This is a two-part question, so bear with me!
We're currently putting together a 'writeathon' to provide some bioinformatics tutorial material on a Knowledgeblog. What topics do people think would be good to cover?
We're looking for tutorials that might be good for all levels - computer scientists interested in learning some biology, biologists getting interested in bioinformatics, and of course tutorials aimed at bioinformaticians by bioinformaticians.
The second part of the question is more of a call to arms. We have a travel budget, and would be happy to spend some of this encouraging people to come to Newcastle for a day (Tuesday 21st June) to write away with us. Obviously this is more likely to occur if you're in the UK, but close international travel could also be supported in a limited number of cases.
All tutorials will be given a citable DOI, and no promises, but we will go for PubMed inclusion if we get enough content. You could also contribute remotely on the day, should travel be impossible but you still want to get some content up!
Suggestions for tutorial topics under this question would be great, votes will allow us to work out what topics we cover and who we invite! If you're interested in joining us in Newcastle at the end of June then please drop me an email directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
