BV-BRC (PATRIC & IRD/ViPR) Workshop at Argonne National Laboratory, July 19-21, 2022¶
Dear BV-BRC users, we have reached the limit for the maximum number of in-person and virtual participants for this workshop. Hence, the registration is closed. Please subscribe to the BV-BRC mailing list or follow us on social media to learn about upcoming workshops and webinars.
The BV-BRC (Bacterial and Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center) team will be offering a Bioinformatics Workshop on July 19-21, 2022, at Argonne National Laboratory in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. The workshop will show researchers how to use the new BV-BRC website, which is a merger of the two long running bacterial and viral BRC resources, PATRIC and IRD/ViPR, respectively. The workshop will consist of interactive hands-on training sessions. During the first two days, participants will learn how to search for public datasets of interest and perform genomic, comparative genomic, metagenomic, and transcriptomic analysis using various analysis services and tools at BV-BRC. The third day of the workshop will focus on using command-line interface for programmatic search and retrieval of the data and job submissions, as well as users working with their own data and analysis problems with the help from the BV-BRC team members.
Note: Please note the COVID-19 restrictions and safety guidance currently in place at the Argonne National Laboratory.
All visitors must be fully vaccinated or provide accepted proof of negative COVID-19 test results that are less than 72 hours old.
Face coverings are required, except to the extent necessary to eat or drink when maintaining appropriate physical distance, or when an individual is isolated in an enclosed space.
We will keep the desks at least 6 feet apart from each other at the workshop venue to maintain safe physical distance.
There are outdoor seating areas with gazebos, which can be used during breaks and lunch time. Face coverings may be removed while outside and socially distancing.
