A new look for the EMBL-EBI Training website

9 Feb 2021 - 11:05

Summary 

  • Bioinformatics is increasingly being used across the life sciences
  • As the user community grows, easily accessible training is becoming more important than ever
  • EMBL-EBI's Training team has launched a new website that enables users to find the best training for their needs

The EMBL-EBI Training website has had a makeover. The site’s overhaul includes features such as an interactive search bar and filtering criteria, as well as new and improved course content including interactive quizzes, downloadable material and on-demand videos. These new features are set to help users see everything on offer in an easier, simplified and quicker way.

“We’ve created a brighter, smarter way to find bioinformatics training from EMBL-EBI, reflective of how those in need of bioinformatics training now want to receive it,” says Cath Brooksbank, EMBL-EBI’s Head of Training.

The project is a culmination of nearly two years of work, along with frequent user feedback sessions and expertise from stakeholders and key teams across EMBL. The improvements reflect the growing needs of diverse audiences turning to bioinformatics and computational biology to improve their research. The benefits of the new site include:

  • Quick and easy way to find relevant bioinformatics training
  • Flexible, free-text search based on EMBL-EBI search
  • The ability to combine search and filters to quickly identify courses
  • Modern, clean look and feel with simple navigation

"We encourage users to take a look at the courses, webinars or online tutorials and let us know which of the new features is their favourite,” continues Brooksbank.

More improvements to the website will be introduced as the project continues.
