Integrative Bioinformatics Thematic School


Integrative bioinformatics: main concepts, practical application and development of teaching materials


Description of the training

In order to federate skills in integrative bioinformatics within the community, the IFB proposes a new thematic school with a double objective:

  • an increase in the theoretical and practical skills of bioinformaticians,
  • the development of shared educational material on this topic

This school gathers a pedagogical team of 10 people and will be able to welcome 30 participants for its first edition.

The whole training will be based on the use of the computational resources and the pedagogical platform of the French Institute of Bioinformatics


Target audience

This training is open to the whole community but this first edition is primarily aimed at bioinformaticians from IFB member platforms and associated teams wishing to improve their skills on this subject and to contribute to the constitution of pedagogical material in order to prepare for future training sessions on this theme. 


Pedagogical objectives

The training aims to:

  • to introduce the basic concepts and the different types of approaches used in integrative bioinformatics,
  • to propose a deepening and a practical implementation of one of these approaches on one or several datasets integrating different types of omics data. 
  • to create, improve and share educational resources (training materials, datasets, tutorials) on the theme of integrative bioinformatics.


At the end of this training the participants :

  • will have acquired a general knowledge base in integrative bioinformatics, 
  • will have implemented an integrative analysis from data preparation to critical analysis of results on a proposed dataset(s) during the training,
  • will have contributed to the development of shared educational material on the subject.



  • Basic knowledge of Unix/shell, R, Python
  • Autonomy in the management of his workstation (installation of libraries and mastery of packaging environments like conda)

Teaching team

The teaching team is composed of Anaïs Baudot, Morgane Terezol, Carl Herrmann, Delphine Potier, Alban Gaignard, Olivier Dameron, Jimmy Vandel, Hélène Chiapello, Olivier Sand, Lucie Khamvongsa-Charbonnier.



The school takes place over 5 days (Monday-Friday) with 8 half-days of training. Please note that the first half-day (Monday morning) and the last (Friday afternoon) are free to allow everyone to travel to the training site.
