Bioscience Lite - Bioinformatics and Big Data

Bioscience Lite - Bioinformatics and Big Data

What is Bioinformatics and how can you bring it into the classroom? Find out about the latest advances in the applications of big data. This session includes a presentation by EMBL-EBI's Jane Loveland on how Bioinformaticians work with big data when annotating genomes and its use in the Ensembl genome browser. There will also be a hands on activity learning how to mine ensembl for genomic data and an opportunity to visit the Wellcome Genome Campus data centre.

Bioscience LITE is a series of free twilight teacher training events hosted by the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Babraham Institute to explore some of the big topics in bioscience. These sessions will provide you with updates from scientists on contemporary bioscience, access to some of our scientific facilities and introduce you to resources that can be used in the classroom.

The themes for the remaining sessions in 2019 are still being finalised and booking will be via EventBrite, but please make a note of these dates in your calendar:

Wednesday 15th May at the Wellcome Genome Campus
Wednesday 3rd July at the Babraham Institute
