    Elixir node event
    At The Forefront Of Plant Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB conferences@vib.be [] Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences [] plantbiologygenomics

  • 4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium

    Elixir node event
    4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/4th-plant-protease-and-programmed-cell-death-symposium After three successful conferences on Plant Proteases and Programmed Cell Death organized in Hemavan, Sweden (2011); Barcelona, Spain (2013); and Oxford, UK (2016), it is our pleasure to host the fourth meeting in the beautiful medieval town of Ghent, Belgium. The roles of proteases in cell death, immunity, and developmental processes in plants have received increasing attention over the past years. On the one hand, proteases exert a key regulatory level of posttranslational modification on their substrates. On the other hand, proteolytic cascades are involved in household functions, as well as responsible for point-of-no-return decisions during developmentally or environmentally controlled programmed cell death. Despite their importance, however, we still know little about the functions and mode-of-actions of individual plant proteases. Over the past years, several research groups have tackled the functional characterization of plant proteases from different angles. Some laboratories are advancing technology development, others focus on biological processes that depend on protease activities, while again others elucidate the biochemistry of specific protease families. The aim of our meeting is to bring researchers of these different research directions together to discuss the latest developments and concepts in the field of plant proteases and programmed cell death. 2018-09-11 15:00:00 UTC 2018-09-13 22:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen, Gent, Belgium Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium Plant biology [] Moritz Nowack 0032 9 331 38 00 moritz.nowack@vib.be [] [] [] [] plant proteaseplant cell deathplantsprotease

    Gent, Belgium

    29th Joint Glycobiology meeting 2018 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/29th-joint-glycobiology-meeting-2018 Theme of the conference Glycobiology is the study of complex carbohydrates in biological and biotechnological context. This is a very broad field that is bound by common methodologies to analyze glycoconjugate structures, to synthesize these structures and to understand their myriad roles in biological systems. The field of glycobiology is growing fast, especially since it was shown that carbohydrate interactions play an important role in many biological processes and are of great interest for biomedical and biomolecular research, and the applications emerging from it. Objective of the conference This conference is organized annually by the working groups on glycobiology of the national associations for biochemistry and molecular biology of Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and France. In 2018, the 29th edition of the Joint Glycobiology Meeting will be organized in Belgium. The main goal of the conference is to give an opportunity to young researchers to present their glycobiology work to colleagues and principal investigators. Furthermore, a number of distinguished keynote speakers is invited to present their recent data and the state-of-the-art technology in their field of expertise. The meeting provides ample opportunities for informal discussions between all the attendees, to foster new ideas for research and possibilities for collaborations.

  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

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 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Plant Science for Climate Emergency

    7 - 8 June 2021

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Plant Science for Climate Emergency https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency Climate change is one of the most serious threats humanity has ever faced. Developing crops that are more resilient to rapidly changing and harsher environments will be crucial for tomorrow’s food production. Green biotechnology offers solutions to maintain high food productivity while preserving the earth’s valuable ecosystems. In addition, plants may also play an important role in mitigating the rising levels of greenhouse gases. This VIB conference ‘Plant Science for Climate Emergency’ aims at reviewing current research on adapting plants to climate change as well as on using plants for mitigating the accumulation of greenhouse gasses. Twenty leaders in plant biotechnology will present the latest developments in sessions focused on drought tolerance, tolerance to high temperatures, salt and flooding tolerance, the effects of climate change on defense systems against insects and pathogens, carbon capturing plants, crop engineering and improvement, nitrogen use efficiency, and much more. Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during the poster sessions, the reception, and the conference dinner.
