Description

CyVerseUK Workshop: Bioinformatic Tools for Biologists

This meeting is focused on researchers who are either toward the beginning of their studies or have moved onto a new subject area. We will provide a hands-on sessions that will describe the use of software tools that can interrogate RNAseq, imaging, gene expression or GWAS data. Importantly previous users will provide real-life examples of how the software has been successfully used. This is the 'Learner Track'

In addition we will host a concurrent track for more experienced bioinformaticians who wish to learn how to use CyVerse to host their own programs. This is the 'Intermediate Track'. The concurrent tracks will run in separate rooms.

These software tools have been developed as part of the CyVerseUK grant (www.cyverseuk.org). We will also highlight the opportunities that exist for the sharing of big data in a meaningful manner.

This workshop is organised by GARNet with Professor Katherine Denby at the University of York.
