NORBIS Summer School

Bergen, 13. – 17. June, 2016

The first NORBIS (Norwegian research school in bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology) summer school, “An introduction to molecular biology, bioinformatics and biostatistics” will take place in Bergen, 13. – 17. June, 2016.

Students within and around NORBIS represent a wide variety of topics, from clinical medicine and biodiversity to statistical inference and mathematical modelling of networks, though many of you may still feel relatively specialised into a few subjects. As a means of creating a common NORBIS environment, we want to provide you with a baseline of knowledge within the range of topics covered by our research school. By attending this summer school, we further aim for you to be able to view your field from different angles, and also easier being able to integrate into inter-disciplinary research groups and projects.


The summer school will consist of four parts:

  • Morning primer sessions, with introductory lectures on topics relevant for NORBIS students, each day preparing you for the following lunch session (by school participants)
  • Lunch keynote sessions, together covering five central NORBIS topics (by invited speakers)
  • Afternoon group sessions, with cross-disciplinary group work
  • A poster session, where all participants present their own research project


You will find a tentative schedule and the registration information on NORBIS' web page here.
