Although it’s already posted in our news feed, I just wanted to add a reminder about our upcoming webinar on GenoCAD: open-source computer-assisted design software for synthetic biology. You can see the time and registration details here:
If you want to download the slides beforehand (so you don’t have to write everything down), you can access the slides and slide handouts for the Introduction here: www.openhelix.com/GenoCAD
But in case you can’t make it for schedule reasons, you can still access the same materials from our web site on our GenoCAD suite pages. You can watch the video, download slides and handouts, and also try out the accompanying exercises.
There’s also a second tutorial with more advanced topics, and you can watch that video or access associated training materials for that version too: www.openhelix.com/genoCAD2
We’ll also leave this post open for questions from the webinar–if we don’t have time to get to the issues we’ll tackle them here. Or if you go off and try some things yourself, and come up with something else you want to know or get stuck, we’ll get you the answers or guidance.
If you are the type to want some publications to read to better understand the resource, be sure to check out the GenoCAD team’s page with many references that will help you to understand the foundations of the development and features, and their directions going forward.
