Summer 2013 Bioinformatics Workshop Roundup Part One

The summer is a great time to learn some new skills and really hone data analysis techniques.  I think it’s best to learn some topics — bioinformatic tools and data analysis scripting in particular — as intense multi-day workshops or a week- or two-week long short courses.  Here’s a few courses that are being held this summer that may be of interest to you.  I’ll be sure to post more as I hear about them.

Programming for Evolutionary Biology, Leipzig, Germany, April 3rd to April 19th, 2013

course one

Informatics for RNA-sequence Analysis, Toronto, Canada, June 3rd to June 4th, 2013

course two

Pathway & Network Analysis of -Omics Data, Toronto, Canada, June 10th to June 12th, 2013
