Who we are

The GTPB runs face-to-face Bioinformatics Training Courses regularly at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência since 1999. Up to now, more than 3400 course participants have acquired practical skills that they can use with a high degree independence. The Programme consists in a series of short, intensive hands-on courses that are made available to successful applicants.
