Explore Current Research and Developments

In 2020, AMSI BioInfoSummer is going virtual! Hosted by The Australian National University (ANU), attendees will participate online over the four-day program to develop their bioinformatics skills, national networks and employability.

Join with other advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals from the mathematics, statistics, medical sciences and information technology disciplines to explore bioinformatics under the following themes:

  • Single cell / transcriptomics
  • RNA biology
  • Long read sequencing
  • Biomedical optimisation / data science


Running over four days, AMSI BioInfoSummer gives attendees the opportunity to be involved at every level. The program includes presentations and specialist lectures from international speakers and Australia’s top mathematical scientists,  introductory hands-on afternoon workshops, an interactive careers advice session and a range of networking events.
