Workshop Overview

The bioinfo-core workshop is scheduled for Monday, July 22, 2019, from 10:15 to 12:40 pm at the Congress Center in Basel.

The bioinformatics core workshop is a workshop by practitioners and managers of Core Facilities for all members of core facilities, including scientists, engineers, analysts, operations and management staff. In this 16th year of bringing the Core community together at ISMB, we will explore topics relevant to bioinformatics core facilities through lightning talks and demos followed by small-group break out discussions with insights brought back to the full audience for further discussion and knowledge sharing.

Part A: Technologies and Analytical Methods

Machine Learning, AI, single cell RNA-seq analysis, and conda/bioconda.

Part B: Communication and Training

Communication and project management tools and training offered by cores.

Part C: Small group discussion

During this hour-long session, audience members will divide into groups based on their own interests. Groups will come up with their main take away points and bring them back to the main audience for knowledge sharing and for further discussion. Topics may include all previous presentation areas as well as other areas of interest to running or working within a bioinformatics core facility.

Part D: Pipeline Demo

Demo of nextflow
