    Elixir node event
    At The Forefront Of Plant Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB conferences@vib.be [] Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences [] plantbiologygenomics

    Introduction to tidyverse R in Antwerp https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-tidyverse The use of R in the data science field has increased enormously in the last few years. One very useful toolkit for a wide variety of analyses is the ‘tidyverse’: a collection of R-packages used for data manipulation, exploration and visualisation that share a common design philosophy. Tidyverse packages are intended to make statisticians and data scientists more productive by guiding them through workflows that facilitate communication, and result in reproducible work products. This is a four hour workshop, were you will learn:   The difference between tidy and untidy data How to create tidy datasets and manipulate them using the main tidyr and dplyr verbs Integrate data visualization into your workflow using ggplot2 Use tidyverse functions to research biological problems   2018-02-21 14:00:00 UTC 2018-02-21 18:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Campus Middelheim (CMI), building G, room G.005, Antwerp, Belgium Campus Middelheim (CMI), building G, room G.005 Antwerp Belgium 2020 [] [] [] [] [] []

    29 - 30 March 2018

    Ghent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Biopython https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-biopython ​​Understand what Biopython is and what it can do. Learn how to get Biopython running. Learn how to retrieve data records from NCBI. Learn how to read and write sequence files. Learn how to run BLAST from Python and read the results. Learn how to read and write phylogenetic tree files. Learn how to read and write 3D structure files. Learn how to use the Biopython documentation, examples, and where to find help. Understand what alternatives to Biopython exist and what they can do.   Biopython is the best-known Python library to process biological data. This training is aimed to empower you to use Biopython to make your research more efficient. The first day of the training is to give an overview of Biopython. You are going to start with your first steps in Biopython on the command line. Afterwards, you will take a tour of the most important components: sequences, NCBI queries, BLAST, trees, and 3D structures. You will try each of these modules on practical examples. Please don't hesitate to ask questions about Python basics or particular data formats (e.g. XML or NGS data). The second day of the training is to broaden your perspective: What other features does the library have? How can you use the documentation effectively? What is Biopython not capable of?  What can I do to visualize my data? Are there alternatives? If you have your own data that you would like to work on with Biopython in more detail, there is room for that. For me, the most important thing is to identify concrete Python modules and functions that help you to get your research done. Participants are encouraged to submit a description of their research topic and/or the questions they would like to answer with Biopython. Additionally, participants can bring their own data that they would like to process in Python to the training. 2018-03-29 09:30:00 UTC 2018-03-30 17:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core BioAccelerator, Ghent, Belgium BioAccelerator Ghent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
