EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility
4 - 8 October 2021EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility https://meetings.embo.org/event/20-bioinformatics-core https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-research-to-service-planning-and-running-a-bioinformatics-core-facility-62ea6744-3a2b-4478-886d-69be519d5e25 Computational core facilities play a vital role in enabling molecular life science, and the number of such facilities has grown considerably. There are many relatively inexperienced managers of core facilities, who often have to juggle their own research projects with the development and operation of services. This can be exceptionally challenging, not least because scientific impact tends only to be recognised and rewarded for research. The "EMBO Practical Course | Research to Service: Planning and Running a Bioinformatics Core Facility" is aimed at newly appointed managers of bioinformatics core facilities, especially those with one foot in the research camp, or those managers willing to stabilize and grow their services. The training set will provide an opportunity to learn from experienced core facilities managers on how to build a framework for the future development, resourcing, operation and impact assessment of your core services. By the end of the course, participants will have learned how to: *Identify the strengths and limitations of their core facility and prioritise areas for improvement *Design bioinformatics services and training using a user-centred approach and assuring best practices *Estimate the computing and human resources required to operate their facility effectively *Support users to manage their data, including sensitive data 2021-10-04 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-08 14:00:00 UTC Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center (IBG), INCLIVA Health Research Institute, Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) Bioinformatics INB/ELIXIR-ESBSC BSC Organising Team: firstname.lastname@example.org  Core Facility Managers 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest managing skillsdata managementsustainabilityservice designcomputing resourcesstorage needs
