UNSW Genome Annotation Workshop cancelled

Regrettably, due to unforeseen circumstances, EMBL-ABR’s Monica Munoz-Torres Australian tour has been cancelled. As a result, the planned UNSW Genome Annotation Workshop will no longer be going ahead. We hope to organise something similar in future, so will leave the registration page up for a bit longer to get a list of interested parties.

EMBL-ABR network: an interview with Richard Edwards

From the EMBL-ABR February newsletter:

On 3 February we released an interview with Richard Edwards, the developer of SLiMSuite, an open source bioinformatics tool for the prediction of short linear motifs (SLiMs) and related sequence analysis. In this interview Richard reflects on bioinformatics in Australia as well as the realities of building a sustainable model for the development and maintenance of useful bioinformatics tools such as his.
