Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops (CBW)

With current high-throughput technologies and scientific approaches to research, having the computational biology capacity and skill set to deal with one’s data has become an even greater research asset.

The CBW hosts a series of advanced topic workshops that focus on training graduate students, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, and researchers in the most recent informatics tools and workflows.

Alumni Testimonials

“I would like to register my admiration for the wonderful organization of this event. In all respects, everything was well organized. The course was full of informative information for us. All lectures were on a high level and full of updated knowledge and technologies. I benefited greatly from the CBW program. I highly recommended this workshop for anyone looking for a high dose of bioinformatics enrichments in a short period!”

—Mohsen Alhejaily, B.Sc. M.Sc. PhD.c., Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Cancer Research Institute

“This was an impressive course with several very skilled instructors, allowing even me with minimal background on the subject to keep up and learn quite a lot about several facets of bioinformatics approaches. Furthermore, the course material covered is very hard to find in one place anywhere else. The skills picked up here will definitely come in handy in my research work with microarray analysis and RNA-Seq data in the future.”

—Dr. Jobin K. Varughese, MD PhD, University of Bergen, Norway

“I wanted to thank you again for all of the work you put into organizing the Bioinformatics for Cancer Genomics workshop back in September. I've succeeded in arranging an internship at The Center for Applied Genomics -- I just started there this week! My attendance at the workshop was invaluable in my getting this arrangement.”

—Robert Ziman, Bioinformatics Programmer, The Center for Applied Genomics
