Bioinformatics Self Learning Resources

Bioinformatics tools and learning resources relevant to sequencing data and other high-throughput genomic data analysis


This Bioinformatics Self-learning Resources guide has been compiled for students and researchers who are interested in learning how to carry out some of the most common bioinformatics tasks.  This resource provides links to our previous workshops and training on our licensed commercial bioinformatics software.  It also includes the links to our hand-picked list of high-quality publicly accessible tutorials and webinars from other institutions, focusing on open-source tools. 


  • In this guide, all mentions of commercial bioinformatics software which USC has subscribed to are tagged with a  USC-logo  icon.
  • If you already have project data ready to be analyzed, please do contact us and we can help you expedite your analysis alongside your learning.
