Course Overview

The Ensembl project at www.ensembl.org provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of mainly vertebrate genome sequences. This 1-day workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser but also provides them with the necessary background information. Our sister project at www.ensemblgenomes.org can also be covered if participants are working with bacteria, plants, fungi, protists or (invertebrate) metazoa.

 

Ensembl delivers workshops covering the Ensembl Browser and the REST API in many institutes all around the world. This Train-the-Trainer workshop will provide the tools and training to help attendees deliver their own Ensembl Browser workshops in the future.

The workshop is primarily targeted at wetlab researchers and bioinformaticians who have attended an Ensembl workshop and wish to deliver their own Ensembl training events.
