BioInfoSummer is a major annual bioinformatics educational and outreach event in Australia, bringing together in excess of 150 biologists, statisticians and bioinformatics professionals.
Bioinformatics creates biological information and knowledge by the acquisition, archiving, integration, analysis and interpretation of biological data. Biotechnology, drug development, medicine, cancer research, agriculture and plant science are just a few of the many areas in which bioinformatics is having a massive impact.
The program covers state-of-the-art technologies used in medical and biological research and also teaches fundamentals of data analysis. Many prominent researchers, both national and international will give lectures in the program.
The annual AMSI vacation schools and scholarships are funded jointly be the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute. EMBL Australia and Bioplatforms Australia are major sponsors of BioInfoSummer.
This year subsidised internship placements will be linked to BioInfoSummer, internships connect business and other organisations to the vast research expertise in Australia’s universities.
Participants will be invited to the 2013 BioInfoSummer symposium to showcase the research.
