The training which was co-hosted by EUPathDB and the EANBiT project brought together 60 participants from 15 countries.
The trainings objectives were:
- 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
- Have participants generate hypotheses and get practice testing them in silico using data in the above-mentioned resources
- Expose participants to ideas and terminology outside their fields (bioinformatics, entomology, epidemiology, medicine, molecular/cellular biology)
- Encourage networking across the multiple fields mentioned above
