Default COURSE: Building an In-house Bioinformatics System

Genome Prairie


Building an In-house Bioinformatics System


NRC Institute for Marine Biosciences
Halifax, NS
February 13 - 17, 2006

Scientific Coordinator: Dr. Brian Fristensky, University of Manitoba

Creating and managing a bioinformatics system for a lab, institute, or
university presents a host of problems. While there are an enormous number
of software tools, databases and hardware choices, integrating these into a
coherent, reliable and easy-to-use system is difficult to do well. This
course will guide participants through the steps needed to install and
tailor a system to the needs of the local user community, whether a single
research lab or a campus or company-wide system.

Topics include (tentative):

* First steps: Designing a hardware, software, web and database
infrastructure for your lab

* Make it so: Any user can do anything from anywhere (BIRCH
<http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/%7Epsgendb/> )
installing and organizing software; strategies for keeping system
administration simple; making programs easy to find and use; care and
feeding of your user base

* Data pipelines: Everything is a web service
BioMOBY <http://www.biomoby.org/>
Using web services; Creating web services; creating and modifying data
pipelines in Taverna <http://taverna.sourceforge.net/>

* Making databases and applications web-accessible
(Canadian Bioinformatics Help Desk)
Design of application web pages; making databases web-accessible; making
software downloadable

* Genome annotation pipelines (MAGPIE <http://magpie.ucalgary.ca/> ,
BLUEJAY <http://bluejay.ucalgary.ca/> )
Implementing MAGPIE; populating the database; gene annotation

* High Performance Computing
Computing grids; computing clusters

Prerequisites: Previous experience in Unix and Perl, or prior attendance at
the Genome Canada Applied Computational Genomics Course.

International attendees welcome.
