  • Recombinant Protein Expression, postponed

    9 June 2020

    Elixir node event
    Recombinant Protein Expression, postponed 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. 2020-06-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-06-09 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []

    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55fa806f-9e39-49d7-87ed-9af27cbce588 In short, the technology transfer course is designed to give you an idea of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and what to do to protect your invention; What steps are necessary to commercialize your work; The VIB-approach to starting innovative companies, and Different ways of turning your research into value for society. In the annual Technology Transfer course, the VIB Innovation & Business Team, supported by external speakers from industry, will go into detail on the practicalities of real life valorization approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on the topics for the pitch exercise. We will go through the 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, Innovation & Businessmanager and company representative, and give an overview of the various stages of starting a new venture. If you want to participate, you will be asked to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, for selection of topics for the Newco pitching exercise (in groups). More information will follow via email when we receive your registration. Please note that who submits an abstract will get priority to attend the course. Submitting your abstract will be possible on the website in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2020-08-24 09:00:00 UTC 2020-08-28 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
  • A tour of machine learning: classification

    31 August - 1 September 2020

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    A tour of machine learning: classification https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification-67c1e87f-922a-469a-8aaa-f93f3b51b01b Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest. 2020-08-31 09:00:00 UTC 2020-09-01 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • ReproHack - A hackaton on reproducible data analysis

    20 October 2020

    Elixir node event
    ReproHack - A hackaton on reproducible data analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/reprohack-a-hackaton-on-reproducible-data-analysis During a ReproHack, participants attempt to reproduce published research of their choice from a list of proposed papers with publicly available associated code and data. This approach should provide a low-pressure environment to actually get working with other people's code and data. Besides evaluating the analysis of papers, this hackaton is also about working together, networking and learning from each other!  Disclaimer: It’s imperative to note that this event is by no means an attempt to criticize or discredit work. We see reproduction as beneficial scientific activity in itself, with useful outcomes for authors and valuable learning experiences for the participants and the research community as a whole. Nominate a paper We accept nominations from anyone. Both researchers that have submitted a paper and would like to test whether one of your own papers is reproducible, and researchers that want to dig into the code of another paper! Either way, we encourage proponents to seek consent from the original authors for their nominations. Nominate a paper via this link. The papers will be assembled and showcased before selection via this link.  Register as participant Join us at the hack to dig into exciting science, learn more about reproducibility, working with other people's code and data and more. 2020-10-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-10-20 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
