Dates: June 28 - July 16
Time: Morning (10AM - 12PM)
For Careers in: Medicine, Biology, Computer Science
The objective of Computational Biology is to introduce bioinformatics to high school students with an emphasis on searching and retrieving biological data, sorting the data and finally analyzing the sorted data to draw meaningful conclusions. While maintaining the theme of molecular biology, this project-based course will involve hands-on activities on computers/laptops and will teach students how to relate the outcome of each activity to a real-life medical or biological scenario. Students will be introduced to some pre-existing cutting-edge bioinformatics resources and tools, enhacing their enthusiasm towards the subject and opening an avenue for a career in medicine or bioinformatics.
