Training & Outreach

The activity in this core are represented by the development and delivery of a Canadian Bioinformatics Workshop as well as the development of this website.

Mission Statement

  1. Through a Canadian Bioinformatics Workshop (CBW) course, train internal and external users on performing cancer genomics analyses in the Collaboratory
  2. Establish a help desk for users of the Collaboratory
  • Management Team

  • Development Team

    • Ann Meyer, Manager, Knowledge and Research Exchange

Outcomes

This core provides formal and effective training for internal and external researchers in the us of the Collaboratory specifically, and more broadly for cloud computing for Big Data ‘omic datasets. The close engagement of the user community creates a virtuous cycle that will improve both the tools offered by the Collaboratory, and the research community’s ability to take advantage of the tools.
