The Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre provides training to the metabolomics community in both analytical and computational methods. The training centre partners with both the Phenome Centre Birmingham and the NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility to provide vocational training courses in clinical and environmental metabolomics. We offer a combination of both face-to-face and online courses. The Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre is directed by Dr Warwick Dunn, Professor Mark Viant, Dr Ralf Weber and Dr Catherine Winder. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/084/original/12106_BMTC_lock-up_AW-01.jpg?1508159124

Over the past 3 years BBASH has developed a number of 1, 2 and 3 day hands-on, NGS analysis workshops designed specificially to meet the needs of laboratory based researchers with little or no experience of NGS data analysis and command line tools. The workshops are held at the University of Leicester's state of the art College Court Conference Centre and consist of introductory presentations followed by practical sessions where delegates will gain hands-on experience of analysing and interpreting real data. The BBASH trainers are University of Leicester bioinformaticians or researchers with many years experience in bioinformatics and bioinformatics training, having delivered many workshops across the UK and Europe. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/086/original/BBASHlogo.png?1509536575

Since the beginning of its operations in 1998, the Center develops basic as well as translational and applied research programs at the cutting edge of modern biomedical sciences. Currently, the Center hosts 14 research groups distributed in 4 Institutes (Immunology, Molecular Oncology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cellular & Developmental Biology). Over the short period since its establishment, BSRC "Alexander Fleming" has gained extensive visibility in the European science arena. Fleming researchers have established transgenic animal models for rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis and these models have served as a basis for multiple collaborations with the international biopharmaceutical industry in the evaluation of novel therapeutic compounds, or as tools for collaborative R&D. The Center is equipped with state-of-the-art Core Units which include: an Expression Profiling Facility, a Flow Cytometry Facility, a Protein Chemistry Lab, a Transgenics and gene targeting Unit, and a BioIT Unit, all of which serve internal collaborations, as well as external partners in academia and industry. The Center also runs an Innovation and Enterprise Unit that facilitates the protection and exploitation of the Center’s research and technologies. Fleming operates its own Animal House, which can house up to 15,000 mice, and has its own complete mouse histopathology unit. Fleming’s Animal house (certified with ISO 9001) provides husbandry of animals and services to the biomedical research community since 2001. It covers an area of approximately 600 m2 within the Center and is equipped with highly automated systems that provide the best possible conditions for mouse reproduction and maintenance. Its main activity is the reproduction and maintenance of mice stocks either of inbred strains or genetically engineered mice, such as transgenic and knockout mouse lines, as well as chemically induced mutants developed by Fleming researchers. The Animal House has a capacity to house more than 18,000 mice and is currently the largest Mouse Unit in Greece in terms of number and variety of mice. The Facility became a full member of EMMA in 2009. Main areas of research: Functional genomics and proteomics; Molecular and cellular immunology; Animal models of human disease; Transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms of gene regulation; DNA repair; Stem Cell differentiation; Epigenetics; Learning and memory; ECM biology. Fields of excellence: Molecular mechanisms of disease (inflammation, cancer, metabolic syndrome, CNS disorders). /system/content_providers/images/000/000/051/original/logo.png?1469458221

Protein, RNA and DNA data can be directly accessed from public databases (e.g. Pfam, Rfam, PDB, UniProt and ENA etc.). Jalview has editing and annotation functionality within a fully integrated, multiple window interface. The sequence alignment programs Clustal Omega, Muscle, MAFFT, ProbCons, T-COFFEE, ClustalW, MSA Prob and GLProb can be run directly from within Jalview. Jalview integrates protein secondary structure prediction (JPred), generate trees, assesses consensus and conservation across sequence families. Journal quality figures can be generated from the results. The Jalview Desktop will run on Mac, MS Windows, Linux and any other platform that supports Java. It has been developed in Geoff Barton's group (www.compbio.dundee.ac.uk) in the School of Life Sciences (www.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk) at the University of Dundee with funding from the BBSRC and the Wellcome Trust. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/091/original/logo-boxg.png?1524735946
