Personal Experience:

  • Gläsernes Labor Berlin-Buch

  • Max Planck Gesellschaft (MPG)
    • Since 2005 Nicola Gaedeke has established a Bioinformatics Support Network among Max-Planck-Institutes in close collaboration with the Information Retrieval Services of the Bio-Medical Section of the MPG.
      • The services include the development and teaching of Online Workshops via Adobe Connect. Workshop topics and more information is available on our Workshops-Information Page
    • Nicola Gaedeke earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (Golm, Germany). As a postdoctoral research scientist at the institute, she persued her interest in bioscientific information management.
  • National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)
    • Nicola Gaedeke works closely together with the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), Bethesda (MD). On a consulting basis, she contributed to the development of the 5 day NCBI's Advanced Workshop for Bioinformatics Information Specialist that was first taught in August 2002. The effort of teaching bioinformatics analysis tools to information specialists is made to better match user questions with the appropriate resources, as an enormous number of resources are published.

  • Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library
    • Nicola Gaedeke established the Bioinformatics User Support Service for the scientific community of the University of Utah (USA) at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, Salt Lake City, in the years 2000-2002. The activities of the service included the development and teaching of classes that cover data mining and analysis tools for data obtained from molecular biology research.

The following workshop modules are offered by on request. Each module covers 3-4 hrs. For individual training at your location the modules can be extended or shortened, depending on the interest of the class participants. If you are interested in the composition of a course at your facility, please contact me for further arrangements. Workshops on other topics in the field of the life sciences can also be prepared. The current workshop modules are:

Workshops for the Bio-Scientist (class descriptions)
