  • Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020

    19 - 23 October 2020

    Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/computing-skills-for-reproducible-research-software-carpentry-course-2020 Educators: Renato Alves (HD-HuB) Date: 19-10-2020 - 23-10-2020 09:00-18:00 Location: Online 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 2020-10-19 09:00:00 UTC 2020-10-23 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • ELIXIR CZ Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences I

    26 - 27 October 2020

    Prague, Czechia

    Elixir node event
    ELIXIR CZ Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences I https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-cz-artificial-intelligence-in-life-sciences-i This workshop will provide a basic introduction to machine learning and its application in Life Sciences, with a special focus on molecular and cell biology. Data-driven approaches penetrate various scientific disciplines, including the fields of biology, biochemistry and biotechnology. Novel technologies of high-throughput data collection and advanced data analysis, such as deep neural networks, offer exceptional opportunities for the development of very complex and accurate mathematical models. The theoretical lectures will cover main methods, algorithms and technologies, illustrate their use in biology and biochemistry research using real-life examples. Hands-on practicals will provide participants with essential skills for the application of machine learning methods and software tools for solving problems in Life Sciences. We plan to continue in our effort to organize follow-ups of this meeting and focus on challenging issues in life science disciplines approachable by AI technology. 2020-10-26 11:00:00 UTC 2020-10-27 14:00:00 UTC ELIXIR CZ, IOCB, FNUSA – ICRC, University of West Bohemia Flemingovo nám. 542, 542, Flemingovo náměstí, Prague, Czechia Flemingovo nám. 542, 542, Flemingovo náměstí Prague Hlavní město Praha Czechia 166 10 [] https://www.elixir-czech.cz/events/elixir-cz-artificial-intelligence-in-life-sciences-oct-2020 [] [] 75 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Artificial Intelligencemachine learningDrug design

  • Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research

    19 - 20 November 2020

    Leuven, Belgium

    Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/emerging-technologies-in-single-cell-research Biomedical research is at a turning point. Single cell technologies are opening extraordinary opportunities to address today’s medical challenges. These new tools will enhance our molecular understanding of functional cell states. They will give us major insights into when, how and why diseases of all kinds arise. Working at the cutting edge of this field, VIB has teamed up with LifeTime, a pan-European research initiative that wants to combine single-cell multi-omics, advanced imaging, artificial intelligence/machine learning and personalized disease models to fundamentally change the current medical practice. At the first edition of Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research, a two-day conference, VIB and LifeTime will bring together top researchers in the fields of multi-omics and artificial intelligence. Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending SingleCell20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 27 September 2020. 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.
