Dear all,

We are pleased to announce applications are open for a CABANA training 
workshop to be hosted at LANGEBIO, Cinvestav, in Irapuato, Mexico. 
Details can be found below.

The GCRF-funded CABANA project <http://www.cabana.online/> is also 
delighted to offer travel fellowships of up to £1125 GBP for researchers 
to attend these workshops. The fellowships are open to scientists from 
Latin America at any stage of their career. Early-stage researchers and 
researchers from minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

*Title:* CABANA Workshop: Introduction to R and Bioconductor for Genomic 
*Venue:* LANGEBIO, Cinvestav, Libramiento Norte Carretera Leon Km 9.6, 
Irapuato,  GUA,  36821, Mexico
*Dates:* 21-24 May 2019
*Deadline for Applications:* 30 April 2019, 23:30 UTC
*Registration fee:* $700 MXN
*Registration Link:* https://forms.gle/5WqqL3bf7i333odM7

The course will begin by introducing basic R commands and scripts, and 
move onto the use of R in genomics. Bioconductor will be covered in the 
second half of the course, with the final day focussing on genome 
annotation and downloading data using biomaRt, including a webinar on 
the Ensembl genome browser.

Topics will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, practical sessions 
and open discussions. Practical work during the course will use small, 
example data-sets and there will not be scope to analyse personal data.

*Target Audience*
The course is suitable for graduate students and young researchers with 
a background in biology who are keen to become proficient 
bioinformaticians within the fields of genomics and/or transcriptomics. 
We will start with the basics, so students with no prior programming 
knowledge are welcome. We have a number of Linux computers that you can 
use, and you can bring your own laptops.

Please note this course will be taught in English, however the trainers 
are fluent in either Spanish or Portuguese, and can offer language 
support where feasible.

Please forward this call through your networks and local bioinformatics 

We wish you the best with your applications.

Kind regards
