Faro, PortugalZebrafish as a Model in Biomedicine and Study of Human Diseases - 3rd Edition http://att.ccmar.ualg.pt/zebrafish_2017/index.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/zebrafish-as-a-model-in-biomedicine-and-study-of-human-diseases-3rd-edition This course was designed to provide basic knowledge on the use of the biological model zebrafish with main emphasis on its use in the context of the study of human diseases and biomedical sciences. Introduction to genetic manipulation and production of transgenic lines and "knock-out". It is intended to transfer skills for manipulation and use of the zebrafish in genetic manipulation techniques, applications of transgenics and mutants for study of phenotypes of interest, microinjection and studies of tissue regeneration. 2017-04-21 09:00:00 UTC 2017-04-21 18:00:00 UTC Paulo Gavaia University of the Algarve, Campus do Gambelas, Gambelas, Faro, Faro, Portugal University of the Algarve, Campus do Gambelas, Gambelas, Faro Faro Portugal Human disease Model organisms CCMAR, Centre for Marine Sciences Paulo Gavaia - email@example.com   workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served zebrafishhuman diseasebiomedicinetransgenic lines
Advanced Scientific Programming in Python
14 - 21 January 2018
Melbourne, AustraliaAdvanced Scientific Programming in Python https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/news/apply-aspp-2018/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-scientific-programming-in-python Applications are now open for this international school being held in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. The Advanced Scientific Programming in Python (ASPP) summer school has had 10 extremely successful iterations in Europe (https://python.g-node.org/archives). Now, thanks to funding from the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), Melbourne is hosting the first ASPP workshop focussed on the Asia Pacific region. 2018-01-14 17:51:00 UTC 2018-01-21 17:51:00 UTC Juan Nunez-Iglesias, Melbourne Bioinformatics University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia University of Melbourne Melbourne Australia Imaging Neurobiology Informatics University of Melbourne firstname.lastname@example.org INCF Life Science Researcherspost-docsPhD studentsMaster studentsbioinformaticians workshops_and_courses  Pythonneurosciencesbioinformatics
International Meeting on Optical Biosensors
15 - 17 November 2018
Ghent, BelgiumInternational Meeting on Optical Biosensors https://vibconferences.be/event/international-meeting-on-optical-biosensors https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-meeting-on-optical-biosensors Biological processes show extreme complexity orchestrated both in space and time. To face this complexity, it has been necessary, as pointed out by R.Y. Tsien in his lecture "Unlocking Cell Secrets with Light Beams and Molecular Spies" (Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2002), to develop fluorescent spies in order to analyze, quantify in real time and decrypt very sophisticated cellular mechanisms. The recent explosion of fluorescent biosensors development opens a new field of investigation by allowing the analysis of extremely specific biological events at the level of cellular organelles, individual cells, tissues and even entire living organisms in physiological and pathological conditions. The development and the use of these tools require solving a number of conceptual, experimental and technological problems concerning both the biosensors themselves and the tools to follow them. Equally important, a range of new developments including optogenetic and optochemical tools allow systematic perturbation of biochemical processes while they are read out by optical biosensors. The purpose of this conference is to gather and consolidate the expertise in the field of biosensors and to promote the reflection and the exchange of information so as to accelerate the development of these new dynamic imaging approaches in all areas of biology and biomedical sciences. • Early Bird: 2 October 2018 • Late Registration: 31 October 2018 • Abstract deadline: 30 June 2018 2018-11-15 09:00:00 UTC 2018-11-17 17:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, 'Fiers-Schell-Van Montagu' building, Ghent, Belgium VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research, 'Fiers-Schell-Van Montagu' building Ghent Belgium 9052 Imaging  Practical questions: VIB conferences team +32 9 244 66 11 email@example.com   meetings_and_conferencesreceptions_and_networking  biosensorsoptical biosensorsImaging
Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019
28 - 29 November 2019
Barcelona, SpainAdvances in Computational Biology Conference 2019 https://www.iscb.org/advcompbio2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advances-in-computational-biology-conference-2019 The first **Advances in Computational Biology conference – _Fostering collaboration among women scientists_** will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors. One of the main purposes of the conference is to **visualize and promote the research done by women scientists** and for this reason, all presenters will be women, although the conference is open to everyone. We want to create a space to foster collaborations between scientists, providing an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build research networks. Topics included: - **Learning from Biological Sequences**: population genomics, evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence analysis - **When Computational Biology meets Medicine**: biomedical applications, mutational landscapes, clinical genomics - **Machines Speeding up Research**: high performance computing, machine learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic simulations and algorithm development Key dates: - Open registration: May 6th, 2019 - Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019 - **Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019** - Early bird registration deadline: September 15th, 2019 - Registration deadline: November 1st, 2019 - AdvCompBio Conference: November 28th - 29th, 2019 The programme will include poster and oral presentations, as well as keynotes from leading scientists in the computational biology and high-performance computing fields. The keynote speakers of the conference are: **Christine Orengo**, group leader of Orengo Group at University College London, **Natasa Przulj**, group leader of the Life Sciences – Integrative Computational Network Biology at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and **Marie-Christine Sawley**, director of the Exascale Lab at Intel. The confirmed chairs of the conference are: **Alison Kennedy**, director of the STFC Hartree Centre, **Janet Kelso**, group leader of the Minerva Research Group for Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and **Nuria Lopez-Bigas**, leader of the Biomedical Genomics Research Group at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to interact personally with female leaders in the fields of IT, academic research and politics that support the conference. The conference is organised by the Bioinfo4Women programme from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) with the collaboration of IMIM-UPF Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics (GRIB), the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It is an affiliate conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). 2019-11-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-29 17:00:00 UTC La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia Barcelona Barcelona Spain Imaging Machine learning Computational biology Computer science Biomedical science Sequence analysis Transcriptomics Evolutionary biology Population genomics Omics Systems biology Bioinformatics   ResearchersPhD studentsPostdoctoral studentsComputer scienceComputational biologistsbioinformaticians meetings_and_conferences  HPCBioinformaticsComputational BiologyArtificial IntelligenceGenomicsTranscriptomicsSystems biologyPopulation GenomicsEvolutinary genomicsSequence Analysisbiomedical applicationsmutational landscapesclinical genomicsImagingdynamic simulationsalgorithmsmachine learning
