[February 2017] We are happy to announce our first
Software Carpentry workshop
in Freiburg in Freiburg on 9.-10.3.2017! The workshop is for beginners and
will be about an introduction to UNIX (and Bash) in order to master Git
(a version control system); and the programming language Python. Please contact
if you are interested or have any questions.
[January 2017] The Galaxy team has set up
bioinformatics infrastructure and services to support academics from all over Europe,
free of charge and open access. The infrastructure provides computing power
for researchers to analyse very large data sets, which are very common in modern
molecular biology. This High-Performance Computing Center was
initiated in 2015 and is funded by the Bundesmisterium für Bildung und
Forschung (BMBF) with around 5.8 Million euro. It was first set up for use only
within Germany but now has been extended to all of Europe. See the following press release
and in German. Please contact
Björn Grüning if you are interested.
[February 2016] E-learning-Förderpreis (E-learning development grant).
Our postdoc, Martin Mann, recently won a prize of 5000 EUR to convert our current bioinformatics courses for integration into the E-learning
ILIAS of the University of Freiburg.
Martin's vision is to change the current norm of frontal lectures where students listen to the lecturer
for 90 minutes and then spend time afterwards learning the lecture content into online self-learning modules that
are subsequently discussed in detail together with the lecturer at the regular meetings. He already started in SS2015
with RNA bioinformatics and other courses are sure to follow.
Abwehrsystem automatisch aufgeschlüsselt (press release in German).
Together with many leading scientists researching the CRISPR-Cas immune systems in prokaryotes, we have published
an updated review on the
classification of these systems in Nature Reviews Microbiology. For the first time we are able to automatically
assign these systems to the current classification model with a near-perfect accuracy.
