Genome Annotation And Sequence Based Gene Function Prediction  
December 12 and 19 2018

The Bioinformatics Facility will offer three data analysis workshops this year, including RNA-Seq Data Analysis, Genomic Sequence Data Analysis, and Genome Annotation And Sequence Based Gene Function Prediction. 

The third workshop, Genome Annotation And Sequence Based Gene Function Prediction, will have two sessions, covering genome annotation with Maker, using BLAST, PSSM and HMM for gene function annotation, Gene Ontology, and function enrichment analysis.  

Every workshop will include lectures and practical exercises, that can be conducted on your own machine, or on BioHPC Lab workstations especially reserved for the workshop. Our workstations run Linux operating system, so if you are going to use our machines and are new to Linux computing environment you may want to attend our free  workshops "Introduction to BioHPC Lab" and "Linux for Biologists". You can also use both workshop materials posted online to refresh your Linux skills:

Linux for Biologists Part 1   Linux for Biologists Part 2   Linux for Biologists Part 3

Access to BioHPC Lab workstations requires a Lab account. If you do not yet have an account on BioHPC Lab system, we will create one for you. Also, we will assign a machine for you to work on during  the workshop (during and after the sessions). Machine reservations will be active from December 12th until end of the day December 24th.

Machine allocations will be posted here.
