    COG-Train https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/cog-train COG-Train is an international educational initiative providing open-access learning in SARS-CoV-2 genomics. It aims to facilitate an increase in global genome sequencing and analysis capacity, reduce sequencing inequality and enhance pathogen surveillance. The programme’s training courses and development are built around our core concept of partnering with international researchers, public health experts and surveillance networks and providing open-access FREE training for all. COG-Train is funded by Wellcome Trust and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and led jointly by COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) consortium and Wellcome Connecting Science (WCS). Whole Viral Genome sequencing is an essential tool to identify and track the emergence and spread of SARS-CoV-2 variants as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. Sequence data informs public health interventions and the further development of diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. There is inequity of access to pathogen sequencing worldwide, and COG-Train is committed to contributing towards efforts that close this gap. By building global partnerships with sequencing networks and scientists around the world, we hope to build a truly inclusive training programme that shares the many challenges faced in sequencing efforts, as well as highlighting the numerous success stories, and facilitating knowledge sharing. Outputs include a series of massive online, open-access courses on all aspects of SARS-CoV-2 sequencing based on WCS’s successful use of the FutureLearn platform, as well as week-long intensive virtual training courses, short expert workshops and concurrent distributed Classrooms, the latter of which utilises blended training. The distributed classroom model will be used to increase reach and impact of the learning materials, with training being delivered simultaneously in multiple classrooms across many countries. The training programme includes train-the-trainer components to help further build capacity in-country, rather than rely on a one-hit train and leave model. The COG-Train educational programme builds on the COG-UK values of data sharing, open collaboration, value for money, inclusivity and the prioritisation of public health impact. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/644/original/COG-Train_Logo.png?1657104279

    University of Leicester Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Analysis Support Hub (BBASH) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/university-of-leicester-bioinformatics-and-biostatistics-analysis-support-hub-bbash The ongoing development of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies has meant that vast amounts of sequencing data is being produced, with researchers increasingly wanting the capability and knowledge to analyse their own data. Over the past 3 years BBASH has developed a number of 1, 2 and 3 day hands-on, NGS analysis workshops designed specificially to meet the needs of laboratory based researchers with little or no experience of NGS data analysis and command line tools. The workshops are held at the University of Leicester's state of the art College Court Conference Centre and consist of introductory presentations followed by practical sessions where delegates will gain hands-on experience of analysing and interpreting real data. The BBASH trainers are University of Leicester bioinformaticians or researchers with many years experience in bioinformatics and bioinformatics training, having delivered many workshops across the UK and Europe. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/086/original/BBASHlogo.png?1509536575
