  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

  • Software carpentry workshop

    1 - 3 April 2019

    Bergen, Norway

    Software carpentry workshop Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The WS is over three days. The first day will concentrate on Unix shell and Git, and day two and day three on R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis. 2019-04-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-03 17:00:00 UTC Bergen, Bergen, Norway Bergen Bergen Hordaland Norway 5008 University of BergenElixir Norway David Grellscheid <> [] Graduate StudentsResearchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Software Carpentry R-programmingUNIXShellReproducible Science

  • Data processing with R tidyverse

    14 - 17 May 2019

    Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

    Data processing with R tidyverse R is a powerful language for data science in many disciplines of research with a steep learning curve. The tidyverse group of packages provide a dialect that greatly simplifies data importing, cleaning, processing, and visualization as well as providing reproducible workflows, replacing many intricacies of R with clear and easy to learn syntax. 2019-05-14 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 17:00:00 UTC MSA 4.510, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg MSA 4.510 Esch-sur-Alzette Luxembourg University of Luxembourg [] Researchers 25 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Data analysis R-programming

  • Open Targets Genetics at ESHG

    15 June 2019


    Open Targets Genetics at ESHG In this workshop, we will introduce Open Targets Genetics Portal as part of the Open Targets ecosystem, highlighting variant-centric statistical evidence for prioritizing candidate causal variants at trait-associated loci, and identifying potential drug targets. We will present POSTGAP, a pipeline which merges genetic associations curated from literature with functional genomics, epigenetic and expression data (e.g., eQTL, promoter capture Hi-C, DNase hypersensitivity sites, regulatory elements) to resolve association signals at a locus and link each variant to its target gene(s) using a single evidence score. The portal also incorporates pre-computed fine-mapping at trait-associated loci across hundreds of UK Biobank phenotypes as well as cross-trait colocalization, furthering drug repurposing opportunities. This workshop will enable you to effectively use Open Targets Genetics to gain biological insight, prioritize genes, and inform target decision-making. Intended Audience: Attendees interested in the translational application of genetics and genomics with an emphasis on the identification of target genes of trait-associated loci, drug target identification, prioritisation and repurposing. Participants should bring their laptops for exploration of the Open Targets Genetics Portal in situ. 2019-06-15 09:00:00 UTC 2019-06-15 00:00:00 UTC Gothenburg, Sweden Gothenburg Sweden [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Open Targets
