The CIBR Center is proud to be actively involved in the on-going education and sharing of knowledge throughout Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Medical Center community. Many of the CIBR Center's events are open to the entire TMC community in the interest of continued education and collaborations in the field of computational and integrated biomedical research. The CIBR Center accomplishes this through seminars, data clinics, workshops and more. Please see the links below for further detail.

Education

Coursework

There are a wide variety of computational related courses offered by Baylor College of Medicine and throughout the Gulf Coast Consortia. These courses include training in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Advanced Simulations, Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

For more information on the computational courses offered we encourage you to visit each of the partnering academic sites of the GCC, in addition to the Quantitative and Computational Biosciences Graduate Program here at Baylor. Each year, as part of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences core curriculum, the CIBR Center faculty offers an Applications to Biology of Computation course. The course offers a broad survey of different topics from a computational perspective and their applications in revealing biological insights, such as; genomics, epigenomics, population genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, structure-function, systems biology, networks, phylogenomics and pattern discovery.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the variety high throughput biological data.
  • To learn the basic types of methods with which these data are managed and analyzed.
  • To discuss and critically assess our ability to retrieve biological information from them.
