  • Aim of the course
    The main objectives of the course are to familiarize young scientists (Biologists, Computer Scientists, Mathematicians or Statisticians ) wit h bioinformatics and genome data analysis skills and to encourage multi-disciplinarity by introducing:
    1- advanced fundamental algorithms in bioinformatics,
    2- their application in genome analyses,
    3- and recent knowledge acquired from genome studies and perspectives.

    The course is aimed at motivated Ph.D and Post-doctoral students, as well as young (under age 35) assistant professors in Academic Institutions with background in Mathematics, Statistics, Biology or Computing, who are involved in Bioinformatics and Genomes studies.
    Twenty (20) full time places are available for the course. Acceptance will be subject to an evaluation process. Selection criteria include confirmed initial experience in Bioinformatics and Genomics, running projects and expressed motivations.
