The German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) presents the rst Summer School on Cloud Computing for Bioinformatics that is organised at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen from June 25th until July 1st 2017. Recently, the BMBF provided a total of 6 Mio € as additional funding for the de.NBI network to establish a federated Cloud Computing infrastructure that will provide more than 15,000 CPU cores as well as storage capacities free of charge to academic research groups and and individual researchers working in the field of computational biology. 

Therefore, this de.NBI Summer School will focus on the utilisation of Cloud Computing infrastructures for bioinformatics. During the training, participants will gain insight into state-of-the-art Cloud Computing technologies and learn how to efficiently utilize Cloud Computing resources to develop and deploy scalable bioinformatics tools. Participants of the workshop could bring their own tools, which will then be used in a Cloud Computing environment.
