  • H3ABioNet 2018 Genotyping Chip Data Analysis and GWAS lecture series - Lecture 1

    20 August 2018

    H3ABioNet 2018 Genotyping Chip Data Analysis and GWAS lecture series - Lecture 1 #### Computational requirements for running the H3ABioNet GWAS workflows The first of a series of seven online lectures for Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) will cover the technical requirements for setting up a your computational environment for running the H3ABioNet GWAS workflows. In this inaugural lecture of the series, Prof. Hazelhurst will cover the the following topics: Installing and using Nextflow Installing and using Github Use of containers for packaging and running tools Pulling the GWAS pipeline from Github and running it As this lecture aims to provide attendees with an environment to the run the H3ABioNet GWAS workflow at their own pace, there are some preliminary software requirements: Either a Linux machine or an Apple running macOS Ideally you should have machine with at least 2-4 cores and 8GB of RAM. Java 8 Nextflow installed (see installation instructions at Python 3 Please also install either Docker OR the following dependencies using pip3: Pandas, Matplotlib, Openpyxl, SciPy, NumPy PLINK 1.9 [Please also refer to the following documentation to obtain the H3ABioNet GWAS workflow]: 2018-08-20 15:00:00 UTC 2018-08-20 16:30:00 UTC H3ABioNet Population genomics Genotyping experiment Computational biology Workflows GWAS study Bioinformatics H3ABioNet H3ABioNet Anyone intersted in GWAS and using the H3Africa genotyping chipAnyone who wants to learn more about GWAS workshops_and_courses [] NextflowDockerH3ABioNetGWASWorkflowsGenotyping array analysis bioinformaticsAfricaPopulation GenomicsReproducible ScienceH3Africa genotyping arrayHigh performance computingCloud computingGWAS workflowH3ABioNet GWAS 2018 Lecture Series
  • 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!
