Leuven, BelgiumAnalysis of 16S rRNA metagenomic experiments, online https://training.vib.be/product/323 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-16s-rrna-metagenomic-experiments-online Processing and statistical analysis of 16S rRNA metagenomic experiments using R & Lotus pipeline. The following analytical steps from raw data to communicable results will be on the program: Metagenomic experiment planning, execution and analysis Analyzing amplicon sequencing data with up-to-date tools and how to increase the quality of ASVs and OTUs, when to use what technique Post-clustering of ASVs to avoid intra-genomic ASV false-positives Working with low-biomass experiments, removing exogenous contamination in several scenarios Numerical ecology focused analysis workflow for both metagenomic and amplicon sequencing based studies Analysis of alpha/beta diversity Univariate statistics to identify species enriched in sample groups Multivariate statistics and visualization to identify clusters of samples Assessing microbial communities based on ecological principles and species distributions 2021-06-14 09:00:00 UTC 2021-06-16 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010      
Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition)
23 - 24 September 2021
Gent, BelgiumGenome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition) https://www.vibconferences.be/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last years has been breathtaking. The first three editions (September 2013, January 2016, January 2018) were a roaring success and we are pleased to announce the 4th edition of GESB in beautiful Ghent in September, 2020. Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending GESB20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 24 June 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of June. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you’re awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not mean being registered for the conference.

Introduction to the analysis of NGS data, online
30 September - 14 October 2021
Leuven, BelgiumIntroduction to the analysis of NGS data, online https://training.vib.be/product/346 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-the-analysis-of-ngs-data-online-fe44ff0a-a9a4-4d39-b81b-2648bbb12681 This training is an introduction to a series of trainings on the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data. This training is intended for newbies to the field and will teach them all background knowledge required to successfully complete the advanced NGS analysis trainings. To this end the training will give an overview of: - The Illumina platform - NGS data formats and file handling - Quality control of NGS data - Mapping of NGS data - Supporting IT: Galaxy platform 2021-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2021-10-14 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010
