The training which was co-hosted by EUPathDB and the EANBiT project brought together 60 participants from 15 countries.

The trainings objectives were:

  1. Familiarize participants with EuPathDB genomic resources, ClinEpiDB resources, and VectorBase resources, including what types of data are available in each database and what tools are available to interrogate that data
  2. Have participants generate hypotheses and get practice testing them in silico using data in the above-mentioned resources
  3. Expose participants to ideas and terminology outside their fields (bioinformatics, entomology, epidemiology, medicine, molecular/cellular biology)
  4. Encourage networking across the multiple fields mentioned above
