  • Open Life Science

    1 January - 22 April 2020

    Open Life Science https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/open-life-science The Open Life Science program helps **early stage researchers and potential academic leaders** in becoming **Open Science ambassadors**. Any questions? We are here to help - feel free to email [hello@openlifesci.org](mailto:hello@openlifesci.org) or connect with us on Twitter [@openlifesci](https://twitter.com/openlifesci). ## About This is a **15-week long personal mentorship and cohort-based training**, where participants (organisers, hosts, mentors and mentees) of this program will: - share their expertise and gain knowledge essential to create, lead, and sustain an Open Science project - connect with members across different projects, communities, backgrounds, and identities - empower each other to become effective Open Science ambassadors in their communities We are recruiting for our first cohort of mentees for the first round that starts in January 2020. We are also inviting mentors, experts and content developers to join us in shaping this program. ## Projects Participants will join this program with a project that they either are already working on or want to develop during this program. Your project ideas can range from solving technical questions, to creating an open data project or report, developing open source software project, writing open publication, facilitating community/team culture movements, advancing open educational resource or contributing to other existing projects/community. All applications are welcome, whether your project is just an idea at this stage, or something that is running for years, but, your projects must: - promote one or several [Open Science practices](https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/content/what-open-science-introduction) (i.e. Open Access, Open Source, Citizen Science, ) in life science - state a possible measurable outcome (i.e. feature, module, or minimum viable product) from this program - create an inclusive space and welcome contributions from their community members ### Why focus on life science? Modern life science and related communities stand in the interface of computational and biological research. This position provides an exciting opportunity for new scientists to understand and welcome "open by design" practices. We understand that our curriculum is applicable to various fields, but we want to focus on life science community/projects with this program due to an urgent need to promote open practices in this field. If you have a project idea that is not directly related to life science, we will ask you to describe how you aim to advance openness in life science through your work. ### What's in it for you? We want to make this program mutually beneficial for all the participants. Here are a few values we think you will receive from participating in this project. - Become a contributing member of this community - Collaborate with others in Open Science projects - Exchange skills with others and build your own profiles - Highlight and promote your resources - Gain insights from other experts in the field - Work on a short-term projects and publish online - Get recognition and acknowledgement for your work - Co-develop this program by sharing feedback ## Timeline ## The program itself *To illustrate the program, we will share the persona/story of Joy, a mentee participating in the program, and Sam, their personal mentor, as they progress through their open science journey.* In their applications, they will indicate their interests in the topics related to Open Science in bioinformatics. Joy will provide a short outline of their project, and Sam will list their expertise that they want to share with their mentee. After the selection process, they will be involved in the following steps of this program: 1. Based on their common interests, they will be introduced to each other as suitable mentee and mentor They will meet every 2 weeks. In these **mentee-mentor calls** (around 30 minutes), Sam will help Joy evaluate their understanding of the new topics, and review their progress by providing constructive feedback. Joy will be given relevant exercises before these calls to help them apply new skills in their project. When needed, Joy and Sam will be able to connect with other [experts](about#experts) and get consulted on their project. 2. Joy will participate to online calls where relevant contents related to Open Life Science is shared and discussed with all participants of the program. In these **cohort calls**, the program leaders will introduce new topics and resources, facilitate break-out discussions, and invite experts from the field to give talks. In the first call Joy will get to know all the participants of the program, present their project, learn about others' projects. A final cohort call will allow Joy to present their project to other participants and exchange values. 3. Sam will participate to **mentoring training** with topic-based discussions with other mentors aimed at enhancing their mentoring skills. After the 15 weeks of the program, a self-evaluation survey will help Joy and Sam in positioning their knowledge in open science leadership before and after the program. For the next round, Joy may share what they learnt by mentoring a project and Sam continue their mentor effort and/or become an expert ## Applications This program will focus on Open Science in the life sciences and bioinformatics domains. We are particularly keen to connect with the participants from less-represented European countries such as Hungary, Greece, Estonia, and Cyprus. We also invite applicants from outside Europe, particularly from developing countries (e.g. India and Africa - who are also timezone-compatible). Cohort calls will be conducted in English. However, our participants who have different primary languages such as Spanish, French, German, Hindi, and Portuguese, will be paired with mentors who can communicate in their preferred languages. 2020-01-01 09:00:00 UTC 2020-04-22 17:00:00 UTC Open Life Science Bioinformatics Biology [] hello@openlifesci.org [] PhD studentsLife Science ResearchersBioinformaticians and wet-lab biologistsresearch software engineers and research data managers working with ELIXIR-supported tools and resources workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest openlifesciolsopen sourceopen accessOpen scienceopen datapreprints

  • EMBO practical course on Integrative Modelling of Biomolecular Interactions

    11 - 15 May 2020

    Izmir, Turkey

    EMBO practical course on Integrative Modelling of 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 [] embo2020.intmod@gmail.com BrukerF1000 ResearchBioExcelEMBO Press [] 24 workshops_and_courses [] Protein-Protein Complex modelingmodellingDockingInteractions
