The ANR will officially start Monday May 11th. One day before this exciting event, the organizing committee offers you an interesting workshop at the ANR venue, called the ‘Beurs van Berlage’, to kickstart your ANR2020 experience. A special ‘R2-Introduction workshop’ will be held Sunday the 10th of May at the ANR venue, the same day when ANR registration opens.
For those who are not yet familiar with the R2-platform and for those who want to learn more about R2, this workshop will be an excellent way to start the ANR2020 in Amsterdam. The R2 platform (http://r2.amc.nl) has its origins in the Neuroblastoma research field. The platform contains a large collection of publicly available neuroblastoma data, covering all types of omic data such as expression, methylation and even WGS data. R2 is a free, publicly accessible web-based genomics analysis and visualization platform allowing biomedical researchers, without bioinformatics training, to integrate clinical and genomics data. The R2 platform serves over 2.000.000 pages a year and has been cited in PubMed listed manuscripts over 1200 times, including high impact journals such as Nature and Cell.
This special workshop will cover the essentials of working with omics data in R2 from the neuroblastoma perspective and will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to use this versatile platform. Every participant will receive a printed tutorial book. The workshop will be offered free of charge. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. An ANR registration is required and you will have to bring your own laptop to the workshop.
We are looking forward to interact with you and show you the ease of working with R2!
