8th Gene Quantification Event -- qPCR dPCR & NGS 2017
ID
850995
Dates
03 Apr 2017 - 07 Apr 2017
Location
Freising, Germany
Abstract
We want to invite you to participate at our next qPCR dPCR & NGS 2017 the world most recognized Gene Quantification Event taking place in 3rd - 7th April 2017 (www.qPCR-dPCR-NGS-2017.net). The focus topics are: Liquid Biopsy, Integrative Big Data Analysis, Biomarker Signature … and beyond

The great international interest in the previous qPCR dPCR & NGS Events from 2004 till 2015 with a constant average audience of more than 500 participants from all over the world motivates repeating the success next year in April 2017. Hence the date for the 8th international Gene Quantification Event is from 3rd to 7th April 2017. We broaden our focus in genomics applications from quantitative RT-PCR, over digital PCR to the latest Next Generation Sequencing technologies and the connected integrative Big Data Analysis. As done in previous years, we offer a three day scientific symposium with around 70 talks in two lecture halls. Parallel to the scientific symposium an Industrial Exhibition will take place where around 35-40 international companies will present their newest qPCR, dPCR and NGS services, hardware and technologies. The symposium will be followed by various 2-day PCR & NGS related Workshops taking place April 6th and 7th powered by leaders in the field.

Event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM School of Life Sciences (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany (https://goo.gl/maps/6d3BNCyUkKk) The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich are part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe (BioM), representing more than 250 companies and academic institutions, located close to the Munich airport (MUC) directly in the heart of Bavaria.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Neural circuits in the past, present and future
ID
806309
Dates
14 May 2017 - 17 May 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models to (i) discuss the origins, commonalities and differences of animal nervous systems, (ii) highlight the spectacular capabilities of neural circuits to control animal behaviour, and (iii) reflect on how technological innovations will open up new possibilities to understand and repair the nervous system. By bringing together a unique and eclectic mix of scientists studying nervous systems from the molecular to the psychological level, this symposium should stimulate novel cross-fertilisation of ideas and methodologies to understand neural circuit structure and function.

EMBL Course: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis
ID
834533
Dates
06 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The course participants will learn how to use BioConductor software and Illumina BaseSpace Cloud apps. In the first three days, the course covers various topics using the oneChannelGUI graphical interface. The last day is dedicated to providing the basics to move from the use of the graphical environment to command line. The basics of R scripting will be described and some of the workflows used in the first three days will be dissected and executed using command line approach. All computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets.

2017 IMB Conference: Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription
ID
879526
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 21 Jun 2017
Location
MAINZ, Germany
Abstract
Our conference will explore the latest findings and technological developments in the field of gene regulation. The regulation of gene expression is a highly complex process in which numerous different factors play a role, such as signalling pathways, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications. With the recent surge in the development of omics technologies, researchers have generated vast amounts of data describing the contribution of these factors to controlling gene activity. However, interpreting, validating and integrating the data remains a major challenge. A combination of quantitative analysis and experimental research is therefore crucial to draw a complete picture of gene regulation.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: From Single- to Multiomics: Applications and Challenges in Data Integration
ID
809632
Dates
12 Jul 2017 - 14 Nov 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that will enable us to address novel questions about the consequences of genetic and environmental perturbations in complex biological systems.

EMBL Course: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis
ID
834543
Dates
03 Oct 2017 - 06 Oct 2017
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The course participants will use BioConductor software and Illumina BaseSpace Cloud apps. R-coding skills and deep knowledge of statistics are not necessary for attendance because most analyses will be performed with OneChannelGUI (a graphical interface to a series of BioConductor tools, which enables handling microarray data analysis as well as RNA-seq data without requiring programming skills). Computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets. Upon request, participants could bring along their own data to analyse.

Abstract
This conference will provide an opportunity to learn about and keep up to date with the rapidly progressing area of cancer genomics. It will cover presentations from cancer genome projects, the areas of cancer functional genomics, systems biology, cancer mouse models and the translation and clinical impact of scientific results obtained. The meeting will bring together leading scientists from across these areas for a unique opportunity to interact and stimulate further integration of these efforts.

European Cancer Genomics research is particularly strong in the Heidelberg area, with three International Cancer Genome Consortium (www.icgc.org) projects being currently pursued with significant participation from Heidelberg institutions, including EMBL. As in our 2015 meeting, a large number of renowned speakers will be invited, with a strong representation of overseas speakers. The atmosphere at the conference will make this an exceptional event with cutting edge science, extensive scientific discussions and ample possibilities for meetings between and after sessions to facilitate in-depth discussions and new collaborations.
