Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis
27 - 29 September 2017
Fisciano, ItalyTraining Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis https://elixir-iib-training.github.io/website/2017/09/27/RNA-seq-Salerno.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/training-course-on-best-practices-for-rna-seq-data-analysis Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of RNA libraries (RNA-Seq) has become increasingly common and it largely replaced microarray technology for gene expression profiling. The aim of this course is to get a deeper understanding of RNA-Seq experiments, providing a theoretical introduction to the data processing steps, together with practical sessions illustrating the use of the most popular data analysis tools. The classroom size is limited to 25 participants to optimize the learning and the interaction with the instructors. Starting from the raw sequenced data coming from different phenotypical samples (e.g disease vs healthy control samples), genes which are differentially expressed between the two conditions are determine. Some strategies are illustrated for detecting alternative splicing products, predicting novel isoforms and gene fusion events. Some methods for downstream analysis are described to give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-Seq experiments. A lecture on single-cell RNA-Seq will provide an idea of how transcriptome data from individual cells is now emerging as a powerful tool, allowing the study of cell-to-cell gene expression heterogeneity in the same tissue. 2017-09-27 09:15:00 UTC 2017-09-29 16:30:00 UTC Anna Marabotti (University of Salerno and ELIXIR-IIB Training Team, Italy), Roberto Tagliaferri (University of Salerno, Italy), Alessandro Weisz (University of Salerno, Italy), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Team and IIT, Italy), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, CNR-IBPM, Italy) Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132, Fisciano, Italy Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132 Fisciano Provincia di Salerno Italy 84084 Transcriptomics RNA splicing Sequencing Bioinformatics RNA-Seq Gene expression Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Italy firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com ELIXIR Italy PhD students and young researchers in the life science and computational biology field who are planning to use RNA-seq data and are looking for the best practices to analyze these types of data 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest NGSRNA-SeqBioinformaticsData analysisHigh Throughput Sequencing AnalysisGene Expression
OpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting
13 - 14 December 2018
Brussels, BelgiumOpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting https://openrisknet.org/events/45/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/openrisknet-nanocommons-ontology-meeting The goal of this meeting is to get a picture of the ongoing ontology activities in the toxicology area, harmonize these efforts and the developed ontologies therein, and extend the existing toxicology ontology to support OpenRiskNet and NanoCommons tasks. Part of this will be the ontological annotation of OpenRiskNet Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as used on their cloud. Other goals include extension of the ontology with missing terms (if any), potentially write up guidance documents, and annotation of data sets (possible via OpenRiskNet data APIs). 2018-12-13 13:00:00 UTC 2018-12-14 14:00:00 UTC University of Birmingham office in Brussels, Brussels, Belgium University of Birmingham office in Brussels Brussels Belgium Ontology and terminology Toxicology  NanoCommonsOpenRiskNetH2020  workshops_and_courses  risk assessmentnanosafetydata annotationservice descriptions

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
