BioInfoSummer is a major annual bioinformatics educational and outreach event in Australia, bringing together in excess of 150 biologists, statisticians and bioinformatics professionals.
Bioinformatics creates biological information and knowledge by the acquisition, archiving, integration, analysis and interpretation of biological data. Biotechnology, drug development, medicine, cancer research, agriculture and plant science are just a few of the many areas in which bioinformatics is having a massive impact.
The program covers state-of-the-art technologies used in medical and biological research and also teaches fundamentals of data analysis. Many prominent researchers, both national and international will give lectures in the program.
Daily themes are:
Monday 2 December: Introduction to Biology and Bioinformatics
Tuesday 3 December: Evolutionary Biology
Wednesday 4 December: Systems Biology
Thursday 5 December: Next Generation Sequencing
Friday 6 December: Coding and Algorithms for Bioinformatics
Student travel awards are available.
