General information about NORBIS courses

NORBIS organises in-depth methodological courses within bioinformatics, biostatistics and system biology. Three categories of courses are within the scope of the school:

  • Core courses: covering methodology within one discipline at in-depth level (i.e. each course being within either bioinformatics, biostatistics, machine learning or systems biology and covering sets of methods and approaches central to molecular biological enquires)
  • Combined courses: integrating methods from multiple disciplines (e.g. prediction in molecular biology or dimension reduction)
  • Interface courses: covering methods for one particular application domain (e.g. gene regulation or metagenomics).
