National Institutes of Health(ONLINE)

9000 Rockville Pike

Building 60, Room 162

Bethesda, MD 20892, USA


Background

Bioinformatics (Computational Biology) is a must skill required in every modern biomedical research lab. Installing and configuring a wide variety of computational biology tools is a cumbersome task that requires software engineering skills. This hands-on training course will introduce participants to a comprehensive set of bioinformatics concepts, tools and techniques, using a cloud based, all-in-one, fully loaded linux desktop (with windows like graphical user interface) machine, that comes with hundreds of popular computational biology (bioinformatics) tools required for a successful modern biomedical research lab.

Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for adequate learning experience. Examples include two laptops, one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, etc.

Objectives

The participants will be provided with end-to-end hands-on training, along with an introduction to basic concepts, in using popular tools and techniques for sequence analysis, structure analysis, function prediction, biological database searching, “omics” data analysis, pathway analysis, data visualization, data curation and integration, linux, R, perl and scripting basics.

Highlights

  • Participants will use a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment, specially configured for bioinformatics analysis in the Amazon Cloud
  • Training provided by experienced active NIH researchers
  • PDF of a cookbook style manual for all exercises
  • Continuing Education Credits
