Computational Biology @ Comenius University in Bratislava: LSB2011 - Home

Summer School on Bioinformatics
July 11-15, 2011, Bratislava, Slovakia


Download flyer

The summer school will provide an overview of several areas of computational biology, covering concrete tools, examples of their use, and underlying models and methods. Intended audience includes biologists who want to become more experienced bioinformatics users as well as computer scientists, mathematicians and others who are interested in this exciting research area. The summer school is primarily targeted at doctoral students and postdocs, although more experienced researchers or Master students are welcome to attend as well. The program will include lectures, practical workshops, and research seminars given by experienced researchers from several countries. Working language is English.

Topics covered

Genome sequencing, sequence alignment, gene finding and genome annotation, phylogenetic analysis, comparative genomics, gene expression and microarray analysis, protein structure, RNA structure, populations genetics, statistics in R, algorithms and probabilistic models in bioinformatics


Dates and fees

  • Early registration: April 20-May 31
  • Late registration: June 1-June 30

Early registration fee is 35EUR, late registration 50EUR. The fee includes course materials, coffee breaks and a half-day excursion. Organizers do not arrange accommodation, however we recommend using Druzba hostel/hotel with reasonable prices and a great location close to the summer school site.

In order to qualify for the early reduced fee, you have to register and pay before May 31 by a bank transfer. Late registration fees can be paid by a bank transfer or in cash on the site. You will receive an e-mail with payment details after registering for the event.

Registration details

Registration is now closed.

During registration, please indicate which practical workshops you would like to attend. Several workshops will run in parallel every afternoon. Some workshops span several days, others only have one session. You can take part in several non-overlapping workshops. If you select overlapping workshops in your preferences, we will reserve a space for you in non-overlapping workshops based on your preferences and space limitations.

Available workshops (the program is subject to change):

  • Microarray analysis (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday)
  • RNA (Tuesday, Friday)
  • Genome browser and Biomart (Monday)
  • 3D structures in Pymol (Tuesday)
  • Phylogenetic analysis (Thursday)
  • Introduction to statistical package R for bioinformatics (Friday)
  • Algorithms and models in bioinformatics for computer scientists and mathematicians (Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri)

All workshops except the last one will be in computer labs.
