Unlock biological secrets and interpret big data

Bioinformatics is a constantly evolving interdisciplinary field that develops methods and tools for understanding biological data, particularly large and complex data sets.

The AMSI BioInfoSummer 2022 conference brings together advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, early-career researchers and professionals from mathematics, statistics, data science, biology, biomedicine and computer science to explore bioinformatics under the following themes:

  • High-resolution biology
  • Genome architecture
  • Whole-cell modelling
  • Populations


AMSI BioInfoSummer is returning to an in person conference in 2022! (virtual participation also available). Hosted by Melbourne Integrative Genomics at The University of Melbourne, participants will develop their bioinformatics skills, national networks and employability.

The four-day 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 networking events.
