Survey of Bioinformatics and Computational Needs in Australia 2016.pdf

2016 Figshare  
In order to gain a snapshot of the bioinformatics and computational biology needs among life scientists and medical researchers, EMBL-ABR Hub conducted a survey (July-Sep 2016) across Australia.  ...  In total 123 responses were received from around Australia, distributed across all states and this document summarises the results and provides a link to the collected survey results.  ...  One respondent requested less training -"Less training, more resource funding and allocation" -which may indicate a frustration with general under-resourcing for bioinformatics as a whole.  ...
