TRAINING

ABiL team members deliver a series of hands-on instructional modules for workforce development and training in bioinformatics.

ABiL Instructional Model: ABiL instructors deliver course bioinformatics content in small group settings via a hands-on, active-learning instructional model. ABiL team members work side-by-side with students in a computer lab to provide personalized training on the use and application of cutting-edge bioinformatics tools. The specific training examples used by ABiL are grounded in real-world data sets and problems that are directly relevant to the students’ own work.

Modular Content Delivery: ABiL instructional material is granularly organized into a series of modules and sub-modules that can be readily rearranged to generate content that is most relevant to students’ needs. Course content for the modules and sub-modules, along with four semester long courses that are offered at CDC University, are described in detail in the links below.
