Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery
13 - 17 May 2019
Bled, SloveniaWorkshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery http://highcontent.ijs.si 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 email@example.com 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
Genome assembly and annotation course 5
1 - 5 July 2019
Milan, ItalyGenome assembly and annotation course 5 https://elixir.mf.uni-lj.si/course/view.php?id=45 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-assembly-and-annotation-course-5 A **genome assembly and annotation course** will take place on **July 1-5, 2019** in **Milan, Italy**, hosted by the Italian ELIXIR Node in cooperation with other ELIXIR nodes that are involved in the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE task 10.3 “Capacity Building in Genome Assembly and Annotation”. Some of the most experienced assembly and annotation experts in Europe will be teaching at the course. The course is aimed at researchers interested in learning more about genome assembly and annotation. It will include information useful for both the beginner and the more advanced user. We will start by introducing general concepts and then continue with a step-by-step description of all major components of a genome assembly and annotation workflow, from raw data all the way to a final assembled and annotated genome. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using Unix/Linux command line. After the course, the participants will have knowledge of commonly used assembly practices and tools. They will be able to run assembly and annotation projects on their own. **Prerequisites:** - **Working knowledge of Unix/Linux command line** - **As part of the course agenda, course participants will prepare a short presentation about their own projects.** Optionally, they may also bring their own data. **Instructions how to register for the course are available on the [ELIXIR-SI eLearning Platform (EELP)](https://elixir.mf.uni-lj.si/course/view.php?id=45).** You will be able to access the course after you register and your registration is approved by the course organizers. 2019-07-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-07-05 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Italy University of Milano-Bicocca, Building U7, Lab 715, Milan, Italy University of Milano-Bicocca, Building U7, Lab 715 Milan Città Metropolitana di Milano Italy Genomics University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy General questions: firstname.lastname@example.org Questions about the course agenda: email@example.com National Research Council of ItalyINRANBIS - National Bioinformatics Infrastructure SwedenELIXIR EXCELERATE life scientistsResearchersPhD students 24 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Genomics AssemblyTrainingeLearningEeLP
