    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55a9b56b-9f9c-47ee-8646-b194d3b0888f This technology transfer course will give you a flavour of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and how to protect your invention? What steps are necessary to commercialize your work? What does it take to set up a spin-off company? Different ways of turning your research into value for society. Supported by speakers from companies and investment firms, VIB’s Innovation & Business Team will go into detail on real life valorisation approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on your favourite topic. We will go through term sheets and contracts that shape the framework of industrial collaborations and investments. We will have a lively case study to highlight the potentially complex relationships between scientist, valorisation manager, and company representative. On top of that, you will be introduced to the various stages of setting up a start-up company. We warmly invite participants to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, so we can select a number of topics for the Newco pitching exercise which will be held in small teams. We will invite you to submit your abstract in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2021-08-23 09:00:00 UTC 2021-08-27 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Deep learning in biology

    22 - 23 November 2021

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning in biology https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-in-biology Large amounts of data and compute resources have enabled the development of high-performance machine learning models. This is particularly due to deep learning techniques. By looking at many data samples, these models can find structure in the data that is useful for predictive and explorative analysis: e.g. classification, clustering, data generation, dimensionality reduction, etc. The most popular applications within biotechnology are concerned with image segmentation, diagnostics, sequence analysis, etc. However, deep learning models are far from straightforward to implement correctly due to the many different hyperparameter settings, optimization procedures, architecture choices, etc. In this course, we will make use of Jupyter Notebook and PyTorch, which are both based on Python, to apply deep learning techniques on both bio informatics and bio image informatics data. We aim to work towards applications that participants would like to study. 2021-11-22 09:00:00 UTC 2021-11-23 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
  • Recombinant Protein Expression

    22 November 2021

    Elixir node event
    Recombinant Protein Expression https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/recombinant-protein-expression The training will start with an introduction on the available recombinant protein expression systems, with their advantages and limitations, from which to choose for your favorite protein. Also, high-throughput protein expression, expression in plant cells, antibody and nanobody expression and a difficult-to-express protein case will be discussed. A next session will focus on strategy design to optimize protein purification and how to address quality assurance of the purified proteins. For clinical use of a protein-based biological stability and production yields are critical issues that come on top of the desired therapeutic efficacy. Why and how to deal with these critical aspects will be addressed as well during the training. Furthermore, also the key steps that are required for optimal protein formulation will be reviewed. We plan to end the day with a keynote talk from a pharma industry speaker illustrating the issues that need to be considered when engineering recombinant proteins for clinical applications. 2021-11-22 09:00:00 UTC 2021-11-22 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
