The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) and the Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics at Mayo Clinic collaborate to offer a series of classroom-based professional development courses on bioinformatics software. These courses are taught by Alexey A. Leontovich, Ph.D., of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., who also oversees bioinformatics consulting in CCaTS.
These courses are intended for researchers who want to learn about the technologies available in the Medical Genome Facility (formerly the Advanced Genomics Technology Center) at Mayo Clinic and receive hands-on training on commercial and public bioinformatics software, public bioinformatics databases and genome browsers.
Effective use of bioinformatics software enables researchers to study — on a genome-wide scale — gene expression, exon composition of transcripts, protein binding sites, genotypes, gene copy number variations, DNA methylation and other molecular events.
CME: Mayo Clinic College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Mayo Clinic College of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
