  • CRISPR-CAS9 TOOL:From Gene Function

    27 June 2016

    Barcelona, Spain

    CRISPR-CAS9 TOOL:From Gene Function https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/crispr-cas9-tool-from-gene-function Today´s powerful new tools enable researchers to construct novel experiments in a wide range of fields—from basic biomedical research to biotechnology and medicine—allowing them to edit genomes at sites of their choosing. Using most recent technologies in genome engineering, it is now possible to create knock-in, knock-outs and mutations of any gene in any cell line or organism with high efficiency. This approach allows the perturbation of biological systems at the genomic as well as the proteomic level. In silico analysis provides a good approximation of molecular structure in relation to function, and is always used to predict and enhance the success of genome editing technologies. The combination of these approaches is often used in gene therapy as well as in synthetic biology applications. 2016-06-27 00:00:00 UTC 2016-06-27 00:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona, Spain Centre for Genomic Regulation Barcelona Spain Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing

    15 July 2016

    Canberra, Australia

    Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/detecting-mutations-with-short-read-sequencing Reed A. Cartwright, Arizona State University Studying the process of de novo mutation from deep-sequencing of related samples is a difficult task. Because de novos are rare, artifacts generated by experimental and biological error tend to be more common than true positives. While de novos can be identified through validation, this is a slow process. In order to estimate mutation rates on large datasets in an automated way, we need to develop new probabilistic models that can handle sources of false positives. In this talk I will be discussing new computational methods to detect de novo mutations and their application to three different systems: human trios, ciliate mutation accumulation experiments, and yellow box eucalyptus.

    Nextflow 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nextflow-2019 **Create. Deploy. Share.** Nextflow is a popular workflow management solution that allows scientists and engineers to create data-driven applications which can be effortlessly scaled across clusters and clouds. It simplifies the writing of complex distributed computational workflows in a portable and replicable manner. Nextflow allows the seamless parallelization and deployment of any existing application with minimal development and maintenance overhead, irrespective of the original programming language. Containerisation technologies and inbuilt executors for the most popular cluster systems (SLURM, PBS, UGE, LSF, etc) and cloud infrastructure (AWS Batch & Google Cloud Platform) ensures unrivalled deployment. The built-in support for code repositories provides code sharing for the collaborations that matter most and enable your applications to touch the world. But most of all, the active community of that has formed around Nextflow provides inspirational, best-in-class technical examples from global leaders in workflow deployment as well as lasting relationships in a growing community. __Nextflow Training - 17th and 18th September 2019__ The week kicks off with a two-day intensive workshop intended for Nextflow beginners and intermediate users. In these practical sessions, participants learn about Nextflow technology starting from basic through to advanced concepts, with the expectation they will acquire the proficiency to develop and deploy their own workflows. The workshop will be provided across 14 topics including processes, operators, executors, containers and best practices. A GitHub repository will be provided with all the necessary material and software as well as AWS cloud instances for running the deployments in the relevant practical sessions. The audience is expected to have at least some prior basic command line experience. __Nextflow Camp - 19th and 20th September 2019__ Nextflow Camp brings together the Nextflow community of developers and users to discuss the state of Nextflow technology, the latest developments and tackle the open questions in a collaborative manner. Each day is split between talks from Nextflow experts and tutorial breakout sessions where participants get a flavour for the possibilities for their own applications.

    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
