  • 3rd Tool-Training for Proteomics

    28 October 2019

    Bochum, Germany

    3rd Tool-Training for Proteomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/3rd-tool-training-for-proteomics Educators: Michael Kohl, Treesa Sunny, Michael Turewicz and Julian Uszkoreit (BioInfra.Prot) Date: Monday, 2019-10-28 Location: Ruhr University Bochum, 44801 Bochum Contents: In this one day course we will show some of BioInfra.Prot's tools provided by de.NBI, namely “PIA - Protein Inference Algorithms”, “BIONDA – A Free Biomarker Database” and “CalibraCurve”. Besides the tool based sessions we offer a "Proteomics in the Cloud" session where we show advantages of cloud based bioinformatics and give a tutorial how to access the de.NBI cloud. PIA allows to inspect and combine the results of proteomics search engines. The main focus lays on the integrated inference algorithms for identification and quantification purposes. BIONDA is a free, up-to-date and user-friendly biomarker and biomarker candidate database that facilitates any kind of research on protein biomarkers and the corresponding diseases. CalibraCurve is a tool intended for the generation of calibration curves in the context of MRM (targeted proteomics) experiments. Such calibration curves are necessary for the selection of suitable transitions. Learning goals: Attendees of the course will learn how to use the tools PIA, BIONDA and CalibraCurve effectively for their daily proteomics tasks. Additionally they will learn how to use the de.NBI cloud. Prerequisites: This course is for all researches in the field of proteomics. The attendees should have basic knowledge of LC-MS proteomics, but no prior bioinformatics skills are required. Basic knowledge of how to analyse LC-MS data are sufficient. Attendees are required to bring their own laptops. If this is not possible or laptops have very low computing capacities, please contact the organizers.

    de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/de-nbi-elixir-train-the-trainer-workshop-to-learn-teaching-techniques de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques Heidelberg Educators: Malvika Sharan, Toby Hodges (HD-HuB), Elisabeth Zielonka Date: 11-11-2019 - 12-11-2019 09:30-17:00 Location: EMBL Heidelberg Room 202 Contents: The course is aimed at everyone who is interested in becoming a better teacher. The workshop is a mix of lectures and hands-on lessons where you practise giving a short lesson using approaches learned and implement some of the teaching techniques which we will discuss. This is training for teaching, not technical training; you do not need any particular technical background, and we will not be teaching that. This workshop is based on the constantly revised and updated curriculum. We will offer two parallel tracks (The Carpentries Track and ELIXIR Track), and you will be asked to choose one track that you would like to attend during this event. The Carpentries Track to become Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry and Library Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. ELIXIR Track is a non-programming module which will prepare you to organise or teach at the bioinformatics or wet-biology workshops. The Carpentries Track This module is aimed at those who want to become Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. You don't currently have to be an instructor or a teacher to attend this workshop, but you do need to be willing and committed to becoming one and to improving your teaching techniques. Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on two-day workshop covers the basics of educational psychology and instructional design and looks at how to use these ideas in both intensive workshops and regular classes. Please note that after this course is over, you will be asked to do three short follow-up exercises online in order to finish qualifying as an instructor: the details are available athttps://carpentries.github.io/instructor-training/checkout/. If you have any questions about the workshop, the reading material, or anything else, please get in touch. ELIXIR (non-programming) Track ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by publicly funded research. It coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access services that are vital for their research. In this module the trainer will deliver the ELIXIR curriculum aimed at the instructors interested in teaching workshops on the topics related to bioinformatics or wet-biology. Learning goals: This course aims to teach software writing skills and best practices to researchers in biology who wish to analyse data, and to introduce a toolset that can help them in their work. The goal is to enable them to be more productive and to make their science better and more reproducible. Prerequisites: When possible, participants should bring a laptop that can be connected to the Internet to follow teaching materials and developing a shared note. A device for recording audio and video (mobile phones and laptops are OK) will also be useful as throughout the two days, we are going to record one another teaching in pairs or threes. It does not have to be high-quality, but it should be good enough that you can understand what someone is saying. All participants are required to abide by The Carpentries' Code of Conduct.
