The BioSB education programme covers essential topics of the wide-ranging fields of bioinformatics and systems biology. It offers a wide variety of training courses that enable life scientists to apply modelling and computational approaches in addressing scientific challenges.
The programme consists of three types of courses:
- Introductory courses
Courses intended for novices. These courses can either be face-to-face or e-learning courses. The format differs per course. The course length ranges from 1 to 5 days. The frequency varies, but the aim is to have these courses at least once a year.
- Core courses
Courses for PhD students and other researchers in bioinformatics and systems biology. The topics and themes in the core programme form a coherent curriculum. The courses have a format of 5 days, with additional extra work (before and after ) with a total study load of 3 EC. These courses will be offered once per two years.
- Specific courses
Other courses and workshops that do not fit in the above-mentioned categories. These courses may have a different format and be offered occasionally only. Furthermore, they are often co-organized with other organisations.
Below an overview is given of all BioSB courses. For each course, a link is given to the full course information.
In addition, you may find a synopsis of the BioSB Course portfolio in the full Education Programme (pdf), where information is given about all courses, including coordinators, expected date and a short course description.
