Organizers
Bioinformatics Institute is a non-governmental non-profit research and educational institution. Our mission is to educate the new generation of highly skilled professionals and popularize bioinformatics in Russia. The Institute's programs, events, and online courses are open to students and professionals with mathematics, computer science or biology background. Our main research area is NGS bioinformatics and its application towards systems biology and medicine.
ITMO University is the leading Russian university in the field of Computer Science. It is the alma mater of winners of numerous international programming competitions such as ACM ICPC, Google Code Jam, and Facebook Hacker Cup. Several bioinformatics research groups gradually formed around these CS-champions, and ITMO University aims to further develop the area with initatives like Bioinformatics Contest and Master program in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology.
Stepik is a cloud-based platform that is designed to create and distribute interactive educational content as well as provide various types of automatically graded assignments with real-time feedback. The platform is suitable for a multitude of e-learning activities, from private on-campus classes to massive open online courses (MOOCs).
Rosalind is a platform for learning bioinformatics and programming through problem solving. It offers an array of intellectually stimulating problems that grow in biological and computational complexity; each problem is checked automatically so that the only resource required to learn bioinformatics is an internet connection.
