The British Society for Immunology is excited to offer a new training programme designed to equip wet-lab life scientists with the skills and confidence to perform their own bioinformatic data analysis. The programme has been developed and is delivered by the Glasgow Bioinformatic Core and is being offered by the British Society for Immunology.
The first course ‘Omic data analysis and visualisation using R’ is essential for complete beginners, covering the foundations of bioinformatics, R-coding and omic data visualisation. Please see confirmed dates coming up below.

*These courses are aimed at those who have carried out the entry-level course ‘Omic data analysis and visualisation using R’ or have a comparable level of experience.
The course has had over 600 attendees since 2020, with a mean rating of 9.4/10 for content and delivery, and 93% of participants thinking the session length and pace was “about right”, after 258 reviews.
“Great course! Never thought that something so complex like R could be explained is such clear and simple manner.”
“The content of the course was great and was clearly relevant to biological data analysis from start to finish. I really appreciate that each line of code and each function within the code was explained, as this has left me able to write and customise my code and plots in hundreds of ways.”
“Really enjoyed this outstanding course – allowed a complete novice (me) to become R-functional – I will continue to improve as the course tutorial structure/course materials make it easy to revise/hone skills.”
“I've been on other R courses and this was the best by far as I actually finished it feeling a lot less scared of R and omics generally!”
"I think the course was excellent. I had very little knowledge of bioinformatics at all, and I now feel I have a firm understanding of the different aspects of sequencing, data presentation and what said presentation shows."
