The post-genomic era heralds much awaited great discoveries in the field of science and
Newer and faster high-throughput technologies are driving the exponential growth of biological data.
The key to the new discoveries lies in the methods and tools available to mine and interrogate the data,
providing biologists with better insights.
In this seven-day workshop, we cover essential bioinformatics topics, such as biological databases
and bioinformatics tools, sequence comparison, biological pattern / profile search and 3D structure
visualisation and modelling, with hands-on practicals on the theories and concepts covered.
This will empower the participants with the foundation necessary to manage and mine the wealth of
available biological data to address complex research problems.
This workshop, co-organized with Malaysia Genome Institute (MGI), and endorsed by Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet), is part of the Bioinformatics Education and Research Initiative of Perdana University (PU).
