Introduction to EMBL-EBI Bioinformatics Resources - Hong Kong, China
This workshop provides an overview of the services provided by the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), covering several data resources and the research they support. The event is a mix of lectures, discussion and practical sessions drawing on case studies using public data.
The practical session explores functional genomics data resources, covering search, retrieval and interpretation of data from Ensembl, ArrayExpress and the Gene Expression Atlas.
Our workshop concludes with a discussion of key opportunities and challenges in the field.
This course is aimed at a general scientists audience working within the HKU, including both research scientists (professors, group leaders, principle investigators, PostDocs and bioinformaticians etc.) and students (postgraduate and undergraduate).
