To the HOD of Science,

through The Principal




The East Zone Science and Technology Centre @ VJC woul
d like to invite your
Secondary 3
students

to parti
cipate in the above mentioned course

wh
ich will be h
eld
from the
17
th



19
th

of November.




Bioinformatics is a fast
-
growing and new interdisciplinary science that is merging life
sciences with computer and informational sciences and technologies to understand and
utilize the enormous amount o
f complex biological data that is available. This crucial
role is most clearly seen in the case of the human genome project and other
sequencing projects on other organisms which have thrown up vast amount of data that
need to be analyzed and interpreted.

With Bioinformatics, researchers can do data
-
mining, compare results or collaborate online, as information from thousands of different
databases are integrated. This will enable them to visualize data and carry out computer
simulations, creating more oppo
rtunities to make new discoveries and innovations at an
ever
-
increasing pace.


This course aims to introduce students to bioinformatics through the study of
cancer. Ample time is allocated for experiments using bacterial DNA to simulate
studies of “cancer

causing genes”. Students will also be introduced to various
databases and techniques of searching these databases for information
.


Students who attended the course last year enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Th
ey
especially enjoyed the hands

on sessions an
d the interaction with the experienced
trainers from Genecet Biotechnologies. In response to the positive feedback, we are
offering more places this
year (
75 places in total). As places are limited, please fax us
the registr
ation form as soon as possible a
s places will be allocated on a first
-
come
basis.
