With the increasing availability of cheaper sequencing technologies and an unprecedented availability of data, research of infectious pathogens rely on advanced analysis methods, algorithms and visualization tools to study viral and bacterial samples. This makes Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases research an integral part in understanding the origin and virulence of diseases like SARS, MERS, Ebola or the currently ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and finding potential cures.
With the Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases, we present to you a 1 month online training program designed to introduce students, clinicians and researchers to the role and the applications of bioinformatics to the study of pathogenic microorganisms and their interaction with the host which lead to and enable human disease. Using examples from peer-reviewed publications, participants will learn to apply bioinformatics tools to publicly available genomic and transcriptomic data on Ebola virus, Sars-COV-2, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens. The program includes 10 online sessions, 6 asynchronous courses and several curated datasets.

We also welcome you to join us for a free webinar on Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases. In this session, we will discuss how genomic data and bioinformatics are being used to study viral and bacterial pathogens and play a major role in the current biomedical research around the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar is designed for students and faculty interested in methods of analysis, including RNA and DNA sequencing data.
Date – November 06, 2020, 1 PM CST,
Please register to receive the Zoom link: https://edu.tbioinfo.com/bioinformatics-for-infectious-diseases-webinar
Topics we will cover:
- Analysis methods and tools for genomic and transcriptomic data analysis of host-pathogen interaction
- Methods to study relationships based on local and global multiple sequence alignment (MSA)
- Phylogenetic analysis and evolutionary studies used for genome ancestry and population fitness
- Chemical and structural implications of sequence variation mapped on PDB models
- Host-pathogen interaction and treatment response
We will also showcase some of the latest developments on the T-BioInfo platform designed for virology studies and introduce the upcoming OmicsLogic training programs for those interested in effective utilization of bioinformatics for infectious diseases, immunology and microbiology.
We hope you can join us this Friday and for the full program starting on November 09, 2020. For any further information, we can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
