Biomolecular data mining: a hands-on training
11 - 13 September 2017
Antwerpen, BelgiumBiomolecular data mining: a hands-on training http://www.biomina.be/BioMolDM2017 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/biomolecular-data-mining-a-hands-on-training This course aims to introduce the core principles and biomedical applications of different data mining and machine learning techniques in a hands-on manner. It will tackle both unsupervised (clustering, frequent pattern mining, data projection) and supervised (classification) techniques. The methods that will be seen include hierarchical clustering, k- means clustering, item set mining, association rule mining, principle component analysis, support vector machines, random forests, bayesian networks and artificial neural networks. Attendees will be introduced to the basic operations of these data mining techniques, with a focus on the practical use and interpretation of these procedures rather than the mathematical formulas. In addition, attendants will be introduced to some important data processing and performance evaluation methods related to these data mining techniques. The software used in this course will be R. The course itself will consist of 50% theory lessons, 40% hands-on practicals and 10% application case studies. Organised by biomina: Dr. Pieter Meysman Prof. dr.

Leuven, BelgiumApplied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition) https://vibconferences.be/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-3rd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-3rd-edition Bioinformatics has quickly become an integral part of life sciences research by enabling innovative computational approaches in an increasingly data-dense environment. Inspired by the sold-out editions in 2016 and 2018, VIB (a non-profit life sciences research institute) is organizing this third edition to highlight recent developments in bioinformatics research, and to showcase its impact in medical, agricultural, and biotechnological research. Nationally and internationally renowned speakers will present recent scientific findings in applied bioinformatics. They will shed light on the future perspectives of their research in the following plenary sessions: - Microbial & plant genomics: from simple to complex - Structural bioinformatics and proteomics - Data integration, machine learning and networks - Single cell bioinformatics Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during poster sessions and the conference dinner. ### Speaker line-up: - Roser Vento, Sanger Institute, UK - Klaus Mayer, Helmholtz Zentrum München, DE - Thijs Ettema, Wageningen University, NL - Rohit Pappu, Washington University, US - Patrick Aloy, Structural Bioinformatics Lab, IRB Barcelona, ES - Helen Parkinson, EMBL-EBI, UK - Nick Loman, University of Birmingham, UK - Daifeng Wang, Stony Brook University, US - Aedin Culhane, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, US - Sushmita Roy, Dept. of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin, US - Olga Vitek, Northeastern University, US - Nikolai Slavov, Northeastern University, US - Evangelia Petsalaki, EMBL-EBI, UK - Ashley Lu, VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Sofia Forslund, Experimental and Clinical Research Centre (ECRC, a joint venture of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine and the Charité University Hospital), DE - Laurent Gatto, De Duve Institute – UC Louvain, BE - Erik Garrison, UC Santa Cruz, US ### Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros.

Oeiras, PortugalMachine Learning http://biodata.pt https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/machine-learning With the rise in high-throughput sequencing technologies, the volume of omics data has grown exponentially in recent times and a major issue is to mine useful knowledge from these data which are also heterogeneous in nature. Machine learning (ML) is a discipline in which computers perform automated learning without being programmed explicitly and assist humans to make sense of large and complex data sets. The analysis of complex high-volume data is not trivial and classical tools cannot be used to explore their full potential. Machine learning can thus be very useful in mining large omics datasets to uncover new insights that can advance the field of bioinformatics. This 3 day course will introduce participants to the machine learning taxonomy and the applications of common machine learning algorithms to omics data. The course will cover the common methods being used to analyse different omics data sets by providing a practical context through the use of basic but widely used R libraries. The course will comprise a number of hands-on exercises and challenges where the participants will acquire a first understanding of the standard ML processes, as well as the practical skills in applying them on familiar problems and publicly available real-world data sets.
