Training Program in Bioinformatics
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Bioinformatics Training Program for Health Research, with the first classes beginning in September, 2002. This innovative trans- disciplinary program offering learning streams leading towards a certificate, MSc or PhD. Dr. Steven Jones, Head of Bioinformatics at the Genome Sciences Centre and an adjunct professor at both SFU and UBC, has led this effort, involving faculty from UBC, SFU and BCCA. The program has been principally funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) with generous assistance from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research and other funding agencies.
