Bioinformatics Core


Mississippi INBRE supports a state-wide bioinformatics core, a collaboration involving University of Mississippi Medical Center and University of Southern Mississippi. We offer a workshop as part of the Bioinformatics Core. Presented by the Bioinformatics Coordinator, Dr. Lavanya Challagundla, this two-part workshop provides hands-on training to students in computer labs at predominantly undergraduate institutions (PUIs). Content includes an introduction to basic bioinformatics tools, career advice specific to the bioinformatic field, and an overview of the types of biomedical research that utilize specific bioinformatics tools. In addition, faculty may customize content based on their students’ needs. These workshops are scheduled during regular class time, making it more convenient for PUI faculty.
