Biology has entered a new era marked by the generation of sequence data from tens of thousands of species. A vast amount of information about how life works and evolves is encoded in these data.

A trove of important discoveries are just waiting to be made, possibly by you and your future colleagues. In order to find these treasures, you must learn skills that are different from those used in a “wet lab”, where you transfer liquids from tube to tube. These “dry lab” skills include sequence analysis, computational methods and statistics among others. The goal of this lab is to expose you to some of these fundamental skills required for bioinformatic work, all of which are highly valued in today’s research environment.
