Training Workshops in Bioinformatics and Omics

The Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) is an internationally known research center located at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. IGS offers five different workshops as part of a professional development program organized by Dr. Michelle Giglio, a faculty member at IGS with over 17 years of experience in genomics and bioinformatics. Dr. Giglio has recruited IGS faculty and staff to form a highly experienced instruction team to provide workshop participants with the knowledge and skills needed to engage in numerous omics applications. All IGS workshops are hands-on, providing attendees with real-world challenges and experience.
