Collaborators and Partners

Collaborations are essential to Pine Biotech’s success in understanding the challenges our users face and the difference we can make, so we embrace the philosophy that the sum is greater than the parts. As a result, we have developed extensive collaborations with research institutions and industrial companies across the United States, Europe, and India.

We welcome collaborations with other research organizations, industry, and all faculty!

Symposium Partners

Opportunity for Students to Showcase Their Skills and Projects

Best Presentation, Project or Collaborative Research Prizes, Virtual Poster Session, and Feedback from Expert Judges.

One of the challenges for students around the world is exposure and networking with peers and experts in the field. That is why our symposium will encourage project posters to be submitted for expert feedback and discussion to select top projects for prizes in different categories. This is especially relevant for those who are completing the summer research program by the Louisiana Biomedical Research Network (LBRN), Amity University as well as the Research Fellowship Program offered through Omics Logic Training. The submission is also open to all registered participants from high school, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate categories as well as for citizen science projects.

To submit your project follow the steps below:

☑️Decide whether you want to join the poster session or present in a short talk
☑️Submit the form to be selected for prize categories and get an email invitation
☑️Follow directions in the email for submitting the full poster on or before March 15th

Submit your Abstract for Poster Presentation Competition (2022)

Addressing the Pressing Challenges with Data Science Education for all Life Sciences

To address pressing challenges with training all life science students in data skills for the 21st century, we will bring together experts in life science research and education to discuss how hard and soft skills they acquire will benefit their future careers in academia and research.

How Can you Get Noticed in This Community?

Learn about the critical skills needed in academic and Industry Positions. See what others are doing.

What are The Challenges for Universities?

Hear from the leaders in project-driven education that have demonstrable outcomes in learning & placement

Where is Bioinformatics Headed?

Learn about the future of Data Science & Biology: Research & Applications in agriculture, medicine, & biotechnology.

Universities and Companies

There are opportunities to leverage what you know, discover a lot more, and make a difference.

As a student, you might be thinking about how your skills in bioinformatics can make a difference and what can you do to make an impact. That is where finding the right academic programs, knowing what kinds of topics they specialize in, and targeting a profession that will help you make a difference are critical. During the symposium, our speakers will share information about the programs they are associated with and what their focus is on. Companies will tell you about the skills and experience they are looking for.

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.
