We recently received this update from European Bioinformatics Institute on their much anticipated training site for life scientists:
"We’re delighted to announce that EMBL- EBI has launched the beta release of Train online.
What is Train online? Train online is a free, web-based learning resource for life scientists.
How can Train online help you? Train online helps you make the most of the huge amount of biological data that the EMBL-EBI makes publicly available for the research community. Using a combination of tutorials, guided examples, exercises and quizzes, Train online guides you towards becoming a confident user of open-access data resources. Current topics include data resources for genomics, functional genomics and proteomics. More will be added soon.
Who is Train online for? Train online is there for you to learn in your own time and at your own pace. You do not need previous experience in bioinformatics to benefit from our courses.
Want to know more? Visit www.ebi.ac.uk/training/online. Here you can access all our courses, as many times as you like, free of charge. We warmly invite you to register and sign up for Train online updates, which will alert you when we add new courses and features.
