There are opportunities to leverage what you know, discover a lot more and make a difference.
While learning biotechnology, biochemistry and immunology (among other things) might be your passion, in every one of these domains analysis of experiments and clinical data is of a growing importance. While many prefer to rely on external experts to analyze their data, the understanding of basic principles behind such analysis is critical to be able to extract meaningful and reliable information that is critical for discovery. Research in life sciences is seeing an exponential growth in data volume, complexity and variability, placing bioinformatics, or data science for biological data, central to the learning path of anyone in this field.
What is Omics Logic?
A Growing Community of Students, Experts and Mentors
Our community leverages publicly available data, online tools for big data analysis and a network of mentors to help students learn bioinformatics, apply their skills to meaningful research projects and work with mentors on turning their projects into publications or research posters. The programs we offer provide training, access to high quality tutorials and tools anyone can learn to use independently. The program is offered at university, high school or community college levels as well as directly to citizen scientists around the world.
OMICSLOGIC - LSU BioMMED SUMMER PROGRAMS
OmicsLogic conducts online mentor-guided training programs that are designed for a more in-depth review and preparation for independent research. Each one of the OmicsLogic program is designed with a mix of online workshops, self-directed tutorials and hands-on exercises.
OmicsLogic Transcriptomics - An online training program focused on next-generation sequencing (NGS) Data Analysis in application to gene expression data with project examples from infectious diseases, cancer & neuroscience.
This online program will introduce real-world applications of RNA-seq data analysis in biomedical research and provide participants with hands-on skills and logical background to extract insights from gene expression data.
We will review the methods and history of quantitative and qualitative analysis of mRNA expression. Practical sessions will guide participants to use the methods we review on several project datasets to practice generating a table of expression from raw FASTq files and perform subsequent analysis of this table of gene and isoform expression.
Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases - This program is dedicated to the study of viral diversity and its role in epidemic infectious diseases that keep re-emerging, including zoonotic spillover, transmission between humans, and the process of viral and bacterial disease development.
As a result, you will learn to understand relationships between viral strains and haplotypes, find differences in sequence data, and see the implications for drug and vaccine design. This program will provide opportunities to practice analyzing data to gain hands-on experience with curated datasets from public domain collections, guided by experts with bioinformatics experience and knowledge about virology.
Getting Started with Bioinformatics in R and Python - As biology is saturated with complex datasets that have to be besorted, explored, and“looked into”, anyone handling data generation, analysis, or decision making based on data has to gain some level of “data science” skills.
In most biological and biomedical settings, you will be expected to run or implement programs written by Python, R, and others.
R programming offers a complete range of functionality that you can leverage to perform in-depth statistical analysis, visualization and annotation
The increasing necessity to process big data and develop algorithms in all fields of science means that programming is becoming an essential skill for scientists, with Python the language of choice for the majority of bioinformaticians.
Summer Research Fellowship Program- It has been designed to help young researchers and students take advantage of the bioinformatics resources for analysis of complex life science data and become versed in bioinformatics. Research Fellows participate in cutting-edge bioinformatics research led by expert mentors.
The program will offer a combination of online resources and mentor guidance to prepare you and help you complete a bioinformatics project. Registration fees cover the costs of training, mentorship, and big data T-BioInfo Server.
We offer high-grade training and research tools for hands-on analysis for various research fields which includes analysis of Big Data belonging to Multi-Omics fields (Transcriptomics, Genomics, Epigenomics & Metagenomics), Infectious Diseases, Precision Medicine, Neuroscience, Space-Omics, Metabolic Disorders etc.
