The instructors really understand how to pace the course for the students in the classroom. I was concerned that the material would be over my head, but they constantly checked in to make sure everyone was on the same page. This really helped my comprehension.
The nine-week Microbial Genomics course was extremely helpful for improving my basic understanding of processing and analyzing genome sequence data. The instructors at ABiL are highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and skilled at explaining programs and scripts to novices. I recommend this course for anyone who is looking for a solid introduction to bioinformatics
"Best course I've taken at CDC! Please continue offering these types of courses."
I’ve taken four modules through ABiL: Bioinformatics Programming Basics, Genome Assembly, Computational Sequence Analysis, and Microbial Genomics. Each course was highly informative with a focus on a specific concept, and they complemented each other very well. The Microbial Genomics course, in particular, was extremely beneficial to me for showing how the concepts all tie together. I highly recommend any course offered – the material and instructors are well worth it.
I have had the opportunity to take a number of courses through ABiL to enhance and expand my very basic knowledge of bioinformatics. I particularly liked the 4-day courses that allowed the students to get more in-depth experience of the topics being reviewed. The classes are well organized and the instructors are very knowledgeable. I look forward to taking more classes in the future.
"I was nervous coming in because I don't have any background of analysis but I never felt it was over my head or beyond my abilities. The course was challenging at times but very well done and informative. I would definitely recommend it!"
"This was an excellent course. The modules on sequence alignment and building phylogenies were particularly good and very useful for me. The modules on genome mapping also provided an excellent introduction to working with NGS data. The instructors were excellent. They were patient, good at explaining complicated concepts, and they are clearly very experienced in this field."
"I was very favorably impressed and will seek to take as many ABiL courses as I can justify for my position. Professional development!"
"Very informative and useful! The printed guide is one of the best I've ever seen for a training course."
