free COVID-19 genomic research Training
Coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 is an infectious disease that is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The COVID-19 outbreak has proven to become a deadly disease and has been declared a pandemic by World Health Organization.
There has been a huge amount of research on this novel coronavirus, but most of the research has not yet yielded profitable for the humanity in terms of saving lives. We see the research protentional to even increase, but behind closed doors - as there has been a halt on the institutions and the most if not all the research organizations or institutions are closing down as a precautionary step.
Since Bioinformatics & Computational Biology play a key role in developing novel drug compounds and vaccines against the diseases that outbreak. Hence, their has been exponential growth in the use of computational biology and bioinformatics tools, databases, scripts, software suites and various other methodologies in developing vaccines, mine knowledge and process Coronavirus 2's raw biological data.
At BioCode, it is our first priority to provide the best platform for the students, instructors, researchers and teachers where they can learn Bioinformatics tools, databases, Biological programming in Python & R. Keeping our values in line, we've decided to provide FREE training on the Coronavirus genomics research. Below, we provide 5 videos for free that teach you how to retrieve biological, genomic and annotation data for the novel Coronavirus 2. We are doing this as a small contribution for the scientific community.
Once you've gone through these videos, you'll be able to retrieve genomic, proteomic, annotation & raw biological data related to Coronavirus 2 or any other species. Each video is accompanied with a transcription that guides you through the process in the textual manner.
