    Elixir node event
    PDA17 Proteomics Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/proteomics-data-analysis    IMPORTANT DATES for this Course   Deadline for applications: Feb 25th 2017 (New)   Course date: March 6th - March 10th 2017 Candidates with adequate profile will be accepted in the next 72 hours after the application until we reach 20 participants. Course description Mass spectrometry based proteomic experiments generate ever larger datasets and, as a consequence, complex data interpretation challenges. In this course, the concepts and methods required to tackle these challenges will be introduced, covering both protein identification and quantification. The core focus will be on shotgun proteomics data. Quantification through isobaric labels (iTRAQ, TMT) and label-free precursor peptide (MS1) ion intensities will also be introduced. The course will rely exclusively on free and user-friendly software, all of which can be directly applied in your lab upon your return from the course. An introduction to available online resources and repositories will also be given. Here you will see how to link the results from proteomic experiments with external data to conduct pathway, gene ontology and interaction analyses. In the course, you will also learn how to submit data to the ProteomeXchange online repositories, and how to browse and reprocess publicly available data from these repositories. The course will provide a solid basis for beginners, but also new perspectives to those already familiar with standard data interpretation procedures in proteomics. Note: this is a highly interactive course. It requires that the participants interact with each other and with the course instructors, in order to reach the learning outcomes in full. Course Pre-requisites The participants should have a basic knowledge about mass spectrometry based proteomics. Experience in analyzing proteomics data is an advantage, but not mandatory. The course does not require advanced computer skills. 2017-03-06 09:30:00 UTC 2017-03-06 09:30:00 UTC Pedro Fernandes Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Mass spectrometry Proteomics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] [] 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []

    PGDH17 Population Genetics and Demographic History: model-based approaches https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/pgdh17-population-genetics-and-demographic-history    IMPORTANT DATES for this Course    Deadline for applications: Mar 6th 2017 (New)    Course date: March 13th - March 17th 2017 Candidates with adequate profile will be accepted in the next 72 hours after the application until we reach 20 participants. Course description Genetic and genomic data are increasingly used by ecologists and evolutionary biologists in general. It has thus become important for many biologists with different levels of experience to produce and analyse genetic (and genomic) data. In this course we will take a practical approach to the analysis of genetic and genomic data, but we will also provide some of the theoretical background required to understand the outputs of the software used. This course will be organised so as to mix lectures where important notions are introduced with practicals where freely available software will be used. While this will not be the focus of the course, we will also introduce and discuss genealogical (coalescent-based) simulation methods and those based on forward-in-time simulations. Altogether this will allow to discuss the potentialities and limitations of the tools available to the community. In this five-day course we will introduce the main concepts that underlie many of the models that are frequently used in population genetics. We will focus on the importance of demographic history (e.g. effective sizes and migration patterns) in shaping genetic data. We will go through the basic notions that are central to population genetics, insisting particularly on the statistics used to measure genetic diversity and population differentiation. The course will also cover a short introduction to coalescent theory, Bayesian inference in population genetics and data simulation. We will also introduce two methods that have been recently developed to analyse genomic data. The PSMC of Li and Durbin reconstructs the demographic history of a species or population with the genome of a single individual. The Rehh package is an R implementation of the Extended Haplotype Homozygosity (EHH) test for selective sweeps and looks for signals of selection based on the analysis of genomic regions. Most theory will be put into practice in practical sessions, analyzing real and/or simulated datasets. In these sessions, we will look at measures of genetic diversity and differentiation and use methods to infer demographic history. We will learn how to perform coalescent simulations of genetic/genomic data (using SPAms and ms). We will also show how to simulated data for PSMC analyses. This will allow users to compare the PSMC obtained with real data to those obtained for the models they used. We will also look at how habitat fragmentation can be simulated using an in-house program. Some exercises will make use of R scripts (R being a freely available statistical program). Basic R knowledge is a pre-requisite but we will provide a short introduction to R. The R statistical package is a very powerful tool to analyse data outputs from many population genetics software, and can also be used to simulate genetic data under simple demographic scenarios. Course Pre-requisites Basic molecular population genetics and molecular ecology. Basic R knowldedge. Basic knowledge of genomic data. 2017-03-13 09:30:00 UTC 2017-03-13 09:30:00 UTC Pedro Fernandes Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Genomics Population genetics [] bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] [] 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []

    Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-on-high-content-imaging-and-data-science-for-virtual-screening-and-drug-discovery High-throughput phenotypic screening, based on high-content imaging, is increasingly often used as a tool for drug discovery. Compound screens are used to find hits that produce the desired phenotypes in relevant cellular assays. Genomic screens are used to elucidate the underlying molecular pathways and identify suitable drug targets. Since high-content screening produces a lot of data, data science approaches such as statistics, machine learning and neural networks can help interpret the collected data. Just as virtual screening can be performed in chemoinformatics (learning predictive models for QSAR - quantitative structure-activity relations) from data obtained through compound screens, similar approaches can be taken in the context of high-throughput phenotypic screening. This will be the first event of its kind in the region of Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. The event will bring together a group of experts covering different topics in the fields of high-content screening, image analysis, chemoinformatics and machine learning. This will allow graduate students and researchers from both academia and industry to familiarize themselves with these cutting-edge topics. The workshop will have an impact on both the academic and industrial sector in the region (e.g. biotech companies of all sizes). The workshop is part of the INTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN (Big Data and Disease Models: A Cross- border Platform for Validated Biotech Industry Kits), which brings together experts on the topic from academia and industry. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 18:00:00 UTC Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia, Bled, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia Bled Gorenjska Slovenia SI-4260 Drug discovery Genomics Rikli Balance Hotel elixir@mf.uni-lj.si European UnionINTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN PhD studentsGraduate studentsResearchersBusiness EntrepreneursBiotechnology CompaniesPharmaceutical Industry workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest INTERREGPhenotypic screeningData analysisVirtual ScreeningHigh-content imaging

Altogether this will allow to discuss the potentialities and limitations of the tools available to the community. In this five-day course we will introduce the main concepts that underlie many of the models that are frequently used in population genetics. We will focus on the importance of demographic history (e.g. effective sizes and migration patterns) in shaping genetic data. We will go through the basic notions that are central to population genetics, insisting particularly on the statistics used to measure genetic diversity and population differentiation. The course will also cover a short introduction to coalescent theory, Bayesian inference in population genetics and data simulation. We will also introduce methods that have been recently developed to analyse genomic data such as the PSMC method of Li and Durbin that reconstructs the demographic history of a species or population with the genome of a single individual. Most theory will be put into practice in practical sessions, analyzing real and/or simulated datasets. In these sessions, we will look at measures of genetic diversity and differentiation and use methods to infer demographic history. We will learn how to perform coalescent simulations of genetic/genomic data (using mainly Richard Hudson's ms program). We will also show how to simulate data for PSMC analyses. This will allow users to compare the PSMC obtained with real data to those obtained for the models they used. We will also look at how habitat fragmentation can be simulated using an in-house program. Some exercises will make use of R scripts (R being a freely available statistical program). Basic R knowledge is a pre-requisite but we will provide a short introduction to R. The R statistical package is a very powerful tool to analyse data outputs from many population genetics software, and can also be used to simulate genetic data under simple demographic scenarios. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 17:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Instituto Gulbenkian de CiênciaBiodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] Basic molecular population genetics and molecular ecology.

  • Computational PANGenomics

    9 - 13 September 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Computational PANGenomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/computational-pangenomics Reference genomes have become central to bioinformatics approaches, and form the core of standard analyses using contemporary sequencing data. However, the use of linear reference genomes, which provide the sequence of one representative genome for a species, is increasingly becoming a limitation as the number of sequenced genomes grows. In particular, they tend to bias us away from the observation of variation in the genomes we study. A general solution to this problem is to use a pangenome that incorporates both sequence and variation from many individuals as our reference system. This pangenome is naturally modelled as a graph with annotations and can provide all the functionality traditionally provided by linear reference genomes. Unlike linear reference genomes, a pangenome readily incorporates both small and large variation, allowing bias-free genotyping at known alleles. In this course, we will explore the use of modern bioinformatic tools that allow researchers to use pangenomes as their reference system when engaging in studies of organisms of all types. Such techniques will aid any researcher working on organisms of high genetic diversity or on organisms lacking a high-quality reference genome. This course targets all researchers interested in learning about an exciting paradigm shift in computational genomics. 2019-09-09 09:30:00 UTC 2019-09-13 17:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european project bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] This course is oriented towards biologists and bioinformaticians.
