Introduction to Big Data in Life Sciences

The program is designed for biologists, clinicians and researchers or students that are interested in advancing their understanding of big data in life sciences. The program will not require any background in coding, bioinformatics or biostatistics, however we will speak about topics related to cell and molecular biology and utilize terminology coming from biostatistics and data science domains. Anyone with a good handle on biological sciences at an undergraduate university level is welcome to join. The program is conducted by experienced biologists and bioinformaticians versed in applications of bioinformatics in biomedicine, agrobiology and biotechnology.

In the program, you will learn about the impact of the genomic revolution, next-generation sequencing and computational technologies in every area of life sciences: research, biomedical, biotechnology, and agrobiology. You will also learn to find, understand and analyze data using high-performance computing and user-friendly tools for biologists.
