  • ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Genomics and Associated Data in National Healthcare Initiatives

    5 - 6 March 2019


    ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Genomics and Associated Data in National Healthcare Initiatives This free ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum with a focus on Genomics and Associated Data in National Healthcare Initiatives in Stockholm is open to researchers working in the personalised medicine sector, large and small companies that develop services for healthcare systems or are users of genomics and/or associated data, as well as people involved in national healthcare initiatives and anyone else who is interested in learning more about data-driven innovation in the healthcare sector. It aims to inform about ELIXIR resources and create a space to network for industry and academia. In this lunch-to-lunch event, attendees will be immersed in a world of data-driven innovation, illustrated through talks. With a mix of high-level keynote speakers and interactive sessions, this event will allow you to discuss and interact with other companies and ELIXIR partners. A specific session with Flash Talks, will give new companies the chance to introduce their work to a broad audience.   ELIXIR Beacon Workshop  The Human Data Community is working with the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health to provide a simple way to make data discoverable through “Beacons” ( ). You can query the lightweight metadata provided by a data resource (a 'beacon') to ask questions like 'Does this dataset have genomes with this allele at that position?' and get a 'Yes' or 'No' answer. This workshop will show examples of current Beacon users and give you hands on experience on how to light a “Beacon” in your company/research institute.     Testimonials "ELIXIR is a very interesting initiative for companies like HPE because the members are top notch in their environment. It helps us to get an idea about the user requirements on one side and on the other to better understand their challenges. After the ELIXIR event we have already two companies that have a huge demand in faster, but affordable compute platforms. So, we met and discussed next steps of engagement. They have a problem and we have the tools to support them". Andreas Hausmann, HPE Aruba "I really enjoyed the ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum in Frankfurt! What if IT would be an enabler for innovation and open your mind on new questions!"

  • Workshop at ESHG

    15 June 2019


    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
