Bioinformatics for the terrified

This course will give you a broad overview of how bioinformatics can enable bench-based research. It is aimed at experimental researchers in the molecular life sciences who have little or no previous experience of using bioinformatics databases or tools.

An undergraduate degree in a subject related to the molecular life sciences would be an advantage.
