Are you a High-School Student and Interested in learning Computational Biology or Big Data Analysis, Genomics, Data Science & Machine Learning Techniques, or R and Python coding for biomedical research? If yes, then learn more below!
Many middle and high school students are interested in high-level research. Their interest in life sciences, robotics, coding, and other STEM disciplines coincides with the need to prepare a workforce that is ready for these careers and emerging challenges. Limiting factors for the integration of bioinformatics courses at the high school level include the lack of qualified trainers, complicated analysis tools, cost of infrastructure, and standard pre-requirements of code literacy and statistics. Moreover, bioinformatics leverages large datasets and requires computational expertise that can translate to a successful data science career in many other industries. These programs are recommended for anyone interested, including beginners that do not have a background in bioinformatics. If you are a young innovator and want to learn from the best resources and expert team then you can join the upcoming summer training programs offered by Pine Biotech, Partners, and collaborators.

Key Topics Covered:
Many types of omics data require step-by-step preparation, exploration, annotation, and visualization to understand. The T-BioInfo platform was designed for big multi-omics data analysis hiding the complexities of data with a user-friendly and intuitive interface that eliminates the need for coding and advanced machine learning algorithms for data integration and mining.
A program that embeds data-driven concepts into biological projects, spanning the student learning journey from observer to participant in research. Project-based learning for big data bioinformatics is to go beyond the theory with real datasets, projects, and expert mentors. Work with curated datasets from publicly available repositories with easy-to-follow tutorials.
Data processing for Next Generation Sequencing, Mass-Spectroscopy, Structural and phenotypic data. Build and adapt pipelines using similar approaches to data mapping, quantification, and annotation that are used to prepare data for downstream statistical analysis, train machine learning models and annotate features.
Introduction to R and Python Online bioinformatics coding exercises to learn and explore R and Python scripting and understand how to analyze and visualize -omics data to extract meaningful insights from large biological datasets. Learn, practice, and achieve bioinformatics greatness with concise exercises and interesting challenges.

Upon the completion of the training program, the participants of the training will be eligible for Certificates & Recognition based on their evaluation by experts. certification of completion will be awarded all the participants who successfully complete the program,Certificate of Excellence: To top 10 participants, Project Certification to outstanding performers: Top 3 Participants
LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS!
Bioinformatics skills are embedded in life sciences and in demand, well-paying careers. This discipline combines data science, statistics, and molecular biology which are often taught as separate topics. As a result, bioinformatics and biomedical data sciences are rarely available for high school students (outside of major biotech hubs) due to the lack of teacher competency, complex bioinformatics tools, big datasets, and the lack of practical exposure. Prof. Sona Vasudevan from Georgetown University, USA explains how we live in a world of data and how information technologies and data science can help extract information from biological data - which is bioinformatics.
Dr. Sona Vasudevan
She also serves as an adjunct senior bioinformatics scientist for Protein Information Resource (PIR) and directs the dual-degree program (MD/MS) in systems medicine, a program she created. Her expertise is in structural biology, structural bioinformatics, homology modeling, protein-ligand interactions, antibody-antigen interactions, drug discovery, and systems medicine.
Dr. Mohit Mazumder
Dr. Mohit Mazumder has over 12 years of research & industry experience. He completed a Masters's in Bioinformatics from Jamia Millia Islamia and a Ph.D. in computational biology & chemistry from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). He is an expert in machine learning in application to biomedical & chemical data with over 40 publications in bioinformatics and numerous award for his scientific research and developing training structures for beginners in bioinformatics and data science.
Dr. R.L. Narayanan
Dr. Raghavendran Lakshminarayanan is an accomplished computational biologist with more than 4 years of research experience in subjects/areas like multi-omics data analysis and data science methods in precision oncology, and protein/DNA structural bioinformatics. With a strong background in Biophysics and Bioinformatics, he earned his Ph.D. in computational biology from the Max-Planck Institute, Germany.
Independent Research Projects
The Bioinformatics fellowship is a structured program that guides students through various areas of Big Data Bioinformatics Research using practical examples. During this program, we go through several high-quality research publications and learn about applications of computational biology in projects these publications describe. This kind of experience allows beginners to try computational biology techniques on public domain data, making it possible to work with large files and extract meaningful information from patient samples, animal models, cell-lines, and microbiota. The program provides support and mentorship, therefore it is an intensive research program involving training tasks, access to our online sessions and a guide on the implementation of learned skills to proposed research ideas.
The research fellowship program is designed to provide support and guidance on the development of an independent research project within a given timeframe (3-6 months). During this time, participants meet on a weekly basis to share their progress and get feedback from the program coordinators. They can also request one-on-one sessions with a mentor on a weekly basis or meet in smaller focus groups.

FEEDBACK FROM THE SUMMER HIGH SCHOOL 2021 PROGRAMS
New Rochelle High School
The complete program topics were really interesting. I was able to learn a lot of new things. I was personally not able to give in so much time during and after the sessions for practice and learning. At some points, I felt the flow of the teaching was apt for me to be able to grasp it, especially during hands-on sessions. I look forward to learning more from the resources."
Andrés Muedano Sosa
High School Student at Colegio Suizo de México
I wanted to share with you that my project won first place nationwide at the Mexican Science Cup and that I have been selected to represent Mexico at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair. I'm beyond excited.”
New Rochelle School
"This program was a great review and exploration into different omics technologies and the field of bioinformatics. I came in only taking a basic Biology course in high school, so while these concepts were all very new to me, I think it was presented well. I liked how everyone was very open to answering all our questions. I liked the hands-on part of the session where we did some work on pymol as well." - Kieran
High School Student
OmicsLogic Bioinformatics & Data Science Research Program has been really helpful in building my basic understanding of these fields. The mentors were really helpful throughout the program and the team was always there to assist with the resources. I would really recommend this program to all the high school students interested to get into research
