  • Population genomics: Background, tools and programming

    30 March - 6 April 2019

    Italy

    Population genomics: Background, tools and programming https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/population-genomics-background-tools-and-programming Study methods in population genomics have been profoundly reshaped in the last few years, fostered by a rapid growth of DNA sequence production and sharing. This unprecedented opportunity guided major steps forward in the field and calls for new approaches and computational skills to become routine in evolutionary genomics laboratories. The objectives of this EMBO Practical Course are to give an overview of the state of the art methods in population genomics, including programming, and to enable participants to run their project’s analyses with high confidence. The course combines lectures from outstanding experienced population geneticists with practice, both at individual and group level. All conceptual innovation will be presented in lectures and applied in practice. This EMBO Practical Course will cover coalescent, genetic diversity, natural selection, population demography in time and space, admixture, genetic clustering, and genome-wide association studies. Population genetics topics will be complemented by computational ones such as Python programming and machine learning techniques. This course aims at evolutionary biologists who already have basic bioinformatics skills. Ph.D. students and Postdoc researchers will benefit the most out of this course, but applications from all candidates will be evaluated in their context. 2019-03-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-06 17:00:00 UTC EMBO Procida, Italy Procida Italy Population genomics [] Organizing Secretariat Scientific Communication srl info@jeangilder.it +39 081 2296460 EMBO Evolutionary BiologistsPhD Studentspost-docs workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins-661da9dc-2159-4a34-8809-7851dfbe0b8a Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!
