  • Handle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse

    13 December 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    Handle your data the tidy way: Data science using R and the tidyverse https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/handle-your-data-the-tidy-way-data-science-using-r-and-the-tidyverse The use of R in the data science field has increased enormously 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 visualization 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. In this workshop 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 Make your results reproducible by using Rmarkdown and Rstudio Integrate data visualisation into your workflow using ggplot2 Apply the tidyverse to biological problems LEVEL: A very basic knowledge of the R programming language (or any other programming language) is expected. We expect a little bit of R-experience for this workshop. If you’re already an R-wizard but never did anything using Tidyverse, then this workshop is a great introduction to it! If you’re not an R-wizard but now a little bit of R, then this course is a great way to improve your R-skills fast. If you’re already pretty good with Tidyverse, I guess we can not help you as this is an introduction Please remember to bring your own laptop with the last version of R installed.

  • NETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment

    22 - 24 October 2018

    Genova, Italy

    NETTAB 2018: Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment 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 [] paolo.romano@hsanmartino.it - paolo.dm.romano@gmail.com ELIXIR [] meetings_and_conferences [] FAIR
  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins-661da9dc-2159-4a34-8809-7851dfbe0b8a Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!
