EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) is a distributed national research infrastructure providing bioinformatics support to life science researchers in Australia. EMBL-ABR aims to: 1. increase Australia’s capacity to collect, integrate, analyse, exploit, share and archive the large heterogeneous data sets now part of modern life sciences research 2. contribute to the development of and provide training in data, tools and platforms to enable Australia’s life science researchers to undertake research in the age of big data 3. showcase Australian research and datasets at an international level 4. enable engagement in international programs that create, deploy and develop best practice approaches to data management, software tools and methods, computational platforms and bioinformatics services. EMBL-ABR is structured as a hub/nodes model, with the Hub located at Melbourne Bioinformatics (formerly VLSCI), University of Melbourne. EMBL-ABR is also currently exploring engagement with the European infrastructure for biological information, ELIXIR, and other relevant international efforts. One of EMBL-ABR Key areas is TRAINING, and as such we are involved in diverse projects relevant for bioinformatics training in Australia, with a current focus on Open Science and Bioinformatics.
From 24-28 October 2016, the EMBL-ABR Hub ran a week-long Best Practice workshop series focussing on the Data Life Cycle for biological and bioinformatics data. International and local faculty members joined highly engaged participants from around Australia: students, postdocs, lecturers, other...

This workshop will provide an introduction to existing solutions and methods for registries across a variety of areas relevant to bioinformatics, such as tools, datasets, standards, events and training.
This workshop will provide an interactive forum to discuss, review and gain an overview of Open Source and Software Development and will be based on content from the ELIXIR Software Development Best Practices group and aims to explore how to harmonise EMBL-ABR efforts in this area
Scientific topics: Software engineering
This materials are associated to the Galaxy Australasia Meeting 2017 kicks off on Friday 3rd February with the Researcher Training Day. This event targets life scientists working with Next-Generation Sequencing data, in particular RNA-Seq, RAD-Seq, and microbial genomes.

Melbourne, AustraliaAdvanced Scientific Programming in Python https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/news/apply-aspp-2018/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-scientific-programming-in-python Applications are now open for this international school being held in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. The Advanced Scientific Programming in Python (ASPP) summer school has had 10 extremely successful iterations in Europe (https://python.g-node.org/archives). Now, thanks to funding from the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), Melbourne is hosting the first ASPP workshop focussed on the Asia Pacific region. 2018-01-14 17:51:00 UTC 2018-01-21 17:51:00 UTC Juan Nunez-Iglesias, Melbourne Bioinformatics University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia University of Melbourne Melbourne Australia Imaging Neurobiology Informatics University of Melbourne email@example.com INCF Life Science Researcherspost-docsPhD studentsMaster studentsbioinformaticians workshops_and_courses  Pythonneurosciencesbioinformatics
