  • Introduction to Machine Learning

    Basel, Switzerland

    Introduction to Machine Learning https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-machine-learning Machine learning has emerged as a discipline that enables computers to assist humans in making sense of large and complex data sets. With the drop-in cost of sequencing technologies, large amounts of omics data are being generated and made accessible to researchers. Analysing these complex high-volume data is not trivial and the use of classical tools cannot explore their full potential. Machine learning can thus be very useful in mining large omics datasets to uncover new insights that can advance the field of medicine and improve health care. The aim of this tutorial is to introduce participants to the Machine learning (ML) taxonomy and common machine learning algorithms. The tutorial will cover the methods being used to analyse different omics data sets by providing a practical context through the use of basic but widely used R and Python libraries. The tutorial will comprise a number of hands on exercises and challenges, where the participants will acquire a first understanding of the standard ML processes as well as the practical skills in applying them on familiar problems and publicly available real-world data sets. 2019-09-09 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-09 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR-GR, H3ABioNet University of Basel Kollegienhaus Petersplatz 1 CH-4001 Basel, Basel, Switzerland University of Basel Kollegienhaus Petersplatz 1 CH-4001 Basel Basel Basel-Stadt Switzerland CH-4001 [] Fotis E.

    4th European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics - ECTB2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/4th-european-conference-on-translational-bioinformatics-ectb2019 We are pleased to present the 4th European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics: Biomedical Big Data Supporting Precision Medicine (#ECTB2019). The fourth ECTB edition follows the successful precedent of previous editions organized in 2016 at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2017 at the European Bioinformatics Institute, UK and in 2018 at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB). ECTB2019 will bring together researchers, clinicians, developers, and companies interested in exchanging experiences on the translation of research and innovative developments into healthcare tools and services based on genomics and bioinformatics applications. The conference is organised in collaboration with the University of Granada, Fundación Progreso y Salud (FPS) and the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES). 2019-11-11 10:15:00 UTC 2019-11-12 16:00:00 UTC University of Granada, Fundación Progreso y Salud (FPS) and the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de Granada, 11, Avenida de la Investigación, Granada, Spain Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de Granada, 11, Avenida de la Investigación Granada Spain Biomedical science Genomics Bioinformatics Translational medicine University of Granada [] ResearchersCliniciansDevelopersCompanies meetings_and_conferences [] Translational researchTranslational Bioinformaticsbiomedical applicationsBig DataPrecision MedicineGenomicsBioinformaticsClinical BioinformaticstoolsservicesHealthcareApplications

    Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advances-in-computational-biology-conference-2019 The first **Advances in Computational Biology conference – _Fostering collaboration among women scientists_** will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors. One of the main purposes of the conference is to **visualize and promote the research done by women scientists** and for this reason, all presenters will be women, although the conference is open to everyone. We want to create a space to foster collaborations between scientists, providing an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build research networks. Topics included: - **Learning from Biological Sequences**: population genomics, evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence analysis - **When Computational Biology meets Medicine**: biomedical applications, mutational landscapes, clinical genomics - **Machines Speeding up Research**: high performance computing, machine learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic simulations and algorithm development Key dates: - Open registration: May 6th, 2019 - Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019 - **Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019** - Early bird registration deadline: September 15th, 2019 - Registration deadline: November 1st, 2019 - AdvCompBio Conference: November 28th - 29th, 2019 The programme will include poster and oral presentations, as well as keynotes from leading scientists in the computational biology and high-performance computing fields.
