	ADVANCED APPLIED COMPUTATIONAL GENOMICS COURSE (ADVANCED ACGC)


Building an In-house Bioinformatics System

  _____  


NRC Institute for Marine Biosciences 
Halifax, NS
February 13 - 17, 2006   
 
Scientific Coordinator: Dr. Brian Fristensky, University of Manitoba
 
Creating and managing a bioinformatics system for a lab, institute, or
university presents a host of problems. While there are an enormous number
of software tools, databases and hardware choices, integrating these into a
coherent, reliable and easy-to-use system is difficult to do well. This
course will guide participants through the steps needed to install and
tailor a system to the needs of the local user community, whether a single
research lab or a campus or company-wide system.


Topics include (tentative): 


*	First steps: Designing a  hardware, software, web and database
	infrastructure for your lab 

*	Make it so: Any user can do anything from anywhere (BIRCH
	  <http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/%7Epsgendb/> )
	  installing and organizing software; strategies for keeping system
	  administration simple; making programs easy to find and use; care and
	  feeding of your user base 

*	Data pipelines: Everything is a web service 
	  BioMOBY <http://www.biomoby.org/>
	  Using web services; Creating web services; creating and modifying data
	  pipelines in Taverna <http://taverna.sourceforge.net/>  

*	Making databases and applications web-accessible
	 (Canadian Bioinformatics Help Desk)
	  <http://www.gchelpdesk.ualberta.ca/> 
	  Design of application web pages; making databases web-accessible; making
	  software downloadable 

*	Genome annotation pipelines (MAGPIE <http://magpie.ucalgary.ca/> ,
	  BLUEJAY <http://bluejay.ucalgary.ca/> )
	  Implementing MAGPIE; populating the database; gene annotation 

*	High Performance Computing 
	  Computing grids; computing clusters


Prerequisites: Previous experience in Unix and Perl, or prior attendance at
the Genome Canada Applied Computational Genomics Course.

International attendees welcome.
