    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

    11 - 13 September 2018

    Gent, Belgium

    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

  • 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!

  • 4th de.NBI Training Course on Metagenome Analysis

    9 - 11 October 2019

    Bielefeld, Germany

    4th de.NBI Training Course on Metagenome Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/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 denbi-courses@cebitec.uni-bielefeld.de (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 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification-b217275f-0a31-4994-b5c6-be3d999cc9f7 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 [] [] [] [] [] []

Use GenePattern and open source software to evaluate each step of a classical NGS variant workflow and feel the complexity of the task. Quickly compare the obtained results with gold standard public data The skills acquired during this session should allow participants understand what variant calling implies. Participants with experience in command line can do the workflow using command line tools. 2020-01-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-21 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
