UPCOMING TRAININGSTrainingStarting Tue 12 Nov 2019 at 09:00 am, Marie-Agnès Dillies will organize Bioinformatics program for PhD students 2019-2020A TARGETED CURRICULUM DEVELOPED BY THE COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY DEPARTMENT In accordance with a request in 2016 from the former General Board of Directors, the Computational Biology Department has developed this training program dedicated to Institut Pasteur PhD students. Each and every student at the institute must attend at least 50 hours of training. At the minimum, he or she is required to validate the statistical modules (which, depending on their background, some students may skip), and possibly choose additional modules according to his or her background and field of research. A CORE FOUNDATION AND THE OPTION TO SPECIALIZE This 50-hour training program required for all Institut Pasteur PhD students begins with a group of common core courses including a knowledge base in reproduc- ible research, R Programming and Statistics. Each student then chooses a track of additional modules— Bioinformatics or Image Analysis—according to their background and field of research. Students already proficient in R programming and statistics can skip certain modules or the entire track. INSTITUTIONAL RECOGNITION This PhD program has been acknowledged by the doctoral schools at the Sorbonne Bio, CDV, Ecole doctorale interdisciplinaire européenne Frontières du Vivant, and ED-SDSV.
