NETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment
22 - 24 October 2018
Genova, ItalyNETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment http://www.nettab.org/2018/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nettab-2018-building-a-fair-bioinformatics-environment NETTAB 2018 is organised in collaboration with ELIXIR Nodes of the UK and Italy as well as the Italian Society of Bioinformatics, BITS. The main focus will be on FAIR principles in bioinformatics, a challenging topic that we hope will attract many researchers from all over the world, including but not limited to, Bioinformaticians, Biologists, Computer Scientists, and others working or interested in the above research scope. The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship, published in 2016, has sparked worldwide interest across the biology community: from grassroots to policymakers, and from data providers to publishers. In order to make the FAIR concept a reality, we need to answer many questions, like: What is FAIRness? How to make FAIR data a reality? How to facilitate the translation to FAIR data? How to measure it? On these topics, there are many ongoing projects, such as EOSCpilot, FAIRmetrics, FAIRsharing, and GO-FAIR. Now is the perfect time to discuss on these topics and related actions, and to move on from FAIR principles to FAIR practice. The workshop will provide an excellent environment and a range of opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, algorithms, tools, platforms, practical applications and experiences of FAIR in Bioinformatics. 2018-10-22 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-24 17:00:00 UTC NETTAB Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, 10, Largo Rosanna Benzi, Genova, Italy Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, 10, Largo Rosanna Benzi Genova Città Metropolitana di Genova Italy Data management  email@example.com - firstname.lastname@example.org ELIXIR  meetings_and_conferences  FAIR
Automated Workflow Composition in the Life Sciences
9 - 13 March 2020
Leiden, NetherlandsAutomated Workflow Composition in the Life Sciences https://www.lorentzcenter.nl/lc/web/2020/1201/info.php3?wsid=1201&venue=Oort https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/automated-workflow-composition-in-the-life-sciences In the age of computational science, researchers in the life sciences – just as in other domains – regularly face the need of composing several individual software tools into pipelines or workflows that perform the specific data analysis processes that they need in their research. For over 20 years now, dedicated scientific workflow management systems have been supporting scientists in this task, and they continue to gain popularity. In fact, recent years have seen significant progress in the functional annotation of bioinformatics software tools, as well as their virtualization, containerization and assembly into workflows for automatically executing the processes. At least since the rise of the Semantic Web in the early 2000s, also the idea of semantics-based automated composition of workflows has been around to simplify the work with scientific workflows further and free life science researchers from having to deal with the technicalities of software composition. This would not only save valuable research time, but also reduce errors, allow benchmarking of data analysis pipelines and enable new scientific findings by discovering workflows that researchers would not have thought of themselves. However, despite its obvious potential and appeal, the need for optimizing data analysis workflows, and despite different research groups working on the topic, automated workflow composition has not yet arrived in the daily practice of life science researchers. The reasons for this are manifold. Some are more practical (for example the lack of automatic composition tools in the commonly used software frameworks), others are of more fundamental nature (such as questions on specification languages, composition algorithms, formal semantics and workflows representations). On one important aspect, namely the semantic annotation of tools on a large scale, the life science community has made significant progress in the last years: The EDAM ontology provides a controlled vocabulary of bioinformatics operations, data types and formats, and the bio.tools registry has become a large collection of bioinformatics tools that are semantically annotated with terms from the EDAM ontology. As demonstrated in a recent Bioinformatics publication (https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/article/35/4/656/5060940), this forms a solid basis for performing automated workflow composition in the life sciences domain. Nevertheless, it is still a long way to its use in daily scientific practice. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners who have been working on different aspects related to automated workflow composition in the life sciences. These include life science researchers, tool providers, infrastructure developers, ontologists, algorithmics researchers and many more. They do not normally come together as a group at the regular scientific events, so a Lorentz workshop devoted to this topic provides a unique opportunity to join forces and together significantly advance the field. 2020-03-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-03-13 17:00:00 UTC Jon Ison, Anna-Lena Lamprecht, Magnus Palmblad and Veit Schwämmle Lorentz Center Oort, Leiden, Netherlands Lorentz Center Oort Leiden Netherlands 2333 Omics Workflows Leiden University email@example.com ELIXIRLorentz CenterLUMC software developers, bioinformaticiansbiocurators 50 workshops_and_courses  
9th RepeatExplorer Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis - CANCELLED
26 - 29 May 2020
České Budějovice, Czechia9th RepeatExplorer Workshop on the Application of Next Generation Sequencing to Repetitive DNA Analysis - CANCELLED http://repeatexplorer.org/?page_id=14 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/7th-repeatexplorer-workshop-on-the-application-of-next-generation-sequencing-to-repetitive-dna-analysis The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes. Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. The workshop should also serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and latest results with ample time dedicated to open discussions. Participants are encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic and/or bring their own data for practical training. The workshop is organized by the Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics of the Biology Centre AS CR. It will take place at the Academy of Sciences / University campus in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. The meeting programme will include theoretical lectures and research reports combined with hands-on training (no programming skills required). Registration if open till 5th May. In case of any questions or comments please contact Jiri Macas. 2020-05-26 09:00:00 UTC 2020-05-29 00:00:00 UTC Institute of Plant Molecular Biology, České Budějovice, Czech Republic Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská, České Budějovice, Czechia Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská České Budějovice České Budějovice Czechia  Jiri Macas ELIXIR: The Czech Republic Node PhD StudentspostdocsResearchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served
