Bioinformatics for Principal Investigators


The aim of this course is to provide principal investigators with an introduction to the challenges of working with biological data as a research leader; to provide guidance on strategies for managing data and the importance of data sharing; how to encourage bioinformatics development in your team and / or work with collaborators and what resources are available across the life sciences.


This course is aimed at principal investigators and other senior scientists in the molecular life sciences, especially those currently supervising others who are using bioinformatics in their research, or plan to include bioinformatics to their research in the future.

Participants do not require any previous experience of using bioinformatics resources or methods.


After this course you should be able to:

  • Define the potential and pitfalls of bioinformatics use in your research
  • Identify your team needs in terms of bioinformatics use and support
  • Develop appropriate plans for the management and sharing of data
  • Support the development of bioinformatics skills within your team
