From drug discovery to enzymes that degrade plastics, this promises to speed up and fundamentally change the way that protein structures are used in biological research.  Beyond the hype, what does this mean for structural biology as a field (and as a career)? Dr Craig Morton, Drug Discovery Lead at the CSIRO, is an early adopter of AlphaFold and has decades of expertise in protein structure / function, protein modelling, protein – ligand interactions and computational small molecule drug discovery, with particular interest in anti-infective agents for the treatment of bacterial and viral diseases. Craig joins this webinar to share his perspective on the implications of AlphaFold for science and structural biology. He will give an overview of how AlphaFold works, ways to access AlphaFold, and some examples of how it can be used for protein structure/function analysis.

WORKSHOP: R: fundamental skills for biologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-r-fundamental-skills-for-biologists-81aa00db-63ad-4962-a7ac-b885bf9f676b This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘R: fundamental skills for biologists’. This workshop took place over four, three-hour sessions on 1, 8, 15 and 22 June 2022.   Event description Biologists need data analysis skills to be able to interpret, visualise and communicate their research results. While Excel can cover some data analysis needs, there is a better choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.  R is a free, open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis, visualisation and more. The large variety of R packages available for analysing biological data make it a robust and flexible option for data of all shapes and sizes.  Getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics and programming. In this workshop we will equip you with the foundations for getting the most out of R and RStudio, an interactive way of structuring and keeping track of your work in R. Using biological data from a model of influenza infection, you will learn how to efficiently and reproducibly organise, read, wrangle, analyse, visualise and generate reports from your data in R. Topics covered in this workshop include: Spreadsheets, organising data and first steps with R Manipulating and analysing data with dplyr Data visualisation Summarized experiments and getting started with Bioconductor   This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Saskia Freytag from WEHI  with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.

WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-refining-genome-annotations-with-apollo-d8f95fb3-7dc4-40e0-87d5-e7a4b2ceaf16 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons  workshop ‘Refining genome annotations with Apollo’. This workshop took place on 17 November 2021. Workshop description  Genome annotation is crucial to defining the function of genomic sequences. This process typically involves a round of automated annotation followed by manual curation. Manual curation allows you to visualise your annotations so you can understand what your organism looks like, and then to manually refine these annotations along with any additional data you might have. This process is typically performed collaboratively as part of a team effort. Apollo is a popular tool for facilitating real-time collaborative, manual curation and genome annotation editing. In this workshop we will learn how to use Apollo to refine genome annotations using example data from an E. coli strain. We’ll focus on the basics like getting data into Apollo, viewing evidence tracks, editing and adding structural and functional annotation, visualising the results and collaborating on genome annotations. This workshop made use of a training instance of  the new Australian Apollo Service. This service enables Australian-based research groups and consortia to access Apollo and host genome assembly and supporting evidence files for free. This service has been made possible by The Australian BioCommons and partners at QCIF and Pawsey. To learn more about the Australian Apollo Service you can watch the Australian Apollo Launch Webinar. This workshop was presented by the Australian BioCommons and Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) . The Australian Apollo Service is operated by QCIF and underpinned by computational resources provided by the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre and receives NCRIS funding through Bioplatforms Australia and the Australian Research Data Commons as well as Queensland Government RICF funding.

These approaches combine the strengths of short (Illumina) and long (PacBio or Nanopore) read technologies, resulting in improved assembly quality. In this workshop we will learn how to create and assess genome assemblies from Illumina and Nanopore reads using data from a Bacillus Subtilis strain. We will demonstrate two hybrid-assembly methods using the tools Flye, Pilon, and Unicycler to perform assembly and subsequent error correction. You will learn how to visualise input read sets and the assemblies produced at each stage and assess the quality of the final assembly. All analyses will be performed using Galaxy Australia, an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.

WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-refining-genome-annotations-with-apollo This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons  workshop ‘Refining genome annotations with Apollo’. This workshop took place on 17 November 2021. **Workshop description** Genome annotation is crucial to defining the function of genomic sequences. This process typically involves a round of automated annotation followed by manual curation. Manual curation allows you to visualise your annotations so you can understand what your organism looks like, and then to manually refine these annotations along with any additional data you might have. This process is typically performed collaboratively as part of a team effort. Apollo is a popular tool for facilitating real-time collaborative, manual curation and genome annotation editing. In this workshop we will learn how to use Apollo to refine genome annotations using example data from an E. coli strain. We’ll focus on the basics like getting data into Apollo, viewing evidence tracks, editing and adding structural and functional annotation, visualising the results and collaborating on genome annotations. This workshop made use of a training instance of  the new Australian Apollo Service. This service enables Australian-based research groups and consortia to access Apollo and host genome assembly and supporting evidence files for free. This service has been made possible by The Australian BioCommons and partners at QCIF and Pawsey. To learn more about the Australian Apollo Service you can watch the Australian Apollo Launch Webinar. This workshop was presented by the Australian BioCommons and Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) . The Australian Apollo Service is operated by QCIF and underpinned by computational resources provided by the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre and receives NCRIS funding through Bioplatforms Australia and the Australian Research Data Commons as well as Queensland Government RICF funding.

WORKSHOP: Hybrid de novo genome assembly https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-hybrid-de-novo-genome-assembly This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘Hybrid de novo genome assembly’. This workshop took place on 7 October 2021. **Workshop description** It’s now easier than ever to assemble new reference genomes thanks to hybrid genome assembly approaches which enable research on organisms for which reference genomes were not previously available. These approaches combine the strengths of short (Illumina) and long (PacBio or Nanopore) read technologies, resulting in improved assembly quality. In this workshop we will learn how to create and assess genome assemblies from Illumina and Nanopore reads using data from a Bacillus Subtilis strain. We will demonstrate two hybrid-assembly methods using the tools Flye, Pilon, and Unicycler to perform assembly and subsequent error correction. You will learn how to visualise input read sets and the assemblies produced at each stage and assess the quality of the final assembly. All analyses will be performed using Galaxy Australia, an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.

Accelerating skills development in Data science and AI at scale https://dresa.org.au/materials/accelerating-skills-development-in-data-science-and-ai-at-scale At the Monash Data Science and AI  platform, we believe that upskilling our research community and building a workforce with data science skills are key to accelerating the application of data science in research. To achieve this, we create and leverage new and existing training capabilities within and outside Monash University. In this talk, we will discuss the principles and purpose of establishing collaborative models to accelerate skills development at scale. We will talk about our approach to identifying gaps in the existing skills and training available in data science, key areas of interest as identified by the research community and various sources of training available in the marketplace. We will provide insights into the collaborations we currently have and intend to develop in the future within the university and also nationally. The talk will also cover our approach as outlined below •        Combined survey of gaps in skills and trainings for Data science and AI •        Provide seats to partners •        Share associate instructors/helpers/volunteers •        Develop combined training materials •        Publish a repository of open source trainings •        Train the trainer activities •        Establish a network of volunteers to deliver trainings at their local regions Industry plays a significant role in making some invaluable training available to the research community either through self learning platforms like AWS Machine Learning University or Instructor led courses like NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute. We will discuss how we leverage our partnerships with Industry to bring these trainings to our research community. Finally, we will discuss how we map our training to the ARDC skills roadmap and how the ARDC platforms project “Environments to accelerate Machine Learning based Discovery” has enabled collaboration between Monash University and University of Queensland to develop and deliver training together. contact@ardc.edu.au AI, machine learning, eresearch skills, training, train the trainer, volunteer instructors, training partnerships, training material
