VIBes in Biosciences 2020
11 - 13 March 2020
Leuven, BelgiumVIBes in Biosciences 2020 https://www.vibconferences.be/events/vibes-in-biosciences-2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/vibes-in-biosciences-2020 The VIBes in Bioscience PhD conference is an initiative from the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) that takes place in Belgium. The organizing committee consists of motivated VIB PhD students, who bring together young and ambitious scientists from all over the globe to enjoy a series of training workshops and a top-quality conference. Selected speakers are renowned in different Life Sciences research fields such as inflammation & immunology, plant biology, cancer biology, structural biology, neuroscience and microbiology. Workshops The Symposium is preceded by half a day of workshops to improve your personal effectiveness, communication skills and awareness on possible career opportunities. We have invited internationally renowned trainers to share their experience and knowledge with you. Note that you need to register separately for the workshops, after registering for the symposium. The number of seats for each workshop is limited, so make sure to choose your two favorite workshops in time. Take a look at the VIBES 2020 workshops program for more info. Travel Grants We offer 50 travel grants to international PhD students, which will reimburse travel costs up to 200 euros. Travel grant awardees will also receive a discount on their registration fee and accommodation will be covered for adjacent nights. Are you interested in attending VIBES2020 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 15 November. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance before 1 December 2019. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you’re awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not equivalate with being registered.

EMBO practical course on Integrative Modelling of Biomolecular Interactions
11 - 15 May 2020
Izmir, TurkeyEMBO practical course on Integrative Modelling of Biomolecular Interactions http://meetings.embo.org/event/20-biomolecular-interactions https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-on-integrative-modelling-of-biomolecular-interactions Proteins and their interactions are the mainstays of any cellular process. Studying these interactions at atomic detail is invaluable, paving the route to a mechanistic understanding of biological function and providing the first essential step towards the development of new drugs. Because of the costs and challenges associated with experimental techniques, structural biologists often turn to computational methods. This course will present docking-based computational methods and related bioinformatics approaches, aiming at predicting how proteins interact with other biomolecules or ligands. Lectures will provide the theoretical background on state-of-the-art algorithms for sampling and scoring docking models, describe the use of low- and high-resolution information, and conservation- and coevolution-based interface prediction methods. Further, to broaden the scope of the course beyond protein-protein interactions, we will cover protein-peptide docking, data-driven molecular simulations, and other relevant topics in the field, including modeling of large assemblies and membrane proteins. Roughly half of the course wil consist of practical sessions where the students will run computations on interesting biological problems. Finally, to encourage interaction between all participants and stimulate discussions, students will be prompted to present their own research, both in flash presentations and poster sessions, and bring their own research problems to dedicated troubleshooting sessions. 2020-05-11 09:00:00 UTC 2020-05-15 18:00:00 UTC Alexandre Bonvin, Ezgi Karaca and João Rodrigues Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center Dokuz Eylül University Health Campus Mithatpasa St. 58/5 35340 Balcova, Izmir/TURKEY, Izmir, Turkey Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center Dokuz Eylül University Health Campus Mithatpasa St. 58/5 35340 Balcova, Izmir/TURKEY Izmir Balçova Turkey 35340  email@example.com BrukerF1000 ResearchBioExcelEMBO Press  24 workshops_and_courses  Protein-Protein Complex modelingmodellingDockingInteractions
