*Dear all,*


We are pleased to announce applications are open for a virtual CABANA 
training workshop this August. Please see below for more details 
including how to apply.

Title:Genomic and transcriptomic resources for eukaryotic species


Dates:2-10 August 2021, Brasilia time (BRT / UTC-3)

Deadline for Applications: Sunday 18th July 23:45 BRT

Registration fee:$0 - Free



This course is intended to be a gentle introduction to the computational 
resources available for analysis of omics data in eukaryotic species. 
Specifically, we will cover: 1) an optional Linux crash course; 2) file 
formats commonly used in NGS data analysis; 3) web resources available 
for the analysis of eukaryotic omics data; 4) common bioinformatics 
pipelines used to analyse genomic/transcriptomic data from eukaryotic 
species (sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree reconstruction, variant 
detection, RNA-Seq and data visualization in genome browsers). Live 
components of the course will run around 09:00-12:00 BRT and you are 
encouraged to use the afternoon to practice, using a specified forum or 
communication method to ask for support. Support will end around 17:00 
BRT each day.

Target Audience

This course is suitable for postgraduate students (MSc-level and above), 
postdoctoral-level researchers, newly established principal 
investigators and other research scientists within Latin America, who 
wish to use omics resources/analysis in their own research. We welcome 
applications from universities, research centres, hospitals, public 
health, and private laboratories.

Scientists from underrepresented ethnic and gender groups (women, Black 
and Indigenous heritage) are especially encouraged to apply for this 

Please note this course will be taught in English, however the trainers 
are fluent in either Portuguese or Spanish and can offer language 
support where feasible. Attendance priority will be given to those who 
have not attended a CABANA event yet.

Please forward this call through your networks and local bioinformatics 

We wish you the best with your applications.

Kind regards
