Basic Bioinformatics Course


About This Course

Why Learning Bioinformatics is Important for Your Career?

Learning the underlying basic concepts of Bioinformatics and the practical applications of Bioinformatics can be beneficial for you and your research career. Bioinformatics is a very important and crucial field for Life Sciences students and researchers. With Bioinformatics skills at hand, researchers can implement them into their Life Sciences researchers to achieve their research target such as drug discovery, vaccinology, differential gene expression analysis, variant calling and much more. Learning Bioinformatics can enhance your biology career and research by a great margin as compared to other biologists who lack Bioinformatics knowledge and skills. Expertise in the field of Bioinformatics is highly valued and can greatly scale your research skills. Bioinformaticians are in high demand in academia, research, and industry because a very few people have the education and skills to fill the available positions.

How Will this Course Benefit You?

Basic Bioinformatics Course provides in-depth knowledge and introduction to Bioinformatics. The Basic Bioinformatics Course also covers hands-on guide to various biological databases such as NCBI, UCSC Genome Browser, commonly used file formats in Bioinformatics analysis, BLAST database searching. Sequencing alignment and analysis, secondary structure prediction of the proteins along with basic protein analysis and phylogenetics will also be covered in this course. If you lack any prior knowledge of Bioinformatics or have a little knowledge Bioinformatics, then this Basic Bioinformatics Course is a perfect fit for you, as this course requires no prior knowledge of either coding or Bioinformatics!
You will first go through a few lectures on introduction to Bioinformatics, biological databases and various Bioinformatics file formats which will create your foundation for Bioinformatics analysis and by the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of hands-on Bioinformatics skills in various biological databases, sequencing alignment, BLAST database searching, protein analysis and phylogenetics. You don’t require any prior knowledge; you will learn every little topic for getting started with Bioinformatics in this course.

Is it for Beginners?

Yes! This Basic Bioinformatics Course is for absolute beginners who have no prior experience in Bioinformatics or coding. That means, you can get started right away and you will be taught everything you need during the course. Just like the below mentioned learners who had no prior experience in Bioinformatics!


Shehroze Tariq, a student at the University of Pisa, Italy contacted BioCode a few weeks ago to enquire about our courses and how they could benefit him with this research on plant biotechnology-related research on which he was stuck for a quite a while. He had been trying to learn RNA-Seq analysis from YouTube and other free sources but all his efforts were not fruitful as he failed to make any progress in his research, since the topics covered on YouTube were not in-depth and he lacked proper understanding of RNA-Seq data analysis or any of its sub-processes. He wanted to quickly learn RNA-Seq data analysis that could help him complete his research before the deadline and he wanted a course that could cover all the basics of RNA-Seq, all the way to differential gene expression analysis. He enrolled in the BioCode course and was able to learn RNA-Seq Data Analysis and fulfill his research goals.

Few months back, I was looking for some good bioinformatics platform to get a training in advanced level bioinformatics techniques. After thorough search, I came across BioCode 60 Days Internship plan. Without given a second thought, I signed up for that as whatever I wanted to learn was included in that internship plan. I completed that internship plan and I am extremely satisfied with the contents, video lectures and support /guidance which I got from time to time from the staff. I would highly recommend if someone wants to get advanced level bioinformatics training, BioCode is the place to start with. I myself now planning to start another training from this platform soon.
Thanks BioCode team for this fantastic learning.

I started the internship on Functional bioinformatics by BioCode and it was, without a doubt, the best online activity on this subject that I attended so far. As a beginner in this field, I will totally recommend it to anyone with or without prior knowledge of bioinformatics. Besides that, their support team is one of the best.
Mushhood Ur Rehman, from PHFMC

I have been taking BioCode lectures for a few months now and I think it is the best platform to start with understanding the basics to the complexity of Bioinformatics and Computational biology. I highly regard the BioCode team as they are very cooperative and exceptionally helping people and always try to make things easy for you.
Faiza Munir, from Pakistan

BioCode have helped me a lot to be an international researcher.
Thank you for the opportunity, time and dedication at any time for 3 months!
Ergi Hoxha, from Albania, Faculty of Natural Sciences

Thank you for all your help. Your service was excellent and very fast. Many thanks for you kind and efficient service. I have already and will definitely continue to recommend your services to others in the future.
Sajjad Hussain, Harbin Medical University, China

I was surprised and amused by the content and the speaker. They taught from the very basic concept and slowly building an advanced level. Happy to be a part of the BioCode platform.
Muhammad Faizan, Pakistan

I am currently enrolled in one of the workshops of BioCode and I am enjoying this course a lot. Although, I have no knowledge about proteins and bioinformatics I am learning a lot because the way it is explained is very good. On the other hand, I really appreciate the communication I have been having with the staff members. Although this is a virtual communication it is easy to notice that they are very supportive, respectful and collaborative, so that I am very happy of this choice. I am going to follow another course here and I suggest this to anyone interested to learn more and want to gain very good skills in several issues related to bioinformatics.

Is it Project Based?

Yes, the course is project based and hands-on, each topic is taught with a hands-on tutorial. That means the instructor takes a raw data set and performs the entire analysis on it which you can follow step-by-step.

Is Raw Data Included and What Dataset is Used?

Yes, a raw data set is included in the course which you can easily access. The access to the dataset will be provided in the course dashboard.

Is It An In-Depth Theoretical and Practical Course?

Yes, everything is covered in-depth, each lecture topic duration ranges from 5-30 minutes, therefore, we have covered everything that is required for you to understand Bioinformatics from the very basics.

I don’t know anything about Bioinformatics?

That’s not an issue, you will learn the required basic topics of Bioinformatics in this course, as no prior experience is required.

No Prior Knowledge Required in Bioinformatics

Basic Bioinformatics Course makes sure that you learn every little thing about Bioinformatics before you start making progress in the field of Bioinformatics which will then feel as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Guarantee that Matters!
