BTEP LogoOffice of Science and Technology Resources (OSTR) established the Bioinformatics Training and Education Program (BTEP) in March 2012. The goal of this program 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. Over these years, BTEP has organized a series of coordinated lectures and training sessions, presented by subject-matter experts, focusing on select topics of data analysis.

These classes underscore the practical aspects of acquiring, representing, and analyzing complex biomedical data sets. Relevant theory and experimental design is also discussed where appropriate. The goal here is to not just provide analytic recipes but to ensure a better understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of sound analytical technique.
