We are now accepting application for the Computational Genomics Summer Institute 2024!  Please follow the application link above and see below for more information.  The preliminary CGSI 2024 speakers will be announced in the winter and will be updated as they confirm.

The Computational Genomics Summer Institute 2024 dates will be:
July 10 – July 13 – Big Bear Retreat
July 15 – July 19 – First Short Program : Computational Genomics – Workshops in Popgen/Statgen, Computational Methods in Genomics and Computational Methods
July 22 – 26 – Middle Week Long Program
July 29 – August 2 – Second Short Program :  Computational Medicine – Workshops in Genomic Biobanks, Machine Learning in Health

Long program participants attend the entire program.  Short program participants attend one of the two short programs.

CGSI alumni, did you publish an article as a result of CGSI?  Please tell us about it!

CGSI is supported by a grant from the NIH.  Outcomes of the program, including publications that resulted from a collaboration that started at CGSI, demonstrate the impact of the program. Please complete the form to report a publication. The form also has a space for reporting other kinds of outcomes.

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 and the Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Consortium to Advance Health Equity and Researcher Diversity (AIM-AHEAD).


Long Program

Graduate students and recent PhDs may apply to participate in the entire 23-day long program (July 10 – August 2), including the Big Bear retreat and both short courses. The intermediate week will consist of morning lectures and group discussions and presentations. Housing is available for an additional fee.

Short Programs

There are two short programs or workshops. The first short program (July 15 – 19) focuses on computational genomics and includes workshops on Population and Statistical Genetics, Computational Methods in New Genomic Technologies and Computational and Mathematical Methods. 
The second short program (July 29 – August 2) focuses on methods in computational methods in medicine inlcuding computational approaches to medical imaging, machine learning applied to health data, and computational genomics of biobanks.  The program includes workshops on Genomic Biobanks and Machine Learning in Health.  
Both short programs feature research talks and tutorials, social and cultural activities, and some meals. Housing is available for an additional fee.
