Outreach and Training

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.
