    Elixir node event
    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course In short, the technology transfer course is designed to give you an idea of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings; What steps are necessary to commercialize your work; The VIB-approach to starting innovative companies, and How research can be turned into value for society. In the annual Technology Transfer course, the VIB Innovation & Business Team, supported by external speakers from industry, will go into detail on the practicalities of making technology transfer happen. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on your favorite topic. We will go through the term sheets and contracts that shape the framework of industrial collaborations and investments. We will have a lively case study to highlight the potentially complex relationships between scientist, TT-officer and company representative, and give an overview of the various stages of starting a new venture. If you want to participate, we ask you to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea, describing briefly the concept and potential applications. More information will follow when we receive your registration.   2019-08-26 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-30 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Metagenomics: Data Analysis and Interpretation

    16 - 19 September 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Metagenomics: Data Analysis and Interpretation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metagenomics-data-analysis-and-interpretation This course will provide an overview of the main aspects involved in metagenomics data analysis and discussion around the interpretation and actual examples of the impact and applications of metagenomics derived research. A substantial part of the course will be devoted to hands-on experience with bioinformatics resources and tools relevant in metagenomics data analysis. Participants will start with an overview of NGS technologies, a look at experimental approaches and emerging technologies, including a tour of Earlham Institute’s Genomic Pipelines laboratories. Then the remainder of the course will be spent in front of the computers learning how to produce metagenomic assemblies, and taking participants from data to publication-ready figures. 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-19 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Software Carpentry Workshop

    16 - 18 October 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Software Carpentry Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-workshop-ab3af408-aa91-49ed-bab2-5db1f2e6d15d Educators: Malvika Sharan, Georg Zeller, Mike Smith, Thomas Schwarzl, Frank Thommen (HD-HuB), Holger Dinkel Date: 16-10-2019 - 18-10-2019 09:00-18:00 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab, EMBL Heidelberg Contents: Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This course provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing. Topics covered include: Introduction to Python scripting Introduction to the Unix shell and usage of cluster resources Version control with Git and Github Analysis pipeline management Scientific Python & working with biological data Literate programming with Jupyter notebooks 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: This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will be familiar with some command line/programmatic computer usage, will want to become more confident using these tools efficiently and reproducibly. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable using git). Keywords: Programming; Command Line; Version Control; Bioinformatics; Data Analysis; Cluster Computing Tools: Python; Bash; Unix/Linux; Git; GitHub; SnakeMake; Biopython; Pandas; Numpy; SciPy; Matplotlib 2019-10-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-18 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI / ELIXIR Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
