Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases

Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases is an 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 Ebolavirus, Sars-COV-2, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens. The program includes 10 online sessions, 6 asynchronous courses and several curated datasets.
