GUIDELINES FOR SPEAKERS

Preparing your workshop

  1. Workshop slots are typically 4 hours, this should include theoretical introduction (often 30 min will be more than enough) and practical exercises (here the more the better;) ). 
  2. Each student will have a laptop with Ubuntu installed. Please, prepare your exercises so they can run even on older laptops in reasonable amount of time ie for de novo assembly workshop I'm using 100Kb region of one chromosome. 
  3. Please, add the software you will need in your workshop to this list. We'll cover installation of all dependencies on Day 0. 
  4. Let us know, if you need some help during your workshop.

Quick Edit: In-place editing of content

Drupal offers Quick Edit, meaning you can edit any content and see it's effect in the current browser window. I strongly recommend using it, as it's very handy. You can access it by clicking small pencil symbol in the top right corner of any content and selecting `Quick edit`.
