    INB: Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/inb-spanish-national-bioinformatics-institute The Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (‘Instituto Nacional de Bioinformática’ in Spanish, or short INB), founded in 2003 following the decentralized model of nodes of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), is the bioinformatics technology platform of the Carlos III Health Institute (‘Instituto de Salud Carlos III‘ or ISCIII) since January 2018. The INB has increased the participant nodes to 19 research groups distributed across 13 institutions in Spain. The two main overarching objectives are maintaining and increasing the alignment of the INB with ELIXIR (European Life Science Infrastructure for Biological Information) looking for deeper synergies, while increasing the translational capacity of the INB towards the Spanish National Health System (SNS). The INB serves in the coordination, integration and development of Spanish bioinformatics resources in projects in the areas of genomics, proteomics and translational medicine. It has contributed to the creation of a consistent computational infrastructure in the area of bioinformatics, participated in national and international genome projects, and trained bioinformatics users and developers. The INB is in a strategic position as an interface between developments at the national and international level by research centers, initiatives such as the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), and organizations such as ELIXIR, and bioinformatic groups directly related to clinical practice. **Spain is member of ELIXIR since 2015, with the INB as the Spanish national node**. Within ELIXIR, the INB is responsible for the bioinformatics infrastructure offered by Spain, and therefore, should guarantee its alignment to the strategic areas put forward by ELIXIR. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/110/original/logoINB.png?1550073283

    Seqera Labs https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/seqera-labs Founded by the creators of [Nextflow](http://www.nextflow.io), Seqera Labs mission is to foster the adoption of professional open source software and strengthen the community effort around the Nextflow ecosystem. We organize training events for your team or organization. These are intended for anyone who wishes to learn about the technology, starting from basic through to advanced concepts. Our most popular intensive two-day course includes topics on containerization, cloud deployment, Git integration and best practices for reproducibility. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/111/original/Seqera_Labs_-_grey.png?1553771707

    • EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility

      4 - 8 October 2021

      Elixir node event
      EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-research-to-service-planning-and-running-a-bioinformatics-core-facility-62ea6744-3a2b-4478-886d-69be519d5e25 Computational core facilities play a vital role in enabling molecular life science, and the number of such facilities has grown considerably. There are many relatively inexperienced managers of core facilities, who often have to juggle their own research projects with the development and operation of services. This can be exceptionally challenging, not least because scientific impact tends only to be recognised and rewarded for research. The "EMBO Practical Course | Research to Service: Planning and Running a Bioinformatics Core Facility" is aimed at newly appointed managers of bioinformatics core facilities, especially those with one foot in the research camp, or those managers willing to stabilize and grow their services. The training set will provide an opportunity to learn from experienced core facilities managers on how to build a framework for the future development, resourcing, operation and impact assessment of your core services. By the end of the course, participants will have learned how to: *Identify the strengths and limitations of their core facility and prioritise areas for improvement *Design bioinformatics services and training using a user-centred approach and assuring best practices *Estimate the computing and human resources required to operate their facility effectively *Support users to manage their data, including sensitive data 2021-10-04 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-08 14:00:00 UTC Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center (IBG), INCLIVA Health Research Institute, Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) Bioinformatics INB/ELIXIR-ESBSC BSC Organising Team: embo.bioinfocore@bsc.es [] Core Facility Managers 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest managing skillsdata managementsustainabilityservice designcomputing resourcesstorage needs
