Workshop Highlights

KSI Graduate School offers an integrated bioinformatics workshop for continuing scientific training of research practitioners and bioinformatics students, who are typically from a computer science or life science background. The Workshop covers mainstream research topics in a series of short, accelerated modules. All modules will focus on various case studies in biological informatics and computational analyses. The Workshop walks you step-by-step through live samples of bioinformatics development projects and enables you to learn hands-on problems, designs, and solutions to overcome fundamental bio-data analytical challenges. The Workshop also showcases the state-of-the-art tools being developed, integrated, and applied in the forefront of biomedical and pharmaceutical research settings.
