From Genes to Algorithms: Exploring Genomics and AI

Dive into the fascinating world of genetics, genomics, and artificial intelligence with our comprehensive course designed for students with a basic understanding of Python and machine learning algorithms. This course will take you through the intricate processes of molecular biology, bioinformatics, and advanced AI techniques, culminating in hands-on projects and presentations.

For middle schoolers and high schoolers

Pre-requisite: A basic understanding of Python and machine learning algorithms

Learn Artificial Intelligence - a new technology that is shaping our world!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is how Google search, Alexa, Siri, auto-correct, speech translation, face recognition, self-driving cars, etc. learn from data and humans. Get your student an edge in school, competitions and preparation for college and careers by learning AI!

Why this course?

This course offers a unique blend of biology and artificial intelligence, making it perfect for students interested in the intersection of these fields. You'll gain practical knowledge in cutting-edge technologies and tools that are shaping the future of science and technology. AIClub in partnership with LifeCodes Academy offers a unique blend of expertise in bioinformatics and artificial intelligence.

  • One year access to an online cloud account where they can continue to build new projects and learn more AI

  • Opportunities to compete and win in AI competitions. For more information on this, visit our Research Program.


Duration: 5 sessions / 3 hours per session

We offer a range of dates and times to accommodate busy schedules.

Since we use entirely online tools, if a student must miss a class, it is easy for them to do the required work at home. We provide materials for missed classes and drop in times for students to come in for personal assistance on material covered in a missed class. We do ask however that the student attend the first and last class since this is needed for them to get oriented and also complete their custom project.

Important Notice: The class schedules listed here are fixed. Session rescheduling is not possible in the event of student absence, even if the class has only one student. Thank you for your understanding.



My 12 year old and some of her friends have attended one of the classes. I was really impressed by how much she learnt in one sitting and how intelligently she described what AI was later that evening to a cousin she was talking to. They absolutely loved it! They can't wait for the next batch of classes to start. She is so intrigued, she is requesting me to enroll her for all future classes I can!

My kids (12 and 10) enjoyed the class very much. They are now able to articulate their much deeper understanding of AI with clarity. he approach of the class really opens up kids' imagination and creativity, demystifies AI to kids and makes it easy and fun. The kids also get to give a presentation on their creation -- a great practice for their presentation skill, a much needed real-world skill. I highly recommend this provider!
