    ELIXIR CZ Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences I https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-cz-artificial-intelligence-in-life-sciences-i This workshop will provide a basic introduction to machine learning and its application in Life Sciences, with a special focus on molecular and cell biology. Data-driven approaches penetrate various scientific disciplines, including the fields of biology, biochemistry and biotechnology. Novel technologies of high-throughput data collection and advanced data analysis, such as deep neural networks, offer exceptional opportunities for the development of very complex and accurate mathematical models. The theoretical lectures will cover main methods, algorithms and technologies, illustrate their use in biology and biochemistry research using real-life examples. Hands-on practicals will provide participants with essential skills for the application of machine learning methods and software tools for solving problems in Life Sciences. We plan to continue in our effort to organize follow-ups of this meeting and focus on challenging issues in life science disciplines approachable by AI technology. 2020-10-26 11:00:00 UTC 2020-10-27 14:00:00 UTC ELIXIR CZ, IOCB, FNUSA – ICRC, University of West Bohemia Flemingovo nám. 542, 542, Flemingovo náměstí, Prague, Czechia Flemingovo nám. 542, 542, Flemingovo náměstí Prague Hlavní město Praha Czechia 166 10 [] https://www.elixir-czech.cz/events/elixir-cz-artificial-intelligence-in-life-sciences-oct-2020 [] [] 75 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Artificial Intelligencemachine learningDrug design
  • GDPR and training

    28 October 2020

    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
  • DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop

    2 - 5 November 2020

    Berlin, Germany

    DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/dna-methylation-data-analysis-workshop Advance your epigenetics research with NGS methods. In a nutshell - Learn how bisulfite sequencing works - Understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome - Perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses) - Use shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines - Visualize results (ready-to-publish) The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics. By the end of this workshop the participants will: - be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina - understand how bisulfite sequencing works - be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data - understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome - be familiar with common data formats and standards - know relevant tools for data processing - automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines - perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses) - plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish) - be able to reuse all analyses 2020-11-02 09:00:00 UTC 2020-11-05 17:00:00 UTC ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH PC-COLLEGE Berlin, 78, Stresemannstraße, Berlin, Germany PC-COLLEGE Berlin, 78, Stresemannstraße Berlin Germany 10963 Sequencing Sequence analysis Bioinformatics [] ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sternwartenstr. 29 D-04103 Leipzig Germany Email: events@ecSeq.com [] BiologistsBiologists, Genomicists, Computer ScientistsMolecular BiologistsPhD studentspost-docsPathologistsbioinformaticians 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served EpigeneticsDNA MethylationBisulfite-Seq
