More than twenty years after the first bacterial genome has been sequenced, microbiologists are faced with an avalanche of genomic data. However, the quality of the functional annotations of the sequenced proteome is very poor with more than half of the sequenced proteins remaining of unknown function.

With nearly 80,000 whole genomes sequences available and increasing amount of post-genomics experimental data available, it is possible to gather different types of information that lead to better functional annotations and can guide the experimental process. The workshop will guide the attendees through practical examples and show them an array of tools and databases that they can apply directly to their research problem.

No prior programming experience is required, all the tools available can be used through graphic user interfaces.
