Education and Training

We are keen on fostering a deep understanding of bioinformatics and statistical analysis. Therefore we are involved in arranging courses, workshops, and hands-on sessions.


One-hour training sessions where we show you how to perform a specific analysis or method. We provide four hands-on sessions per year at 11:00.

This year we offer the sessions described below. Registration opens 3 weeks before each hands-on (link to the right).

Registration will open soon

"Visualization of longitudinal data"



PhD Courses in Bioinformatics

We offer the following PhD courses free of charge for national and international PhD students. 

Spring courses 2024

Autumn courses 2024

Autumn courses 2025

Not a PhD student?

We offer the same content of the courses as a workshop for non-PhD students. The workshop runs simultaneously with the PhD course and has a registration fee of 2000 SEK. We can give any workshop at any other time if there are at least 10 participants.

To register submit a training request via our iLab page (Instructions under "Workshop registration" to the right). 

Master Course in Bioinformatics

Next Generation Sequencing Analysis with clinical applications, 7,5 credits (ECTS) -  BMA231


The course includes a combination of lectures and practical sessions where participants will focus on the analysis and interpretation of clinicalNext Generation Sequencing” (NGS) data applying various bioinformatics webtools. The statistical tool R will be introduced to perform and visualize the results. The course covers essential concepts in molecular biology and genetics as well as the principles on “Next Generation Sequencing”-applications, with a focus on targeted resequencing and RNA-sequencing. Students will perform in depth analysis ofNext Generation Sequencing”-quality assessment and interpretation of mutation and gene expression analyses.

In collaboration with the Institute of Biomedicine.
