The Program of the Summer school in bioinformatics 2022

Applicants for the Summer school in bioinformatics 2022 were selected based on their previous knowledge and experience and their motivation to attend. Please check your homework before attending the school :)


Whole genome comparison

MIcrobial metagenomics

Please check in later to see the full program and activities at the summer school. In summary, first part of the Summer school will focus on whole genome comparisons and visualizations (R) and the second part will cover metagenomics (amplicon sequencing and genome-centric metagenomics).

Our lecturers will be dr. Ulisses Nunes da Rocha from the UFZ Helmoltz, Germany and dr. Mikael Lenz Strube from the DTU Denmark.

About ME

I am Polonca Stefanic, an assistant professor at the Biotechnical faculty, University of Ljubljana. In the summer of 2021 I organized the first summer school in bioinformatics, which took place at the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, in July (19-23.7.2021). 

I have extensive experience in B. subtilis quorum sensing, but now my biggest passion resides in kin discrimination and its consequences on the survival, horizontal transfer and evolution of this species. I am also involved in a project investigating Bacillus strains as potential plant growth promoters (PGP), where we isolate and test new strains for PGP and biocontrol activity against different bacterial pathogens. Besides, I take part in an inter-species interaction project, where we test the ability of Bacillus species to act against Campylobacter in different setting. Always open to new collaborations and enjoy visiting research labs as a foreign scholar. Recently (2yrs ago) I started introducing bioinformatics to my work and through collaborations I have met many excellent teachers and experts in the field, allowing me to invite them to the school as lecturers.



The summer school would not be possible without our sponsors and we thank each one for supporting us.
