Introduction to Bioinformatics
This is an introductory course that covers the topics of big data bioinformatics and its uses in basic research, healthcare, and the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. In many ways, advances in this discipline have helped make major discoveries in the recent years leading to new opportunities. That is why many biologists are starting to see data skills as essential to their studies and research.
The topics are organized into 3 major segments:
- Introduction to Big Data Bioinformatics
- Bioinformatics in Healthcare
- Translational Bioinformatics
This course is designed to introduce undergraduate and graduate-level students in biology or related fields to the field of bioinformatics, or the intersection of informatics and biology, and the opportunities that come with the available big data for research and industry. Students will receive an introduction to some of the many exciting ways this discipline is applied in health care, agriculture, environmental sciences, public health, and more.
The course begins with a survey and concludes with an 8-question evaluation at the end. The assessment is a multiple-choice survey that should only take a few minutes to complete. There is a completion certificate available for students completing all of the lessons and quizzes in this course.

Introduction to Bioinformatics
I love the course flow of thought and amazing videos.
Interactive and practical
Introduction to Bioinformatics represents a great opportunity to bolster knowledge on the biological data science since information grew up exponentially, it is necessary to count with tools offered by bioinformatics to handle this kind of information. In Pine-Biotech I could explore other applications using bioinformatics confirming the necessity of scientists to immersing in this field.
An amazing course for beginners
The course helped me learn many forgotten paths of learning and enlightened with some new enriched avenues for learning and research.
Great start for learners..
This course has been designed in a very precise and accurate manner for the learners. It helped me to think in the direction that how bioinformatics is taking place in our day to day life and what is the impact of big data analysis in the coming future. Really great startup course.
Introduction To Bioinformatics: The ABC to Big Data and Data Analysis
Your first and foremost step to learning all about Bioinfomatics. It is all about the basics to Big Data, Data Analysis and Omics. Very detailed course but crisp with quizzes to examine how much you have understood, it is the complete package. It is a great quickstart guide for anyone looking into pursuing this field.
