What kind of preprocessing of the data is required for MOFA? How to train MOFA on a multi-omic data set? How to interpret the MOFA factors by their loadings, using gene set enrichment or sample ordination? How to use MOFA for downstream analyses including regression, classification or clustering? How to impute missing values with MOFA? How to select the number of factors and compare different MOFA fits? 2020-06-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-06-09 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
  • Tech Transfer Course

    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55fa806f-9e39-49d7-87ed-9af27cbce588 In short, the technology transfer course is designed to give you an idea of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and what to do to protect your invention; What steps are necessary to commercialize your work; The VIB-approach to starting innovative companies, and Different ways of turning your research into value for society. In the annual Technology Transfer course, the VIB Innovation & Business Team, supported by external speakers from industry, will go into detail on the practicalities of real life valorization approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on the topics for the pitch exercise. We will go through the term sheets and contracts that shape the framework of industrial collaborations and investments. We will have a lively case study to highlight the potentially complex relationships between scientist, Innovation & Businessmanager and company representative, and give an overview of the various stages of starting a new venture. If you want to participate, you will be asked to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, for selection of topics for the Newco pitching exercise (in groups). More information will follow via email when we receive your registration. Please note that who submits an abstract will get priority to attend the course. Submitting your abstract will be possible on the website in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2020-08-24 09:00:00 UTC 2020-08-28 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
  • A tour of machine learning: classification

    A tour of machine learning: classification https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification-67c1e87f-922a-469a-8aaa-f93f3b51b01b 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. 2020-08-31 09:00:00 UTC 2020-09-01 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
