  • Advanced Python For Biologists

    25 July - 29 May 2016

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Advanced Python For Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-3b007f2f-c334-478c-8b5b-cdbb7a7ce5ee This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The course will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. 2016-07-25 09:00:00 UTC 2016-05-29 00:00:00 UTC The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3FD Bioinformatics Software engineering Biology [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • SASB 2016

    7 September 2016

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    SASB 2016 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/sasb-2016 SASB is a one day workshop that aims at promoting discussions and collaborations at the intersection inbetween the specific field of formal methods covering modelling languages and static analysis, and the following fields: (i) systems biology targetting a system-level understanding of biological systems, (ii) synthetic biology targetting functional modifications to naturally occurring systems, (iii) molecular programming and development of engineered biological and chemical systems. The workshop targets biological networks and executable models of biological systems and molecular devices, focusing on their formal specification and static analysis. A special emphasis is given to rule-based or process-algebraic languages that have the advantage of compact representation and provide a robust tool for systems and synthetic biology as well as a good base for molecular programming languages. Since the state space explodes combinatorially with number of possible states of biochemical substances, static analysis allows investigation of important features from a model without its exhaustive execution. In particular, it allows to pre-process molecular programs and optimise their implementation in DNA; ease characterization of the behaviors of a model; abstractions that prevent a full exploration of the potential concrete behaviors; model reductions, that decrease the dimension of a model while preserving important behaviors; characterization of dynamical properties with respect to the topology of the model; etc. All these features empower and strengthen applicability and efficiency of dynamical analysis and verification. 2016-09-07 00:00:00 UTC 2016-09-07 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh, United Kingdom Edinburgh United Kingdom Biology [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Advances in Computational Biology Conference 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
