Bioinformatics Institute was created in 2013 (as a Bioinformatics courses from 2010 to 2013) with the support of JetBrains company
First Bioinformatics summer school
Bioinformatics Institute held the first-ever Bioinformatics Contest – an intensive programming competition devoted exclusively to bioinformatics problem-solving
Organization of regular workshops — «NGS data analysis» and «Medical statistics»
Bioinformatics Institute has opened online education in main educational programs. This made it possible to train students from any country
Launch of a new program of the Institute — «Biostatistics and medical data analysis»
The Institute's mission is to prepare highly qualified specialists as well as the popularization and dissemination of scientific knowledge in the field of bioinformatics.
In modern biology and medicine, a huge amount of data is produced. The specialists involved in processing them must understand how to extract information from them, build efficient algorithms and develop pipelines to automate work. For these purposes, bioinformatics comes to the rescue.

Bioinformatics involves the use of computer, mathematical and statistical methods to solve biological and biomedical problems. Bioinformatics methods are applied in "omics" (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics), drug development, personalized medicine, aging research, gene editing and cell engineering.

Bioinformatics, like biology and computer science, has a fairly wide range of methods and sections.
    If you are a biologist, bioinformatics will be useful in the following areas:

    • genome assembly
    • functional genome annotation
    • gene expression prediction
    • protein function prediction
    • search for genomic variants and their associated phenotypes
    • neonatal diagnosis for genetic diseases
    • questions of evolutionary and comparative biology
    • evolution modeling
    • drug development
    • gene editing
    • working with iPSCs
    In the process of studying bioinformatics, biologists gain practical skills in programming, statistical analysis, data processing and visualization of results, and also begin to communicate in the same language with technical specialists, set tasks correctly, check results and work more efficiently together with programmers and mathematicians, improving and creating bioinformatics programs.
      For computer scientists and mathematicians, bioinformatics is an opportunity to:

      • apply computer science knowledge to an interesting and promising area - medicine and biology
      • solve interesting and complex algorithmic problems
      • apply knowledge to solve the most important problems of mankind related to health, quality and life expectancy
      • make a real contribution to the development of the life sciences
