Courses


SciLifeLab offer educational courses and workshops for SciLifeLab infrastructure users and potential users, such as PhD students, postdocs, investigators and other employees within all Swedish universities.

The courses and workshops cover knowledge and understanding about the advanced techniques and data analysis methods available at the SciLifeLab technical platforms. In general the courses are aimed for researches who have not previously been aware of – or lacked access to – the technologies SciLifeLab provides. Via the courses and workshop you can learn how to benefit from SciLifeLab’s scientific resources, how to plan your projects and how to analyze your data. The workshops are usually shorter than the courses and more focused on a single subject. Please note that The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students.

The Swedish Bioinformatics Advisory Program for PhD students is currently open for application. Apply here latest December 12.
