This five-day Workshop will be held at the National Science Complex, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines, aimed at early career researchers from the UK and the Philippines.
While bioinformatics is essential in the life sciences, relatively few biologists have the expertise to conduct in-depth computational analyses of their data. The realm of bioinformatics is mostly handled by computer programmers and IT professionals, who carry the tasks of analyzing, organizing, and storing data produced by molecular biologists.
Dr. Ana Da Silva Filipe, research fellow and next generation sequencing (NGS) facility manager at the Center for Virus Research, University of Glasgow, led participants in the whole-genome sequencing of the Hepatitis C virus in a training workshop conducted by the University of the Philippines National Institutes of Health (UP-NIH) and hosted by the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) on 18-26 April, 2017.
The short session on Data Management is organized for users of the PGC Bioinformatics facility last April 19, 2017 at the NIMBB Conference Room. Biological data is constantly increasing in size and complexity, and with these upcoming trends, the short workshop is conducted to be better equipped in handling these data on the CFB cluster.
The Philippine Genome Center (PGC) conducted an introductory molecular biology workshop at the DOST-PCAARRD Innovation and Technology Center (DITC) in Los Baños, Laguna on March 3, 2017.
A workshop attended by PCHRD staff on basic molecular biology concepts and tools, genomes, and applications of genomics, introduction to DNA sequencing technologies, and introduction to Bioinformatics analysis for high-throughput sequencing data.
Poster presentations of PGC’s ongoing research projects and updates from program directors and core facilities.
Forest Canopy Genomics Small Group Workshop
Held in an intimate setting that is conducive to free-wheeling and informal discussions, participants will discuss trends in local and international genomics research in the marine sciences and, more importantly, speculate or make predictions on future breakthroughs in the field.
