Analysis of 16S rRNA metagenomic experiments, online
14 - 16 June 2021
Leuven, BelgiumAnalysis of 16S rRNA metagenomic experiments, online https://training.vib.be/product/323 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-16s-rrna-metagenomic-experiments-online Processing and statistical analysis of 16S rRNA metagenomic experiments using R & Lotus pipeline. The following analytical steps from raw data to communicable results will be on the program: Metagenomic experiment planning, execution and analysis Analyzing amplicon sequencing data with up-to-date tools and how to increase the quality of ASVs and OTUs, when to use what technique Post-clustering of ASVs to avoid intra-genomic ASV false-positives Working with low-biomass experiments, removing exogenous contamination in several scenarios Numerical ecology focused analysis workflow for both metagenomic and amplicon sequencing based studies Analysis of alpha/beta diversity Univariate statistics to identify species enriched in sample groups Multivariate statistics and visualization to identify clusters of samples Assessing microbial communities based on ecological principles and species distributions 2021-06-14 09:00:00 UTC 2021-06-16 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010      
Tech Transfer Course
23 - 27 August 2021
Zwijnaarde, BelgiumTech Transfer Course https://training.vib.be/product/342 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55a9b56b-9f9c-47ee-8646-b194d3b0888f This technology transfer course will give you a flavour of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and how to protect your invention? What steps are necessary to commercialize your work? What does it take to set up a spin-off company? Different ways of turning your research into value for society. Supported by speakers from companies and investment firms, VIB’s Innovation & Business Team will go into detail on real life valorisation approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on your favourite topic. We will go through 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, valorisation manager, and company representative. On top of that, you will be introduced to the various stages of setting up a start-up company. We warmly invite participants to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, so we can select a number of topics for the Newco pitching exercise which will be held in small teams. We will invite you to submit your abstract in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2021-08-23 09:00:00 UTC 2021-08-27 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052      
Introduction to the analysis of NGS data, online
30 September - 14 October 2021
Leuven, BelgiumIntroduction to the analysis of NGS data, online https://training.vib.be/product/346 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-the-analysis-of-ngs-data-online-fe44ff0a-a9a4-4d39-b81b-2648bbb12681 This training is an introduction to a series of trainings on the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data. This training is intended for newbies to the field and will teach them all background knowledge required to successfully complete the advanced NGS analysis trainings. To this end the training will give an overview of: - The Illumina platform - NGS data formats and file handling - Quality control of NGS data - Mapping of NGS data - Supporting IT: Galaxy platform 2021-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2021-10-14 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010
