BV-BRC Workshop UVA

NOTICE:

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 3-day Bioinformatics Workshop on August 30 - September 1, 2022, at the University of Virginia (UVA) in Charlottesville, VA. The workshop will be held at the UVA North Fork Discovery Park, approximately 10 miles north of UVA grounds. 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.

REGISTRATION

To register for the workshop, send an email to arw3s@virginia.edu. Registration is limited to 50 people, and will be accepted based on the order the emails are received. You should receive a confirmation email within 2 business days. If you don’t receive one, you can also reach us at help@bv-brc.org.

The workshop is free to attend, but participants must arrange and pay for their own travel, meals, and lodging. Light refreshments will be available. There is also a small coffee and snack bar in the building and a cafe and grill in the adjacent building.
