Metabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century
14 September - 4 December 2020Metabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/2020/Metabolomics-MOOC.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolomics-understanding-metabolism-in-the-21st-century-9e853a8f-6a6f-40e7-9854-021aa2c07370 Metabolomics is an emerging field that aims to measure the complement of metabolites (the metabolome) in living organisms. The metabolome represents the downstream effect of an organism’s genome and its interaction with the environment. Metabolomics has a wide application area across the medical and biological sciences. The course provides an introduction to metabolomics, describes the tools and techniques we use to study the metabolome and explains why we want to study it. By the end of the course you will understand how metabolomics can revolutionise our understanding of metabolism. This course is designed as a 4-week course and the Educators will support discussions and learning in weeks 1 to 4 responding to questions and comments. The course will remain open for 12 weeks in total; if you join the course after week 5 we encourage you to read posts / comments on the platform to aid your learning. The Educators will answer comments and questions at a lower frequency in weeks 5 to 12. 2020-09-14 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-04 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Metabolomics University of Birmingham email@example.com  ScientistsPhD studentsMaster studentsUndergraduate students workshops_and_courses  Metabolomics
Metabolomics Data Processing and Data Analysis
12 October - 6 November 2020Metabolomics Data Processing and Data Analysis https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/2020/Metabolomics-Data-Processing-and-Data-Analysis.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolomics-data-processing-and-data-analysis-3855a7d7-cf12-44e8-8d22-d6c252487ce0 This online course explores the tools and approaches that are used to process and analyse metabolomics data. You will investigate the challenges that are typically encountered in the analysis of metabolomics data, and provide solutions to overcome these problems. The materials in this course are delivered via the FutureLearn platform over a four week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. Each week you will work through a number of steps to complete the learning material. A step may include a short video, an article, an exercise with step-by-step instructions, a test or a discussion to interact with your peer or the educators. All of the course material is uploaded to the FutureLearn platform so that you can complete the steps at a convenient time for you. We (the educators) support your learning via social discussions where you will be able post questions and comments to the team of educators and the other learners on the course throughout the 4 weeks. In the final week of the course there is a live question and answer session with the entire team of educators. You will be provided with information to join the question and answer session via the FutureLearn platform and you can post questions in advance. The question and answer session will be recorded and a video uploaded to the FutureLearn platform. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 4-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able. 2020-10-12 09:00:00 UTC 2020-11-06 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Bioinformatics Metabolomics University of Birmingham firstname.lastname@example.org  ScientistsPhD studentsMaster students workshops_and_coursesmeetings_and_conferences  MetabolomicsData processingData analysis
Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics
30 November - 18 December 2020Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/metabolomics-training-centre/courses/2020/Quality-Control-and-Quality-Assurance-in-Metabolomics.aspx https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/quality-assurance-and-quality-control-in-metabolomics-fc8eb4e0-eaca-4a9a-8c76-1f3bf559d9a1 The application of quality assurance and quality control in the metabolomics field is vital to ensure the collection of high quality data. In this course you will explore the importance of quality assurance and quality control in both untargeted and targeted metabolomics studies. We will explain the difference between quality control and quality assurance and how to apply in your studies and laboratories. You will evaluate the types of quality control samples that can be applied in metabolomics, what is the most appropriate quality control sample to use in your research, and how to apply the data in your quality assurance procedure to produce robust and reproducible data. The materials in this course are delivered via the FutureLearn platform over a three week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. Each week you will work through a number of steps to complete the learning material. A step may include a short video, an article, an exercise with step-by-step instructions, a discussion to interact with your peer and a selection of quizzes, tests and polls to self-assess your own learning. All of the course material is uploaded to the FutureLearn platform so that you can complete the steps at a convenient time for you. We (the educators) support your learning via social discussions where you will be able post questions and comments to the team of educators and the other learners on the course throughout the three weeks. In the final week of the course we will record a summary video where we will respond to questions posted by you during the course. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 3-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able. 2020-11-30 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Metabolomics University of Birmingham  ScientistsPhD studentsMasters students meetings_and_conferencesworkshops_and_courses  MetabolomicsQuality AssuranceQuality Control

We are happy to confirm the new date: 8-9 December 2020. The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic. The different sessions will have a particular focus on precision medicine in general, starting from disease-oriented cases and lessons learned. Innovative and alternative therapeutic strategies in immune-mediated disorders will be presented, besides the regulatory challenges that companies and researchers are dealing with.

Plant Science for Climate Emergency
7 - 8 June 2021
Gent, BelgiumPlant Science for Climate Emergency https://www.vibconferences.be/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Conference%20website%20post&utm_campaign=Event%20posting&utm_content=Elixir https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency Climate change is one of the most serious threats humanity has ever faced. Developing crops that are more resilient to rapidly changing and harsher environments will be crucial for tomorrow’s food production. Green biotechnology offers solutions to maintain high food productivity while preserving the earth’s valuable ecosystems. In addition, plants may also play an important role in mitigating the rising levels of greenhouse gases. This VIB conference ‘Plant Science for Climate Emergency’ aims at reviewing current research on adapting plants to climate change as well as on using plants for mitigating the accumulation of greenhouse gasses. Twenty leaders in plant biotechnology will present the latest developments in sessions focused on drought tolerance, tolerance to high temperatures, salt and flooding tolerance, the effects of climate change on defense systems against insects and pathogens, carbon capturing plants, crop engineering and improvement, nitrogen use efficiency, and much more. Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during the poster sessions, the reception, and the conference dinner.
