Crop Analysis Tools: Join These Upcoming Online Workshops
The 'German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure – de.NBI', in which several AGENT partners are actively involved, provides new online workshops inviting you to learn more about its crop analysis tool suite. In the first course, you will be introduced to a tool used to access the barley genome. The second session will showcase a portal for the exploration of barley diversity. Both tools have significantly contributed to the conceptualisation of the AGENT project and will provide a solid base for the new results to be expected from AGENT.
Join the experts:
Speakers: Uwe Scholz (GCBN), Sebastian Beier (GCBN)
The primary objective of this training course is to introduce tools for sequence analysis for crops (in particular barley). The theoretical basics as well as some examples will be shown by using online demonstrations, which will enable the participants to design and perform their own analyses. The training course is designed for early career scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also for experienced scientists who want to learn more about the analysis and handling of sequence data for complex plant genomes like barley.
Speaker: Patrick König (GCBN)
The goal of this training course is to provide an introduction into the BRIDGE web application, its available data domains and its use for data visualisation, exploratory data analysis and data export for different use cases of specific research interests. The training course is aimed at young scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also at experienced scientists who want to learn more about exploratory data analysis, visualization and exploitation of plant diversity data for use in breeding and research.
The 'German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure – de.NBI' is a German national infrastructure supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It provides comprehensive, high-quality bioinformatics services to users in life sciences research and biomedicine. The partners organise training events, courses and summer schools on tools, standards and compute services provided by de.NBI to assist researchers to more effectively exploit their data.
