About This Course
Why Learning Bioinformatics is Important for Your Career in Life Sciences?
Learning the underlying concepts of Bioinformatics and the practical applications of Bioinformatics can be beneficial for you and your research career. Bioinformatics is an exciting and in-demand skill set required by the ever changing Life Sciences (Health and Medical Sciences) fields, with Bioinformatic skills you can find genomic instabilities of the patients, find over-expressed biomarkers in patients of certain disease, identify single-nucleotide polymorphisms that can provide changes to the organisms’ phenotypes, develop new software and algorithms for other researchers to do cutting edge research.
Bioinformatics is easy to get started with, all you have to do is gain the required theoretical and practical understanding of Bioinformatics and how it is applied to the data generated during the research projects related to molecular biology, genetics, genomics, microbiology and biotechnology. Therefore, you can take any biological data from any public repository (you will learn that in this course) and predict the answers to your research questions.

Yes! This Theory of Bioinformatics course is for beginners who have no prior experience in Bioinformatics or programming. 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 RNA-Seq analysis!
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 training in advanced level bioinformatics techniques. After thorough search, I came across BioCode 60 Days Internship plan. Without giving 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 that if someone wants to get advanced level bioinformatics training, BioCode is the place to start with. I myself am now planning to start another training from this platform soon.
Thanks to the 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

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 built 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 I am very happy with 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.
