Curated by the Parkville Bioinformatics Training Group.

Type of support/resource Resource name Description Web address
Workshops Research Computing Services Free trainings and events are usually run by current Masters and PhD students who use the tools themselves. https://research.unimelb.edu.au/infrastructure/research-computing-services/services/training
Consultation / Colllaboration Melbourne Bioinformatics Bioinformaticians are available to advise on research design, grant submissions, tools etc. This is a free service. Longer collaborations are via subscriptions. Subscribe to newsletter. https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/newsroom/newsletter/
Newsletter Melbourne Bioinformatics Collaborations with national and international training initiatives to deliver specialised webinars and additional workshops featuring subject experts. https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/newsroom/newsletter/
Workshops Melbourne Bioinformatics Experts have been developing and delivering workshops for many years. Times and dates are advertised in University staff news, via the mailing list and the website training page. https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/training-and-events/
Online training Melbourne Bioinformatics There is a rich repository of training material housed at Github which can be accessed for online self-paced learning. https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/tutorials/
Consultation / Colllaboration Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) MDAP is a diverse team of data and software experts who collaborate with researchers to increase research capacity and impact across all disciplines. Skills include: high performance and cloud computing, natural language processing, machine learning, data analysis, data management and curation, image and video processing, virtual/augmented reality, and visualisation. Access via research collaborations, expert advice and short-term research projects. https://mdap.unimelb.edu.au/
Collaboration Melbourne Integrative Genomics (MIG) MIG is both an engine for innovative genomics research and a focal point within the Precinct for collaboration, conversation and education. They develop and apply innovative approaches to understand biological variation and function, and their roles in health and disease. https://research.unimelb.edu.au/integrative-genomics
In-house support Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (PeterMac) Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at PeterMac includes Computational Biology research laboratories, Clinical Bioinformatics, the Bioinformatics Consulting Core and the Research Computing Facility. The Research Computing Facility provides education and training for researchers at PeterMac in bioinformatics, computing, statistics and data management. https://www.petermac.org/research/programs/computational-biology-program
Tools Walter & Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI) WEHI has a bioinformatics division and many other labs conducting bioinformatics oriented research. Their website hosts a number of tools and resources, including their regular bioinformatics seminars open to all. http://bioinf.wehi.edu.au/
Seminar series WEHI WEHI staff can join the bioinformatics and computational biology mailing lists to keep up to date on seminars and other training events by contacting the Bioinformatics Divisional Coordinator. http://bioinf.wehi.edu.au/cgi-bin/current_year_list.cgi
