The Ensembl Outreach team is looking into the possibility to give browser and/or API workshops in the US West and Midwest in 2012. For academic institutions these workshops would be free of charge, but we would expect hosts to reimburse our travel, accomodation and subsistence expenses. Browser workshops are typically one day, API workshops can be one or more days. The ideal group size is around 20 participants. If you are potentially interested to host a workshop or want more information, please contact Bert Overduin.
