This workshop introduces the participants to Pharmacogenomics, with emphasis on computational tools for pharmacogenomics analysis.

The main objectives are:

  • Understanding the genetic basis for variability in drug response
  • Introduction to systems biology and pharmacogenomics
  • Introduction to drug development in the post-genomic era
  • Drug targets and inter-individual differences in treatment response
  • Practice on use of ┬áselected pharmacogenomics databases and resources
  • Clinical Pharmacogenomics: Pharmacogenomics of Cancer Treatment
  • Applied Pharmacogenomics: Pharmacomicrobiomics
  • Ethical,┬áLegal,┬áSocial, and Economic Issues
