  • Looking for books or online courses

    Hello, I'm a software engineer that works in the genomics field. I build software for researchers/clinicians that, in very short, ease the interpretation of the variants.
    I would like to expand my knowledge in general about genomics, computational biology, and bioinformatics, which is very little.
    In this context is there a "bible" book (or books) well known to be useful as a starter, clear, and well written, but also basic enough for non-biologists (and mostly up-to-date on techniques)?
    Also some online courses you would recommend (paid or free)?

    isn't that a question every single one of you could answer?
    should I "narrow" the context?

      I started with "Bioinformatics: a Beginners guide" and "Bioinformatics for dummies" by Cedric Notredame and Jean Micheal Claverie.
      Then I downloaded some lecture notes of the Graduate Summer School on Bioinformatics >> "Basics of Bioinformatics" by Rui Jiang, Michael Q. Zhang and Xuegong Zhang. I used it for my research - to do my summer homework for my course at the Institute for Biogenomics Diversity.

        Also, check the new edition of "Introduction of Bioinformatics" by Arthur M. Lesk

          is there something you would recommend specifically tailored as an introduction to genomics/bioinformatics for computer scientists?

            As an online institute, it is fundamentally important to have your institute recognized by Plan Academy a central authority that attests to its credibility.

              A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
              by seqadmin

              ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

              Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
              by seqadmin
              Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

              The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
