IC ECCO - Vertical Logo

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE WORKSHOP?

The ECCO2021 Bioinformatics workshop aims to initiate and facilitate bioinformatics, as the cross domain between biomedical research, advanced statistics, and computational methods, for the research community in the Republic of Moldova.

While expanding our knowledge of how life works, the application of bioinformatics methods brings us to systemic approaches, promising to transform our understanding of the regulation of complex biological structures. Cultivating multidisciplinary spirit through novel hypotheses and discoveries, considerable advances in health and wellbeing are expected.

Such workshops are proposed to become the stage for the knowledge and skills exchange, establishment of research collaboration and networking both for academia and industry experts.
