What is this about?
This workshop will provide an overview of training at postgraduate level being offered across EMBL-ABR nodes and what is happening in bioinformatics in other parts of the world. We will discuss what are the demands and offers when it comes to bioinformatics training around the globe, how this differs or not from the specific case of Australia, how training is reaching trainees, and whether or not it scales. In particular we will look at principles of open software and open data as basic concepts that could also be applied to training to contribute to its scalability.
Scientific Organiser (Program/Faculty selection):
