BGI Bioinformatics Workshop on Diseases

June 16-20, 2014, Shenzhen, China

With the application of high-throughput sequencing technology and the development of genomics, the study model of

human diseases has been gradually shifted from hypothesis-oriented to data-oriented. Such data-oriented, large-scale, 

industrialized study mode, is taking great advance to study from the genomic level, transcriptomic level as well as the

epigenomic level, which makes it possible to go on a multi-level research. In order to provide our researchers with

innovative iideas, new strategies and techniques, this workshop will focus on sequencing technology in DNA, RNA and

epigenetic level for human disease research, which includes methods and prospects. This workshop will introduce whole 

genome resequencing, exome sequencing and personalized target region sequencing technologies at DNA level.While

transcriptome sequencing engages to identify complex disease genotyping and molecular markers, screen drug targets 

and find out related genes or structural variation at RNA level. As for epigenomic level, you will see the map of whole

genome methylation and that of histone / transcription factor binding regions through bisulfite sequencing, MeDIP 

sequencing and ChIP sequencing, which helps to illustrate the pathogenic mechanisms of epigenetic modification in 

related disease.

We are looking forward to your participation at BGI Workshop.
