Bioinformatics has become an essential skill for the analysis of data of various kinds: genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, metabolomes, macromolecular structures, interaction networks. The appropriation by biologists of biostatistics and integrative bioinformatics methods and tools is a major challenge for the development of the skills of research teams and service platforms.
The University of Paris, in partnership with the Institut Français de Bioinformatique (IFB), is offering the third edition of the University Diploma in Integrative Bioinformatics (DUBii). This course is aimed primarily at biologists or doctors who wish to develop their skills or consider a professional reconversion and who have already acquired skills (short training, self-study, field experience) in computer science or bioinformatics / biostatistics (Unix, Python or R environment or other programming language). The prerequisites are described on the "DU" portal of the University of Paris, which presents the DUBii and the complementary DU "Création, Analyse et Valorisation de Données Omiques" (DUO).
The DUBii will provide theoretical and practical training, completed by a 20-day immersion period on one of the IFB's regional platforms, which will mobilise, within the framework of a tutored project, all the methods and tools learned during the courses to carry out a personal project in integrative bioinformatics. This project will combine data specific to each participant produced in his laboratory (BYOD principle: "Bring Your Own Data") or collected from public databases.
This training will take place over a period of 8 weeks divided between :
Application forms can be downloaded from the DUBii page of the University of Paris and must be submitted no later than 15 November 2020.
