The Computational Genomics Summer Institute will be back in 2023!
The dates of the long program are Wednesday, July 12 to Friday, August 4.
The components are:

Opening Retreat at Big Bear Lake: July 12 – 15

First Short Program at UCLA:  July 17 – 21

Second Short Program at UCLA: July 31 – August 4

The program will be in-person. We will follow all UCLA, county, state, and federal COVID-19 policies to ensure the safety of participants. If policy does not allow us to hold CGSI in-person, or if you cancel due to circumstances related to COVID-19, your fees will be refunded in full.

Do you have a disability?  Please reach out to us to discuss accommodations and how we can help you fully participate in CGSI.

CGSI brings together mathematical and computational scientists working in the areas of genomics, medical imaging, and analysis of electronic health records. The program fosters interactions between researchers at all career stages and advances the mathematical foundations of this exciting field.

With support from NIH grants GM135043 and GM112625 and in partnership with the Safra Center for Bioinformatics at Tel Aviv University.


Long Program

Graduate students and recent PhDs may apply to participate in the entire 23-day program, including the Big Bear retreat and both short courses. The intermediate week will consist of morning lectures and daily affinity group discussions and presentations. Housing is available for an additional fee.

Short Programs

There are two short programs or workshops. The first short course covers computational genomics, while the second will include other computational methods in medicine (computational approaches to medical imaging, machine learning applied to health data, and computational genomics of biobanks). Both will feature research talks and tutorials, affinity groups, social and cultural activities, and some meals. Housing is available for an additional fee.
