Hosting training at your institute

Would you like EMBL-EBI’s trainers to come to you and teach your researchers how to use the bioinformatics resources most relevant to their research? Contact us to find out more.


We offer a range of half-day and full-day modules, which can be combined to suit different audiences. Take a look at our modules, or browse upcoming and past workshops (below) for inspiration.

As well as contributing to EMBL-EBI-wide training events, some of our teams run workshops dedicated to a single resource:

  • Find out about Ensembl training.
  • Find out about PDBe training.
