EMBL-ABR/ELIXIR-UK Virtual Training Environment Workshop
with a showcase from the Australian GVL
When and Where
25th May 2017
This workshop will take place at the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge.
What is this workshop about
This workshop will consist of presentations from three experts (Yasset Perez-Riverol, Bjoern Gruening and Simon Gladman) and their current solutions when it comes to virtualisation and how it can be used within the context of training environments. We will discussed these in the context for open and scalable training.
We will devote a session of 2 hours to learn in particular about the Genomics Virtual Lab (GVL), which provides a cloud-based suite of genomics analysis tools that would normally require specialist assistance. The GVL has successfully been used across Australia as well as in collaborative training workshops around the world, for a variety of training modules including: Introduction to Galaxy, RNA-seq analysis, Variant Calling, assembly, Chipseq, metagenomics, RAD-seq.
