Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics
10-Week Summer Session Offerings
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics, is pleased to announce the first offering of our Summer Institute, aimed at graduate students and professionals who are seeking an accelerated program in which to acquire the necessary skills to carry out genomic laboratory processes and analyze the resulting data.
The Bioinformatics Summer Institute is a limited enrollment, full-time 10-week program broken into 4 equal sessions. It provides hands-on experience that begins with sample processing, proceeds to creating a library and sequencing it on the Ion Torrent PGM Next Generation Sequencing platform. Students will take the resulting data as well as data from the public domain and learn to use state of the art bioinformatics and statistical methods, and to use workflow systems to combine methods into analysis pipelines. Successful graduates of the program will be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Bioinformatics Applications.
