For 14 years the UCSC Genome Browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu) has been providing a visual display for genomic data from human and other organisms, now numbering more than 80. Serving nearly 200,000 different users monthly, the Browser has grown to be a collection of bioinformatics tools useful for many applications in biomedical research.
Dr. Robert Kuhn, Associate Director of the UCSC Genome Browser, will be visiting Australia this September, and will deliver a series of seminars and workshops around the country on the use and applications of the Browser.
The seminar sessions are free and no registration is required - just turn up. Workshop places are limited, please register at http://www.qfab.org/event/ucsc-genome-browser-roadshow-2014/

Dr Kuhn will be available for meetings with individual researchers and groups on the day after the workshop sessions. Please contact Mark Crowe at QFAB (firstname.lastname@example.org / 07 3346 2095) If you would like to organise a time to speak with him.
