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

The educational activities cover knowledge and understanding about the advanced techniques and data analysis methods available at the SciLifeLab technical platforms. In general, they are aimed for researches who have not previously been aware of – or lacked access to – the technologies SciLifeLab provides. 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 other educational activities and more focused on a single subject. Please note that The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students.
