The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures and hands-on training covering topics relevant to the field of bioinformatics. Each tutorial will offer participants an opportunity to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, to get an introduction to important established topics, or to develop advanced skills in areas they are already familiar with.

The tutorials are planned on September 3 and 4, 2016 in the World Forum in The Hague, immediately preceding the ECCB 2016.
