A professional training program to make you a professional bioinformatician. Here is the route that will help you accelerate in your career path.  

Learn Bioinformatics and Data Science in one Program

Our Philosophy

Medicine and life sciences depend more and more on the big data produced  by the high throughput omics technologies. Bioinformatics methods dealing with such big data in combination with methods from data science and artificial intelligence form the new skill set you need to learn to progress in this field.

Objectives of the training programs

Build Professionals
To build up professionals who can use data science, artificial intelligence, and bioinformatics skills to handle real life tasks and solve questions in different fields of life science and medicine.

Create new training experience
To provide a training environment simulating what can be encountered in daily working environment, both in research, industry and healthcare practice.

Registration and fees

Register for the course

First step is to fill the registration form and submit your application.

Wait for approval

All applications will be evaluated and who are eligible will be invited to join the program. 

Make payment and join

Once accepted, review payment option and make payment to secure your seat.


Professional training certificates are issued per module and per level
Certificates are authenticated by Cairo University

Teaching Method

The courses are mostly live and interactive in classroom. 

Computing power

Computing power will be provided either in lab or through cloud computing.


Anyone from life science background or computing background. Trainees from the life science domain should attend level 1 if they did not have any computing knowledge.

You can register per level. Certificates will be issued for each level and for each module and for whole program.

No, it is a professional training certificate to prove your expertise in the field.

Yes, if you think you have enough knowledge then you can join certain level. You need to discuss this with the program coordinator.

The program is live and most of the courses are in classroom in the labs of the faculty of engineering. Online courses are organized in case of difficulty of reaching the lab.

Yes, but paying per program grants you a significant discount.
