  • Computational approaches to the study of protein interactions and rational drug design

    10 - 14 April 2017

    Padova, Italy

    Computational approaches to the study of protein interactions and rational drug design In this workshop, participants will familiarise with docking approaches to the study of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) and protein-small molecule interactions. Irreversible binders design using molecular docking and computational methods to rational drug design will be also described, as well as the functional role of the intrinsically disordered proteins. The Plenary lectures of N. Davey (10.02.2017), A. Bonvin, S. Forli and S. Moro (11.02.2017) will be open and free to everyone but require application. Practical sessions are limited to 30 participants. On the afternoon of day 3, participants can bring their own data (e.g. proteins they want to study interactions for). They will be split in groups based on the type of system they want to study (i.e protein-protein, protein-small ligand interactions or virtual screening) and will analyse it assisted by A. Bonvin and S. Forli. 2017-04-10 14:00:00 UTC 2017-04-14 13:00:00 UTC Allegra Via, Lisanna Paladin, Marco Carraro Campus di Biologia e Biomedicina “Fiore di Botta”, University of Padova, Via del Pescarotto, 8, Padova, Italy Campus di Biologia e Biomedicina “Fiore di Botta”, University of Padova, Via del Pescarotto, 8 Padova Provincia di Padova Italy Protein-protein interactions Protein-protein interactions Protein-ligand interactions Protein-ligand interactions Protein interactions Medicinal chemistry University of Padova, Italy ELIXIR Italy Structural biologistsBioinformaticians 30 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Bioinformaticsprotein structureDrug designDockingProtein interactions

  • Nextflow 2019

    17 - 20 September 2019

    Barcelona, Spain

    Elixir node event
    Nextflow 2019 **Create. Deploy. Share.** Nextflow is a popular workflow management solution that allows scientists and engineers to create data-driven applications which can be effortlessly scaled across clusters and clouds. It simplifies the writing of complex distributed computational workflows in a portable and replicable manner. Nextflow allows the seamless parallelization and deployment of any existing application with minimal development and maintenance overhead, irrespective of the original programming language. Containerisation technologies and inbuilt executors for the most popular cluster systems (SLURM, PBS, UGE, LSF, etc) and cloud infrastructure (AWS Batch & Google Cloud Platform) ensures unrivalled deployment. The built-in support for code repositories provides code sharing for the collaborations that matter most and enable your applications to touch the world. But most of all, the active community of that has formed around Nextflow provides inspirational, best-in-class technical examples from global leaders in workflow deployment as well as lasting relationships in a growing community. __Nextflow Training - 17th and 18th September 2019__ The week kicks off with a two-day intensive workshop intended for Nextflow beginners and intermediate users. In these practical sessions, participants learn about Nextflow technology starting from basic through to advanced concepts, with the expectation they will acquire the proficiency to develop and deploy their own workflows. The workshop will be provided across 14 topics including processes, operators, executors, containers and best practices. A GitHub repository will be provided with all the necessary material and software as well as AWS cloud instances for running the deployments in the relevant practical sessions. The audience is expected to have at least some prior basic command line experience. __Nextflow Camp - 19th and 20th September 2019__ Nextflow Camp brings together the Nextflow community of developers and users to discuss the state of Nextflow technology, the latest developments and tackle the open questions in a collaborative manner. Each day is split between talks from Nextflow experts and tutorial breakout sessions where participants get a flavour for the possibilities for their own applications. We hope to see you in Barcelona in September! 2019-09-17 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-20 18:00:00 UTC Paolo Di Tommaso PRBB Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona, 88, Carrer del Doctor Aiguader, Barcelona, Spain PRBB Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona, 88, Carrer del Doctor Aiguader Barcelona Barcelona Spain 08003 Centre for Genomic Regulation AWS Bioinformaticians 50 meetings_and_conferencesworkshops_and_courses first_come_first_served NextflowWorkflowsContainersCloud ComputingHPC

  • WEBINAR: Detection of and phasing of hybrid accessions in a target capture dataset

    10 June 2021


    WEBINAR: Detection of and phasing of hybrid accessions in a target capture dataset Hybridisation plays an important role in evolution, leading to the exchange of genes between species and in some cases generate new lineages. The use of molecular methods has revealed the frequency and importance of reticulation events is higher than previously thought and this insight continues with the ongoing development of phylogenomic methods that allow novel insights into the role and extent of hybridisation. Hybrids notoriously provide challenges for the reconstruction of evolutionary relationships, as they contain conflicting genetic information from their divergent parental lineages. However, this also provides the opportunity to gain insights into the origin of hybrids (including autopolyploids). This webinar explores some of the challenges and opportunities that occur when hybrids are included in a target capture sequence dataset. In particular, it describes the impact of hybrid accessions on sequence assembly and phylogenetic analysis and further explores how the information of the conflicting phylogenetic signal can be used to detect and resolve hybrid accessions. The webinar will showcase a novel bioinformatic workflow, [HybPhaser](, that can be used to detect and phase hybrids in target capture datasets and will provide the theoretical background and concepts behind the workflow. **Presenter:** Dr Lars Nauheimer, Australian Tropical Herbarium **Date/time:** 10 June 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST [**Register here**]( 2021-06-10 12:00:00 UTC 2021-06-10 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia Australia Phylogenetics Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke [] BioinformaticiansBiologists 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served phylogenetics
