Immuno-biotechnology and Bioinformatics in Community Colleges

The use of new technologies such as immuno-profiling (where large numbers of immune receptors are sequenced en masse) and targeted cancer therapies (where researchers create, engineer, and grow modified T cells to attack tumors) is leading to job growth and a demand for new skills and knowledge in biomanufacturing, quality systems, immuno-bioinformatics, and cancer biology.  In response to this new demand, Shoreline Community College (Shoreline, WA) has begun developing an immuno-biotechnology certificate.  Part of this certificate includes a five-week course (30 hours of hands-on computer lab) on immuno-bioinformatics.
