Registrations are now open for the Amity University Summer Bioinformatics Program at the Kolkata campus. The 3-month bioinformatics training program will introduce students to important topics in life science research, biomedical sciences and relevant industry topics (pharmaceutical R&D, drug discovery, diagnostics and many others). The curriculum is built to provide a broad overview of important data analysis techniques for biological data. These methods are critical for anyone pursuing a degree in biotechnology, biochemistry, ecology, as well as medical sciences. The role of data in biology is growing in importance. New types of “high-throughput” data, advanced analysis techniques and proliferation of reference databases are all important to master for the future of this field.
While Bioinformatics can be a hard discipline to grasp for someone without proficiencies in coding, algorithms, mathematics and statistics, it is no longer a discipline that can be ignored or outsourced. No significant research project can be published without some bioinformatics analysis. Even if you do not chose to take up this discipline as the primary one, you need to be exposed to the logic of data analysis and understand how it is used in various domains like oncology, immunology, infectious diseases, neuroscience and others.
To make an introduction to bioinformatics, we will cover important aspects of various data types and their uses in the upcoming Introduction to Bioinformatics Summer program at Amity University, Kolkata. The program starts July 19th, 2019. The registrations are now open.
