Arthropod Genomics Symposium 2022: pre-meeting VectorBase hands-on Workshop

Registration for both the Arthropod Genomics Symposium 2022 (June 9 - 11) and the pre-symposium VectorBase hands-on Workshop 2022 (June 5-9) are both online!

The VectorBase hands-on Workshop will also feature training on the Apollo manual curation tool. Please see the description below from VectorBase for more information, as well as the website:

Registration is now open for the VectorBase hands-on Workshop 2022
6:00 pm on Sunday, 5th June to 12:00 pm (noon) on Thursday, 9th June 2022
University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana
In-person (sessions will not be virtual or recorded)

This workshop is scheduled as an Arthropod Genomics Symposium (AGS) pre-meeting event, and even if you are not attending AGS, you are more than welcome to attend the workshop.

This is a 5-day intensive workshop that will provide you with hands-on training on how to effectively use VectorBase to mine the available data and to analyze your own data. Since VectorBase is part of the VEuPathDB Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC), all learned knowledge can be applied to its other components such as those supporting vector-transmitted pathogens Plasmodium (PlasmoDB), Leishmania, Trypanosoma (TriTrypDB), Babesia, and Theileria (PiroplasmaDB).
