AMSI BioInfoSummer 2016
Where: The University of Adelaide
When: 28 November – 2 December 2016
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.
- Bionformatics introduction for Biologists and Mathematicians
- Basics of high dimensional data and multivariate analysis
- Analysing long read (third generation) sequencing data and eukaryotic whole genome sequencing
- RNA seq experimental design and analysis
- Coding for bioinformatics

AMSI BioInfoSummer is funded jointly by the Department of Education and Training and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, with support from The University of Adelaide, ABACBS, EMBL Australia and the BHP Billiton Foundation (part of the CHOOSEMATHS Initiative).
"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"
