  • Pistoia Alliance Workshop on FAIR

    5 June 2018

    Utrecht, Netherlands

    Pistoia Alliance Workshop on FAIR https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/pistoia-alliance-workshop-on-fair The goal of this workshop is to share best practices and tools for the FAIRification and the FAIR data management of internal preclinical and clinical datasets in Pharma IT. The advent of ML / AI for pharma is very promising, however without a basic amount of metadata and smart annotation of existing data assets, the algorithms cannot make much headway. Several years of IMI knowledge management projects, experiments with data warehouses, data lakes etc. have made it clear that proper semantic annotation of data assets is hard and is resource intensive but a very important hurdle to overcome. In this workshop, we will focus on concrete practical approaches and tools that exist today to bring existing pharma data assets in line with the FAIR Guiding Principles. We will evaluate key topics around the Findability, Accessibility and Interoperability of datasets, and discuss the role in this of recent developments such as Bioschemas. A welcome buffet dinner, sponsored by The Hyve, will take place the evening before the workshop at 18:00 at The Hyve offices. 2018-06-05 09:00:00 UTC 2018-06-05 17:00:00 UTC Postoia Alliance The Hyve, 650, Arthur van Schendelstraat, Utrecht, Netherlands The Hyve, 650, Arthur van Schendelstraat Utrecht Utrecht Netherlands [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] FAIR

    Bacterial Genomes: From DNA to Protein Function Using Bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-from-dna-to-protein-function-using-bioinformatics # Overview * **Duration**: 2 weeks, 5 hours per week * Free * Certificate of Achievement available on satisfactory completion * **CPD Approval**: Royal College of Pathologists (10 credits) * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 2 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? Join us in our quest to discover what makes microbes dangerous. Use bioinformatics to probe genomes, to explore and represent DNA and protein sequences. Then, use databases to find protein sequences’ conserved domains and investigate their functions. ### Who is the course for? The course will be of interest to undergraduates, post-graduates, researchers, bioinformaticians, biomedical researchers, microbiologists, healthcare professionals and all those who are interested in learning about the underlying mechanisms of bacterial disease, DNA sequences and protein data, or how to use online analytical tools to probe genomes. The topics covered in this course are applicable to the genomes of all organisms. It is not essential to have previous knowledge or experience in bioinformatics. Scientific terminology is explained. The opportunity to use online computational tools in the context of bacterial genomes will also be of interest to teachers and their 16-18-year-old science and computing students. ### What do people say about this course? "_Clear introduction of the – often viewed as complex – field of bioinformatics_." Mqondisi Tshabalala, PhD student, Institute for Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Pretoria, South Africa "_Highlights of the course were the investigations with the databases - these reinforced the learning._" Dr. Alan McLintic, Anaesthesiologist, Faculty of Medicine and Health Scientists, University of Auckland, New Zealand # Programme and start dates ### Course start dates This course is repeated twice a year. Next start dates: * December 2018 (date TBC) * June 2019 (date TBC) ### What topics will you cover? * Bioinformatics tools, DNA and protein sequences * Retrieving DNA and protein sequences from repositories * Databases for protein annotation * Inferring function from sequence ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * assess DNA representations and protein sequences * perform searches in primary databases (repositories) and retrieve gene/protein data * interpret different repository submission formats * investigate biological databases for research * identify the putative function of proteins based on their conserved domains # Educators ## **Lead Educators** ### Dr Anna Protasio I am a researcher in parasitology and life sciences. I am passionate about bioinformatics and how we can use these tools to answer questions in biology. ### Martin Aslett I am the IT Manager for the Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences team. My interests lie in bioinformatics and its application to microbial genomics. ### Dr Christine Boinett I am a researcher in bacterial genetics and my interest is in understanding the development of resistance in bacterial pathogens using next generation sequencing techniques. ## **Educator** ### Matthew Dorman I am a graduate student at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, where I research the virulence and the molecular genetics of bacterial pathogens as part of the Infection Genomics programme. ## **Programme Lead Educator** ### Professor Nicholas Thomson Group Leader at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, interested in bacterial evolution and the spread of infectious disease; provides scientific oversight for this course.

  • Supporting FAIR Exchange of Chemical Data through Standards Development

    16 - 18 July 2018

    Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Supporting FAIR Exchange of Chemical Data through Standards Development https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/supporting-fair-exchange-of-chemical-data-through-standards-development The GO FAIR initiative is intended to encourage and enable accurate and reproducible data exchange among and across disciplines. FAIR encapsulates the concepts that data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This workshop will explore how these goals can be accomplished in the context of chemical data, addressing some of the issues present within chemistry, but also in the context of broader interaction with other disciplines. The topics have been chosen to begin a process of standards development and maintenance, tool development and maintenance, and addressing use cases from other domains. Key opportunities include interoperability criteria for spectra using IUPAC standards, prioritizing activities within the GO FAIR ecosystem, creating draft roadmaps with key milestones, and recruiting key leaders for ongoing activity. 2018-07-16 09:00:00 UTC 2018-07-18 17:00:00 UTC GO FAIR Science Park, Science Park, Amsterdam, Netherlands Science Park, Science Park Amsterdam Amsterdam Netherlands Data management [] International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Committee on Publications and Cheminformatics Data Standards (CPCDS) CPCDS Subcommittee on Cheminformatics Data Standards (SCDS) CODATA the Committee on Data of the International Council for Science [] workshops_and_courses [] FAIR
  • 6th International Summer School on Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Registries

    10 - 14 September 2018

    Roma, Italy

    6th International Summer School on Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Registries https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/6th-international-summer-school-on-rare-disease-and-orphan-drug-registries The "6th International Summer School on Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Registries" is organized by the National Centre for Rare Diseases – Istituto Superiore di Sanità in collaboration with RD-Connect, ELIXIR-IT, ELIXIR-NL, EURORDIS, Orphanet, EuRRECa, European Reference Networks, EPIRARE and ICORD. Registries are key resources in order to increase timely and accurate diagnosis, improve patients management, tailor treatments, facilitate clinical trials, support healthcare planning and speed up research. The course will provide participants with useful tools and methodologies for establish a registry, the quality of the data collected and how a registry is turned into a FAIR resource. It intends i) to promote the establishment of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR) registries in compliance with IRDiRC and EU Recommendations and ii) to support cooperation among different registry stakeholders and coordination with registries that are developed within European Reference Networks and National Plans in the EU. 2018-09-10 08:00:00 UTC 2018-09-14 17:30:00 UTC D.
