Sergey Ivanovich Tikhonov, Assistant Professor of the Department of Chemistry and Technology of Biologically Active Compounds, Medical and Organic Chemistry named after N.A. Preobrazhensky, took part in two events initiated by the Decode life company.
Between January 4 and 18, Sergei Ivanovich had a two-week training course in bioinformatics which included four sections:
Fundamentals of programming in the Linux operating system
- Basic RNA sequence analysis and Pathway enrichment analysis
- Networked bioinformatics
- Molecular docking and modeling
From March 1 to March 12, our colleague also took a two-week course on cancer genomics. The seminars covered such important aspects of research as the basics of the R language, analysis of the DNA sequencing, analysis of changes in the number of somatic copies, and the study of the gene fusion and Pathway enrichment analysis.
Decode life is a group of enthusiastic researchers who strive to decode life sciences. The main goal of the project is to create a self-sustaining system through cross-learning and joining efforts to solve the most important problems of science. Due to the availability of big data, bioinformatics has become an integral part of almost every biomedical laboratory. The challenge today is to educate the next generation of data scientists.
