Bioinformatics for Genomic Medicine

Learn about the application of Genomics in biomedical research and clinical diagnostics. Online Hands-on training program for STUDENTS & PROFESSIONALS
Sept 14-18, 2020 | 6.30 - 8.00 WAT PM

Bioinformatics for Genomic Medicine

Bioinformatics Genomics Medicine

This special one week program is designed for students and professionals from Africa. In this program, We will also learn to apply analytical methods to publicly available SARS-COV2 genomic data, learning about the virus emergence, spread and disease pathology. As a result, you will have the chance to learn about developing your own analysis methodology  and a research question related to this pandemic.

This upcoming Omicslogic in Africa Genomic Medicine program is a collaborative effort between Pine Biotech Inc, USA, MedLabConvo, Lagos, Nigeria a non-profit organization that is committed to boosting the understanding of Medical Laboratory & Biomedical Data analysis practice in Nigeria and Adekunle O. Adeluwoye, Faculty at Lead City University, Nigeria, & Project Lead for Undergraduate Research and Knowledge Acquisition Traineeship (UREKA Traineeship).

Topics and Schedule

Workshop 1: Next-generation Sequencing - Big Data in Life Sciences (6:30 PM WAT)
Overview: What is Bioinformatics? Data-Driven Discovery and Applications of Bioinformatics in Agriculture, Neuroscience, Cancer Biology, Immunology, Defense, and Healthcare. Session Topics: History of Omics Data and its significance, Overview of the entire course, Overview of the tools and resources for this program ( courses, projects and datasets, and the T-BioInfo Analytics Platform), Expectations and schedule review for the training program, important deadlines, Q&A session. Outcome: Learn about big data in Life Sciences and understand the properties of such datasets. Learn to ask questions such as: What is the big data research project about? What is the research question you are trying to ask? Can this data help in answering the question?
Workshop 2: How can bioinformatics help us diagnose and treat infectious diseases? (6:30 PM WAT)
Overview: Understanding genomic medicine. Session Topics: Precision medicine in Virology, Finding genomic data from epidemic outbreaks and research projects (i.e. genomic sequences and NGS data), Phylogenetics, and Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA), Downstream analysis of genomic data (differential mutations, data mining and association with phenotype). Outcome: Learn about viral genomics and how to obtain NGS data and apply bioinformatics analysis tools to help identify specific viral strains, understand multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic analysis.
Workshop 3: Genomic Medicine in the era of COVID-19 (6:30 PM WAT)
Overview: The current knowledge & application of big data analysis: A COVID-19 (SARS COV-2) case study. The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic has had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the COVID-19 disease itself and efforts to quarantine it. In this session, we will learn about the scientific efforts made so far using the data-driven approaches & learn about COVID-19. Session Topics: Novel coronavirus genes, Proteins and the virology of the disease, how the data and the various analysis tools can help in the detection of viral genomes, compare and distinguish between viral strains, identify the impact of mutations on the functionality of viral proteins, and discuss the virology from the standpoint of data. Outcome: We also know that many of you want to help and contribute towards this cause to study, understand, and help stop the spread of COVID-19. In this session, you will learn about the several ways you can contribute as a citizen scientist and be part of this global initiative by analyzing data generated by labs around the globe.
