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.

Introduction to Genome Annotation- COURSE CANCELLED!

The focus of this NBIS course will be on non-model eukaryote organisms, and in particular the structural annotation of protein coding genes. We will use de novo gene finders, protein alignments and RNA-seq data to infer the structure of genes, and show how to combine these different lines of evidence to get the most stable and informative annotation. COURSE CANCELLED

Quick and clean: advanced Python for data science in biology

The course is built around Python philosophy of being quick and clean (the so called Zen of Python) and thus assumes anything taking more than three days to learn is probably not worth the effort. For convenience it is structured based on the industry way of classifying big data jobs: data analytics, data science, data engineering. Application deadline: May 14.

Biophysical methods in drug discovery

The course will focus on different biophysical methods used for characterising protein-ligand interactions in drug discovery projects. It will cover a range of biophysical methods used to characterize interactions between drug target proteins and potential inhibitory compounds, and how to use the information for lead generation. The methods include, but are not limited to those offered at the three SciLifeLab facilities. The course consists of lectures with active discussion from the participants, computer exercises, and demonstrations in the form of laboratory experiments. Application deadline: May 26.
