Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Pathogen Genomics
21 Mar 2021 - 26 Mar 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Technological advances have revolutionized our ability to observe the evolution of infections that are posing major global health challenges. However, using these new and high-resolution sources of data to improve health requires new theory -- new mathematical structures to understand patterns of ancestry and evolution in infectious diseases, new ways to map how antibiotic resistance emerges and spreads and new methods to combine data, modelling, inference and machine learning. This workshop will bring together mathematicians and statisticians, methods developers and biologists gathering state-of-the-art large datasets in pathogen genomics. The aims are to share not only mathematics and methods, but upcoming challenges and aims, and to ensure that large genomic datasets and the people that gather them have a voice in shaping methods and models towards the questions of the highest importance for pathogen evolution and ultimately for health.

DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • Berlin, Germany
Organizer:
ecSeq Bioinformatics events team
Abstract:
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.

event lab. GmbH
Abstract:
7 Jahre Mitteldeutsche Laborkonferenz bedeutet Abwechlungsreichtum aber auch Kontinuität und der Tradition der Veranstaltung, folgend dürfen wir Ihnen für 2021 erneut ein thematisch breit gefächertes Programm ankündigen. Das inhaltliche Spektrum spannt den Bogen von Themen der täglichen Routine über aktuelle analytisch-methodische Entwicklungen bis hin zu wegweisenden Technologien. Wichtig bleibt – und das kennzeichnet die Veranstaltung seit ihrer Geburt – der Bezug zur Klinik. Insofern sind wir sehr froh, eine Reihe von Referenten aus klinischen Fächern gewonnen zu haben, die die Bedeutung der engen Zusammenarbeit zwischen Klinik und Labordiagnostik in verschiedenen Bereichen illustrieren und Akzente setzen werden.

Online Course - A Practical Introduction to NGS Data Analysis
28 Apr 2021 - 30 Apr 2021 • Online, Germany
Organizer:
ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH
Abstract:
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina. All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this fast evolving research topic. The online course will make use of a web conferencing system. Hands-on NGS analysis will be performed in an interactive browser-based data analysis platform. Before the course, you will get a printed manuscript.

Abstract:
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce the concepts of bioinformatic pipeline development through the context of the open source Workflow Management System (WMS) Nextflow. The participants will be trained in the scripting, configuration and execution of example analysis pipelines based on current industry best-practices, and learn how to share them with other users. Finally, the participants will apply everything they have learned by implementing their own analysis pipelines from the ground up.

By the end of the workshop all attendees will be enabled to build their own scalable, reproducible bioinformatic pipelines which can be run locally, on high-performance computing clusters or even in the cloud. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of computational biology and allows scientists with little or no background in software development to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast-evolving area of expertise. This instructor-led live online workshop has been newly designed for an engaging, interactive online learning experience.

MCCMB — Moscow Conference on Computational Molecular Biology
30 Jul 2021 - 02 Aug 2021 • Moscow, Russia
Organizer:
Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology
Abstract:
Moscow Conference on Computational Molecular Biology (MCCMB) is a biennial forum in such areas as sequence analysis, structure of biopolymers, omics and systems biology, next generation sequencing, bioalgorithms, and molecular evolution. Since 2003, it traditionally takes place in Moscow, but despite its "local" title, it is an international conference attended by scientists from many countries, and invited talks are given by leaders in the field. The working language of the conference is English. As the epidemic and travel situation is not clear yet, we consider three possible modes of conferencing: off-line (definitely we would prefer it), completely online, and hybrid. All accepted abstracts will be indexed in the Russian Index of Scientific Citations (RINC).

Rules of Protein-DNA Recognition: Computational and Experimental Advances
31 Oct 2021 - 05 Nov 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The information that determines our genetic make-up – from our eye color to our propensity to get cancer or genetic diseases – is encoded in the DNA sequence of our genomes. This DNA information is interpreted by proteins called transcription factors that ‘read’ the four-letter code in our DNA, promoting the activation or repression of genetic programs. Unfortunately, we have been unable to decipher the non-protein-coding portion of our genomes, which comprises >95% of our DNA, even though we now have access to thousands of fully sequenced human genomes and the numbers are increasing daily. A fundamental problem of modern biology will be how to discern DNA differences between people that affect our physical differences and the manifestation of disease. As a result, a major challenge facing computational and structural biologists is to crack the DNA code that will allow us to understand the impact of DNA differences on protein-DNA interactions and gene expression. The solution to this challenge will likely come from the convergence of theoretical, computational, biophysical, and structural approaches. The BIRS format is ideal for bringing together this combination of scientists in an informal and collaborative setting to further advance this goal.
