BioneQ - The Quebec Bioinformatics Network
By Sylvain Foisy
Project Manager, BioneQ
BioneQ, the Quebec Bioinformatics Network, is an organisation devoted to continous education in bioinformatics for life science professionals supported by Genome-Quebec. We are creating a serie of seminars and workshops on various topics in applied bioinformatics as well as creating online material on our web site (www.bioneq.qc.ca).
In addition, BioneQ is putting together a bioinformatics support service via a bulletin board devoted to bioinformatics, a database of bioinformatics online resources as well as a knowledgebase in bioinformatics.
Finally, BioneQ is building a web-based workbench supported by a beowulf-based cluster called Goldorak. A BLAST server is being created (in association with Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal) running a variant of BeoBLAST.
