This course will provide participants with methods and techniques for training other professionals in analysis of genomics as applied in clinical management and public health. It integrates pedagogical aspects with pathogen genomic analysis, application and interpretation for management and surveillance of infectious disease.


  • The course will run over 3 days and includes topics on adult learning principles, overview of genomics data pipelines and development of networking and mentoring platforms.

Learning outcomes

  • At the end of the course, trainees will be able to:
  • Explain the flow of pathogen genomic data/information from generation to interpretation in healthcare and public health settings.
  • Design training and communication formats by applying evidence-based learning science methodologies.
  • Identify appropriate training resources for use in training pathogen genomics and surveillance tools.
  • Deliver pathogen genomic data science training to professionals working in genomic epidemiology, surveillance and outbreak investigation.
  • Evaluate the self-developed training and knowledge sharing of pathogen genomic data science.


We invite applicants based in the UK and Ireland, from research, healthcare and training professionals who are involved in any aspect of genomics or data science, and who are interested in building their capabilities to effectively share their knowledge and skills with others focused on pathogen genomic analysis, application and interpretation in management of infectious disease. This includes clinical, biomedical, and public health scientists, epidemiologists, bioinformaticians.
Applicants may also be involved in genomics technologies and computational biology training programmes, and interested in developing training resources for potential application of pathogen genomics in healthcare and public health.
