The bioinformatics workshops are developed by the researchers at the Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center at University of Haifa, Israel in collaboration with academic centers across the US. Technical support for the workshops is provided by the Pine Biotech team.

Technical requirements:

Participants must have a laptop/desktop computer with internet access. Spreadsheet analysis software is used for simple analyses of pipeline results in most of the exercises. A working version of Excel or other spreadsheet analysis software is necessary to follow these examples. Most of the analysis steps will be done using the platform. No coding or statistics background is required to participate in the workshop, however basic cell biology and biostatistics will be beneficial. In preparation for the workshop, everyone is encouraged to complete the online course material available at


Workshop participants will receive a certificate of participation from the Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center and Pine Biotech. In some cases, the certificate will be recognized by other partner institutions.

Expected outcomes:

Participants will have hands-on experience with omics data, including transcriptomic and genomic Next Generation Sequencing data. For each workshop, we set a number of specific goals and open the discussion to address real-life challenges faced by participants with their own data or workflows for critical review.
