The ABiMS platform provides training services with a threefold goal :
- teach users to familiarize themselves with components of the e-infrastructure that they will need to carry out computational aspects of their scientific projects : the Linux Operating System, the Sun Grid Engine cluster execution environment,
- help users to become proficient with specific software packages : the Galaxy platform, the R programming language.
- enable users to perform analyses of their data by training them in statistical analysis methods, including those related to RNA-Seq.
Members of the ABiMS team also offer training sessions customized for specific communities (Metabolomics) or projects (summer schools).
The platform is integrated in the French National Infrastructure for Bioinformatics IFB (Institut Français de Bio-informatique), whose training modules are open to all participants.
