Taking a training course

We all make use of tools that we learned how to use intuitively. But this can sometimes mean that we overlook vital features.

The CeRIS library can help you get to grips with a number of tools that you may use every day but don't feel like you really master, by offering training courses (for Institut Pasteur staff) and recommending appropriate resources.

The library runs training courses for the tools that it offers on campus
