SIB has developed a number of fun ways to discover bioinformatics and the key role it plays in health and society today: workshops, mobile games, classroom activities and even comic strips! A special focus is given to young people and girls in particular, to foster their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Acquire a simple yet realistic picture of how bioinformatics is used to design a drug today. The examples given are candidate drugs for the treatment of cancer and pain. Design your own drug, perhaps even with therapeutic properties that are better than those of existing drugs! Visit the DrugDesign website (EN, FR).
