  • Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling

    14 - 15 May 2018

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/multiple-sequence-alignment-with-jalview-and-protein-structure-and-function Date: Monday 14th to Tuesday 15th May 2018 Time: 9.00 to 17.00 Location: MSTC, Sherrington Building, University of Liverpool, L69 3BX Overview This two day hands-on training course is aimed at students and researchers who want to gain practical understanding of the tools and approaches for protein sequence, structure and function prediction and analysis. In day 1, participants will be introduced to Jalview - a free desktop application for the visualisation and comparative analysis of protein, DNA and RNA sequences. Jalview can integrate data from Ensembl, Uniprot, PDBe, Rfam and Pfam, and can access a range of tools for multiple sequence alignment, conservation analysis and secondary structure and disorder prediction, including the widely used JPred4. On the second day, participants will learn to use Jalview’s 3D structure visualisation capabilities in conjunction with UCSF Chimera, and take a whistle-stop tour of the methodologies and tools for prediction and analysis of Protein 3D structure and function. Participants are encouraged to bring their own protein analysis problems and time will be reserved at the end of day 2 for discussion.

  • Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery

    13 - 17 May 2019

    Bled, Slovenia

    Elixir node event
    Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-on-high-content-imaging-and-data-science-for-virtual-screening-and-drug-discovery High-throughput phenotypic screening, based on high-content imaging, is increasingly often used as a tool for drug discovery. Compound screens are used to find hits that produce the desired phenotypes in relevant cellular assays. Genomic screens are used to elucidate the underlying molecular pathways and identify suitable drug targets. Since high-content screening produces a lot of data, data science approaches such as statistics, machine learning and neural networks can help interpret the collected data. Just as virtual screening can be performed in chemoinformatics (learning predictive models for QSAR - quantitative structure-activity relations) from data obtained through compound screens, similar approaches can be taken in the context of high-throughput phenotypic screening. This will be the first event of its kind in the region of Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. The event will bring together a group of experts covering different topics in the fields of high-content screening, image analysis, chemoinformatics and machine learning. This will allow graduate students and researchers from both academia and industry to familiarize themselves with these cutting-edge topics. The workshop will have an impact on both the academic and industrial sector in the region (e.g. biotech companies of all sizes). The workshop is part of the INTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN (Big Data and Disease Models: A Cross- border Platform for Validated Biotech Industry Kits), which brings together experts on the topic from academia and industry. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 18:00:00 UTC Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia, Bled, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia Bled Gorenjska Slovenia SI-4260 Drug discovery Genomics Rikli Balance Hotel elixir@mf.uni-lj.si European UnionINTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN PhD studentsGraduate studentsResearchersBusiness EntrepreneursBiotechnology CompaniesPharmaceutical Industry workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest INTERREGPhenotypic screeningData analysisVirtual ScreeningHigh-content imaging
