Bioinformatics Workshop for Helminth Genomics (2015)

Thank you to everyone that attended and/or otherwise supported the Bioinformatics Workshop for Helminth Genomics (2015)! We hope the class proves useful to those who where there!

       Class participants and organizers                                                                         A busy classroom !
New Data & Tools
Proteomics data now hosted for 7 species! is now hosting various proteomics data & publication review for 7 nematode species: Brugia malayi, Cooperia oncophora, Dirofilaria immitis, Nippostrongylus brasiliensis, Oesophagostomum dentatum, Onchocerca volvulus and Strongyloides ratti. The information is hosted within the appropriate species block in our Data downloads page!
