1 Month


Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are critical genetic variations that play significant roles in disease research, personalized medicine, and population genetics. This program offers an in-depth exploration of SNP detection and analysis using NGS technologies. Participants will learn the principles of SNP identification, the technical aspects of NGS platforms, and the bioinformatics tools required for data analysis.

Throughout the one-month program, learners will engage in both theoretical and practical sessions, gaining hands-on experience in preparing samples, running NGS workflows, and interpreting SNP data. The course also covers the applications of SNP analysis in various fields such as genomics, pharmacogenomics, and evolutionary biology. By the end of the program, participants will be proficient in using NGS technologies for SNP detection and equipped to apply these skills in research and industry settings.


The aim of the “Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Detection and Analysis using NGS” program is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to detect and analyze SNPs using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. This program will provide a thorough understanding of the workflows, tools, and techniques essential for SNP analysis in various biological and medical research applications.
