EuPathDB Workshop

EuPathDB Parasite Genomics Workshop

Walter Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research

Melbourne, Australia

February 15-19, 2016

Application deadline: January 20, 2016

This workshop will focus on providing attendees with thorough hands-on training in genomic scale data analysis based on parasite genomic resources.  Attendees should expect to become adept at using databases such as PlasmoDB, ToxoDB, FungiDB, CryptoDB and TriTrypDB to support their basic research.  Topics to be covered include:

  • Genome browsing and comparative genomics
  • Formulating complex biological queries in computationally accessible form
  • Integrating functional genomics data (microarrays, proteomics, etc) with genome sequence data
  • Theoretical aspects of genome re-sequencing
  • Querying genetic diversity on a genome-wide scale
  • Metabolic pathways and pathway analysis
  • Working with next-generation sequence data (mapping, variant calling, etc)
