August 17-25th, Perdana University, Serdang
In this seven-day workshop, we cover essential bioinformatics topics, such as biological databases and bioinformatics tools, sequence comparison including BLAST, biological pattern / profile search, molecular phylogeny and 3D stucture visualisation and homology modelling, with hands-on practicals on the theories and concepts covered. This will empower the participants with the foundation necessary to manage and mine the wealth of available biological data to address complex research problems.
