  • New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease (Hybrid edition)

    27 - 28 October 2021

    Leuven, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease (Hybrid edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/new-horizons-in-alzheimer-s-disease-hybrid-edition Alzheimer’s Disease research is accelerating with exciting new insights into molecular and cellular mechanisms. This upcoming conference brings together some of the thought leaders in the field with young investigators to stimulate discussion and interaction. We anticipate further insights into the triangle amyloid, Tau and neuroinflammation and how these might provide novel therapeutic approaches. The following topics will be the focus of this conference: - Genes and environment - Synapse and circuitry - Mechanisms and models of disease - Seeds and spreading of disease Next to an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities (both live and virtual) during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner. **Information for poster submissions** The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best fourteen abstracts will be given a short talk slot in the plenary program. No registration is needed before submitting a abstract. The deadline for abstracts is 27 August 2021. All accepted poster submissions will have a chance to win one of the two SAO Poster Prizes. **SAO sponsored Travel grants and registration waive** SAO will sponsor 10 poster presenters (PhD or postdoc) for a travel grant plus registration fee waive. Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 30 July 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of August. **Speaker line-up** *Session 1: Genes and environment* - Lucía Chávez Gutiérrez VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Christopher Glass University of California, San Diego, US - Steven A.

  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    4 - 18 November 2021

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq.

  • Analysis of bulk RNA-seq data (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    15 - 29 November 2021

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of bulk RNA-seq data (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-bulk-rna-seq-data-online-live-training-372bd3c0-97bf-45a6-a35f-2a24a72033c7 PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. The aim of this course is to familiarize the participants with the primary analysis of RNA-seq data. This course starts with a brief introduction to RNA-seq and discusses quality control issues. Next, we will present the alignment step, quantification of expression and differential expression analysis. For downstream analysis we will focus on tools available through the Bioconductor project for manipulating and analysing bulk RNA-seq.
