Translational Bioinformatics

Note: this workshop was offered previously outside the MLA-Phil region under the title of "Clinical Informatics”.  It is not the same workshop as "Foundations of Bioinformatics and Searching," which Diane Rein taught during her previous visit to Philadelphia in November, 2010.

The major goals of this course are:

·       To familiarize participants with clinical bioinformatics databases

·       To learn expert level search strategies within these database

·       To leave with a basic understanding of human genetics principles and vocabulary

The session will cover clinical bioinformatics and its relationship to translational medicine, biomedical informatics, clinical informatics, and electronic medical and health records. 

There will also be a module covering the biology and vocabulary in genetics, genomic variation and mutations and how to implement that vocabulary through searching several major clinical bioinformatics databases (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) which integrates biological data with human disease data and information,  Human Genome Epidemiology Navigator (HuGE) and PharmGKB, the NIH-designated personalized medicine database which interrelates biological data with pharmacological and other pharmaceutical-related drug information.)

The workshop ends with an overview and demonstration of clinical bioinformatics public health
