If you are interested in finding out more about the culture of biosafety, biosecurity, and responsible conduct, this guide is for you. A U.S. interagency Working Group was established in 2015 to implement the recommendation of the Federal Experts Security Advisory Panel to "create and strengthen a culture that emphasizes biosafety, laboratory biosecurity, and responsible conduct in the life sciences...
Next generation sequencing technologies are producing enormous amount of sequencing data. Analyzing this massive amount of data requires the ability to use the sophisticated tools and techniques in the Unix platform. This course will introduce the participants to the skills needed to get started with their NGS data analysis journey.
A new online training program developed by researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina helps keep health care workers safe when treating patients with Ebola.
This report presents a culture-based approach to the preparedness goals laid out in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA’s) 2018–2022 Strategic Plan. It lays out four Guiding Principles for building Cultures of Preparedness, followed by practical strategies and examples that demonstrate successful outcomes in real-world settings.
This National Ebola Training and Education Center course discusses the assessment, management, and placement of persons suspected to have Ebola and Other Special Pathogens.
.This course facilitates learners to describe pathogen-related factors that may warrant treatment in a biocontainment unit and to distinguish between concepts of infectious, communicable, and hazardous as they relate to Ebola and other special pathogens of concern. Participants will also be able to describe the clinical presentation of selected special pathogens from the two broad categories: viral hemorrhagic fevers and the highly pathogenic respiratory viruses.
This course aims to provide a hands-on introduction to bioinformatics for next generation sequencing and to equip participants with the essential informatics skills and knowledge required to begin analysing next generation sequencing data and carry out some of the most common types of analysis.
Participants will create and access cloud instances (renting and using a windows or linux machine), set security, configure storage, create snapshots, create images, up or down scaling the resources, monitoring resources, billing and perform routine tasks.
The participants will be provided with end-to-end hands-on training, along with introduction tobasic concepts, in using popular tools and techniques for sequence analysis, structure analysis,function prediction, biological database searching, “omics” data analysis, pathway analysis, datavisualization, data curation and integration, linux, R, perl and scripting basics.rticipants should be comfortable with basic computer skills.
