    CAS Personalized Molecular Oncology 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 aitana.lebrand@sib.swiss [] 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

  • 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
