We are pleased to announce the 2nd transPLANT user training workshop. Held in Poznań, Poland (Adam Mickiewicz University campus, Dept. of Biology, Umultowska 89, 61-614 Poznań) on 27-28 June 2013.
transPLANT is a consortium of 11 European partners gathered to address the challenges of complex plant genome data integration and to develop a trans-national infrastructure for plant genomic science.
This second transPLANT user training workshop (see attached program) will focus on current developments in plant data resources at transPLANT partner sites, with a special reference to Triticeae, as a lot of exciting but complex data was and is generated at the moment. We will also discuss topics related to standardisation and annotation of plant phenotypic data. The workshop is targeted at experimental biologists and breeders who may have need to use these resources in everyday work to interpret their own observations. No particular prior informatics knowledge is required.
In different sessions we will introduce various plant data resources, explain what data is available and how to search, obtain and use this data.
There is NO registration or workshop fee but you will be responsible for your own travel, accommodation, and local expenses. The number of participants is restricted to 25. The organizers reserve the possibility of selection of participants on the basis of information obtained at application.
If you are interested in that workshop please send the information required in the attached application form to Paweł Krajewski, Institute of Plant Genetics PAS, Poznań (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 10th May 2013.
Institutions teaching in workshop:
At this workshop we both explained data analysis concepts and introduced data resources and tools for the genomes of Triticeae including wheat and barley. The partners contributions you find below typically consist of an introductory presentation and hands-on training material (tutorials) including step-by-step answers for all of the tasks.
