OmicsLogic Workshop on Computational Biology & Biomedical Data Science

 industry-driven omicslogic training & research 

Advances in sequencing and computational biology have drastically increased our capability to explore biology through this vast amount of data.  Our understanding of the world of biology is changing due to the many breakthroughs in biotechnology, Agriculture, Infectious diseases research, and other life science research. For beginners and students who are starting with their specialization and are enrolled in degree programs in any of the biology & life sciences, it is indeed quite challenging to stay up to speed with the industry and research. Our team and collaborators are working with faculty and students that make this entire process of getting up to the speed of showing your potential and contributing as citizen scientists very easy. This process starts with this workshop designed to introduce students from all backgrounds to the intersection of biology and data science, we call it Omics Logic.
