In order to support computational work during COVID-19 times, members of EMBL's bio-computational community have come together and volunteered to provide assistance on a wide range of topics.
If you need help with any of the listed topics, reach out to our team of supporters on their preferred communication channel (e-mail if not specified).
Check also the online events calendar for drop-in times (currently 1-2 hours a week) and connection details.
If you want to join the team of helpers, contact Renato Alves or Toby Hodges via email and mention the topics you'd like to provide help on .
You will also find some of us on the EMBL chat and EMBL GitLab decorated with 🌱 to indicate the grassroot consultant status.
