Bioinformatics is an exciting discipline analysing and simulating both the structures and processes of biological systems. BioInfoSummer introduces bioinformatics and mathematical and computational biology to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals working in the fields of mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, complex systems analysis, and biological, chemical and medical sciences and engineering.
AMSI BioInfoSummer is funded jointly by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, with support from The University of Adelaide, ABACBS, BHP Billiton Foundation (supporting the Choose Maths Initiative), EMBL Australia, Flinders University, University of South Australia and Illumnia.
"The hands-on workshops were excellent."
"I liked the mix of presentations and workshops, it kept me actively learning throughout the week. The material covered in the workshops was very useful and the speakers were chosen well. "
"The Mathematical Biology talks were fascinating"
"BioInfoSummer really broadened my knowledge about the applications of R and the emphasis of 'omics in this event and was truly an eye opener to where the progress of biological sciences is heading towards"
