Essential Bioinformatics for Global LeadersⅠ 2018年10月3日開講 


10月3日より、Essential Bioinformatics for Global LeadersⅠを開講いたします。この科目はグローバル理工学副専攻の履修科目になっていますが、博士前期・後期課程に所属し、関心のある学生であれば、どなたでも履修することができます。なお、講義は英語で行われます。


Prof. GouraudBioinformatics is an interdisciplinary research area at the interface between biological science and computational science, the ultimate goal of which is to better understand living cells and their functioning at the molecular level. It involves the technologies that use computers for the storage, retrieval, manipulation, understanding and distribution of information related to biological macromolecules such as DNA, RNA, protein, and even more. The “Essential Bioinformatics for Global Leaders I” classes has been conceived for non-biologist as well as biologist students wishing to acquire global leader skills and enrich their scientific English. This first series of interactive classes, given in friendly English, will provide the students with the fundamental cellular and molecular biology knowledge needed to understand bioinformatics. Important notions of bioinformatics, its logical background and its cutting-edge applications in basic biology research, biotechnology and biomedical sciences will also be introduced. The classes include lectures, discussion and practices [wet lab (basic molecular biology experiments) and dry lab (databases exploration, data analysis using software)]. The students do not need to understand the mathematical details in the field.


These interactive classes are open to everyone, from biological background or not. They will provide you with the basis for a general understanding of cell and molecular biology. If you are new to Biological Sciences, you will have a chance to do your first biological experiments. If you already know about the field, it will be a great opportunity for you to improve your skills, widen your knowledge and in any cases listen and practice your English! Do not hesitate to join that fun experience!
