Our bioinformatics workshops will focus on enabling molecular life scientists in Latin America to access, visualise, analyse, annotate and interpret biomolecular data, and will support them to place their own research data in the public domain. They will be modelled on EMBL-EBI off-site courses and tailored to the research interests of our hosts. Travel costs will be subsidised for hard-to-reach groups of scientists. 

If you would like to be kept up to date about workshops, please join the CABANA mailing list.
