Fall 2021 Biotech Symposium: Bioinformatics at UMBC-Shady Grove

September 20, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

There is a high demand in industry for workers with formal training in bioinformatics and bioinformatics-related roles in the biotechnology and healthcare industries. Students entering the job market for these types of informatics-intensive roles are required to have specialized training in a range of related subject areas. In order to fulfill this demand, the TLST program developed the “Bioinformatics Track” for students in the TLST program, including courses in Bioinformatics, Python programming and capstone courses in either Machine Learning or Deep Learning for Image Analysis. The future is bright, and individuals with this very portable skill set are in high demand. Presented by Jeff Robinson, Bioinformatics and Biostatistics faculty.
