FreeBIT courses

We host two educational web sites, EDUSOFT, located at the U. of Malaga, and a Moodle e-learning school.

Additionally, we have started a collaboration with SOIBIO and ISCB to promote development of open access materials for training in Bioinformatics and Biocomputing, with special involvement of their respective student chapters.

We produce training courses, materials and tutorials aimed at end users, scientists, developers, private companies and opinion makers. They cover everything related to FLOSS and the Life and Health Sciences from how to use programs, through development techniques and explotation advice.
