*Dear all,*


We are pleased to announce applications are open for a CABANA training 
workshop taking place this 8-12 November 2021 titled, “Exploring 
biological networks and its application in health and disease”. More 
information can be found below.

Venue:Virtual (Zoom)

Dates:8-12 November 2021, UTC-3 (ART / BRT time zones)

Deadline for Applications: Monday 25th October at 04:00 BRT

Registration fee:Free ($0)

Registration Link:https://forms.gle/VTqH6u8u6Xe1u7Fr8


This workshop will introduce open-source tools for creating, visualizing 
and analysing biological networks oriented towards the study of 
pathogens. Training will be provided on computational tools and 
databases such as Reactome, Cytoscape, Gephi for graph visualization and 
analyses, MetaFlux, Pathway Tools, BioCyc for reconstruction of 
pathway/genome databases using omics data, and Target Pathogen for the 
discovery of targets using integrative approaches. The main principles 
of network analysis will be covered as well as its applications to 
health and disease.

Target Audience

The workshop is aimed at biologists and computer scientists based in 
Latin American countries (excluding Chile and Uruguay due to funding 
restrictions) wanting to learn the basics of network analysis and 
biological data cure for clinically relevant pathogens. Trainees should 
be undertaking research at postgraduate-level upwards focusing on 
infectious diseases. No previous experience using interaction data 
resources is needed.

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

Researchers who apply for CABANA courses should have projects in one or 
more of the CABANA challenge areas (sustainable crop production, 
communicable diseases, protection of biodiversity).

Scientists from underrepresented ethnic and gender groups are especially 
encouraged to apply for this workshop, for example women and those with 
Black and/or Indigenous heritage.

Please forward this call through your networks and local bioinformatics 

We wish you the best with your applications and hope you have an 
enjoyable holiday season.

Kind regards
