At The Forefront Of Plant Research
15 - 16 June 2017
Gent, BelgiumAt The Forefront Of Plant Research http://www.vibconferences.be/event/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB firstname.lastname@example.org  Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences  plantbiologygenomics
Epigenomic Data Analysis
15 - 16 June 2017
Montreal, CanadaEpigenomic Data Analysis https://bioinformatics.ca/workshops/2017/epigenomic-data-analysis-2017 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/epigenomic-data-analysis-814bc674-0a0a-42a1-9bd5-bbc43ae8b2b6 High-throughput sequencing of Chromatin-Immunoprecipitated libraries (ChIP-seq) and of bisulfite converted DNA (WGBS) have become increasingly common and have largely supplanted microarrays for chromatin and DNA methylation profiling. When processed appropriately, ChIP-seq data provides base-pair resolution representations of transcription factor DNA-binding events and nucleosome (histone) modifications genome-wide. Similarly, WGBS can provide a quantitative genome wide profile of cytosine methylation. The CBW has developed a 2-day course providing an introduction to histone ChIP-seq and WGBS data analysis followed by integrated tutorials demonstrating the use of open source ChIP-Seq and WGBS analysis packages. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools (FASTQC, BWA, MACS2, FindER, samtools, Picard, BisSNP). The course also includes an overview of integrative epigenomic tools that have been developed to explore ChIP-Seq and WGBS data together with other epigenomic datasets such as RNA-seq, DHS-seq and ATAC-seq. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Align ChIP-seq and WGBS sequence data to a reference genome (required) Identify narrow and broad peaks from ChIP-seq data Identify methylated levels from WGBS data Visualize and summarize the output of ChIP-Seq and WGBS analyses Explore integrative tools for epigenomic data sets 2017-06-15 08:30:00 UTC 2017-06-16 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Montreal, Montreal, Canada Montreal Montreal Montreal Canada ChIP-seq Epigenomics  email@example.com   30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest 
4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium
11 - 13 September 2018
Gent, Belgium4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium https://vibconferences.be/event/4th-plant-protease-and-pcd-symposium https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/4th-plant-protease-and-programmed-cell-death-symposium After three successful conferences on Plant Proteases and Programmed Cell Death organized in Hemavan, Sweden (2011); Barcelona, Spain (2013); and Oxford, UK (2016), it is our pleasure to host the fourth meeting in the beautiful medieval town of Ghent, Belgium. The roles of proteases in cell death, immunity, and developmental processes in plants have received increasing attention over the past years. On the one hand, proteases exert a key regulatory level of posttranslational modification on their substrates. On the other hand, proteolytic cascades are involved in household functions, as well as responsible for point-of-no-return decisions during developmentally or environmentally controlled programmed cell death. Despite their importance, however, we still know little about the functions and mode-of-actions of individual plant proteases. Over the past years, several research groups have tackled the functional characterization of plant proteases from different angles. Some laboratories are advancing technology development, others focus on biological processes that depend on protease activities, while again others elucidate the biochemistry of specific protease families. The aim of our meeting is to bring researchers of these different research directions together to discuss the latest developments and concepts in the field of plant proteases and programmed cell death. 2018-09-11 15:00:00 UTC 2018-09-13 22:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen, Gent, Belgium Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium Plant biology  Moritz Nowack 0032 9 331 38 00 firstname.lastname@example.org     plant proteaseplant cell deathplantsprotease
