  • Differential Gene Expression Analysis with R (microarray and NGS)

    25 May 2016

    Brisbane, Australia

    Differential Gene Expression Analysis with R (microarray and NGS) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/differential-gene-expression-analysis-with-r-microarray-and-ngs This hands-on workshop will introduce users of the R software environment to the specific skills and applications used in the analysis of microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Practical exercises will include quality control and normalisation of data for differential gene expression, and linking genomic information to external public datasets. Recommended participants Biologists and bioinformaticians wishing to use R for RNA expression analysis. Prior expertise with R and the command line interface is required, to a level equivalent of that provided by the QFAB workshop “Introduction to R”. What will I learn? During this course you will learn about: Pre-processing and quality control of microarray and RNA-Seq data The use of R packages for the identification of differentially-expressed genes from expression data Systems biology interpretation of gene lists using pathway analysis Integration of expression and genome data with Ensembl databases After this course you should be able to: Import Affymetrix CEL files to R as data objects Carry out standard QC tests on microarray and RNA-Seq datasets Use the limma-voom R package to produce lists of differentially expressed genes between pairs of samples Identify over-represented gene ontology categories in gene lists using the GOStats package 2016-05-25 09:00:00 UTC 2016-05-25 00:00:00 UTC University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia University of Queensland Brisbane Australia Sequencing Gene expression Data architecture, analysis and design [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ABRQFABR

  • International Symposium: Rare diseases and big data, from research to clinical practise

    26 - 27 October 2017

    Barcelona, Spain

    International Symposium: Rare diseases and big data, from research to clinical practise https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-symposium-rare-diseases-and-big-data-from-research-to-clinical-practise A rare disease is any disease that affects a small percentage of the population, however a high percentage of population can be involved, in fact the World Health Organization (WHO) consider 7000 rare diseases, affecting 7% of the population. Three million people with rare disease are estimated in Spain. The principal challenges regarding rare diseases nowadays include: The difficulty in clinical and molecular diagnosis. A specific clinical multidisciplinary management due to heterogeneity of the diseases. Persistent comorbidities, physical and cognitive after cure of the disease. Effective and safe therapies that can cure the disease and delay comorbidities, improving long-term prognosis. The volume data on rare diseases has grown steadily in recent years, for this reason it needs a specific technology to handle them. This symposium will focus on diagnostic and therapeutic advances in relation to rare diseases and big data and will allow interaction between national and international experts on the subject. The proposed topics, as well as invited speakers, are relevant internationally and are aimed at improving the final prognosis and quality of life of patients with rare diseases through the technology offered by big data. One of the aims of the symposium is also creating a working group that will aim to find new drugs for rare diseases. The symposium will cover the state of the art in the clinical management of these diseases, as well as current research and future perspectives, including pathogenesis, epidemiology, therapeutic novelties, long-term prognosis with residual morbidity, quality of life and drug-economic aspects in the management of these diseases. Its main objective will be to transmit to society the advantages and opportunities offered by big data technology to advance the diagnosis and design of new drugs that benefit the patient. The access to the symposium will be free and there will also be present patients' associations, students, general population, research centers, nurses, and universities, making it more interactive and educational. International Symposium: Rare diseases and big data, from research to clinical practise Free registration: fill out the registration form before 26 October 2017 Dates: 26-27 October 2017 Venue: CosmoCaixa Sala Àgora (C/ Isaac Newton 26, Barcelona, Spain) Organizers: Bioinformatics Barcelona Association (BIB) and Fundación Ramon Areces With the collaboration of: "la Caixa" Foundation and CIBERER 2017-10-26 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-27 18:00:00 UTC Bioinformatics Barcelona Carrer d'Isaac Newton, 26, 26, Carrer d'Isaac Newton, Barcelona, Spain Carrer d'Isaac Newton, 26, 26, Carrer d'Isaac Newton Barcelona Barcelona Spain Rare diseases [] [] [] [] first_come_first_served []
  • Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019

    28 - 29 November 2019

    Barcelona, Spain

    Elixir node event
    Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advances-in-computational-biology-conference-2019 The first **Advances in Computational Biology conference – _Fostering collaboration among women scientists_** will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors. One of the main purposes of the conference is to **visualize and promote the research done by women scientists** and for this reason, all presenters will be women, although the conference is open to everyone. We want to create a space to foster collaborations between scientists, providing an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build research networks. Topics included: - **Learning from Biological Sequences**: population genomics, evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence analysis - **When Computational Biology meets Medicine**: biomedical applications, mutational landscapes, clinical genomics - **Machines Speeding up Research**: high performance computing, machine learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic simulations and algorithm development Key dates: - Open registration: May 6th, 2019 - Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019 - **Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019** - Early bird registration deadline: September 15th, 2019 - Registration deadline: November 1st, 2019 - AdvCompBio Conference: November 28th - 29th, 2019 The programme will include poster and oral presentations, as well as keynotes from leading scientists in the computational biology and high-performance computing fields. The keynote speakers of the conference are: **Christine Orengo**, group leader of Orengo Group at University College London, **Natasa Przulj**, group leader of the Life Sciences – Integrative Computational Network Biology at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and **Marie-Christine Sawley**, director of the Exascale Lab at Intel. The confirmed chairs of the conference are: **Alison Kennedy**, director of the STFC Hartree Centre, **Janet Kelso**, group leader of the Minerva Research Group for Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and **Nuria Lopez-Bigas**, leader of the Biomedical Genomics Research Group at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to interact personally with female leaders in the fields of IT, academic research and politics that support the conference. The conference is organised by the Bioinfo4Women programme from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) with the collaboration of IMIM-UPF Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics (GRIB), the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It is an affiliate conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). 2019-11-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-29 17:00:00 UTC La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia Barcelona Barcelona Spain Imaging Machine learning Computational biology Computer science Biomedical science Sequence analysis Transcriptomics Evolutionary biology Population genomics Omics Systems biology Bioinformatics [] [] ResearchersPhD studentsPostdoctoral studentsComputer scienceComputational biologistsbioinformaticians meetings_and_conferences [] HPCBioinformaticsComputational BiologyArtificial IntelligenceGenomicsTranscriptomicsSystems biologyPopulation GenomicsEvolutinary genomicsSequence Analysisbiomedical applicationsmutational landscapesclinical genomicsImagingdynamic simulationsalgorithmsmachine learning
