Biocuration Q&A webinar (online) – EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

This Q&A webinar will provide an opportunity for anyone who has completed the e-learning biocuration collection to ask questions to a panel of biocurators


The International Biocuration Conference is a unique event for curators and developers of biological databases to discuss their work, promote collaborations, and foster a sense of community in this very active and growing area of research

Post-Covid we aim to hold the ISB conference in North/South America, Australia/Asia or Europe on a rotating basis.

Practical Biocuration – EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK

  • This three-day course, onsite at EMBL-EBI, will introduce concepts vital to biocuration, including metadata and ontologies, the role of identifiers, and extracting data from literature. Participants will have the opportunity to use skills learnt in a real-life practical biocuration exercise during a short group project.
  • Registration is first come, first served. More information here.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Biocuration Conference, which was to be held in India, will hopefully be held in 2024.
