Thanks to an R25 NIH grant, there are no registration fees. However, because space will be limited to 20 participants, applications to join the course will be accepted until Wednesday April 10, 2019, 5pm EST.

Information about the workshop

This two-day, in-person hands-on workshop for faculty at any level in public and private academic institutions, will cover major concepts, methods and tools of translational bioinformatics and hands-on computer based exercises utilizing web-based bioinformatics resources - such as Georgetown Database of Cancer (G-DOC)- a unique translational research platform for connecting molecular and clinical data, the Universal Protein Resource, UniProt, and TCGA. Additional hands-on experience will be provided on systems biology level analysis of experimental multi-omics biomarkers discovery using pathway analysis tools.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to

  • Understand current data generation technologies used in translational research
  • Identify which tools and/or resources to use to perform specific bioinformatics analysis related to translational research
  • Perform basic systems level analysis of large-scale multi-omics data
