With the increase in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic information there is a growing need to understand the metabolic phenotype that these genes and proteins ultimately control. The aim of this course is to provide an overview of metabolomics and its applications in life sciences, clinical and environmental settings. Over 2 days we will introduce different techniques used to extract metabolites and analyse samples to collect metabolomic data (such as HPLC or GC-based MS and NMR), present how to analyse such data, how to identify metabolites using online databases and how to map the metabolomic data to metabolic pathways. The course content will predominantly be based on analysing samples from model plant species such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the procedures are transferable to all other organisms, including clinical and environmental settings. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Variant Discovery with GATK4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-discovery-with-gatk4 This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling germline short variants, somatic short variants, and copy number alterations with the [Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK)](https://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/), using “Best Practices” developed by the GATK methods development team. A team of methods developers and instructors from the Data Sciences Platform at Broad will give talks explaining the rationale, theory, and real-world applications of the GATK Best Practices. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant-calling process, what key operations are performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. If you are an experienced GATK user, you will gain a deeper understanding of how the GATK works under-the-hood and how to improve your results further, especially with respect to the latest innovations. *Day 1: Introductory and Overview. The first day of the workshop gives a high-level overview of various topics in the morning, and in the afternoon we show how these concepts apply to a case study. The case study is tailored based on the audience, as represented by their answers in our pre-workshop survey. *Day 2: Germline Short Variant Discovery. Today we dive deep into the tools that make up the GATK Best Practices Pipeline. In the morning we discuss variant discovery, and in the afternoon we look at refinement and filtering. You will have the opportunity both in the morning and in the afternoon to get hands-on with these tools and run them yourself. *Day 3: Somatic Variant Discovery. Today we will cover Somatic Variant Discovery in more depth. In the morning we primarily focus on calling short variants with Mutect2, and in the afternoon we look at copy number alterations. Both sections have a paired hands-on activity. *Day 4: Pipelining. Over the first three days, you would have learned a lot about different pipelines and tools that you can use in GATK. Today we will be learning all about how those pipelines are written in a language called WDL. In the afternoon we cover other useful topics to working on the cloud, including Docker and BigQuery. Please note that this workshop is focused on human data analysis. The majority of the materials presented does apply equally to non-human data, and we will address some questions regarding adaptations that are needed for analysis of non-human data, but we will not go into much detail on those points. The hands-on GATK tutorials in this workshop will be conducted on [Terra](https://terra.bio/), a new platform developed at Broad in collaboration with Verily Life Sciences for accessing data, running analysis tools and collaborating securely and seamlessly.

The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques.

  • The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition)

    10 - 11 October 2019

    Leuven, Belgium

    The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology

The course starts with an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments for the detection of genome-wide DNA binding sites of transcription factors and other proteins. We first show data quality control and basic analytical steps such as alignment, peak calling and motif analysis, followed by practical examples on how to work with biological replicates and fundamental quality metrics for ChIP-seq datasets. On the second day, we then focus on the analysis of differential binding, comparing between different samples. We will also give an introduction to ATAC-seq data analysis for the detection of regions of open chromatin. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
