In order to federate skills in integrative bioinformatics within the community, the IFB proposes a new thematic school with a double objective:
- enhancement of bioinformaticians theoretical and practical skills
- 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
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.
The training aims at:
- introducing the basic concepts and the different types of approaches used in integrative bioinformatics
- proposing a deepening and a practical implementation of one of these approaches on one or several datasets integrating different types of omics data
- creating, improving and sharing 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
- implemented an integrative analysis from data preparation to critical analysis of the results on (a) proposed dataset(s)
- contributed to the development of shared educational material on the subject.
- Basic knowledge of Unix/shell, R, Python
- Autonomy in workstation management (installation of libraries and use of packaging environments like conda)
