Computational and Systems Biology Series
The Computational and Systems Biology (CSB) seminar series is offered in conjunction with the Graduate School CSB specialty curriculum track. The series highlights leading computational and systems biologists, reporting some of the newest trends in these areas. A meet-the-speaker lunch is offered following the seminar, which provides postdocs and graduate students an opportunity to interact with the speaker and the computational community of UT Southwestern.
Faculty Recruitment Seminars
The Department of Bioinformatics recruits faculty in foundational and translational areas of bioinformatics for positions at Assistant, Associate, or full Professor rank. In a departure from the traditional recruitment model, "Integrator" faculty are co-recruited with other basic science and clinical departments and complemented by "Innovator" faculty who focus on fundamental problems in computer science and applied mathematics. Despite topical diversity of research interests, the Department is expanding as a unit with synergy among the faculty and with other departments.
Special Bioinformatics Topics
Our research collaborators from across the country and abroad are invited to share their work with the UTSW community during campus visits. These seminars are offered periodically throughout the year.
BioHPC and BICF Training Series
The BioHPC infrastructure and Bioinformatics Core Facility (BICF) offer regularly scheduled educational opportunities. The BioHPC Training Series occurs weekly and covers specialized/advanced computing and basic HPC/general computing topics, BioHPC user showcases, and required new user training for the BioHPC. The BICF offers nanocourses that run for two days, eight hours per day, combining didactic lectures on topical content with hands-on workshop sessions facilitated by experienced bioinformatics faculty, industry experts and BICF personnel.
