  • Software Sustainability – Why and How to do it

    21 November 2019

    Software Sustainability – Why and How to do it This is a BioExcel webinar by Steve Crouch from [Software Sustainability Institute]( (SSI). We’ll explore the importance of **research software**, and the practices we can employ to develop it to help ensure its **sustainability** in the short, medium, and long term. We’ll also look at the different and emerging styles of _Management Plans_ for software, and how _software evaluation_ can identify areas for improvement and assist in the shaping of future development goals, and the potential for automation to allow evaluation to be conducted at scale. Software has a crucial role in the research process across many disciplines. As it continues to underpin our science and help push the boundaries of what is achievable, it becomes increasingly important that the sustainability of our software is given sufficient attention to ensure it can continue to evolve and grow to meet ever-changing research goals. 2019-11-21 14:00:00 UTC 2019-11-21 15:00:00 UTC [] Register at [] [] [] registration_of_interest Webinarsustainabilityresearch softwaresoftware development
  • ELIXIR Norway: Hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop

    26 November 2019

    Tromsø, Norway

    Elixir node event
    ELIXIR Norway: Hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop We are pleased to announce the second hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop organised in Tromsø by [ELIXIR Norway]( The topic is on how you can use the Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences - [NeLS]( to store and share data, and to run analyses via customisable analysis workflows in Galaxy. More specifically, we will go through how you can store data in NeLS and upload it directly into Galaxy. We will also construct and run a complete sequence analysis workflow for taxonomic profiling on a metagenomic sample. There are no requirements for programming skills or experience using the command line, as Galaxy provides a web interface for running analysis. 2019-11-26 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-26 15:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110), Tromsø, Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110) Tromsø Tromsø Norway 9019 Bioinformatics University of Tromsø ELIXIR Norway life scientistsdata managers 20 workshops_and_courses by_invitation bioinformaticsNeLSGalaxyEeLPeLearning
  • Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019

    28 - 29 November 2019

    Barcelona, Spain

    Elixir node event
    Advances in Computational Biology Conference 2019 The first **Advances in Computational Biology conference – _Fostering collaboration among women scientists_** will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors. One of the main purposes of the conference is to **visualize and promote the research done by women scientists** and for this reason, all presenters will be women, although the conference is open to everyone. We want to create a space to foster collaborations between scientists, providing an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build research networks. Topics included: - **Learning from Biological Sequences**: population genomics, evolutionary genomics, systems biology, transcriptomics, sequence analysis - **When Computational Biology meets Medicine**: biomedical applications, mutational landscapes, clinical genomics - **Machines Speeding up Research**: high performance computing, machine learning in the life sciences, imaging data analysis, dynamic simulations and algorithm development Key dates: - Open registration: May 6th, 2019 - Abstract submission opens: May 6th, 2019 - **Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2019** - Early bird registration deadline: September 15th, 2019 - Registration deadline: November 1st, 2019 - AdvCompBio Conference: November 28th - 29th, 2019 The programme will include poster and oral presentations, as well as keynotes from leading scientists in the computational biology and high-performance computing fields. The keynote speakers of the conference are: **Christine Orengo**, group leader of Orengo Group at University College London, **Natasa Przulj**, group leader of the Life Sciences – Integrative Computational Network Biology at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and **Marie-Christine Sawley**, director of the Exascale Lab at Intel. The confirmed chairs of the conference are: **Alison Kennedy**, director of the STFC Hartree Centre, **Janet Kelso**, group leader of the Minerva Research Group for Bioinformatics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and **Nuria Lopez-Bigas**, leader of the Biomedical Genomics Research Group at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to interact personally with female leaders in the fields of IT, academic research and politics that support the conference. The conference is organised by the Bioinfo4Women programme from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) with the collaboration of IMIM-UPF Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics (GRIB), the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It is an affiliate conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). 2019-11-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-29 17:00:00 UTC La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain La Pedrera, 92, Passeig de Gràcia Barcelona Barcelona Spain Imaging Machine learning Computational biology Computer science Biomedical science Sequence analysis Transcriptomics Evolutionary biology Population genomics Omics Systems biology Bioinformatics [] [] ResearchersPhD studentsPostdoctoral studentsComputer scienceComputational biologistsbioinformaticians meetings_and_conferences [] HPCBioinformaticsComputational BiologyArtificial IntelligenceGenomicsTranscriptomicsSystems biologyPopulation GenomicsEvolutinary genomicsSequence Analysisbiomedical applicationsmutational landscapesclinical genomicsImagingdynamic simulationsalgorithmsmachine learning
  • Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4

    10 - 12 December 2019

    Elixir node event
    Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4 NBIS (the Swedish node of ELIXIR) and ELIXIR Slovenia are offering an "Introduction to Linux" course targeted at life scientists who want to extend their skills and knowledge. Big data (usually in the form of large text files) are generated nowadays in many fields of science. Trying to handle this data with applications like Word or Excel is difficult or impossible, while using the Linux command line can improve data processing efficiency. Unix/Linux provides an excellent computing environment for several disciplines (such as bioinformatics, physics, engineering) and the command line interpreter (shell) serves as an interface to many big-data processing programs. The course provides a basic introduction to Unix/Linux commands and covers how Unix/Linux commands can be used to manage and inspect your data and results, and how to generate and run pipelines and workflows using basic shell scripting. Finally, we will show you how the command line is used for access to supercomputers for boosting your scientific research. Participants will be able to attend the course either by traveling to Stockholm or to Umeå in Sweden, to Ljubljana in Slovenia, or by connecting remotely via the ELIXIR Slovenia eLearning Platform (EeLP). The number of remote students is limited to 30. The number of students per classroom is limited to 15 for Stockholm and Umeå, and 20 for Ljubljana. Additional participants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as space becomes available. The course will be broadcast from Sweden. ***The registration deadline has been extended until Friday, November 22.*** 2019-12-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-12-12 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Sweden (NBIS) and ELIXIR Slovenia Bioinformatics Computer science NBISUniversity of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine [] Life Science ResearchersbioinformaticiansBiophysicistsengineers [] [] life sciences LinuxUnixEeLPeLearningCommand line
