Getting Genetics Done: Shameless plug – I write a blog highlighting literature of interest, new tools, and occasionally tutorials in genetics, statistics, and bioinformatics. I recently wrote this post about how to stay current in bioinformatics & genomics.Titus Brown's list of bioinformatics courses: Includes a few others not listed here (also see the comments).GMOD Training and Outreach: GMOD is the Generic Model Organism Database project, a collection of open source software tools for creating and managing genome-scale biological databases. This page links out to tutorials on GMOD Components such as Apollo, BioMart, Galaxy, GBrowse, MAKER, and others.Seqanswers.com: A discussion forum for anything related to Bioinformatics, including Q&A, paper discussions, new software announcements, protocols, and more.Biostars.org: Similar to SEQanswers, but more strictly a Q&A site.BioConductor Mailing list: A very active mailing list for getting help with Bioconductor packages. Make sure you do some Google searching yourself first before posting to this list.Bioconductor Events: List of upcoming and prior Bioconductor training and events worldwide.Learn Galaxy: Screencasts and tutorials for learning to use Galaxy.Galaxy Event Horizon: Worldwide Galaxy-related events (workshops, training, user meetings) are listed here.Galaxy RNA-Seq Exercise: Run through a small RNA-seq study from start to finish using Galaxy.Rafael Irizarry's Youtube Channel: Several statistics and bioinformatics video lectures.PLoS Comp Bio Online Bioinformatics Curriculum: A perspective paper by David B Searls outlining a series of free online learning initiatives for beginning to advanced training in biology, biochemistry, genetics, computational biology, genomics, math, statistics, computer science, programming, web development, databases, parallel computing, image processing, AI, NLP, and more.NGS Conferences: A comprehensive list of next-generation sequencing conferences.I want to learn bioinformatics!: A guide by Nick Loman for helping a non-computer-literate person to learn bioinformaticsBioinformatics not something you are taught; it's a way of life: Blog post by Mick Watson about how one doesn't simply learn bioinformatics in a week-long workshop. It takes years of practice and hands-on doing to learn how to solve problems in bioinformatics, and this post gives some great suggestions about how to get started.So you want to be a computational biologist?: Commentary article in Nature Biotechnology (2013, 31:996-998) by Nick Loman and Mick Watson, motivated in part by the blog posts above.
