By the end of the training period trainees* will, in respect to developing skills and knowledge required for understanding the scientific basis of WGS, methods, current applications, its potential and have developed a capacity to keep abreast of developments in sequencing technology and software solutions for its application as WGS methods become integrated into mainstream practice, be able to:
*The trainee will learn how to work in tandem with specialists in bioinformatics and information technology.
By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesise relevant knowledge and its application to their professional practice in relation to:
(These aspects will involve learning to work closely with specialists in bioinformatics and IT. The trainee will develop a capacity to track these aspects: as methods become increasingly semi-automated and user- friendly, the trainee will take on an increasingly independent role in managing sequencing assembly and data interpretation).
By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current relevant research, theory and knowledge and its application to the performance, adaptation and mastery of the following technical procedures and laboratory skills:
By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to apply knowledge of the scientific basis of WGS, methods, current applications and its potential be able to perform, adapt and master the clinical skills necessary to:
