Big data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences
24 May 2017
Diepenbeek, BelgiumBig data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences https://www.vscentrum.be/en/education-and-trainings/detail/data-science--life-sciences-24052017 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-high-performance-computing-in-life-sciences Current pharmaceutical research and development generates vast amounts of data. These big data come from high content screens, magnetic resonance imaging, omics and diagnostic patient monitoring devices. Together with this increasing magnitude of databases there is an associated increase in the time required to execute data processing. With the increasing complexity of methodology and new scientific insights, the existing computational algorithms and infrastructure are unlikely to cope with the challenges soon. Complex statistical models will push the limits of the current algorithms and implementations. To be able to face the challenges of the near future increased performance both at the algorithmic and software/hardware levels are deemed crucial. Case studies on drug development will be given. One important project that is part of a collaboration of academic and industrial partners is conducting research on the computational requirements for disease modeling of Type II Diabetes as part of the ExaScience project (www.exascience.com). Appropriate use of computing infrastructure and high performance computing software makes it possible to use these new technologies in a time-constrained setting. This is a requirement when the disease models are used to make decisions within hours during the interim analyses of clinical trials with adaptive experimental designs. Besides this project other real-life cases presented include genomics, microbiome and brain imaging.

Deep learning application in the life sciences
29 May 2017
Diepenbeek, BelgiumDeep learning application in the life sciences https://www.vscentrum.be/en/education-and-trainings/detail/data-science--life-sciences-29052017 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-application-in-the-life-sciences Deep learning has made headlines over the last couple of years, with applications in various domains. This approach has a lot of potential in life sciences. As datasets in life sciences increase in size there is a growing need for techniques that can fully take advantage of them. The advent of Big Data alongside an exponential increase in computing power has led to the re-emergence of neural networks (now mostly referred to as “Deep Learning”). These techniques flourish when given enough data, which makes them ideal for the interpretation of massive datasets. In this talk, we provide an introduction to Deep Learning as well as some examples of how it is being applied in the context of life sciences. Speakers: Jan Yperman and dr. Thijs Becker 2017-05-29 09:00:00 UTC 2017-05-29 00:00:00 UTC Hasselt University room C20 building D, Diepenbeek, Belgium Hasselt University room C20 building D Diepenbeek Belgium Campus      
Microbiome Data Analysis Workshop
20 - 23 April 2020
Diepenbeek, BelgiumMicrobiome Data Analysis Workshop https://mdawo.meetinghand.com/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/microbiome-data-analysis-workshop We cordially invite you to our first Microbiome Data Analyses Workshop! This event will be held April, 20-23 2020, at Hasselt University. The international workshop is organised jointly by the Data Sciences Institute and Center for Environmental Sciences. The MDAW brings leading scientists to UHasselt to discuss their newest developments, statistical tools, and latest findings in the rapidly expanding field of microbiome data analyses and high-throughput sequencing. This event is held to encourage PhD students and Postdocs dealing with large and complicated, highly dimensional microbiome datasets, to get an overview of the current state-of-the art in amplicon sequence data analyses, teached in lectures and hands-on sessions. Additionally, this workshop aims to promote scientific networking and potential research collaborations at both national and international levels. For more details and registration, please read further below. We are looking forward to meeting you at the 1st Microbiome Data Analyses Workshop! On behalf of the organizing committee, Professor Dr. Olivier Thas, dr. Sofie Thijs, dr. Stefanie Kerkhofs 2020-04-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-04-23 17:00:00 UTC UHasselt Data Sciences Institute and Center for Environmental Sciences UHasselt Diepenbeek gebouw D, Agoralaan, Diepenbeek, Belgium UHasselt Diepenbeek gebouw D, Agoralaan Diepenbeek Limburg Belgium  dr.
