    GDPR and training https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/gdpr-and-training The OpenAIRE Community of Practice for Training coordinators invites you to join this 1.5 hour-long webinar and collaborative writing sprint on organizing GDPR compliant online events. Prodromos Tsiavos (Legal Adviser of "Athena" Research & Innovation Center and OpenAIRE) will provide good practice advice and Walter Scholger (Zentrum für Informationsmodellierung, Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities, Universität Graz) will talk about the Consent Form Wizard https://consent.dariah.eu/ followed by discussions on how to make sure that GDPR requirements are properly addressed and personal data is protected. It will cover best practices for online event organisation, including pre- and post-event (registration, carrying out, evaluation, etc.). It will also address the following aspects: how to inform correctly about a session recording and how to make the recordings available (e.g. with public chat messages, etc.), good practices on making collaborative documents (developed at online sessions) publicly available, issues to consider during large online events, how to optimize the online events workflows, whether national differences in Europe play a big role, etc. Plain language templates and checklists will be created in breakout group writing sprints and shared with a wider training community. The following good practice recommendations will be developed during the writing sprints: - Template/s: plain language wording for online registration forms (disclaimers, permissions, notice that consent could be withdrawn any time) and good practices for online events registration - e.g. a host organization manages registration on its website and has full control of data and a way to safely manage it, etc. - Wording suggestions for recording announcements, disclaimers and permissions (e.g. what will be captured - video, webcam footage, audio, text chat messages and displayed username; inform participants on how to anonymize themselves - change names, blur video, etc; is the participant’s consent needed - in writing - accept and continue at registration or verbal expression is sufficient, etc.) - Template/plain language wording to deal with personal data in evaluation/feedback forms. GDPR friendly tools and checklists for making online session materials publicly available - recording, collaborative documents, etc. - Checklists/workflows for running online events: e.g. event access under password (not a direct link). - Checklists/workflows for keeping online events documentation, registration and recording: e.g. beware of not keeping backups with actual names and email addresses; anonymize before backing up and storing, secure storage (encrypted?), etc. - Retention period: for how long the data could/should be kept and when it will be deleted, etc. 2020-10-28 14:00:00 UTC 2020-10-28 15:30:00 UTC The OpenAIRE Community of Practice for Training coordinators [] iryna.kuchma@eifl.net [] [] workshops_and_courses [] GDPRtraining
  • Online Course - A Practical Introduction to NGS Data Analysis

    9 - 11 December 2020

    Online Course - A Practical Introduction to NGS Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-course-a-practical-introduction-to-ngs-data-analysis-2523f702-4ade-4c7e-a782-cec42fbeec49 Advance your research. Understand NGS and analyze sequenced data yourself. In a nutshell - Learn the essential computing skills for NGS bioinformatics - Understand NGS technology, algorithms and data formats - Use bioinformatics tools for handling sequencing data - Perform first downstream analyses for studying genetic variation The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina. All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this fast evolving research topic. The online course will make use of a web conferencing system. Hands-on NGS analysis will be performed in an interactive browser-based platform. Before the course, you will get a printed manuscript and a USB key by mail. 2020-12-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-11 17:00:00 UTC ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sequencing Sequence analysis Bioinformatics [] ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sternwartenstr. 29 D-04103 Leipzig Germany Email: events@ecSeq.com [] BiologistsMolecular BiologistsPathologistsBiologists, Genomicists, Computer Scientistspost-docsPhD studentsbioinformaticians 15 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served NGS bioinformaticsNGSVariant callingDNA-seq
