  • Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins

    27 - 31 January 2020

    Disorder in Disorders: Pathogenic mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/disorder-in-disorders-pathogenic-mechanisms-of-intrinsically-disordered-proteins Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) are a highly abundant class of proteins that lack stable tertiary and/or secondary structures under physiological conditions. Numerous IDPs are associated with human diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, amyloidoses, neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes. Overall, intriguing interconnections among intrinsic disorder, cell signaling, and human diseases suggest that protein conformational diseases may result not only from protein misfolding, but also from misidentification, missignaling, and unnatural or nonnative folding. The winter school will alternate lectures to practicals. During lectures, experts of the field will provide students an overview of IDP biological mechanisms that develop pathogenic phenotypes. They will explore the concepts of folding, unfolding and misfolding, highlighting their differences and similarities. Practical exercises aim at transferring to students basic skills for the study of IDPs and will revolve around the use of bioinformatic tools to solve complex problems. The school includes a half-day workshop on ELIXIR interoperability services and support for the IDP Community. 2020-01-27 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-31 17:00:00 UTC Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Università degli Studi di Padova - Casa della Gioventù, Via Rio Bianco,12 Protein properties Protein disordered structure Bioinformatics University of Padova, Italy idpfun@ngp-net.bio.unipd.it [] PhD studentspostdoctoral researchersLife Science Researchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest intrinsically disordered proteinsprotein foldingbioinformatics
  • 1st Hands-on Computational Enzyme Design Course

    2 - 5 February 2020

    Brno, Czech Republic

    1st Hands-on Computational Enzyme Design Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/1st-hands-on-computational-enzyme-design-course The three-day interactive course will provide the essential theory and hands-on experience on a number of web-based tools suitable for enzyme mining and engineering activity, specificity, enantioselectivity, stability, and solubility. Participants will have the chance to discuss the optimal way to set-up calculations and adequately interpret the results with the developers of these tools. Special time will be devoted to the proteins of interest of the individual participants. At the end of this three-day course, you will be able to independently design proteins for your academic research or commercial application. 2020-02-02 15:00:00 UTC 2020-02-05 20:00:00 UTC Loschmidt Laboratories, Masaryk University University Campus Bohunice, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic, Brno, Czech Republic University Campus Bohunice, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic Brno Brno Czech Republic [] jitkasedlackova@mail.muni.cz [] AcademiaIndustryPhD studentsUndergraduate students workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest bioinformaticsprotein engineeringenzyme miningsoftware tools
  • Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition)

    13 - 14 February 2020

    Leuven, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (3rd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/applied-bioinformatics-in-life-sciences-3rd-edition Bioinformatics has quickly become an integral part of life sciences research by enabling innovative computational approaches in an increasingly data-dense environment. Inspired by the sold-out editions in 2016 and 2018, VIB (a non-profit life sciences research institute) is organizing this third edition to highlight recent developments in bioinformatics research, and to showcase its impact in medical, agricultural, and biotechnological research. Nationally and internationally renowned speakers will present recent scientific findings in applied bioinformatics. They will shed light on the future perspectives of their research in the following plenary sessions: - Microbial & plant genomics: from simple to complex - Structural bioinformatics and proteomics - Data integration, machine learning and networks - Single cell bioinformatics Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during poster sessions and the conference dinner. ### Speaker line-up: - Roser Vento, Sanger Institute, UK - Klaus Mayer, Helmholtz Zentrum München, DE - Thijs Ettema, Wageningen University, NL - Rohit Pappu, Washington University, US - Patrick Aloy, Structural Bioinformatics Lab, IRB Barcelona, ES - Helen Parkinson, EMBL-EBI, UK - Nick Loman, University of Birmingham, UK - Daifeng Wang, Stony Brook University, US - Aedin Culhane, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute & Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, US - Sushmita Roy, Dept. of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin, US - Olga Vitek, Northeastern University, US - Nikolai Slavov, Northeastern University, US - Evangelia Petsalaki, EMBL-EBI, UK - Ashley Lu, VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Sofia Forslund, Experimental and Clinical Research Centre (ECRC, a joint venture of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine and the Charité University Hospital), DE - Laurent Gatto, De Duve Institute – UC Louvain, BE - Erik Garrison, UC Santa Cruz, US ### Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending ABLS20 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 on 22 November 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 mean being registered for the conference.
