AMSI BioInfoSummer 2017, hosted by Monash University, is a key training event in Australia, bringing together people from all disciplines to share current research and developments in BioInformatics.


Bioinformatics is an exciting discipline analysing and simulating both the structures and processes of biological systems. Biological experiments can generate large amounts of data. Bioinformatics is about acquiring, managing, analysing and understanding that data. It is a truly interdisciplinary field that uses mathematics, statistics, and information technology to analyse large and complex biological datasets.

Students, researchers, and professionals are invited to register their interest for this event—to experience the exploration of research and information in the below areas:

  • Data Visualisation
  • RNA-seq theory and practice
  • Proteomics & metabolomics data
  • Clinical bioinformatics & variant calling for disease
  • Single-cell genomics

Attendees will also have the chance to network and engage with a panel of academics and professionals on bioinformatics careers.
