2015 Bioinformatics Workshop for Helminth Genomics class materials now available to all!

The course handout for the Bioinformatics Workshop for Helminth Genomics that was held in Sept. 2015 is now freely available to any who are interested. It contains step by step tutorials for commonly used bioinformatics procedures and should prove useful for researchers wanting to explore the computational side of nematology
