Plant genomics: chloroplast genome assembly using Galaxy Australia

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 1-4pm
Online via Zoom

Join us to step through genome assembly using chloroplast sequencing data and the Galaxy Australia web platform.   It is becoming increasingly practical to use large genomic data sets to answer research questions in plant biology, but it can be difficult to know where to start. In this workshop, you will perform a genome assembly using […]

In an age of digital connectedness, open, highly accessible, globally shared data and analysis platforms have the potential to transform the way biomedical research is done, opening the way to ‘global research markets’, where competition arises from deriving understanding rather than access to samples and data. Other disciplines have embraced the benefits of global data generation and sharing, astronomy and high energy physics being two highly successful examples. We have the opportunity to mirror their successes in infrastructure funding by demonstrating that biological research can embrace the same global perspective on common infrastructure investment and data sharing.
