SCHOOL OF BIOINFORMATICS 2020

школа био 2Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Center for Life Sciences, NLA, Nazarbayev University will  organize School of Bioinformatics  as part of International conference dedicated to the 10th anniversary of Center for Life Sciences "Modern Perspectives for Biomedical Sciences: from Bench to Bedside"  (May 14-15, 2020). The  potential participants (20 person max) of the School of Bioinformatics will be selected on a competitive basis. Participation in the School of Bioinformatics is free.  We ask you to prepare your CV,  a list of publications, a motivation letter and a hypothesis mini-project in plain text form and send it to e-mail: bsb@nu.edu.kz and ulykbek.kairov@nu.edu.kz with #BioinformaticsSchool note.
