In collaboration with Monash University Malaysia, we are pleased to announce the latest Overseas Course in Working with Parasite Database Resources.

This week-long course aims to provide experimental biologists working on eukaryotic pathogens with hands-on experience in genomic-scale data analysis; including genome browsers and comparison tools, primary data analysis, methods for data integration and resources for sophisticated data mining (including the EuPathDB search strategy system).

Examples and exercises will be drawn primarily from the and resources focusing on eukaryotic parasitic organisms including Apicomplexa (ie. Plasmodium, Toxoplasma & Cryptosporidium) and Kinetoplastida (ie. Trypanosoma & Leishmania). Applicants working on any organism included in these resources will benefit.

The intensive programme will combine hands-on exercises with lectures and discussions on genomics and bioinformatics techniques, along with seminars from distinguished guest speakers.

The course is free to attend and open to research scientists and clinicians/healthcare professionals based in Asia and Australasia working on eukaryotic parasitic organisms. Additional limited bursaries are available to assist with travel and accommodation expenses. Places are limited and the course will be taught in English.

Reviews from previous courses

"I wish to thank the organizers, instructors and keynote speakers for sharing their experience with us"
"These computational techniques gave me an insight on how you can see certain genes after alignment. l also learnt how l can compare my gene to a reference gene or sequence"
"The facilitators were great, patient and willing to help 100%"
"The strategy used for the teacher was brilliant. They instigated us to think about biological questions and understand how reach the results we were looking for"
"This is the first course in which I had the opportunity to interact the most with the course instructors and organizers. All of them have been really kind, helpful and honest in their answers."
