Decoding Bioinformatics: A Primer For Life Scientists https://dresa.org.au/materials/decoding-bioinformatics-a-primer-for-life-scientists Bioinformatics is a vital component of biological and medical research, supporting data-driven discoveries, genomic medicine, and the development of innovative therapeutics. As the life sciences becomes increasingly data-driven, ‘doing’ bioinformatics to extract, process, analyse, and interpret this data has become an essential skill for molecular life scientists. In this masterclass, we delve into the vast world of bioinformatics, illuminating key concepts and experimental design considerations. We explore common experimental applications and essential but easy to overlook practical considerations like how to access the database, software, and computing resources you need. *The Sydney Informatics Hub is a Core Research Facility at The University of Sydney, enabling excellence in research* [https://sydney.edu.au/informatics-hub](https://sydney.edu.au/informatics-hub) sih.training@sydney.edu.au Bioinformatics, bioinformatics training, training material
