  • Open Targets Genetics at ESHG

    15 June 2019

    Sweden

    Open Targets Genetics at ESHG https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-at-eshg In this workshop, we will introduce Open Targets Genetics Portal as part of the Open Targets ecosystem, highlighting variant-centric statistical evidence for prioritizing candidate causal variants at trait-associated loci, and identifying potential drug targets. We will present POSTGAP, a pipeline which merges genetic associations curated from literature with functional genomics, epigenetic and expression data (e.g., eQTL, promoter capture Hi-C, DNase hypersensitivity sites, regulatory elements) to resolve association signals at a locus and link each variant to its target gene(s) using a single evidence score. The portal also incorporates pre-computed fine-mapping at trait-associated loci across hundreds of UK Biobank phenotypes as well as cross-trait colocalization, furthering drug repurposing opportunities. This workshop will enable you to effectively use Open Targets Genetics to gain biological insight, prioritize genes, and inform target decision-making. Intended Audience: Attendees interested in the translational application of genetics and genomics with an emphasis on the identification of target genes of trait-associated loci, drug target identification, prioritisation and repurposing. Participants should bring their laptops for exploration of the Open Targets Genetics Portal in situ. 2019-06-15 09:00:00 UTC 2019-06-15 00:00:00 UTC Gothenburg, Sweden Gothenburg Sweden [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Open Targets

    Milan, Italy

    Elixir node event
    Genome assembly and annotation course 5 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: gianluca.dellavedova@unimib.it Questions about the course agenda: henrik.lantz@nbis.se National Research Council of ItalyINRANBIS - National Bioinformatics Infrastructure SwedenELIXIR EXCELERATE life scientistsResearchersPhD students 24 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Genomics AssemblyTrainingeLearningEeLP
