The purpose of the tutorial program is to provide participants with lectures and hands-on training covering topics relevant to the field of bioinformatics. Each tutorial will offer participants an opportunity to learn about new areas of bioinformatics research, to get an introduction to important established topics, or to develop advanced skills in areas they are already familiar with.

The tutorials are planned on September 8 and 9, 2018 in Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre and in Eugenides Foundation in Athens Greece, immediately preceding the ECCB 2018.
