Course at EMBL-EBI

Bioinformatics for principal investigators

This course has been designed to provide principal investigators (PI's) working in the life sciences with an introduction to the challenges of working with biological data as a research leader.

Starting with a look at where bioinformatics and data science fits into their research teams, the course will enable PI’s to take a strategic look at the requirements for undertaking such work and how bioinformatics capacity can be developed from personnel through to computational needs.

It will additionally provide guidance on strategies for managing data, the importance of data sharing; how to work with computational collaborators and what resources are available across the life sciences to support such work. During this course, we will not be teaching hands-on bioinformatics analysis, but we will be signposting appropriate training resources to upskill you and your team.

This course is organised in parallel with Managing a Bioinformatics Core Facility to maximise opportunities for networking.
