This workshop will include a short background lecture on the fundamentals of gene prediction and genome annotation followed by a hands-on component where we will conduct manual curation exercises using Apollo.
The workshop has been organised by EMBL-ABR and will be led by Dr Monica Munoz-Torres from Phoenix Bioinformatics who is an expert in genome annotation, current chair of the International Society for Biocuration Executive Committee, and former Project Manager of the Apollo Project.
Monica will be joining us direct from the San Francisco Bay Area, and we will have locally trained trainers on hand at various EMBL-ABR Nodes around Australia to help and facilitate the workshop locally.
