  • Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and Antimicrobial Resistance

    31 August 2020 - 3 January 2021

    Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and Antimicrobial Resistance # Overview * **Duration**: 3 weeks, 3 hours per week * Free * Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion * **CPD Approval**: Royal College of Pathologists (9 credits), Royal College of Nursing (9 credits) * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 3 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? The increase in resistance of harmful bacteria to antibiotics is a major global threat to health. Here we explore bacterial genomes and the use of genome sequencing to identify and track these drug resistant bacteria. Join us to discover how genome research is helping scientists and healthcare professionals track disease outbreaks and prevent the rise of antibiotic resistant ‘superbugs’. ### Who is the course for? This course will be of interest to scientists, healthcare professionals, biomedical researchers and bioinformaticians. The course offers all learners an opportunity to learn about genomes, disease, and antimicrobial resistance. You require no previous knowledge of genome science to complete the course. ### What do people say about this course? "_I would definitely point students to this resource. Text, videos, and figures were all very well done._" Pablo Tsukayama, Assistant Professor of Microbiology "_A highlight of the course was the introduction to whole genome sequencing – new information for me._" Christine Laws, Medical Doctor “_Exchanging genetic information quickly throughout the world is clearly going to revolutionise the ability to combat disease._” Prue van der Hoorn, Artist # Programme and start dates ### Course start dates This course is repeated twice a year. ### What topics will you cover? * Diseases caused by bacteria * What bacterial genomes look like * Genome sequencing technology * Mechanisms of transmission and resistance * Genomic epidemiology – tracking the spread of bacterial pathogens * Antimicrobial resistance ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * Explain why some bacteria are pathogenic * Explore the structure of bacterial genomes * Describe the uses of different genome sequencing technologies * Investigate how genome data are used to track the spread of bacterial disease * Discuss the role of genome sequencing in stopping the spread of antimicrobial resistance # Educators ## **Lead Educators** **[Dr Adam Reid][1]** I am a senior staff scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute near Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

  • WORKSHOP: Practical tools for managing, moving and analysing data

    4 December 2020


    WORKSHOP: Practical tools for managing, moving and analysing data Are you constantly moving, storing, sharing and analysing data in complex scenarios throughout your research projects? Managing data well is now more important than ever for biological research but it can also be frustrating and difficult to know where to start! This hands-on workshop will explore and discuss data management challenges and introduce simple steps towards managing active research data. Participants will become familiar with CloudStor and its associated tools and services for organising, storing, sharing and analysing data, in a safe and secure way. Topics such as cloud storage, collaborative editing, versioning and data sharing will be discussed and demonstrated. You will learn how to set up an automatic way to move your data to the cloud so that your data is safe and secure. We’ll also show you how CloudStor integrates with data analysis solutions including Juypter Notebooks and Galaxy. This is a hands-on workshop using CloudStor (AARNet’s file sync, share and storage service). CloudStor is available to Australian researchers and provides one terabyte of storage to every individual researcher at AARNet-connected institutions. Trainer: This event will be led by Sara King, AARNet, and hosted by Australian BioCommons. Learning objectives: By the end of this workshop you should be able to: Identify common data management challenges Use CloudStor tools to store, move and manage data Describe methods for integrating CloudStor storage solutions with data analysis Who the workshop is for This hands-on workshop is tailored for biologists and requires no programming experience. Date/Time: 4 December 1:00pm - 4:00pm AEDT How to join The workshop is free but places are strictly limited to Australian life science researchers and students and registration requires an Australian institutional email address. Participation in this workshop requires access to a CloudStor account. You can check if you have access via your institutional subscription by finding your institution’s name on the CloudStor log-in list. If you do not have CloudStor access via your institution, you can still attend, but please advise us in advance so that arrangements can be made. 2020-12-04 13:00:00 UTC 2020-12-04 16:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Online, Australia Online Australia Australian Biocommons [] Biologists 30 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served data managementToolslife sciences
  • WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists - December 2020

    9 December 2020


    WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists - December 2020 Galaxy is an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience. It is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It also captures run information so that workflows can be saved, repeated and shared efficiently via the web. This interactive beginners workshop will provide an introduction to the Galaxy interface, histories and available tools. The material covered in this workshop is freely available through the Galaxy Training Network. 2020-12-09 14:00:00 UTC 2020-12-09 17:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia, Australia Australia Australia Bioinformatics [] [] Biologists workshops_and_courses [] bioinformaticslife sciences
