The CTBR-Bioinformatics resource at Belfer host introductory workshop

On July 14th, 2016 an introductory workshop to the CTBR-sponsored Bioinformatics resource was hosted by the resouce director, Dr. Konstantinos Krampis, and lab members.  The purpose of the workshop was to expose current lab activities and future direction, as well as to provide the audience with information about the automation tools (i.e Galaxy and Docker) and services available to them, including the High Performance Computer Cluster, and the sequencing facility that is well equipped to support various types of jobs.

In addition, the workshop highlighted the importance of integrating computational capacity and cross-departmental collaboration to promote and advance research in various fields, including Biology, Chemistry, and Public Health.  It also emphasized the topic of cross departmental collaboration by the inclusion of computer science applications and programming languages.

Presentations and workshop resources can be found in the links below.
