  • Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis

    27 - 29 September 2017

    Fisciano, Italy

    Training Course on Best practices for RNA-Seq data analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/training-course-on-best-practices-for-rna-seq-data-analysis Next-generation sequencing (NGS) of RNA libraries (RNA-Seq) has become increasingly common and it largely replaced microarray technology for gene expression profiling. The aim of this course is to get a deeper understanding of RNA-Seq experiments, providing a theoretical introduction to the data processing steps, together with practical sessions illustrating the use of the most popular data analysis tools. The classroom size is limited to 25 participants to optimize the learning and the interaction with the instructors. Starting from the raw sequenced data coming from different phenotypical samples (e.g disease vs healthy control samples), genes which are differentially expressed between the two conditions are determine. Some strategies are illustrated for detecting alternative splicing products, predicting novel isoforms and gene fusion events. Some methods for downstream analysis are described to give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-Seq experiments. A lecture on single-cell RNA-Seq will provide an idea of how transcriptome data from individual cells is now emerging as a powerful tool, allowing the study of cell-to-cell gene expression heterogeneity in the same tissue. 2017-09-27 09:15:00 UTC 2017-09-29 16:30:00 UTC Anna Marabotti (University of Salerno and ELIXIR-IIB Training Team, Italy), Roberto Tagliaferri (University of Salerno, Italy), Alessandro Weisz (University of Salerno, Italy), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Team and IIT, Italy), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, CNR-IBPM, Italy) Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132, Fisciano, Italy Campus di Fisciano, Università degli Studi di Salerno, Via Giovanni Paolo II, n. 132 Fisciano Provincia di Salerno Italy 84084 Transcriptomics RNA splicing Sequencing Bioinformatics RNA-Seq Gene expression Campus di Fisciano, University of Salerno, Italy elixir.ita.training@gmail.com, amarabotti@unisa.it ELIXIR Italy PhD students and young researchers in the life science and computational biology field who are planning to use RNA-seq data and are looking for the best practices to analyze these types of data 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest NGSRNA-SeqBioinformaticsData analysisHigh Throughput Sequencing AnalysisGene Expression

    Milano, Italy

    Docker Advanced Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/docker-advanced-course Docker is used to run “containers” that are essentially lightweight virtual machines. Containers are isolated from each other and use their own set of tools and libraries; they can communicate through well-defined channels. This allows to easily deploy programs since all requisites of a program are stored inside the containers. This course will provide the basic notions and tool to allow a developer to “dockerize” her programs, and to manage a set of containers, hence greatly improving the installation process. 2018-09-26 09:00:00 UTC 2018-09-27 18:00:00 UTC Gianluca Della Vedova (Department of Computer Science, University of Milano-Bicocca, IT), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator Deputy, IBIOM-CNR, IT), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, IBPM-CNR, IT) Via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8, Lab. 715, U7 Building, Milano, Italy Via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8, Lab. 715, U7 Building Milano Città Metropolitana di Milano Italy 20126 Computer science Bioinformatics University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy gianluca.dellavedova@unimib.it [] DevelopersDevOps in any field 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest DockerContainersVirtual machine

  • Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Brugge, Belgium

    Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/type-2-immunity-in-homeostasis-and-disease Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted for the following topics: Tissue homeostasis and repair Type 2 Neuro-immune axis Type 2 in allergy, asthma & helminth infection Type 2 Immunity & Cancer Deadlines: • Early Bird: 10 January 2019 • Late Registration: 7 February 2019 • Abstract deadline: 19 December 2018 2019-02-21 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-22 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences OLD ST.

  • Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery

    13 - 17 May 2019

    Bled, Slovenia

    Elixir node event
    Workshop on High-Content Imaging and Data Science for Virtual Screening and Drug Discovery https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-on-high-content-imaging-and-data-science-for-virtual-screening-and-drug-discovery High-throughput phenotypic screening, based on high-content imaging, is increasingly often used as a tool for drug discovery. Compound screens are used to find hits that produce the desired phenotypes in relevant cellular assays. Genomic screens are used to elucidate the underlying molecular pathways and identify suitable drug targets. Since high-content screening produces a lot of data, data science approaches such as statistics, machine learning and neural networks can help interpret the collected data. Just as virtual screening can be performed in chemoinformatics (learning predictive models for QSAR - quantitative structure-activity relations) from data obtained through compound screens, similar approaches can be taken in the context of high-throughput phenotypic screening. This will be the first event of its kind in the region of Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. The event will bring together a group of experts covering different topics in the fields of high-content screening, image analysis, chemoinformatics and machine learning. This will allow graduate students and researchers from both academia and industry to familiarize themselves with these cutting-edge topics. The workshop will have an impact on both the academic and industrial sector in the region (e.g. biotech companies of all sizes). The workshop is part of the INTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN (Big Data and Disease Models: A Cross- border Platform for Validated Biotech Industry Kits), which brings together experts on the topic from academia and industry. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 18:00:00 UTC Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia, Bled, Slovenia Rikli Balance Hotel, Cankarjeva cesta 4, SI-4260 Bled, Slovenia Bled Gorenjska Slovenia SI-4260 Drug discovery Genomics Rikli Balance Hotel elixir@mf.uni-lj.si European UnionINTERREG V-A Italy-Slovenia 2014-2020 project TRAIN PhD studentsGraduate studentsResearchersBusiness EntrepreneursBiotechnology CompaniesPharmaceutical Industry workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest INTERREGPhenotypic screeningData analysisVirtual ScreeningHigh-content imaging

    Leuven, Belgium

    The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology
