OMICSS Guide 2022


This guide was the curriculum of OMICS School 2022 and offers the possibility to gain the fundamental knowledge and skills one would need to start their first Bioinformatics project. In the scope of the guide, you will learn about the role of Bioinformatics in life sciences and industry.

Who Is The Guide For?

This guide is designed for biologists or data/computer scientists eager to start their journey in Bioinformatics and Genomics. However, if you do not match these specifications but would still like to discover the fascinating world of science, we encourage you to challenge yourself and complete the guide, as the lack of knowledge in discipline is not a problem.

What Does The Guide Cover?

The guide covers the basics of Molecular Biology, R Programming, Command-line tools, Statistics, Experimental Techniques in Genetics and Genomics, and Sequencing Data Analysis. You can view the full syllabus here.

How to Make the Most of the Guide

The guide is comprised of 10 sections, each corresponding to one week of training. Feel free to play around and choose the learning path you are most comfortable with.

If you are fluent in a particular module, this guide provides the flexibility to skip to the modules you feel you need more practice in. People with a background in molecular biology, for example, can choose to skip the Molecular Biology modules and focus on the Programming chapters instead, and vice versa.
