  • AET16 Applied Evolutionary Theory

    7 - 11 November 2016

    Oeiras, Portugal

    AET16 Applied Evolutionary Theory For many of its history, our knowledge of evolution has been based heavily on theoretical models and hypotheses. In the age of novel experimental and technological approaches, we are now increasingly able to evaluate this theory; however, the basics of how and why to develop and analyze a simple model are often forgotten in the process of NGS analysis. This course aims at training evolutionary biologists in classical modeling and teach them ways to approach their own research questions through evolutionary theory. Primarily through interactive hands-on sessions, complemented by an introduction to the cornerstones of modeling and its application to data analysis, this course will familiarize the participants with ways of approaching a research question with a simple model, and different strategies at gaining insight from the model. In groups of two, course participants will develop and analyze their own toy model in the course and present their findings to the group on the last day. Topics that will be covered in the course include the following: Why and how are models useful? How to write down/develop a model How simple/complicated should a model be? Which modeling approach/programming language should I use for my question? How to nail down a question with a model Extracting results from an equation/simulation How to evaluate a model using empirical data Participants can use their preferred programming language during the hands-on sessions, and free access to Wolfram Mathematica will be provided. The instructors have modeling experience using Mathematica, R, Python, and C++. 2016-11-07 09:00:00 UTC 2016-11-11 00:00:00 UTC Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Oeiras Portugal 901 Computational biology Evolutionary biology [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Evolutionmodelling
  • Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019

    28 - 29 November 2019

    Barcelona, Spain

    Elixir node event
    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
  • Microbiome Visualization with Biome-Shiny

    31 January 2020

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Microbiome Visualization with Biome-Shiny Crash Course: Microbiome Visualization with Biome-Shiny is an introductory one-day workshop seeking to provide users with the knowledge to create, analyze and visualize microbiome data. The course consists of two parts: the first part, is an introduction to, and hands-on demonstration of, the DADA2 pipeline, which will be used to process a training dataset into a file that can be analyzed through the Biome-Shiny tool; the second part, employs the Biome-Shiny GUI to explore the obtained dataset's microbial community composition, as well as the alpha- and beta-diversity of the dataset, and download their results for later use. By the end of this course, participants should be able to apply the DADA2 algorithm to process their own sequenced reads, as well as employ Biome-Shiny as a GUI-based solution to explore their data and produce a final report. 2020-01-31 09:30:00 UTC 2020-01-31 17:30:00 UTC / Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal Metagenomics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec [] PhD students and post-docs who want to learn the basics of microbiome analysis in Bioinformatics, and have little knowledge of programming. workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
