Train online (www.ebi.ac.uk/training/online/) is a free, web-based learning resource for life scientists. Train online helps you make the most of the huge amount of biological data that EMBL-EBI makes publicly available for the research community. Using a combination of tutorials, guided examples, exercises and quizzes, Train online guides you towards becoming a confident user of open-access data resources. This training portal is there for you to learn in your own time and at your own pace, anywhere in the world. You do not need previous experience in bioinformatics to benefit from our courses. 

This presentation will provide a short introduction to the courses currently available in Train online, which will include a demonstration of the resource. After the demonstration, the speaker will welcome questions about Train online and any suggestions that you may have for future courses.
