  • Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling

    14 - 15 May 2018

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/multiple-sequence-alignment-with-jalview-and-protein-structure-and-function Date: Monday 14th to Tuesday 15th May 2018 Time: 9.00 to 17.00 Location: MSTC, Sherrington Building, University of Liverpool, L69 3BX Overview This two day hands-on training course is aimed at students and researchers who want to gain practical understanding of the tools and approaches for protein sequence, structure and function prediction and analysis. In day 1, participants will be introduced to Jalview - a free desktop application for the visualisation and comparative analysis of protein, DNA and RNA sequences. Jalview can integrate data from Ensembl, Uniprot, PDBe, Rfam and Pfam, and can access a range of tools for multiple sequence alignment, conservation analysis and secondary structure and disorder prediction, including the widely used JPred4. On the second day, participants will learn to use Jalview’s 3D structure visualisation capabilities in conjunction with UCSF Chimera, and take a whistle-stop tour of the methodologies and tools for prediction and analysis of Protein 3D structure and function. Participants are encouraged to bring their own protein analysis problems and time will be reserved at the end of day 2 for discussion.

  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node 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!
