Category : Uncategorised

It has been a busy few months here in the EMBL-ABR Hub.

Dr Jason Williams came to Melbourne to present a workshop on CyVerse, and to discuss possible routes for collaborations, including a federated model of CyVerse for Australia. Full schedule and details of Jason’s CyVerse workshop.

Earlier in the month Deputy Director Vicky Schneider visited three Australian EMBL-ABR research communities (in Tasmania, Queensland and New South Wales) and she is currently engaging with and looking forward to meeting people from the other States.

The EMBL-ABR Hub continues to work on governance.  An exceptional list of local and international experts have agreed to join an EMBL-ABR International Science Advisory Group. Full details.

Booths have been booked at two upcoming major international conferences in bioinformatics: ISMB 2016 and ECCB 2016. Over the next few months we will be contacting the network to see how this activity can be used to showcase the best of Australian data, resources and expertise.
