  • Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (3rd edition)

    25 - 26 March 2019

    Antwerpen, Belgium

    Revolutionizing Next-Generation Sequencing (3rd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/revolutionizing-next-generation-sequencing-3rd-edition After two successful editions (Jan 2015, Leuven and March 2017, Antwerp), VIB is proud to present the third edition of this Tools & Technologies conference. VIB believes that the revolutionary discoveries enabled by NGS are not yet at its zenith and that the technology can go much further. During this 3rd edition VIB will bring together over 30 top scientists and technology developers form both industry and academia. They will discuss emerging tools and approaches in several sessions such as: • Long reads, Genome Structure and Mapping • Epigenomics • Metagenomics • Spatial transcriptomics • Population Scale and Clinical Sequencing • Single Cell Sequencing • Emerging technologies In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner. Also young scientists are encouraged to showcase their own work to the international research community by oral or poster presentation! Information for poster submissions: The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 11/02/2019 • Late Registration: 11/03/2019 • Abstract deadline: 21/01/2019 2019-03-25 08:00:00 UTC 2019-03-26 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences BluePoint Antwerpen, 9, Filip Williotstraat, Antwerpen, Belgium BluePoint Antwerpen, 9, Filip Williotstraat Antwerpen Antwerpen Belgium 2600 Mapping Population genomics Population genetics Sequencing Transcriptomics Metagenomic sequencing Metagenomics Epigenetics Epigenomics Genotyping experiment Genotype and phenotype Genomics [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be BioradBiokeLexogenAnalisBio-techneBGI [] 350 meetings_and_conferences [] Genome Structure Genome MappingEpigenomicsMetagenomicsSpatial transcriptomicsPopulation Scale clinical sequencingSequencingSingle Cell Sequencing

  • RepeatExplorer Workshop

    21 - 23 May 2019

    České Budějovice, Czechia

    Elixir node event
    RepeatExplorer Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/repeatexplorer-workshop The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of using next generation sequencing (NGS) data for analyzing repeat composition of plant genomes. Special emphasis will be given to repeat characterization methods implemented in the RepeatExplorer pipeline, including practical training in using the pipeline. The workshop should also serve as a platform for exchange of ideas and latest results with ample time dedicated to open discussions. Participants are encouraged to make short presentations of their research related to the workshop topic and/or bring their own data for practical training. The workshop is organized by the Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics of the Biology Centre AS CR. It will take place at the Academy of Sciences / University campus in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic. The meeting programme will include theoretical lectures and research reports combined with hands-on training (no programming skills required). In case of any questions or comments please contact Jiri Macas. 2019-05-21 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-23 18:00:00 UTC Institute of Plant Molecular Biology building at the Academy of Sciences and University campus in České Budějovice Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská, České Budějovice, Czechia Branišovská 1160/31, 31, Branišovská České Budějovice České Budějovice Czechia Institute of Plant Molecular Biology, České Budějovice, Czech Republic http://repeatexplorer.org/?page_id=14 [] Life Science Researchersbioinformaticians workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served next generation sequencingNext generation sequencing data analysisGalaxyRepetitive DNA Analysis
  • Open Targets Genetics at ESHG

    15 June 2019

    Sweden

    Open Targets Genetics at ESHG https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-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
