Precision Oncology

Online Bioinformatics Training Program
March 15, 2021 - April 16, 2021
Online

Precision-Oncology-square

Precision medicine is changing the way we understand, diagnose and treat cancer. The transformation is driven by high-throughput molecular data from patients, animal models, and large-scale cell line experiments. In this online training program, we will explore how the various -omics data types from these sources can be analyzed to understand the basic biology associated with cancer onset, development, and outcomes. We will also learn from examples that demonstrate how large-scale clinical trials and biomedical studies provide an opportunity to improve diagnosis of patients and precision treatment of cancer.

Bioinformatics for Precision Oncology is a hands-on training program designed for clinicians, biologists and students that are  interested in gaining applied experience with data coming from oncology biomedical research. Together, we will learn to find, analyze and interpret large datasets from The Cancer Genome Atlas and the National Center for Biotechnology.

This course was great for me as I was hoping to refresh my basics of bioinformatics and learn new concepts in-depth. In addition, lectures and hands-on training were very interesting and informative. The structure of the class allowed excellent back-and-forth among the students and Elia. Sahil did a great job managing the course. Pine Biotech's platform is very comprehensive and intuitive. This course is a good starting point for someone trying to understand the field of bioinformatics or refresh their knowledge.
