Description: This event provides an introduction to the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) resources. During the workshop we will introduce ways to navigate the EMBL-EBI website, search EMBL-EBI database resources and explore our bioinformatics tools, including sequence searching and alignment tools. It will also highlight additional resources such as Train Online.
Also note: If you wish to learn any specific information about particular EMBL-EBI resources, then we will be running a series of separate short introductions later in the year, which will be bookable separately (see Related Courses below).
- The workshop is aimed at PhD, post-doctoral researchers and principle investigators working in wet-lab biology. Participants who are looking for a basic introduction to the bioinformatics resources offered by the EMBL-EBI and want to know more about accessing biological data and tools.
