CAS Personalized Molecular Oncology
1 October 2018 - 31 July 2019
Basel, SwitzerlandCAS Personalized Molecular Oncology https://advancedstudies.unibas.ch/courses/course/cas-personalized-molecular-oncology-191983 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cas-personalized-molecular-oncology The CAS in Personalized Molecular Oncology aims at providing a comprehensive and integrative view of the field, by covering all the aspects involved along the pipeline: (i) tumor biology and genetics, (ii) molecular pathology, (iii) clinical bioinformatics, and (iv) clinical oncology. First of its kind in Switzerland, it will focus on the methodologies used to generate, analyze and interpret patients’ molecular profiles, also touching upon the associated technical, regulatory and ethical challenges. As an important outcome, it will establish a common language between the wide range of professionals involved in the personalized oncology process, from biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists to clinicians, enabling an efficient and better informed use of e.g. genomic data for both routine clinical practice and clinical research. Moreover, it should empower professionals to develop a vision for their own institution, by critically evaluating the potential benefits and limitations of current and future developments in personalized oncology. The CAS is organized jointly by the University Hospital of Basel, the University Hospital of Lausanne, and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-07-31 17:00:00 UTC SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Pathologie Universitätsspital Basel, 40, Schönbeinstrasse, Basel, Switzerland Pathologie Universitätsspital Basel, 40, Schönbeinstrasse Basel Switzerland University Hospital of BaselSIB Swiss Institute of BioinformaticsUniversity Hospital of Lausanne Dr. Aitana Lebrand Clinical Bioinformatics SIB | Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Ch. des Mines 9 CH-1202 Genève Tel. +41 (0)22 379 02 67 email@example.com  Professionals involved in personalized molecular oncology, including laboratory managers, biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists, geneticists, clinicians and pharmaceutical company employees. workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Tumor biology and geneticsMolecular pathologyClinical BioinformaticsClinical oncology
Introduction to Python for Biologists
12 - 16 August 2019
Liverpool, United KingdomIntroduction to Python for Biologists https://forms.gle/mkjiASxS7sKBxeGo7 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-965f36b3-e040-43cd-bb06-f4e5e3cc588e Registration fee: £500 Places: 15 (first come, first served) Application deadline: 14th June 2019 DESCRIPTION Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. The instructor of the workshop is the Founder of Python for Biologists, Dr. Martin Jones. Format The workshop will take place over 5 days. Each day will consist of 2 half-day sessions, each consisting of a ~1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of practical exercises. It is important that attendees attend each session as they will use examples and exercises that build on the materials from previous sessions. For more information and a detailed syllabus please see the following link: https://pythonforbiologists.com/introduction-to-python-for-biologists Who should attend This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind. Requirements Attendees will require a level of biological and bioinformatics background so they can appreciate the examples and exercises (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). Attendees will require the ability to us a text editor (e.g. nano, vim, or gedit). No previous programming knowledge is required. Attendees will use their own laptops during the workshop. Instructions for any software to be installed will be sent out prior to the course. If you are not sure if this course is suitable for you please do not hesitate to contact Dr Martin Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) Please fill in the following form (https://forms.gle/mkjiASxS7sKBxeGo7) if you would like to register for the Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop. Applicants will be asked to pay a registration fee of £500. After the application deadline (14th of June) or when all places are fill applicants will be asked to pay for the workshop. Once your fee is paid your place on the course will be confirmed. 2019-08-12 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-16 17:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Research, University of Liverpool (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/genomic-research/) 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, United Kingdom 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L3 5SR University of Liverpool   15 workshops_and_courses  pythonbioinformaticsprogrammingintrobeginner
The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition)
10 - 11 October 2019
Leuven, BelgiumThe Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://vibconferences.be/event/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing  Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 email@example.com   meetings_and_conferences  Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology
