The Philippine Genome Center is facilitating a Bioinformatics Internship Program for incoming and current Grade 11 students of the University of the Philippines Integrated School (UPIS) slated on June 8-19, 2020.
The 2020 Bioinformatics Conference aims to bring together researchers, students, and professionals from the field of genomics and bioinformatics. Themed “#BioInfoPH: Overcoming Challenges, Building Opportunities”—the conference intends to surface the complexities of conducting bioinformatics and genomics research in the Philippines and therein address these challenges through the conference forum.
The Philippine Genome Center is a multidisciplinary research and service unit of the University of the Philippines for health, agriculture, biodiversity, and the environment.
Student applicants must be undergraduate or graduate students in good academic standing, enrolled in a science or engineering course at an accredited college or university in the Philippines. Young professional applicants must have a BS degree in a science or engineering field, and be a researcher and/or faculty member employed at a research or higher education institution in the Philippines.
The program extends to four (4) batches which will be held throughout 2019-2020. The training of the first batch will run from June 17-July 26 , 2019.
