  • WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists - November 2020

    12 November 2020

    WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists - November 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-online-data-analysis-for-biologists-november-2020 Galaxy is an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience. It is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It also captures run information so that workflows can be saved, repeated and shared efficiently via the web. This interactive beginners workshop will provide an introduction to the Galaxy interface, histories and available tools. The material covered in this workshop is freely available through the Galaxy Training Network. 2020-11-12 14:00:00 UTC 2020-11-12 17:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia, Australia Australia Australia Bioinformatics [] [] Biologists workshops_and_courses [] GalaxyData analysislifescience
  • Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research

    19 - 20 November 2020

    Leuven, Belgium

    Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/emerging-technologies-in-single-cell-research Biomedical research is at a turning point. Single cell technologies are opening extraordinary opportunities to address today’s medical challenges. These new tools will enhance our molecular understanding of functional cell states. They will give us major insights into when, how and why diseases of all kinds arise. Working at the cutting edge of this field, VIB has teamed up with LifeTime, a pan-European research initiative that wants to combine single-cell multi-omics, advanced imaging, artificial intelligence/machine learning and personalized disease models to fundamentally change the current medical practice. At the first edition of Emerging Technologies in Single Cell research, a two-day conference, VIB and LifeTime will bring together top researchers in the fields of multi-omics and artificial intelligence. Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending SingleCell20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 27 September 2020. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of June. 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.

  • Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT)

    30 November 2020 - 31 January 2021

    Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-comparative-genomics-using-artemis-comparison-tool-act-3e9f10a2-bd0a-4af3-bc39-0d11856143e2 # Overview * **Duration**: 3 weeks, 5 hours per week * Free * Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 3 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? Disease outbreaks are still a big problem in our modern world. Comparison between two or more bacterial genomes can help improve understanding of the causes of pathogenicity and outbreaks of disease caused by bacteria. On this course you will learn how to use the free Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT). Developed at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, ACT will help you to visualise the comparison of genomes and analyse the results. ### Who is the course for? This course would benefit those interested in learning how to use tools to investigate and research bacterial genomes, and acquire bioinformatics skills to evaluate the role of microbial genes in disease. Learners will gain experience in comparative genomics, using the Artemis Comparison Tool to probe, visualise and compare genomes, and analyse the results. This course will be of interest to anyone interested in microbiology, including undergraduates, post-graduates, biomedical researchers, microbiologists, bioinformaticians, teachers, and healthcare professionals. The opportunity to gain experience in using the Artemis Comparison Tool, a computational tool designed for comparative genomics, will also be of interest to all those who have studied our pre-requisite courses: those with an interest in genomics and disease outbreaks, teachers and their 16-18-year-old science and computing students. Ideally, you will have completed [Bacterial Genomes: From DNA to Protein Function Using Bioinformatics][1] and [Bacterial Genomes: Accessing and Analysing Microbial Genome Data][2] before joining this course. [1]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-dna-protein-function-bioinformatics-online-sep19/ [2]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-accessing-analysing-microbial-genome-data-feb19/ # Programme ### What topics will you cover? Week 1 * Introduction to comparative genomics * Introduction to ACT Week 2 * Analyse available data * Generate your own comparison files * Make your own comparisons in ACT Week 3 * Identify pseudogenes in Mycobacterium leprae using ACT * Peer review project: Comparative genomics on two clinically relevant plasmids from Shigella ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * Explain the advantages of comparative genomics * Explore basic tools of ACT * Interpret results from already generated comparison files * Produce new comparisons and analyse results * Develop hypothesis based on results observation ### What software or tools do you need? This course will give you an opportunity to learn about and use Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT), a free tool used to display pairwise comparisons between two DNA sequences. To run this software effectively, you will require a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with 2GB RAM. The current version of ACT requires version 11 of Java to run successfully. Java 11 can be downloaded from [this link][1]. Older versions of ACT require Java 8 to run successfully. Java 8 can be downloaded from [this link][2].
