The German Crop BioGreenformatics Network (GCBN) as one service unit within the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) presents the first user training that will be organized by the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU), the Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) and the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) Gatersleben. The GCBN is specialized in the field of Omics data analysis for crop plants and is well-known for its software platforms

07-DEC-2015 – 08-DEC-2015

Helmholtz Zentrum München,
Building No. 35 Room No 1050,
Ingolstädter Landstraße 1,
85764 Neuherberg

The 1st user training will focus on the workflow from genotypes to phenotypes. During the training participants will gain insights into the use of web portals to access plant genome resources as well as into data formats to describe plant phenotypic data. Furthermore, tools for managing and publishing phenotypic data and the embedding of such tools into your own programs will be presented. The needs for managing plant phenotypic data will be a central topic for discussions

Learning goals:
The participants learn about the use of plant specific databases like PlantsDB, the use and the embedding possibilities of tools to publish research data and about the ISA-TAB standard as format for plant phenotypic data.

The crop plant specific training is aimed at advanced PhD students, postdoctoral fellows or other scientists with knowledge about web-based molecular biological plant databases. Basic knowledge in Linux operating systems, Java programming and/or data formats and standards is needed.
