Leuven, BelgiumGATK workshop http://www.vib.be/en/training/research-training/courses/Pages/GATK-Best-practices-for-variant-discovery.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/gatk-workshop This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling variants with the Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit, using the “Best Practices” developed by the GATK team. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant discovery process what are the operations performed on the data at each step how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. • samtools Familiarity with 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 training will take 3 days, you can register for each day separately 2017-02-20 09:30:00 UTC 2017-02-22 17:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3010 Sequence analysis      GATKBroad's Genome Analysis Toolkit
Handle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse
13 December 2017
Leuven, BelgiumHandle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse https://bbc2017blog.wordpress.com/workshops/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/handle-your-data-the-tidy-way-data-science-using-r-and-the-tidyverse The use of R in the data science field has increased enormously the last few years. One very useful toolkit for a wide variety of analyses is the ‘tidyverse’: a collection of R-packages used for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. Tidyverse packages are intended to make statisticians and data scientists more productive by guiding them through workflows that facilitate communication, and result in reproducible work products. In this workshop you will learn: The difference between tidy and untidy data How to create tidy datasets and manipulate them using the main tidyr and dplyr verbs Make your results reproducible by using Rmarkdown and Rstudio Integrate data visualisation into your workflow using ggplot2 Apply the tidyverse to biological problems LEVEL: A very basic knowledge of the R programming language (or any other programming language) is expected. We expect a little bit of R-experience for this workshop. If you’re already an R-wizard but never did anything using Tidyverse, then this workshop is a great introduction to it! If you’re not an R-wizard but now a little bit of R, then this course is a great way to improve your R-skills fast. If you’re already pretty good with Tidyverse, I guess we can not help you as this is an introduction Please remember to bring your own laptop with the last version of R installed.

Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (2nd edition)
8 - 9 March 2018
Leuven, BelgiumApplied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (2nd edition) https://vibconferences.be/event/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-2nd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-2nd-edition Registration is now open! As an integral part of biological research, the field of bioinformatics brings forth innovative computational approaches leading to high-impact results in an increasingly data-dense environment. After a sold-out first edition in March 2016, this second edition will feature recent developments in bioinformatics research, and highlight the power of computational biology in the fields of medical, agricultural, and biotechnology research. Renowned speakers will present how bioinformatics is applied broadly in life sciences, and shed light on the future perspectives of their research. During four plenary sessions, the speakers will focus on the topics: Medical Integrative Omics Proteomics and Metabolomics Structural Bioinformatics Systems Biology Conference attendees will have ample networking opportunities besides an exciting scientific program.

Metabolism in Cancer and Stromal Cells (2nd edition)
26 - 27 November 2018
Leuven, BelgiumMetabolism in Cancer and Stromal Cells (2nd edition) https://vibconferences.be/event/metabolism-in-cancer-and-stromal-cells-2nd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolism-in-cancer-and-stromal-cells-2nd-edition After a successful first edition of the VIB Conference “Metabolism in cancer and stromal cells” in September 2015, we are pleased to announce the second edition that will take place in the beautiful and historic city of Leuven. During this international Conference we will focus on how cancer and stromal cells metabolically communicate and how their specific metabolism impacts disease development and progression. These cellular metabolism insights will offer novel therapeutic opportunities for malignant, metabolic, or inflammatory disease. In addition, also the impact of ‘omics’ technologies to study cellular metabolism will be highlighted during the meeting. This conference will bring together internationally renowned experts who will showcase their findings on cell-type specific metabolism in cancer and beyond. By bringing together experts from different disciplines, we aim to provide a unique platform of interactions and to create a vibrant environment for discussions on novel concepts and recent technological developments. In addition to the scientific program with plenary talks and poster sessions, there will be ample opportunities to network during the breaks, reception and conference dinner.
