EMBL Course: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis
30 Sep 2019 - 04 Oct 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course will teach scientists how to analyse biological data sets using open-source software. Most of the analysis will be performed with docker4seq package, which was developed to facilitate the use of computing demanding applications in the field of NGS data analysis. Docker4seq package uses docker containers that embed demanding computing tasks (e.g. short reads mapping) into isolated containers. This approach provides multiple advantages: the user does not need to install all the software on its local server, the results generated by different containers can be organised in pipelines and reproducible research is guarantee by the possibility of sharing the docker images used for the analysis.

EMBL Course: Computing Skills For Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry
16 Oct 2019 - 18 Oct 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This workshop provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing.

EMBL Course: Humanized Mice in Biomedicine: Challenges and Innovations
03 Nov 2019 - 08 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
In the last decade, several new genetically modified immune deficient mouse strains have been developed. They allowed high levels of engraftment of the human immune system, tissues and tumours. These models have become highly relevant for basic research to understand the function of the human immune system and the development of human pathologies (infections and cancer) in vivo. They are also being increasingly used as potency and safety models to evaluate new therapies and approaches in regenerative medicine prior to testing in humans. This course will cover all aspects of the topic, including conceptual and technical classes on human stem cell transplantation and immune reconstitution, infections with human-specific pathogens (EBV, HIV, HCV, HBV, Ebola, Adenovirus), in vivo modelling using patient-derived xenografts (PDX) of solid tumours and leukaemia models as well as regenerative approaches for the liver.

EMBO Practical Course: The Fundamentals of High-End Cell Sorting
11 Nov 2019 - 15 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course on the fundamentals of high-end cell sorting will enable scientists to properly use the global upstream technology of cell sorting with high confidence. Cell sorting is essential to many studies, but researchers outside of core facilities have very limited knowledge how exactly sorting works and unknowingly produce erroneous samples or even scientifically crippling data. The course is intended for PhD students and postdocs who are starting to use, or already using flow cytometry based cell sorting in their research projects. Applicants with some previous active knowledge of basic principles of flow cytometry and a regular use of flow cytometers in daily research will profit most from the content of the course.

Abstract:
Metabolism and Epigenetics are intricately linked, playing a key role in development, cancer, immune signaling and aging. This symposium brings together world-leading researchers exploring this nexus.

Abstract:

We cordially invite you to join the 5th Bioinspired Materials 2020 Conference on the design of functional materials and systems inspired by principles found in living nature. The main aim is to establish an international and interdisciplinary forum for scientists from a variety of fields including biology, chemistry, materials science and engineering, physics and medicine to discuss current cutting-edge research and to identify future research directions in the field of bioinspired materials. Main topics include the formation of hierarchical structures and the properties of complex-shaped biological materials. The transfer of biological principles onto adaptive and autonomous functional materials and systems made of organic and/or inorganic components represents a further main area. Beside synthesis and formation, the conference topics also include research on the functional and mechanical materials properties, the interaction of bioinspired materials with living environments, e.g. tissues and organs, and applications related to medical aspects. A topical focus will also be covering biofabrication.
