Are you a trainee (wet-lab or dry-lab) wanting to learn genomics, proteomics, or transcriptomics analysis but are not sure where to start?
Are you a novice bioinformatician looking to expand your knowledge and skills?
Are you an 'omics expert wanting to share your experience with others?

If any of the above sound like you, you have come to the right place!
This is the home of the BCCHR Trainee 'Omics Group, a team of enthusiastic trainees from across the different research themes at BCCHR who are eager to make bioinformatics and data analysis accessible (and fun) for everyone - be it a fellow trainee, research staff, or even a PI wanting analysis support!

We host beginner and intermediate workshops and tutorials working in R, extra resources for coding and statistical analyses, materials for our upcoming workshops, and an “Ask a Statistician” feature where you can email us with your specific data analysis questions or suggestions for new content.

TOG has also led to the facilitation of collaborations across labs within BC Children's and BC Cancer - you never know when someone from the TOG community might be needing your specific expertise!

We are always available for support, and wish you good luck on your data analysis journey with the hope to see you at a workshop soon and joining the TOG Community!
