Build Interactive Data Visualization Tools in the Cloud


2-6 July 2018


This course is a bootcamp in bioinformatics web development. By the end of the course, students will have built their own interactive data visualization web applications in the Cloud, to be shared with a global community of scientists.



Target Audience

This course is aimed at scientists who have some knowledge of bioinformatics and are interested in building bioinformatics software for the web.





Some programming experience in any language is required. We will be giving an introduction to JavaScript assuming that you know another language well enough to be comfortable with variables, for loops, if statements, and other common programming concepts.


Prior to the course, give some thought to the kinds of data visualization tools that could help your own field of research.

Monday 2nd. 09:30-17:30

Session 1: Introduction to 21st century bioinformatics.


In this first session, we will give an introduction to the course and highlight emerging trends in bioinformatics that are already impacting how science is done. We will have a group discussion about how these topics will influence students’ respective fields of research, and brainstorm specific problems that we can attempt to solve with data visualization during this course.
