  • Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis

    27 - 29 September 2017

    Fisciano, Italy

    Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/training-course-on-best-practices-for-rna-seq-data-analysis Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of RNA libraries (RNA-Seq) has become increasingly common and it largely replaced microarray technology for gene expression profiling. The aim of this course is to get a deeper understanding of RNA-Seq experiments, providing a theoretical introduction to the data processing steps, together with practical sessions illustrating the use of the most popular data analysis tools. The classroom size is limited to 25 participants to optimize the learning and the interaction with the instructors. Starting from the raw sequenced data coming from different phenotypical samples (e.g disease vs healthy control samples), genes which are differentially expressed between the two conditions are determine. Some strategies are illustrated for detecting alternative splicing products, predicting novel isoforms and gene fusion events. Some methods for downstream analysis are described to give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-Seq experiments. A lecture on single-cell RNA-Seq will provide an idea of how transcriptome data from individual cells is now emerging as a powerful tool, allowing the study of cell-to-cell gene expression heterogeneity in the same tissue. 2017-09-27 09:15:00 UTC 2017-09-29 16:30:00 UTC Anna Marabotti (University of Salerno and ELIXIR-IIB Training Team, Italy), Roberto Tagliaferri (University of Salerno, Italy), Alessandro Weisz (University of Salerno, Italy), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Team and IIT, Italy), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, CNR-IBPM, Italy) Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132, Fisciano, Italy Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132 Fisciano Provincia di Salerno Italy 84084 Transcriptomics RNA splicing Sequencing Bioinformatics RNA-Seq Gene expression Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Italy elixir.ita.training@gmail.com, amarabotti@unisa.it ELIXIR Italy PhD students and young researchers in the life science and computational biology field who are planning to use RNA-seq data and are looking for the best practices to analyze these types of data 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest NGSRNA-SeqBioinformaticsData analysisHigh Throughput Sequencing AnalysisGene Expression

    ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Train the Trainer https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-excelerate-train-the-trainer ELIXIR-IIB, in cooperation with the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Train-The-Trainer programme, will hold a Train the Trainer (TtT) event in connection with a course on “Best Practices for RNA-Seq analysis”. The course is made up of four sessions, covering: Learning principles and how they apply to training and teaching; Teaching techniques that can be used to enhance learner engagement and participation; Assessment and feedback in training and teaching; Lesson, course, and materials design. 2017-09-27 12:13:00 UTC 2017-09-29 12:13:00 UTC Allegra Via, Pedro Fernandes, Anna Marabotti, Roberto Tagliaferri, Loredana Le Pera Campus di Fisciano, Università di Salerno, Fisciano, Italy Campus di Fisciano, Università di Salerno Fisciano Provincia di Salerno Italy 84084 RNA-Seq RNA Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Italy elixir.ita.training@gmail.com [] teachers / trainersAnyone who wants to become a teacher / trainer or a better one 15 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest TtT, Train the Trainer, Educational psychology, cognitive science, teaching practices
  • NETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment

    22 - 24 October 2018

    Genova, Italy

    NETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nettab-2018-building-a-fair-bioinformatics-environment NETTAB 2018 is organised in collaboration with ELIXIR Nodes of the UK and Italy as well as the Italian Society of Bioinformatics, BITS. The main focus will be on FAIR principles in bioinformatics, a challenging topic that we hope will attract many researchers from all over the world, including but not limited to, Bioinformaticians, Biologists, Computer Scientists, and others working or interested in the above research scope. The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship, published in 2016, has sparked worldwide interest across the biology community: from grassroots to policymakers, and from data providers to publishers. In order to make the FAIR concept a reality, we need to answer many questions, like: What is FAIRness? How to make FAIR data a reality? How to facilitate the translation to FAIR data? How to measure it? On these topics, there are many ongoing projects, such as EOSCpilot, FAIRmetrics, FAIRsharing, and GO-FAIR. Now is the perfect time to discuss on these topics and related actions, and to move on from FAIR principles to FAIR practice. The workshop will provide an excellent environment and a range of opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, algorithms, tools, platforms, practical applications and experiences of FAIR in Bioinformatics. 2018-10-22 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-24 17:00:00 UTC NETTAB Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, 10, Largo Rosanna Benzi, Genova, Italy Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, 10, Largo Rosanna Benzi Genova Città Metropolitana di Genova Italy Data management [] paolo.romano@hsanmartino.it - paolo.dm.romano@gmail.com ELIXIR [] meetings_and_conferences [] FAIR
