    IBT Overview

    H3ABioNet‘s Introduction to Bioinformatics course (IBT) provides an introduction to the field of bioinformatics, with a focus on important bioinformatic tools and resources.

    Over a period of 3 months of intensive biweekly contact sessions, the course combines theoretical and practical sessions to allow participants to gain practical experience in using various tools and resources. During contact sessions, classrooms meet virtually to discuss the session’s content with each other and the trainer.

    Interested in hosting an IBT classroom at your institution? Contact   or submit a ticket on our helpdesk to inquire about upcoming course dates.

    A number of H3Africa members expressed an interest in and need for basic Bioinformatics training for individuals entering the discipline, or for those who need a basic foundational understanding of Bioinformatics before moving on to more complex areas. A task force, from the H3ABioNet Education and Training Working Group, has therefore developed an Introduction to Bioinformatics course in order to meet this need.
