The course aims to provide an introduction to the field of bioinformatics, with a focus on important bioinformatics tools, and resources. The course aims to use a combination of theoretical and practical sessions in order for participants to gain practical experience in using various tools and resources.
The course is aimed at individuals from a molecular biology background who have a basic understanding of biochemistry and/or genetics and would like to become bioinformatics users. For an explanation on who ‘bioinformatics users’ might be, see Figure 2 in http://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003496. A baseline level of the understanding of the central dogma of biology (DNA -> RNA -> Protein) is a requirement.
