  • Advanced Scientific Programming in Python

    14 - 21 January 2018

    Melbourne, Australia

    Advanced Scientific Programming in Python Applications are now open for this international school being held in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. The Advanced Scientific Programming in Python (ASPP) summer school has had 10 extremely successful iterations in Europe ( Now, thanks to funding from the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), Melbourne is hosting the first ASPP workshop focussed on the Asia Pacific region. 2018-01-14 17:51:00 UTC 2018-01-21 17:51:00 UTC Juan Nunez-Iglesias, Melbourne Bioinformatics University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia University of Melbourne Melbourne Australia Imaging Neurobiology Informatics University of Melbourne INCF Life Science Researcherspost-docsPhD studentsMaster studentsbioinformaticians workshops_and_courses [] Pythonneurosciencesbioinformatics
  • Plant Phenotyping

    12 November 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Plant Phenotyping Plant phenotyping research has gone through a data revolution with the automation of plant phenotyping platforms, making it critical to adopt good data management practices in order the exploit the torrent of data to its full potential. Concretely, data should be published in a Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) way in order to enable the integration of data from disparate sources and the discovery of new knowledge. Yet, this is one of the more challenging domains to standardize, as it is extremely heterogeneous in terms of experimental settings and types of data. The ELIXIR infrastructure, with prominent contributions from (the Portuguese ELIXIR node) has been tackling this challenge at the European and international level, by developing standards and services to enable the management of plant phenotype-genotype data and its publication in accordance with the FAIR principles. In this workshop, we will be presenting the outcomes of this work from the ELIXIR plant sciences community, featuring a keynote from one of its key members, Dr. Anne-Françoise Adam-Blondon (ELIXIR-France), a detailed tutorial about the design and usage of the MIAPPE (Minimum Information About Plant Phenotyping Experiments), a hands-on data annotation and publication session, and a demonstration of ELIXIR’s Plant Data Search service. 2019-11-12 14:00:00 UTC 2019-11-12 19:00:00 UTC ITQB Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier Oeiras Lisbon Portugal 2775-412 Oeiras ITQB NOVA - Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier, Universidade Nova de - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec [] Life Science ResearchersBiologists, Genomicists, Computer Scientistsplant researchers workshops_and_courses [] Plant PhenotypingGenotypingdata managementbioinformatics
  • Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins

    27 - 31 January 2020

    Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) are a highly abundant class of proteins that lack stable tertiary and/or secondary structures under physiological conditions. Numerous IDPs are associated with human diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, amyloidoses, neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes. Overall, intriguing interconnections among intrinsic disorder, cell signaling, and human diseases suggest that protein conformational diseases may result not only from protein misfolding, but also from misidentification, missignaling, and unnatural or nonnative folding. The winter school will alternate lectures to practicals. During lectures, experts of the field will provide students an overview of IDP biological mechanisms that develop pathogenic phenotypes. They will explore the concepts of folding, unfolding and misfolding, highlighting their differences and similarities. Practical exercises aim at transferring to students basic skills for the study of IDPs and will revolve around the use of bioinformatic tools to solve complex problems. The school includes a half-day workshop on ELIXIR interoperability services and support for the IDP Community. 2020-01-27 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-31 17:00:00 UTC Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Protein properties Protein disordered structure Bioinformatics University of Padova, Italy [] PhD studentspostdoctoral researchersLife Science Researchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest intrinsically disordered proteinsprotein foldingbioinformatics
