Whether in response to a collaborator’s question (e.g. Can you show me how to…) or in a formal academic setting, we all have experience with being the bioinformatics teacher. Yet we often feel ill prepared for this role. Providing excellent training is a challenge in any domain, and bioinformatics is no exception. Excellent training requires good planning and careful thinking, just like a well-formulated research plan.
This session will be a forum to learn best practices in how to establish successful bioinformatics courses, with particular emphasis on NGS training, and to discuss and exchange ideas with experts in the field. The CoBE CoSI, GOBLET, and the ISCB education committee are presenting this session as a joint effort.
