Bioinformatics for Precision Medicine

Precision medicine is changing the way we understand, diagnose and treat major life-threatening diseases. The transformation is driven by high-throughput molecular data from patients, animal models, and large-scale experiments.
In this program, we will explore how the various -omics data types can be analyzed to understand the basic biology associated with viruses & hosts, cancer onset & development and outcomes and see how large-scale clinical trials and experiments provide an opportunity to improve precision medicine. In the later part of the program, we will learn about virology and immunology and the use of bioinformatics for infectious disease research, diagnostics as well as drug and vaccine development.
