The Bioinformatics Core runs regular training courses covering a range of topics in bioinformatics and statistics. Many of these are classroom-based courses run in partnership with the University’s Bioinformatics Training Facility with an emphasis on hands-on, practical-based learning.
We also run the very popular annual CRUK Bioinformatics Summer School, offering a week-long residential training course in analysis of genomic sequencing data to CRUK-funded scientists from across the UK.
Details of our upcoming courses can be found here.
