OpenHelix (and by “OpenHelix” I mean “I” is in Singapore this week for the Genetics and Genomics of Infectious Disease conference sponsored by Nature Publishing Group, American Society of Human Genetics and the Human Genome Organization.
I will be giving an educational workshop on an introduction to genomic resources for infectious disease research. It’s part of a larger session. Bob Kuhn of UCSC and Anton Nekrutenko of the University of Pennsylvania will each be giving sections after mine and will be discussing the UCSC Genome Browser and Galaxy respectively.
Since most of our readers won’t be able to attend, below the fold (click the continue reading) I’ve listed just some of the resources I’ll be introducing.
Unfortunately, I can’t introduce most of you to all the amazing fruits (and other foods) I’ve been sampling like mangosteens, jack fruit, dragon fruit and yes, even durian (which I actually like the taste, not so much the smell) You’ll just have to come to S.E. Asia (if you aren’t already) for yourself.
This list is by no means comprehensive. I’ve only got 75 minutes or so. So I plan on just giving the attendees a taste of some of the huge number of resources available to them.
