WEBINAR: AlphaFold: what's in it for me? https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-alphafold-what-s-in-it-for-me-4d1ea222-4240-4b68-b9ae-7769ac664ee0 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘WEBINAR: AlphaFold: what’s in it for me?’. 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.

Successful data training stories from NCI https://dresa.org.au/materials/successful-data-training-stories-from-nci-33f110e3-0c06-492e-9cc5-fa0f886ca1b8 NCI Australia manages a multi-petabyte sized data repository, collocated with its HPC systems and data services, which allows high performance access to many scientific research datasets across many earth science domains. An important aspect is to provide training materials that proactively engages with the research community to improve their understanding of the data available, and to share knowledge and best practices in the use of tools and other software. We have developed multiple levels of training modules (introductory, intermediate and advanced) to cater for users with different levels of experience and interest. We have also tailored courses for each scientific domain, so that the use-cases and software will be most relevant to their interests and needs. For our training, we combine brief lectures followed by hands-on training examples on how to use datasets, using working examples of well-known tools and software that people can use as a template and modify to fit their needs. For example, we take representative use-cases from some scientific activities, from our collaborations and from user support issues, and convert to Jupyter notebook examples so that people can repeat the workfIow and reproduce the results. We also use the training as an opportunity to raise awareness of growing issues in resource management. Some examples include a familiarity of the FAIR data principles, licensing, citation, data management and trusted digital repositories. This approach to both our online training materials and workshops has been well-received by PhD students, early careers, and cross disciplinary users. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, HPC training, domain-specific training, reproducible workflows, training material

The strong focus on building community to complement training, has fostered an environment of learning, networking and sharing of expertise. Hear what the Graduate research students have to say about the value of skills training and how it has impacted their research; how the community has enabled them to network with a broad range of researchers and affiliate partner groups they would not ordinarily be in contact with; how their research journey has been enhanced by working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, as well as sharpening their teaching skills. The rapid refocus from face - face to online delivery, as a result of the pandemic, highlights the importance of the multi-faceted online approach including workshops, drop-in sessions, SLACK chat and online learning resources. As a result of the shift to online, the range of strategic external partner/affiliate groups has extended and demand for workshops and drop-ins has increased.  Learn how the instructors have altered their pedagogical approach to engage workshop and drop-in participants; how they have overcome some of the challenges of facilitating in an online environment; and how this is preparing them to become part of a digitally skilled workforce. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, data skills, online learning, pedagogy, train the trainer, digitally skilled workforce, training material

As a rule of thumb, one can expect to spend 15-20 hours of development time per hour of delivery time. Even once the main work is done, there are still ongoing maintenance demands, from correcting the inevitable typos and adapting to software version updates, to major rewrites as best practice techniques evolve. Few Australians training organisations have a funding mandate for developing training material for general use. Instead most of us build training for our own communities in response to demand from those communities, allocating our limited resources to the areas of perceived highest demand. Notwithstanding this local focus, most training organisations operate in similar research environments with similar community demands, so there are real opportunities for benefit from collaboration between those organisations. In this session we will discuss how such collaboration could occur and whether a standardised national agreement around sharing of training material is an achievable outcome. This session will not discuss co-delivery opportunities, institution-specific content such as HPC training and data management, or consolidation of existing similar workshops into a single course. These are important topics, but we don’t have time to do them justice today. contact@ardc.edu.au training material, training, sharing guidelines, sharing agreements

eResearch Services and Capabilities https://dresa.org.au/materials/eresearch-services-and-capabilities-a30dc7d7-2e38-42ee-979d-17e41c878768 Over the last two years, the Federation for the Advancement of Victorian eResearch (FAVeR) has been working towards some understanding of the eResearch roles space, leading to the establishment of a project called 'Advancing the professionalisation of our eResearch workforce'. The goal of this project is to provide a common understanding of the eResearch capabilities, from which appropriate skill sets can be derived for positions or teams. In this presentation we will share an overview of the project, including: FAVeR and the APeRW Working Group, the eResearch Value Proposition and Chain, draft eResearch Services, and example capabilities. In addition, we will share the early results of a planned community consultation, which has been proposed as a ‘Birds of a Feather’ session at eResearch Australasia 2020. This consultation aims to elicit feedback, from the broader eResearch community, on the following questions: ● Are there other aspects of eResearch Services? What falls outside the scope of the service and capabilities descriptions? ● Is there a priority between eResearch Services? e.g. Mandatory, optional, and dependencies. What’s required when for deploying an e/Digital Research support unit. What’s the priority order and what’s the minimum required? ● Is there a distinction between general and specialised capabilities? e.g. Are there cross service eResearch capabilities. This presentation will be of interest primarily to Decision-makers and managers and Digitally focussed research support professionals. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, digitally skilled workforce, eresearch services, capabilities, training material

Skills training & materials - developing sharing guidelines and agreements

Skills training & materials - developing sharing guidelines and agreements https://dresa.org.au/materials/skills-training-materials-developing-sharing-guidelines-and-agreements Anyone who has developed training content - specifically hands-on, short format, data science training - will know that it is expensive and time consuming. As a rule of thumb, one can expect to spend 15-20 hours of development time per hour of delivery time. Even once the main work is done, there are still ongoing maintenance demands, from correcting the inevitable typos and adapting to software version updates, to major rewrites as best practice techniques evolve. Few Australians training organisations have a funding mandate for developing training material for general use. Instead most of us build training for our own communities in response to demand from those communities, allocating our limited resources to the areas of perceived highest demand. Notwithstanding this local focus, most training organisations operate in similar research environments with similar community demands, so there are real opportunities for benefit from collaboration between those organisations. In this session we will discuss how such collaboration could occur and whether a standardised national agreement around sharing of training material is an achievable outcome. This session will not discuss co-delivery opportunities, institution-specific content such as HPC training and data management, or consolidation of existing similar workshops into a single course. These are important topics, but we don’t have time to do them justice today. contact@ardc.edu.au training material, training, sharing guidelines, sharing agreements

eResearch Services and Capabilities https://dresa.org.au/materials/eresearch-services-and-capabilities Over the last two years, the Federation for the Advancement of Victorian eResearch (FAVeR) has been working towards some understanding of the eResearch roles space, leading to the establishment of a project called 'Advancing the professionalisation of our eResearch workforce'. The goal of this project is to provide a common understanding of the eResearch capabilities, from which appropriate skill sets can be derived for positions or teams. In this presentation we will share an overview of the project, including: FAVeR and the APeRW Working Group, the eResearch Value Proposition and Chain, draft eResearch Services, and example capabilities. In addition, we will share the early results of a planned community consultation, which has been proposed as a ‘Birds of a Feather’ session at eResearch Australasia 2020. This consultation aims to elicit feedback, from the broader eResearch community, on the following questions: ● Are there other aspects of eResearch Services? What falls outside the scope of the service and capabilities descriptions? ● Is there a priority between eResearch Services? e.g. Mandatory, optional, and dependencies. What’s required when for deploying an e/Digital Research support unit. What’s the priority order and what’s the minimum required? ● Is there a distinction between general and specialised capabilities? e.g. Are there cross service eResearch capabilities. This presentation will be of interest primarily to Decision-makers and managers and Digitally focussed research support professionals. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, digitally skilled workforce, eresearch services, capabilities, training material
