The SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science will produce a cohort of highly trained scientists capable of engaging effectively with the data science challenges involved in realizing the transformative potential of genomics across the broad range of its applications.

“Genomes are at the heart of all living things. In combination with modern data science techniques, genomics has the capacity both to reveal deep biological insights and to transform applications of the life sciences, from health to food and agriculture.”
Prof Cathal Seoighe, Director of SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science
