GENOMICS WORKSHOPS SPONSORED BY ALASKA INBRE:  Alaska INBRE is sponsoring workshops on large-scale DNA sequence analysis focused on developing hands-on computational skills to analyze real-world example data. A key goal of these capacity-building workshops is to ensure personnel at multiple University of Alaska campuses and partner institutions are trained in modern data analysis methods that are repeatable and sustainable. Thus, participants will use computational resources that are available to all U.S. researchers. Workshop leaders will be Drs. Brant Faircloth (LSU), Travis Glenn (UGA), and Natalia Bayona Vasquez (Emory). Additional trainers will include PhD students in Bioinformatics and Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia. Click here for more information  or REGISTER HERE.  Workshops will be online from 9am-noon Alaska time
