Enabing biomedical R&D with the power of bioinformatics, Perl & Unix...

The Biomedical Information Age

The science and practice of medicine has undergone a fundamental change as a result of large-scale genome projects that led to the sequencing of a number of important genomes, including human and several mammalian, animal, plant and microbial genomes in the last 5 years. Ground-breaking innovations in discrete and separate domains and convergence of technologies from disparate fields are the driving factors behind the advancements we see in biomedical research.

PerlSource Informatics is positioned at the confluence of biology, medicine and information technology and was established to combine deep domain knowledge of biomedical sciences, genomics and discovery research with industry standard software engineering and design principles.


Our main objectives are to -

§ create practical, useful tools for the scientific community in the context of real-life, real-value biomedical problems that researchers face on a routine basis

§ provide customized and skills-based cross-disciplinary training to life scientists and computer scientists needed to acquire a firm understanding of the basic, underlying principles of each domain (molecular biology and information science)

§ provide industry and academic labs with specialized research, data analysis, management and consulting services to enhance R&D productivity

For more information, please explore our courses in Perl and Unix for Bioinformatics, web-based tools and techniques used in Bioinformatics and genome analysis and the Fundamentals of Biotechnology or contact us with your specific requirements via email at courses@perlsource.net.

Courses & Programs

Bioinformatics is a cross-disciplinary field and there is a need to provide cross-functional training to professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds. In order to make Bioinformatics training accessible to everyone in a convenient form, we have designed web-based courses that can be taken at your convenience and completed as per individual schedules in a self-paced manner. Our courses are built gradually from the ground up and therefore can be done by professionals from diverse backgrounds. We currently have students from US, Europe and Asia who are biologists, physicians and software engineers with a BS, MS, MBA, MD or Ph.D.


We use a functional problem-solving approach in our teaching. In the words of one of our students, "I whole heartedly support the PerlSource teaching methodology. I have always found that learning things in an application context is the fastest way to acquire a significant understanding of the subject. I also believe that reading important journal papers and thinking about the research problems therein is vastly superior to being led by the hand through a textbook.".

Perl 201. Advanced Perl for Bioinformatics

Perl 201 is an advanced level course and the 5 modules together describe the tools and techniques that are currently used in the industry for such diverse tasks as genome annotation, comparative genomics, new target identification and so on. During the course students will be required to read and analyze scientific papers on Bioinformatics and Genomics and complete assignments in Genomics and programming. The entire course can be completed in a self-paced manner in 8-10 months.

Unix 201. Advanced Unix for Bioinformatics

Unix is the platform of choice for large-scale Bioinformatics operations. Among other things, Unix 201 describes work-flow operations in a typical high-throughput sequencing center - a fundamental aspect of large-scale sequencing that controls how sequence data is stored, distributed and processed in these centers - and, the biology of the sequencing process itself. Unix 201 can be taken in combination with Perl 201.
