About bioinformatics.ca

The Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops offered through bioinformatics.ca focuses on training students at the post-graduate level on advanced technologies on the latest approaches being used in computational biology to deal with the new data of all types. The CBW has been developing and offering these new series of workshops since 1999 and has trained more than 4,000 students. In partnership with the Canadian Genetics Diseases Network and Human Resources Development Canada, and under the scientific direction of Director, Francis Ouellette, the CBW series was established. This initial series continued on for eight years. In the fall of 2007, bioinformatics.ca moved to the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research and the CBW initiated development of a new format and series of exciting workshops. In the summer 2019, bioinformatics.ca moved again to its new host the McGill University. It was recognized that with the introduction of new technologies and scientific approaches to research, having the computational biology capacity and skill to deal with this new data has become an even greater asset. This new series of [workshops](/workshops/) focuses on training the researchers of these advanced technologies on the latest approaches being used in computational biology to deal with the new data. In 2020 our online version of workshops is targeting 200 students in our live stream, and more than 2,000 (past average per year) once our class material is on-line for free on YouTube, GitHub and our popular bioinformatics.ca. Be sure to visit all of the resources bioinformatics.ca hosts on this web site: the Canadian [Bioinformatics people list](/resources/bioinformatics-experts/) and the [Bioinformatics Jobs Board](/job-postings/).

Bioinformatics.ca is offering it 2020 season as an On-line only series of workshops More info.
