Pine Biotech and Louisiana Biomedical research Network (LBRN) Announces
Registration For Its Summer Bioinformatics Training Program
Pine Biotech and Louisiana Biomedical Research Network (LBRN) announce the registration for its upcoming Louisiana Biomedical Research Network Summer Bioinformatics Training Program which starts June 6- continue through August 15, 2018. This training program will provide students and faculty access to online resources and practical exercises in analyzing high-throughput biomedical datasets.

Are you interested in gaining practical bioinformatics skills to be able to analyze large collection of biomedical datasets?. The upcoming summer program organized by the Louisiana Biomedical Research Network this summer is your chance to acquire such skills in its bioinformatics training program.
Bioinformatics is a blend of molecular biology and data science and deals with the application of computational methods to analyze large collections of biological data, such as genetic sequences, cell populations or protein samples.
For today’s world biologists, scientists, engineers, students and educators bioinformatics provides an opportunity to enhance their understanding of biology using public domain datasets accumulated in such repositories NCBI, TCGA and many others. Louisiana Biomedical Research Network (LBRN) is collaborating with Pine Biotech to prepare online educational modules that provide curated projects and guided tutorials on how to apply algorithms and visualization tools through the user-friendly visual interface platform T-BioInfo ( This platform allows scientists and students from all backgrounds to use computational approaches to explore large biomedical data.
The innovative program will address the major skills gap in processing and analysis of high-throughput biomedical data. This will be achieved by participants applying algorithms to quantify gene expression and detect statistically significant variation from RNA-seq projects in oncology.
The summer program will see the use of a “deep dive” project based approach that reduces time spent on theoretical introductions to quickly introduce the students to the real issues and challenges one faces in a research project. This milestone achievement is possible due to utilization of the popular T-BioInfo platform that provides an intuitive and educational interface for the complex processing and analysis tools.
