Enabling Students and Faculty to Conduct Research in the Age of Big Data
OmicsLogic Training Programs are designed to address the pressing needs of students, faculty and researchers to deal with growing amounts of high throughput data generated in life sciences. With a focus on accessibility, hands-on practice and project-driven design, these modules will help you get started and grow in bioinformatics.
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.
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.
OMICSLOGIC 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 programs is designed with a mix of online workshops, self-directed tutorials and hands-on exercises. You can explore all the upcoming winter programs here - https://learn.omicslogic.com/programs
Introduction to Bioinformatics - this training program is designed for everyone, including students who don't have a background in bioinformatics, as well as life science researchers. The objective is to introduce topics and examples to help participants understand Omics data, and the use of bioinformatics in life science research. As a result of this training, you will learn about Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis.
This includes processing and preparing data for analysis in application to Genomics, Transcriptomics, and Metagenomics. You will also get an overview of downstream analysis and interpretation of various types of -omics data using bioinformatics, including commonly used annotation databases, statistical analysis and machine learning techniques.
An online program on next-generation sequencing (NGS) Data Analysis in application to gene expression data with project examples from infectious diseases, cancer & neuroscience hosted by Pine Biotech.
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.
It has been well established that discovering and developing drugs is an extensive and expensive process. However, since 2020, there has been a phenomenal demand to increase the use of bioinformatics, cheminformatics, and the use of ML and artificial intelligence for vaccine and drug development. With the rapidly growing amount of complex healthcare and biological data and the increasing complexities of analysis, everyday cutting-edge innovations are bringing new things to learn, it is quite challenging for beginners to start their research journey.
This research training is developed in collaboration with the Omics Logic Industry expert panel (FABA, Pine Biotech & Industry partners) to help students, researchers, and scientists utilize structure biology and apply cheminformatics for drug discovery.
The Research Fellowship program 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 fellowship 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.
The platform is a cloud-based analytical server used by research labs and independent scientists around the world.
After completing a specialized training program, students/researchers can enroll themselves in the OmicsLogic Research Fellowship Program and work on an independent research project.
