Focus on the group's mission

The SIB Training group coordinates the institute’s bioinformatics training and course offer. Throughout its activities, it ensures that the next generation of bioinformaticians and life scientists make the best of the latest advances in computational biology.

Addressing training needs

From in-person and streamed classes to openly accessible recordings and e-learning modules, a range of regularly updated content and topics are provided. They are designed to closely match the bioinformatics training needs of all life science actors, from the academia or the private sector, including PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and health professionals. Discover all upcoming courses and stay informed, and if you need training in an area of bioinformatics that we are not currently covering, please let us know.

International collaborations

The Training group collaborates in pan-European and international training projects, together with the broader bioinformatics community of ELIXIR, GOBLET and ISCB. For instance, the Training group is co-leading the following projects:

Our trainers

SIB Training relies on the knowledge possessed by SIB Members, as well as national and international experts to deliver world-class courses.

Training Advisory Committee

In the Training Committee, the strategic outlook and the concept of training activities are discussed and decided upon. It is composed of the SIB Group Leaders most involved in training activities, namely:
