BioSB is the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology community in The Netherlands. We are committed to train the next generation of computational life scientists. Our challenging and inspiring education programme covers essential topics in bioinformatics and systems biology, taught by expert teams.
A typical BioSB course runs for five consecutive days and includes lectures and hands-on computer exercises. Courses are organized at different locations throughout The Netherlands and offer great ways of networking and gaining essential contacts with other researchers in the field. The YoungCB network regularly organises a BioCafé during the course week.
Information about registration can be found on the general enrollment page.

Fundamental courses, taught by a range of experts in the Dutch bioinformatics & systems biology community, are organised once per year. In 5 days, they provide a solid foundation in core technologies in bioinformatics and systems biology, laced with examples of applications. The advanced courses (below) build on this foundation. Pre-registration for the courses is possible via this form.

The advanced programme consists of a set of 5-day bioinformatics and systems biology courses that are offered once every 2 years. Each course deals with a specific topic in current bioinformatics and systems biology. Each course is organized by experts and exposes students to both fundamental approaches and recent developments. Most build on methods introduced in the fundamental courses, though depending on prior education it may not be needed to follow these first. Pre-registration for the courses is possible via this form.
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.
