Attendance is free for members of ETH, but registration is required. Please register here.

Due to space reasons, the number of participants is limited to 60. Registrations will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. However the organizers reserve the right to accept or deny registrations to ensure that a single group does not monopolize the workshop.


Hands-on sessions require that participants bring their own laptop with CLC Genomics Workbench 9.0.1 installed. This software can be downloaded from the IT Shop of ETH.

Participants who wish to use the CLC Genomics Server on the Euler cluster should contact cluster support one week before the workshop.
