The EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute: data resources, training and opportunities for collaboration. Phd. Cath Brooksbank

The molecular life sciences are becoming increasingly data driven and reliant on open-access databases. The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI;
http://www.ebi.ac.uk) maintains the world’s most comprehensive range of freely available biomolecular data resources. Developed in collaboration with
our colleagues worldwide, our databases and tools enable millions of scientists to explore, analyse, interpret and derive new knowledge from
decades of scientific endeavour. Our users come from academia, industry and the healthcare sector, and encompass both experimental and
computational researchers working in fields as diverse as biomedicine, biodiversity and agri-food research. Our training programme enables
scientists at all levels, regardless of location, sector or career stage, to make full use of public biodata and to share their expertise openly with others. I
will provide an overview of EMBL-EBI’s data resources and tools and describe some of the principles underpinning their development. I will summarise
opportunities for training, ranging from webinars through immersive short courses to research secondments, focusing on the CABANA project, which
aims to strengthen bioinformatics capacity in Latin America.
