Event description

Description

What is this about?

There will be a 'lecture' component and a hands-on component where we will be conduct manual curation exercises using Apollo.

The Genome Train - the lifecycle of a genome sequencing project

Genome Annotation - why is it important?
Gene prediction
- what is a gene
- computation
- annotation

Genome curation
- knowledge
- curation - why is necessary?

The Gene Ontology - Functional Annotation

Anatomy of GO terms
Access to GO
What is term enrichment - where it can be done?
How to contribute to GO
Linked Expressions in the GO - modeling biology with LEGO and Noctua

Structura Annotation - Apollo
Biological principles for curation with Apollo
Apollo functionality: step by step
Curation example

Q&A

Exercises

Who is leading this training?

Monica Munoz-Torres

Biocuration Lead, Bioinformatics Scientist

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, California

Who should attend?

Any interested biologists or bioinformaticians, from undergraduates to senior researchers.

There are no bioinformatics prerequisites, programmatic or conceptual. Ideally participants will have knowledge of basic biological principles around the central dogma, and will be acquainted with the concepts of DNA sequencing, the generation of transcriptomic data, sequence alignment and sequence similarity searches.

What is required?

Participants must bring their own computer with:
- an up-to-date version of a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari only)
- ability to wirelessly connect to the internet
- ability to open PDF files.
- a mouse if you think it would suit you better than your trackpad (some people find using Apollo easier with the aid of a mouse)

Cost

After registering your details here, you will receive instructions to make a payment of $45. Your place is confirmed once payment is received. All proceeds from registration will go to cover costs for catering, and transportation expenses.
