The Bioinformatics Unit aims to promote the use of computational methods in biological research, through training and development of resources and materials.
- We support the graduate programmes of the Laboratório Associado de Oeiras, namely by organizing short courses on Bioinformatic Topics.
- We have a long-term project to promote Bioinformatics @ Schools.
- We organize regular events, such as the Python Club to stimulate the learning of programming for bioinformatics.
- We also ocasionally organize events, such as an NGS workshop in April 2012, to promote the local interchange of ideas regarding a specific bioinformatics topic.
