The goal of the Bioinformatics Training and Education Program (BTEP), established by the Office of Science and Technology Resources (OSTR), is to increase the awareness and understanding of bioinformatics techniques and processes among CCR scientists, and to empower CCR scientists to perform a basic, informed set of analyses on their own behalf.

These training classes address the practical aspects of acquiring, representing, and analyzing complex biomedical data sets. Relevant theory and experimental design are also discussed. The goal is to provide both analytic recipes and to ensure better understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of sound analytical technique.
