Bioinformatics of Genes, Proteins and Metabolites Workshop

Bioinformatics of Genes, Proteins and Metabolites Workshop

Proper bioinformatics analysis of both research and clinical data plays an essential role in the medical field, and independent bioinformatics analysis serves to protect both investigators and future patients. Bioinformatics techniques are applicable to many of the studies being conducted on the UTHealth campus including studies investigating genetics, metabonomics, proteomics, kinomics and many other methods. The UTHealth Bioinformatics Service Center was created to assist the UTHealth community with the analysis of such research results, and this collaborative workshop will focus on some the techniques currently being used to analyze ongoing health research on the UTHealth campus.
