  • Big data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences

    24 May 2017

    Diepenbeek, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Big data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-high-performance-computing-in-life-sciences Current pharmaceutical research and development generates vast amounts of data. These big data come from high content screens, magnetic resonance imaging, omics and diagnostic patient monitoring devices. Together with this increasing magnitude of databases there is an associated increase in the time required to execute data processing. With the increasing complexity of methodology and new scientific insights, the existing computational algorithms and infrastructure are unlikely to cope with the challenges soon. Complex statistical models will push the limits of the current algorithms and implementations. To be able to face the challenges of the near future increased performance both at the algorithmic and software/hardware levels are deemed crucial. Case studies on drug development will be given. One important project that is part of a collaboration of academic and industrial partners is conducting research on the computational requirements for disease modeling of Type II Diabetes as part of the ExaScience project (www.exascience.com). Appropriate use of computing infrastructure and high performance computing software makes it possible to use these new technologies in a time-constrained setting. This is a requirement when the disease models are used to make decisions within hours during the interim analyses of clinical trials with adaptive experimental designs. Besides this project other real-life cases presented include genomics, microbiome and brain imaging.

  • Deep learning application in the life sciences

    29 May 2017

    Diepenbeek, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning application in the life sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-application-in-the-life-sciences Deep learning has made headlines over the last couple of years, with applications in various domains. This approach has a lot of potential in life sciences. As datasets in life sciences increase in size there is a growing need for techniques that can fully take advantage of them. The advent of Big Data alongside an exponential increase in computing power has led to the re-emergence of neural networks (now mostly referred to as “Deep Learning”). These techniques flourish when given enough data, which makes them ideal for the interpretation of massive datasets. In this talk, we provide an introduction to Deep Learning as well as some examples of how it is being applied in the context of life sciences. Speakers: Jan Yperman and dr. Thijs Becker 2017-05-29 09:00:00 UTC 2017-05-29 00:00:00 UTC Hasselt University room C20 building D, Diepenbeek, Belgium Hasselt University room C20 building D Diepenbeek Belgium Campus [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Bioinformatics tools to predict protein properties from sequence

    10 September 2019

    Brussels, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Bioinformatics tools to predict protein properties from sequence https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-tools-to-predict-protein-properties-from-sequence In this workshop, we address how to predict features of proteins from their sequence only, using Python scripts to access APIs of web services available online. We will introduce single-sequence based predictions of biophysical characteristics of proteins (e.g. DynaMine for backbone dynamics), methods that use multiple sequence alignments (e.g. I-TASSER), and methods that determine the difference between a protein and its mutant form (e.g. DEOGEN2). We will also show how the results of these predictions can be combined and analysed using a protein case study. 2019-09-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-10 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core U-Residence Brussels, Brussels, Belgium U-Residence Brussels Brussels Belgium 1050 [] [] [] [] [] []
