Our major academic partner is the Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center at the University of Haifa in Israel. Scientists from this center are providing academic oversight and guidance in curriculum preparation and the development of the current bioinformatics analysis platform (T-BioInfo) that allows non- bioinformaticians to run complex algorithms on large-scale datasets. Other collaborating institutions help adapt our materials to important research areas and improve student engagement. This unique academic-industrial partnership allow both the organisations to bring state-of-the-art technology and content developed by experts in bioinformatics to students, faculty, and researchers that want to learn about and perform high-quality bioinformatics experiments.
