseille University (AMU) as a SEED project partner and as part of the WP4. The oral presentations took place in french language.

Event Location: 

This workshop was organized in hybrid on December, 2 and 3, 2021:

  1. SEED Sfax team and the participants of sfax met in presential at the faculty of medicine of Sfax
  2. SEED AMU team and the participants of Genome Tunisia by videoconference via Zoom. 

The organization of the face-to-face workshop was provided by SEED SU PM with 5 SEED ESR from the three categories of ESR (clinical: Olfa Jallouli and Salma Mallouli; Medical genetics: Améni Aguech; NGS: Manel Guirat and Souhir Guidara)


The workshop did not have a public broadcast. The selection of the participants was based on the fact of ensuring the consistency of the seed training and on the opening on the institutions in Tunisia. In this respect, the same participants of the “gene panel design” and libraries and sequencing workshop were selected.
