EMBL-ABR

EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) is a distributed national research infrastructure providing bioinformatics support to life science researchers in Australia.
EMBL-ABR aims to:

  1. increase Australia’s capacity to collect, integrate, analyse, exploit, share and archive the large heterogeneous data sets now part of modern life sciences research
  2. contribute to the development of and provide training in data, tools and platforms to enable Australia’s life science researchers to undertake research in the age of big data
  3. showcase Australian research and datasets at an international level
  4. enable engagement in international programs that create, deploy and develop best practice approaches to data management, software tools and methods, computational platforms and bioinformatics services.

EMBL-ABR is structured as a hub/nodes model, with the Hub located at Melbourne Bioinformatics (formerly VLSCI), University of Melbourne. EMBL-ABR is also currently exploring engagement with the European infrastructure for biological information, ELIXIR, and other relevant international efforts.

One of EMBL-ABR Key areas is TRAINING, and as such we are involved in diverse projects relevant for bioinformatics training in Australia, with a current focus on Open Science and Bioinformatics.

EMBL-ABR Best Practice workshop series: the data life-cycle

During the interactive workshops, participants were able to take their own data through the best-practice data life cycle following open data and FAIR principles. We also identified specific Australian needs in the research domains of plants, animals, microbes and health data that will help...

EMBL-ABR/ELIXIR/CyVerse workshop: Registries in Bioinformatics

The workshop will provide a forum to discuss pros and cons as well as general best practices when it comes to registries. It will also offer a hands on session on submission (content upload), dissemination (content pull) and visualisation. The final session will be a writing activity: based on...

EMBL-ABR workshop on Open Source and Software Development Best Practice

articipants will reflect together on their own experiences and discuss what are the challenges, mechanisms and recognition systems are for those who get involved in open source. We would like to use this also as an opportunity to further define what would be the best practice model in terms of...

Researcher Training Day for Life Scientists_ Rad-seq with Stacks in Galaxy

This session demonstrated how to use Stacks tools wrapped in Galaxy to process your RAD-seq (Restriction-site Associated DNA sequencing) data for population genomics. We started with raw sequencing reads and take them through quality-control, and de novo assembly steps. We then demonstrated the...

What is GenomeSpace?

GenomeSpace does not perform any analyses itself; these are done within the member tools wherever they live – desktop, Web service, cloud, in-house server, etc. Rather, GenomeSpace provides tool selection and launch capabilities, and acts as a data highway automatically reformatting data as...

Galaxy workflows

The purpose of this section is to get you to log in to the server.. For this workshop, you can use a Galaxy server that you have created by following the steps outlined in: Launch a GVL Galaxy Instance or you can use the public Galaxy-tut.
Then you will be shown two different methods to create a...
