A premier annual bioinformatics training event in Australia for 13 years, the Winter School in Mathematical & Computational Biology will be held 4 to 8 July 2016 at the Institute for Molecular Science, The University of Queensland, St Lucia. Only $260 for the whole week for early bird students!
The series of winter schools is designed to introduce bioinformatics, mathematical and computational biology to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and others working in the fields of biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, complex systems analysis, and chemical and medical sciences and engineering.
* Next generation sequencing & bioinformatics
* Bioinformatics methods, models and applications to disease
* Advanced bio-data visualisation
Prof. Burkhard Rost,Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany
Prof. Edward DeLong, University of Hawaii, USA
Dr Seán O'Donoghue, Garvan Institute of Medical Research, CSIRO
Dr Mathieu Bourgey, McGill University, Canada
Dr Kate Patterson, Garvan Institute of Medical Research
Speakers at Winter School are chosen as great presenters and world leaders in their field. See website for the complete list of 30 or so speakers and presentation titles.
WORKSHOP & BOOTCAMP
A Genomics Virtual Laboratory training workshop (limited places) will be run during the Winter School on Wednesday 6th July. A Software Carpentry Bootcamp (11-12 July) is also being run in conjunction with the Winter School. Both events were fully subscribed in days last year, so register early to avoid disappointment.
FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS WINTER SCHOOLS
“Fantastic speakers.” “Great networking opportunities.”
“It takes special talent to pull off a conference people actually enjoy attending and it was thanks to some of the more charismatic orators, that I was able to enjoy the Winter School so much.”
“Gave me the confidence I need to talk to other people and bioinformaticians about the analysis of my NGS data. Thanks."
