Ensemble Workshop 

This 1,5 daysí workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining lots of hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl  genome browser but also provides them with the necessary background information. The workshop is primarily targeted at wetlab researchers.

We would like to ask you to fill out this questionnaire by using this link: t.b.a.

An experienced teacher of the European Bioinformatics Institute will give this workshop.

The Ensembl project (see at: www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of, mainly vertebrate, genome sequences. Most modules consist of a presentation, followed by the opportunity to do exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring problems/questions about their research to try to tackle these during the workshop using Ensembl.


Audience and participation
This workshop is open to all participants of Molmed, MGC and Erasmus MC and other interested students and scientists, and is free of charge for MolMed members. Participation is limited to 24 participants due to the nature of the workshop.
The only prerequisite for this workshop is general knowledge of molecular biology / genomics and a familiarity with web browsers.
