This two-week intensive training workshop provides a robust background in bioinformatics suitable for teaching and research projects. The first week's training is built around a sequence analysis core which focuses on the analysis of a gene and/or protein family through the construction, optimization, and subsequent mining of a high-accuracy multiple sequence alignment. The second week of the workshop is built around assembling and analysing data from next-generation sequencers. Topics covered will include assembly (with and without a reference genome), the analysis and assembly of RNA-SEQ data using the trinity software, and the analysis of metagenomics data. Participants will also learn how to use the Galaxy web interface to perform the analyses described in the workshop as well learn how to use the Python scripting language to create their own unique assembly and analysis pipelines. Financial support is provided to participants through the National Institutes of Health Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) grant: T36-GM-095335
