The Department of Computer Science has offered Master's level education in bioinformatics since 2003, first as a subprogramme, then as part of a Master's Programme MBI, and now again as a subprogramme focusing on algorithmic bioinformatics. The opening event of the new subprogramme discusses the past, the present, and the future of bioinformatics education. The event is targeted especially to students planning to specialize to bioinformatics.

Participants can influence the presentation by sending questions and comments through the voluntary registration.

Preliminary agenda:

  • 14:15 Introduction to the subprogramme (Veli Mäkinen)
  • 14:30 Bioinformatics teachers and researchers introduce themselves
  • 14:45 Discussion: How, where, and how much bioinformatics education should be organized?
