The partner institutions of ELIXIR Portugal have a long tradition in training. The IGC in particular excels in training in bioinformatics and computational biology, through programs such as the renowned Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics.

We are now building upon this tradition and expertise by extending our training programs to include short, intensive courses focused on topics of interest for ELIXIR such as Woody Plants and Marine Metagenomics. Furthermore, we will organize an annual summer school in plant bioinformatics, aimed at bringing together data producers and bioinformaticians, as well as researchers and industry.
