  • Handle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse

    13 December 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    Handle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse The use of R in the data science field has increased enormously the last few years. One very useful toolkit for a wide variety of analyses is the ‘tidyverse’: a collection of R-packages used for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. Tidyverse packages are intended to make statisticians and data scientists more productive by guiding them through workflows that facilitate communication, and result in reproducible work products. In this workshop you will learn: The difference between tidy and untidy data How to create tidy datasets and manipulate them using the main tidyr and dplyr verbs Make your results reproducible by using Rmarkdown and Rstudio Integrate data visualisation into your workflow using ggplot2 Apply the tidyverse to biological problems LEVEL: A very basic knowledge of the R programming language (or any other programming language) is expected. We expect a little bit of R-experience for this workshop. If you’re already an R-wizard but never did anything using Tidyverse, then this workshop is a great introduction to it! If you’re not an R-wizard but now a little bit of R, then this course is a great way to improve your R-skills fast. If you’re already pretty good with Tidyverse, I guess we can not help you as this is an introduction Please remember to bring your own laptop with the last version of R installed.

    13 December - 14 October 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    BBC2017 The BBC is the key annual event that brings together researchers working at the intersection of a broad range of disciplines including computer science, biology, and medicine in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Don’t miss the chance to use the power of our network, join the conference by filling in the registration form (“Registration” section). The Benelux Bioinformatics Conference is the primary community event for bioinformatics researchers in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg with excellent networking opportunities. The conference is aimed at both academic and industry researchers. In two days it will feature: Extended keynote presentations on recent breakthroughs in bioinformatics and systems biology Short presentations contributed by the participants and detailing recent advances Extensive poster sessions for informal discussions and networking Flash talks about the posters exposed to make sure you don’t miss a thing Networking social dinner to improve the bonds with your colleagues 2 different workshops to explore and discover new interesting topics 2017-12-13 14:00:00 UTC 2017-10-14 18:00:00 UTC Daniele Parisi, Cedric Lood, Nikolina Šoštarić, Vera Van Noort Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Leuven Leuven Flemish Brabant Belgium 3001 KU Leuven Daniele Parisi Nikolina Šoštarić Cédric Lood Elixir Belgium PhD studentspostdocsMaster studentsProfessorsResearchers meetings_and_conferences registration_of_interest bioinformaticsComputationalBiology
  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins 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!
