  • FLAMES Summer School

    9 - 20 September 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    FLAMES Summer School FLAMES (Flanders Training Network for Methodology and Statistics) organizes a two-week Summer School aiming at providing practical methodological and statistical training to young researchers (particularly PhD students) from all disciplines. After the success of the FLAMES Summer School in 2013 (at KULeuven), 2014 (at UGent), 2015 (at VUB), 2016 (at UHasselt) , 2017 (at UAntwerp) and 2018 (at KULeuven) we are going to offer and even broader variety of courses from top lecturers around the world. Whether you are a complete dummy, a starter with a limited knowledge, or a more experienced researcher with a broad basic knowledge in the world of methodology and statistics, the FLAMES summer school offers courses at your level, which emphasizes everyday research practice. The program consists of 23 courses (called modules) from which participants can choose. Each module seamlessly connects theory with hands-on exercises or lab sessions, focusing on various disciplines and software packages whenever possible. The basic courses are combined in 2 recommended tracks, that directly connect to the prior knowledge of the participant. This year the FLAMES Summer School will take place at Gent University, De Sterre. 2019-09-09 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-20 17:00:00 UTC Krijgslaan 281, Gent, Belgium Krijgslaan 281 Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium Ghent University [] [] workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • de.NBI - CeBiTec Nanopore Best Practice Workshop 2019

    25 - 27 September 2019

    Bielefeld, Germany

    de.NBI - CeBiTec Nanopore Best Practice Workshop 2019 de.NBI - CeBiTec Nanopore Best Practice Workshop 2019 Bielefeld Educators: Stefan Albaum, Sebastian Jünemann, Nils Kleinbölting, Alexander Sczyrba (BiGi), Daniel Wibberg (CAU), Björn Usadel (GCBN), Christian Rückert, Jörn Kalinowski (CeBiTec) Date: 25 - 27 September 2019 Location: Bielefeld University, Universitätsstraße 25, 33615 Bielefeld Content: Aim of this workshop is to familiarise the participants with the Nanopore sequencing technology, its applications and the "Best Practice" bioinformatics workflow. The Nanopore technology have greatly facilitated the assembly of prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes. Therefore, the workshop is focused on the establishment of finalized genome sequences. This workshop will be composed of different talks including introductions to the Nanopore sequencing technology and working in the de.NBI cloud as well as different hands-on sessions. During the talks, the advantages and pitfalls of Nanopore sequencing will be discussed. The hands-on sessions will illustrate the typical workflow from the Nanopore sequencing to the final assembled genome. Learning goals: This workshop aims to teach basic skills and best practices to researchers working with Nanopore data. The final goal is to enable them to use the resulting reads for a de novo assembly. Prerequisites: This workshop is intended for PhD students and postdocs with molecular biology background in genomics. Good understanding of command line tools is a plus, but not required. Tool: Canu, Pilon, Albacore, Porechop, Metricor, Poretools Keywords: Nanopore sequencing, genome assembly, genomics 2019-09-25 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-27 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI / CeBiTec Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany Bielefeld Bielefeld Detmold Germany [] [] [] [] [] []

  • 4th de.NBI Training Course on Metagenome Analysis

    9 - 11 October 2019

    Bielefeld, Germany

    4th de.NBI Training Course on Metagenome Analysis Educators: Sebastian Jünemann (Bielefeld University), Dr. Alex Sczyrba (Bielefeld University), Sebastian Jaenicke (Giessen University), Nils Kleinboelting (Bielefeld University) Location: Bielefeld University, Universitätsstraße 25, 33615 Bielefeld, Room V6-113 Date: October the 9th to 11th, 2019 Content: The aim of this 3-day workshop will be to give students a brief overview of the tools and bioinformatics techniques available for the analysis of next generation sequence (NGS) data from microbial communities. The format will comprise a mixture of lectures and hands-on tutorials where students will process example data sets in real-time in the de.NBI cloud environment. After covering general aspects of sequence based analysis (e.g. pre-processing, quality measurements, error handling, and so on) the course is divided into two parts: targeted (16S rRNA gene amplicons) and untargeted (whole-genome shotgun; WGS) metagenome analysis. On demand, a compact introduction into the Linux operating system and the usage of the command line interface will be given upstream to the introducing part to guarantee a consistent baseline for the following lectures. The main aspects of the 16S part are the common pipeline steps beginning with pre-processing and filtering followed by OTU clustering, taxonomic classification, and different statistical measurements. Then, the new ASV/zOTU approach will be introduced followed by similar statistics and both approaches discussed with the attendants in conclusion. In the third part, advantages and disadvantages of whole metagenome sequencing will be illustrated. As WGS metagenomics has the potential to address the full spectra of genome-based issues, the focus here will be on taxonomic and functional analysis with the aid of different bioinformatic tools. Two different techniques to analyze WGS metagenome data are part of this section: (1) in the read-based approach the software solution MGX, an integrated platform for metagenome analysis and data visualization, will be demonstrated. (2) the assembly-based approach to potentially recover near-complete genome by assembling reads into contigs which are subject to binning methods to group individual contigs into genome bins. Prerequisites: - basic knowledge in microbiology and NGS-based analysis - practical experience in a Linux/Unix derivatives, the command line interface and file system required Prerequisites for the workshop plus the optional Linux introduction: - basic knowledge in microbiology and NGS-based analysis Please not that participation to this course does not depend on the actual Linux experience of the applicant. Both, experienced as well as inexperienced Linux users are encouraged to submit an application. However, the Linux introducing session in the morning of the first day is optional only for applicants fulfilling the Linux prerequisite. Application: Please send your application to (subject MG­course2019) including a short motivation, a few words about your background, your level of experience on the command line (Linux/Unix), and your experience within the field of metagenomic analysis and related bioinformatic tools. There will be no participation fee, yet travel and accommodation expenses need to be paid by the participants. 2019-10-09 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany Bielefeld Bielefeld Detmold Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] metagenomics

  • A tour of machine learning: classification

    13 - 14 January 2020

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    A tour of machine learning: classification Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest. 2020-01-13 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-14 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
