Padova, ItalyComputational approaches to the study of protein interactions and rational drug design https://elixir-iib-training.github.io/website/2017/04/10/protein-interactions-padova.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/computational-approaches-to-the-study-of-protein-interactions-and-rational-drug-design In this workshop, participants will familiarise with docking approaches to the study of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) and protein-small molecule interactions. Irreversible binders design using molecular docking and computational methods to rational drug design will be also described, as well as the functional role of the intrinsically disordered proteins. The Plenary lectures of N. Davey (10.02.2017), A. Bonvin, S. Forli and S. Moro (11.02.2017) will be open and free to everyone but require application. Practical sessions are limited to 30 participants. On the afternoon of day 3, participants can bring their own data (e.g. proteins they want to study interactions for). They will be split in groups based on the type of system they want to study (i.e protein-protein, protein-small ligand interactions or virtual screening) and will analyse it assisted by A. Bonvin and S. Forli. 2017-04-10 14:00:00 UTC 2017-04-14 13:00:00 UTC Allegra Via, Lisanna Paladin, Marco Carraro Campus di Biologia e Biomedicina “Fiore di Botta”, University of Padova, Via del Pescarotto, 8, Padova, Italy Campus di Biologia e Biomedicina “Fiore di Botta”, University of Padova, Via del Pescarotto, 8 Padova Provincia di Padova Italy Protein-protein interactions Protein-protein interactions Protein-ligand interactions Protein-ligand interactions Protein interactions Medicinal chemistry University of Padova, Italy firstname.lastname@example.org ELIXIR Italy Structural biologistsBioinformaticians 30 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Bioinformaticsprotein structureDrug designDockingProtein interactions

Training course on Python for Life Scientists
11 - 15 September 2017
Roma, ItalyTraining course on Python for Life Scientists https://elixir-iib-training.github.io/website/2017/09/11/Python-Roma.html https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/training-course-on-python-for-life-scientists Python is an object-oriented programming language that is ideal for biological data analysis. The course will start from zero knowledge, and will introduce the participants to all the basic concepts of Python such as calculating, organizing data, reading and writing files, program logic and writing larger programs. All the examples and practical sessions will focus on solving biological problems. In particular the sessions will cover: - working with DNA and protein sequences - data retrieval from files and their manipulation - running applications, such as BLAST, locally and from a script - finding motifs in sequence - parsing common file formats (Uniprot, GenBank, PDB) - ways to find and correct program errors. The course will be highly interactive and the students will continuously put theory into practice while learning. Basic Unix/Linux skills will be provided at the beginning of the course. 2017-09-11 09:00:00 UTC 2017-09-15 18:00:00 UTC Veronica Morea (CNR-IBPM, Rome, Italy), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, CNR-IBPM, Italy), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Team, IIT@Sapienza, Italy) Dipartimento di Scienze Biochimiche - Alessandro Rossi Fanelli, 332, Viale Regina Elena, Roma, Italy Dipartimento di Scienze Biochimiche - Alessandro Rossi Fanelli, 332, Viale Regina Elena Roma Città Metropolitana di Roma Italy 00185 Computer science Bioinformatics Computational biology Sapienza University of Rome email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org ELIXIR Italy BiologistsBioinformatics beginners 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest Python for BiologistsbioinformaticsComputer ProgrammingBiological databasesPython
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 email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org 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

Gent, BelgiumRegulatory Oxylipins https://vibconferences.be/event/regulatory-oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins-661da9dc-2159-4a34-8809-7851dfbe0b8a Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!
