This workshop targets biologists from all fields [Medical, Pharmaceutical, Environmental, Industrial, Marine & others] and at all carrier levels, interested in building a solid background in bioinformatics. It offers a basic theoretical and practical training on how to use bioinformatics tools and resources to address and solve biological questions therefore boosting their capacities in all fields of biological research. The program is tailored to provide the training needed to integrate computational biology in the daily work-practice. The program combines lectures, tutorials and practical lab sessions.
Upon completion of this course, the participants are expected to:
§ Be able to use the main resources provided by biological data banks for querying these databanks and reading and interpreting meaningful data.
§ Select and use adequate on-line computational tools for sequences analysis and for solving a given biological problem.
§ Get good insights on how today's and tomorrow's bioinformatics and computational biology would help undertaking the challenges facing biological research and biotechnologies in various basic and applied fields.
Participants will benefits from personal contact & tutorial from highly skilled international bioinformatics professionals
