Explore Current Research and Developments

Bioinformatics is a constantly evolving field analysing and simulating both the structures and processes of biological systems. In 2019, AMSI BioInfoSummer returns to Sydney, bringing together advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals from the mathematics, statistics, medical sciences and information technology disciplines. Attendees will develop their bioinformatics skills, national networks and employability.

The themes of the 2019 conference are:

  • Epigenetics/genomics
  • Single cell omics
  • Mass spec analytics
  • BioCAsia/precision medicine


Running over five days, AMSI BioInfoSummer gives attendees the opportunity to be involved at every level. The program includes hands-on introductory levels for beginners through to specialist lectures from international speakers and Australia’s top mathematical scientists.
