Breast Cancer Bioinformatics Course
Wednesday 17 May 2017
Bioinformatics is a new interdisciplinary area involving biological and computer sciences. Bioinformatics will enable researchers not only to manage, analyse, mine and understand the currently accumulated valuable high-throughput data, but also to integrate these in their current research program. The need for bioinformatics will become ever more important as new technologies increase the already exponential rate at which biological data is generated.
Our one day breast cancer bioinformatics course, funded by Breast Cancer Now, offers an introduction to the use of bioinformatics. These courses offer a unique opportunity for breast cancer biologists and clinicians to gain a basic understanding in the use of bioinformatics methods to access and harness large complicated high-throughput data and uncover meaningful information that could be used to understand molecular mechanisms and develop novel targeted therapeutics and diagnostic tools. There will be a limited number of funded places available on the next course.
For further details please contact the course leader, Prof Claude Chelala.
