Bioinformatics: EMBL-EBI - Introduction to EBI Resources
An introduction the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI). The workshop will introduce ways to navigate the website, search EBI database resources and access useful information and metadata. It will also highlight additional resources such as Train Online. Further information is available here.
This session is one of a series of short introductions to EBI Services, run together, but bookable separately (see Related Courses section below).
- Our courses are open to all who might benefit
- Booking priority is given to people from Cambridge University and Collaborating Institutes
- Individual Course fees are required only from External participants not from Collaborating Institutes
- The workshop is aimed at PhD, post-doctoral researchers and principle investigators working in wet-lab biology. Participants who are looking for a basic introduction to the bioinformatics resources offered by the EBI--- and want to know more about accessing and submitting biological data.
- Basic computing skills
- Graduate level in Life Sciences
