Overview of some of the EMBL-EBI resources with hands-on exercises

The European Bioinformatics Institute part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL-EBI) provides freely available data from life science experiments and tools for data analysis. It performs research in computational biology, and also offers user-training programme in academia and industry. In this workshop, I will introduce some of the EMBL-EBI resources, and choose some databases for a more in-depth exploration such as ENA, Ensembl and EVA.

Denise Carvalho-Silva PhD, European Molecular Biology Laboratory-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI)

Denise joined EMBL-EBI’s Open Targets team in June 2016, where she delivers workshops, provides user support and creates online training materials for the Open Targets projects. Denise holds a PhD in Biochemistry from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and completed her postdoctoral training in Genetics at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. Before coming to Open Targets, she worked in Ensembl at EMBL-EBI, at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute as a Research Associate in Human Evolution in Chris Tyler-Smith’s group, and as a Senior Computer Biologist in the HAVANA team on the GENCODE, EUCOMM and Pig genome projects.


Join the End-user Bioinformatics Network (EBNET) and keep up-to-date on bioinformatics events, training sessions, new resources and tools available at Yale.
