To keep you up to date with the latest developments in virus bioinformatics, especially new tools that might help you in your research, the European Virus Bioinformatics Center is organising a monthly lecture series entitled viruses in silico.
The lecture will take place online as a Zoom Meeting. Participation is free. Use the registration form to receive the login details. Registration is possible until 1 hour before the start of the event.
Lectures are not recorded.

Given the numerical dominance of bacteriophages, their central roles in all microbiomes, and their diversity, it is clear we need a better understanding of the genetic and functional potential of viruses. In recent years, the resurgence and greater spread of phage therapy has raised the stakes even higher: the better we know our phages, the more safely we can use them as surrogate antibiotics. I will describe our most recently developed, machine learning-based tools for more thorough annotation of bacteriophage genomes.
