Announcing the WormBase ParaSite Roadshow

To help our users make the most of this valuable resource, we are visiting universities and institutes to provide hands-on training sessions.

These workshops will consist of a whole or part day of talks and practical exercises, centred on this new free resource for helminth genomics.  During the session, there will be plenty of time to discuss the application to your own research, face-to-face with the developers of this database.

We have initially arranged two workshops for the first quarter of 2016:

  • 24th February 2016 – University of Glasgow (already fully booked)
  • 9th March 2016 – University of Edinburgh (three places remaining at time of writing)

Attendance at these workshops is free of charge, however advance registration is essential.  To register, please complete this short form: http://goo.gl/forms/5wMzhLbscP

Additionally, we welcome suggestions for further workshops to be held later in 2016.  Hosting a workshop at your institution could prove very cost effective. There is no charge for the trainer’s time, however a contribution may be required towards travel for some locations.  If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please get in touch with us: parasite-help@sanger.ac.uk

We look forward to meeting as many of our users as possible during this roadshow.
