WEBINAR: Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-where-to-go-when-your-bioinformatics-outgrows-your-compute-7a5a0ff8-8f4f-4fd0-af20-a88d515a6554 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute’. This webinar took place on 19 August 2021. Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and "Just getting it to work" are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs as an Australian researcher, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey.  We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers.  This webinar was jointly organised with the Sydney Informatics Hub at the University of Sydney.

This webinar took place on 18 April 2023. Event description  AlphaFold has taken the scientific world by storm with the ability to accurately predict the structure of any protein in minutes using artificial intelligence (AI). 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.

This webinar took place on 4 November 2022. Event description  Scientists and educators working in the life sciences must continuously acquire new knowledge and skills to stay up-to-date with the latest methods, technologies and research. Short-format training, such as webinars, workshops and bootcamps, are popular ways of quickly learning about new topics and gaining new skills. As trainers and educators, how can we ensure that short-format training is effective and inclusive for all? How can we ensure that our learners are equipped to continue learning and applying their new skills once they return to their day jobs? And how can we do this in a way that is scalable and sustainable? The Bicycle Principles assemble education theory and community experience into a framework for improving short-format training so that it is effective, inclusive and scalable. Over 30 international experts, including colleagues from the Australian BioCommons, Melbourne Genomics and other Australian and New Zealand organisations, helped develop the principles and an associated set of recommendations. Jason Williams, Assistant Director, DNA Learning Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory - a leading genomics and bioinformatics educator and project lead, joins us to discuss the Principles and how they can be applied to achieve scalable and sustainable training in a range of Australian settings.

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

As part of a training program in machine learning, visualisation, and computing tools, we have established a series of over 20 workshops over the year where either Monash or QCIF hosts the event for some 20-40 of their researchers and students, while some 5 places are offered to participants from the other institution. In the longer term we aim to share material developed at one institution and have trainers present it at the other. In this talk we will describe the many benefits we have found to this approach including access to a wider range of expertise in several rapidly developing fields, upskilling of trainers, faster identification of emerging training needs, and peer learning for trainers. contact@ardc.edu.au data skills, training partnerships, data science, AI, training material
