Genomic Data Analysis Roadshow


Training the next generation of scientists

Thanks to the Australasian Genomic Technologies Association (AGTA) Small Grants scheme 2014, COMBINE and the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) are able to bring to Australia and New Zealand a series of workshops designed to teach essential computational and data analysis skills to students, ECRs and researchers in the genomic technology fields.

Each workshop is tailored to the needs of the local community. For further information or to enquire about bringing the roadshow to your area, contact
