Just before the lockdown imposed by the COVID-19 pandemics we hosted a fantastic workshop co-organized with LifeWatch ERIC.
36 experts from 11 countries have exchanged about Online Bioinformatic Platforms to support Metabarcoding and Metagenomics research and applications for 3 days at CIBIO-In-BIO facilities in Vairão.
The workshop explored the architecture and function of an online bioinformatics platform capable to address as many needs of the scientific community as possible. The outcome of the three days was a plan with well-identified next steps towards the co-construction of the bioinformatic platform.
