What is this about?
This workshop will provide an overview of bioinformatics training at postgraduate level being offered across EMBL-ABR Nodes and what is happening in this area in other parts of the world. We will discuss what are the demands and offers when it comes to bioinformatics training around the globe, how this differs or not from the specific case of Australia, how training is reaching trainees, and whether or not it can scales up. In particular we will look at principles of open software and open data as basic concepts that could also be applied to training and contribute to its scalability.
Who should attend?
Trainers, organisers and general faculty involved in postgraduate courses.
