The Gibson Team is happy to announce the virtual course: "Pathogen research through VEuPathDB resources".
This course will consist of two morning sessions on 11th – 12th October, 9:30 – 12:30 CEST over Zoom.

Course description

The aim of the course is to make people familiar with VEuPathDB resources (, a suite of dedicated databases to collect and provide information and tools to assist research on Eukaryotic pathogens, their vectors, and hosts. Pathogens in the suite include Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Trypanosomes, Leishmania and more.

In this course you will learn how to:

  • Explore their different databases
  • Use their genome and protein browsers
  • Retrieve orthologous sequences
  • Create specialised search strategies and experimental data queries

If you have any doubt or question please get in touch with Jesús Alvarado Valverde or Renato Alves.

To attend, please register below by providing your identification and a few details about your research interest or focus.
You will receive an email confirming your registration. Course schedule and connection details will be sent at a later stage.


This Bio-IT workshop is sponsored by de.NBI, the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure in collaboration with the Gibson Team.
