[Summary ] 

The 7th joint international doctoral course on the subject  “Bioinformatics analysis of gene regulation in omics data and its applications to medical problems”, between the RIKEN Center for Life Science Technologies, Division of Genomic Technologies and Karolinska Institutet, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (Sweden) will be held from February 23rd to March 1st, 2017 at RIKEN Center for Life Science Technologies, Division of Genomic Technologies, Yokohama, Japan.

Its main purpose is to give doctoral students the possibility to learn about molecular biology from cutting-edge researchers from leading international research institutes. Doctoral students in medical, biological, or biology-related areas currently studying in graduate schools either in Sweden or Japan can participate. Students from Japanese universities can apply for participation now. The course will be held in an international environment with English as a course language. Applicants are screened and accepted based on suitability and motivation. Participants who successfully pass the course examination will receive a certificate of completion.

  • The registration has been closed. For details and inquiries, please contact ki_riken_course.gsc■riken.jp(■→@)
  • Register here.

[Participation ] 

No tuition. The participants pay for travel, daily expenses and accommodation if needed.

[Course content ] 

Principles of gene regulation in non-disease cases and dysregulation in diseases at individual locus level as well as on genome-wide level.

Principles of sequencing based genomics technologies and corresponding bioinformatics data analysis. Concrete bioinformatics data analysis by the students of selected published projects.

After the completed course, the participants will be able to understand the principles and perform basic bioinformatics analysis of genomics sequencing data. The participants will be able to plan experimental designs and to critically evaluate the appropriateness of the different sequencing based omics methods and technologies for genome-wide gene regulation studies.

[Course examination ] 

The students will be examined for knowledge and skills, individually based on the active participation in discussions and group seminar presentations.

The students are examined with both group and individual presentations in English. The students will work in small groups of 2- 3 students. Each group will receive a scientific question related to the course topic on the first day of the course. Students are welcome to propose such a question for their own group. The content has to be related to the course topic. The scientific question will be answered and discussed by the students on the last day of the course during the course evaluation. Each group will be asked to make an oral presentation of the results and each student will present part of the results. The course lecturers will evaluate the performance of each of the students individually. Based on each student’s performance during the examination, it will be determined if the student pass the examination or not.

Students who successfully pass the examination will receive certificate of completion. Special requirements for certificates from the students’ university can be considered. Please contact the course administration before the course if any such requirements exist.

[Guidelines for applicants] 

Eligible applicants

Doctoral students (medical sciences, biology or related fields) currently enrolled in universities in Japan. Doctoral students  enrolled at Universities outside Japan but working in Japanese research institutes can apply and are asked to clarify the details of their multiple affiliations in the application (what is the main location of their work? What is the nature of the association with   the Japanese institute? etc.). The screening process for students from Swedish universities is already completed.

Number of participants and screening procedures

The maximum number of participants from Japanese universities will be up to 20. Participants will be selected after screening of the application materials by course directors and researchers involved in the course organization and teaching. The most important evaluation criterion is the statement of the motivation of attendance. Please explain why you are interested in participating, how the course relates to your current research and how your work will benefit from the course.
