The EuPathDB workshop is a 4-day thorough and intensive introduction to database resources that are part of the EuPathDB Bioinformatics Resource Center. It is centered on determining what is — and isn't — working for you, the end-user. Our goal is to maintain a fruitful and ongoing conversation between the developers and the biologists to obtain more efficient, effective ways to help you reach your goals. We hope this experience is as beneficial for you as it is for us, and we look forward to learning together.
Please read this page carefully to determine if this workshop would benefit your research group or your institution's parasite research objectives.
Who should apply: The ideal candidate has a need to become an expert user of one or more of these database resources and presumably has a bioinformatics research problem to work on while attending the course. Preference will be given to applicants who are willing and able to transfer their newly acquired knowledge to others at their home institutions. Evaluation of the applications will focus heavily on the responses to the questions asked on the application page and on letters of recommendation.
Costs and Fees: The course is free. Housing, all training materials and lunches are covered. Attendees are expected to provide their own transportation to the course and pay for a few of their meals. Letters of acceptance will be mailed early to facilitate the solicitation of outside travel funds.
