A training program for those interested to start a Bioinformatics Research Project
Answering a research question starting from hypothesis testing to Big Data analysis and then interpretation of results is a long and difficult journey. Most of the time, the difficulties are due to lack of experience, limited resources and tools to effectively handle data, keep track of and easily play around with the accumulating datasets. Expert guidance plays an important role in a research project and can help streamline and simplify some of these tasks. Seeing these challenges, we are offering a Summer Online Training in Bioinformatics program to help students and young researchers who have ideas & interest in working on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis. This specialized short program is aimed at introducing participants to the comprehensive Big Data Analysis T-Bioinfo Platform and its specialized sections organized by omics data type and analysis category.
The T-BioInfo platform is designed for bioinformatics analysis of big multi-omics data and is designed to be used without many of the technical prerequisites such tools typically need – therefore it allows biologists, clinicians, and students to use bioinformatics for analysis of big data. The platform hides the complexities of data processing, analysis, and integration behind a user friendly and intuitive interface and offers a consistent, logical web-based interface that requires minimal computation infrastructure for the users. Developed by a team of renowned experts in computational biology at the Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center (University of Haifa, Israel), the platform is used by universities around the world and was instrumental in a variety of projects published in high-impact journals.
Every day we meet researchers & students who are either interested or are already working on some aspect of research involving Bioinformatics. In this summer online bioinformatics training program, the participants will learn about processing various types of data to detect DNA variants, quantify gene and isoform expression, study microbial diversity and estimate epigenomic regulation at the methylation and chromatin levels. We will also learn about downstream analysis for systems biology, integration and biological annotation.
This comprehensive and yet compact program will guide participants to use the platform for various kinds of data analysis. Starting from uploading and managing files (FTP, NCBI, SVL) followed by the understanding of key processing pipelines for NGS and then focusing on annotating and visualizing analysis results.
What does this online program include?
- Instructor support, advice and guidance
- Tracking and interaction with student activity
- Access to online resources and materials for self-paced learning
- Access to educational & research pipelines on our big data server for 15 days (server.t-bio.info).
The program will start on May 27 with five interactive tutorial sessions by an experienced bioinformatician to help translate your ideas into research questions.
Date & Duration: 27 May – 10 June ( 15-days)
