C-MORE USER NETWORK TO SHARE BIOINFORMATICS SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE Lydia Baker Café call March 2013
US-EU WORKSHOP ON BIOINFORMATICS Microb 3: Biodiversity, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology A project funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (7FP) for Research Goals: Develop innovative bioinformatic approaches and a legal framework to make large-scale data on marine viral, bacterial, archaeal and protistan genomes and metagenomes accessible for marine ecosystems biology Define new targets for biotechnological applications.
MAIN AIMS OF THE M ARINE B IOINFORMATIC "M ARINE O MICS " TRAINING 1. To bring together young scientists in a forum that will set the groundwork for future overseas collaborative interactions. 2. To acquire the skills-set necessary for proper experimental design as well as analyzing diversity, (meta)genomics, (meta)transcriptomics, (meta)proteomics, (meta)metabolomics, and associated environmental contextual data from the marine environment.
T OOLS Beginning Linux computing Multiple alignment tools MAFFT, muscle, clustalw, and more Sequence identity tools and visualization BLAST, ARB, MAFFT, MG-RAST, CAMERA ITOL, phylodendron, MEGA-X Analysis tools MG-RAST, Qiime, Mothur Statistics tools Unifrac, Fastfrac, Matlab, R
P ROPOSED DISSEMINATION Create a network of C-MORE students, post- docs, and professors to teach next-generation Goal: Peer to peer information exchange Pre-seminar survey to see where focus should be spent and what expertise we have within the C-MORE community A one hour seminar on what tools were presented during US-EU bioinformatics training, how they are applied, and how to get more information.
P ROPOSED DISSEMINATION Continued dissemination: Smaller post-seminar meetings for persons interested in learning certain skills Voluntary participation in website listing who in C-MORE is a reference for which topics/skills
