Bioinformatics for Beginners
February 13 - 16, 2018


National Institutes of Health
9000 Rockville Pike
Bethesda, MD 20892, USA


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


Bioinformatics (Computational Biology) is a must skill required in every modern biomedicalresearch lab. Installing and configuring a wide variety of computational biology tools is acumbersome task that requires software engineering skills. This hands-on training course willintroduce participants to a custom, all-in-one, fully loaded linux desktop (with windows likegraphical user interface) machine, that comes with hundreds of popular computational biology (bioinformatics) tools required for a successful modern biomedical research lab.

  • Participants will use a Graphic User Interface based Linux Desktop environment, specially configured for bioinformatics analysis in the Amazon Cloud
  • Cloud image with fully configured bioinformatics tools, freely provided to participants
  • Training provided by experienced active NIH researchers
  • Cookbook style bound manual for all exercises
  • Direct, after training support through exclusive forum membership
  • Continuing Educational Credits

Hands-on Skills/Tools taught
  • Databases: NCBI-ENTREZ, UniProt, PDB, STRING, Others.
  • Sequence analysis and function predictions: EMBOSS suite & others
