TrainMALTA Project

Interdisciplinary Training in High-Throughput Sequencing, Bioinformatics and Model Systems: Moving towards Clinical applications of Genomics
Acronym: TrainMALTA

TrainMALTA is a project financed by the HORIZON 2020 TWINNING Programme. This 3-year coordination and support action focuses on the transfer and exchange of knowledge between expert groups from two internationally-leading research institutions, the University of Cambridge (UCAM) and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), and scientists, postgraduate students and academics from the University of Malta (UM). As part of the project a series of training events, summer schools, online repositories of training material, exchanges and expert visits are organised. These events are open to all staff and students of UM and are aimed at facilitating networking and collaborations.

Training activities focus on:

  • Bioinformatics for analysis of High Throughput Sequencing data
  • Epigenetics
  • Model systems 
  • Zebra Fish
  • Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (IPSC)
