Microbial Genomics workshops
In late November the EMBL-ABR: UWA Node hosted a 2-day COMBINE workshop facilitated by Simon Gladman and Anna Syme from the EMBL-ABR: VLSCI Node. The workshop aimed to teach how to use Nectar resources, Galaxy, genome assembly and annotation, variant calling and RNA-Seq analysis for doing microbial genomics.
The workshop was funded by AGTA with matched funding by VLSCI and was one of a series held in a number of States. Feedback from the 31 participants was very positive:
I thought this was an excellent workshop, I found the information highly relevant and extremely easy to understand – definitely would recommend, PhD Student, School of Women’s and Infants’ Health, UWA.
The course was excellent even for first time people to use new software.
Great that the ‘why’ of everything was explained – not just the ‘how to’.
