  • Local EGA face-to-face Meeting

    19 October 2018

    Spain

    Local EGA face-to-face Meeting https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/local-ega-face-to-face-meeting Description The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) has been archiving, managing and distributing biomolecular human data in a secure manner for over ten years. Both data and associated information (metadata) for all the projects are currently centrally stored. In order to accommodate institutional or national restrictions when it comes to data transference, and taking advantage of all the experience and development harvested during the last decade, the EGA is leading a “Local EGA” project within the ELIXIR framework. This federated network of Local EGAs will allow to keep the biological samples in the desired location, which is also expect to dramatically speed up the data transference. While Local EGA initiative started months ago with the collaboration of several ELIXIR nodes (current status can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8tIDZvDGKQ), both the maturity and the number of interested parties have increased. This Face to Face meeting, held at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), aims to generate the appropriate discussion and agree the following steps. The focus of this meeting is managerial (rather than developmental). Therefore all interested ELIXIR nodes are warmly invited to take part in the discussion and join the project. It is expected that depending on the feedback, events focused on development and technical aspects may also take place in the future. Agenda --- morning coffee --- Welcome and introduction to the meeting The Local EGA project: an overview Local EGA demo (non-technical) --- coffee break --- The Federation model concept Round table about the plans for the Nodes or initiatives --- lunch ---- Discussion on the terms of agreement or SLA Discussion on the scope of the Local EGA Platform --- end of meeting ---   Travel and accommodation Participants are required to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements for this meeting. More information on reaching the venue and nearby accommodation can be found here.   Contact Should you need more information about the project so far, future milestones and logistics of the meeting, please contact Audald Lloret (audald.lloret@crg.eu).   2018-10-19 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-19 09:00:00 UTC Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, Spain Barcelona Biomedical Research Park Spain 08003 [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Launch Meeting for a proposed ELIXIR Community in Structural Bioinformatics

    19 October 2018

    Switzerland

    Launch Meeting for a proposed ELIXIR Community in Structural Bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/launch-meeting-for-a-proposed-elixir-community-in-structural-bioinformatics This meeting will discuss a proposed new ELIXIR Community in Structural Bioinformatics – 3DBioInfo.ELIXIR Communities enable the participation of communities of practice in different areas of the life sciences in the activities of ELIXIR, which underpin the evolution of a data, tools, interoperability, compute and training infrastructure for European life science informatics (see  https://www.elixir-europe.org/use-cases). ELIXIR supports its formally recognised Communities by providing funding for workshops and short collaborative projects associated with the Community. Structural bioinformatics has a broad impact across the life sciences and provides tools to archive, visualise, analyse, annotate, and predict molecular structures. The science of structural bioinformatics is traditionally very strong in Europe offering many software tools, methodologies, and databases, as well as community-wide prediction challenges. Its applications cover research activities from structural biology to drug discovery and personalised medicine that are all well represented within the national ELIXIR nodes. At the meeting we will have presentations from structural bioinformatics groups engaged in or planning ELIXIR endorsed activities around structure based analyses and prediction methods. There will also be presentations from other ELIXIR communities with related interests and from ELIXIR platforms with guidance on how structural bioinformatics groups can collaborate with ELIXIR support. Importantly, we will have a session planning the activities and aims that will form the basis of a white paper to submit to the ELIXIR hub for endorsement as a Community in Structural Bioinformatics. This meeting will be held on Friday 19th October, the day after the SWISS-MODEL 25th Anniversary Symposium, being held at the same venue. It is not necessary to register for the SWISS-MODEL meeting to attend the 3D-BioInfo meeting.  The meeting will start at 10.00 am and end at 5.30pm. There will be a cost of 50 CHF to register for the meeting. The meeting will be capped at 100 participants so please register soon to avoid disappointment. Full details, including how to register can be found here:  https://swissmodel.expasy.org/25years/elixir Call for abstracts and posters: If you would like to give a flash talk (one slide) to advertise a poster at the meeting on a proposed ELIXIR activity (involving collaborations across two or more groups within an ELIXIR node and preferably involving two or more nodes) please send a summary (maximum one page) to c.orengo@ucl.ac.uk outlining the groups and ELIXIR nodes involved and the ELIXIR platforms this activity would relate to i.e. interoperability, data, tools, compute or training. The proposed activity should ideally involve two or more platforms.   Deadline for the abstracts: September 30th Ideas presented at the meeting will be considered for inclusion in the application to become an ELIXIR Community.  Further information For information on the timelines for forming an ELIXIR Community in Structural Bioinformatics please see:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/10a5PTWA8b00i7jYeuyOQQ0OXdn-EUoUI/view?usp=sharing For information on suggested major themes and activities of the 3D-BioInfo Community – please see link below.

  • Intrinsically disordered proteins ELIXIR User Community kickoff meeting

    31 October 2018

    Italy

    Intrinsically disordered proteins ELIXIR User Community kickoff meeting https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/intrinsically-disordered-proteins-elixir-user-community-kickoff-meeting About This kickoff meeting will discuss a recently approved ELIXIR User Community on the topic of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs). Over the last two decades, IDPs have developed from being a pet project of biophysicists interested in protein (non-)folding to being recognized as a major determinant in cellular regulation. It is estimated that almost half of the human proteome is made up of “dark” residues mostly encoding for IDPs and related phenomena with IDPs having central roles for​ protein homeostasis, cellular signaling and implicated in many human diseases. One of the key problems with IDPs, and the main limitation why their existence is not yet translated into the ELIXIR core data resources, was the lack of a clear definition of the phenomenon. In a way, the concept of intrinsic disorder is itself disordered, as different authors have used it to mean somewhat different things. ELIXIR User Community coordinate ELIXIR’s activities by bringing together experts to develop specialised standards, services, workshops and Implementation Studies in the domains of Human Data, Rare Diseases, Marine Metagenomics, Plant Sciences, Proteomics, Metabolomics and Computational resources. IDP User Community would drive the integration of data from (un-)structural biology into the core data resources and would provide new standards, technology and training to develop the field.

    United Kingdom

    Call to take part in RI-PATHS participatory workshops on the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/call-to-take-part-in-ri-paths-participatory-workshops-on-the-socio-economic-impact-of-research-infrastructures The aim of the RI-PATHS (Research Infrastructure imPact Assessment PaTHways) project is to develop a model describing the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures and their related financial investments. ELIXIR will be one of several case studies. The RI-PATHS team is kindly inviting the research infrastructure stakeholder community to take part in the refinement and substantiation of the socio-economic impact assessment model that the project team is currently developing. The aim is to generate a shared understanding of when, how and under what conditions investments in research infrastructures bring about various types of impacts. At the same time, workshop participants will be asked to focus on establishing the largest common denominator of what impact pathways are the most relevant and feasible to account for in an impact assessment.

Scope The topics of this biohackathon will be broader than semantics and interoperability typically predominant in the BioHackathons organised in Japan. The priority topics will be defined by ELIXIR platforms, ELIXIR use cases and a selection of communities proposed by ELIXIR France. We specially welcome non ELIXIR members to join and work with ELIXIR partners on activities relevant for ELIXIR and the bioinformatics community in general. Though most of the topics of the BioHackathon are expected to be aligned to existing ELIXIR activities the BioHackathon will also be open to new tools and communities (eg. Cytoscape and reproducible networks) Goals Engage the technical people in the bioinformatics community inside and outside ELIXIR to work together on topics of common interest aligned to ELIXIR activities Make more robust the interactions with new ELIXIR communities (ex.  Metabolomics and Proteomics) to establish and reinforce collaborations through hands-on programming activities organised at the event.
