Izobraževanje za delo na sekvenatorju Nanopore GridION

Spoštovani člani vozlišča ELIXIR Slovenija!

Vabimo vas na izobraževanje za delo na sekvenatorju Nanopore GridION, ki je del infrastrukture ELIXIR-SI. Oprema je dobavljena v okviru kohezijskega projekta ELIXIR-SI RI-SI-2.

Prva dva dneva (5. 10. in 7. 10.) sta dopoldan namenjena teoretični predstavitvi tehnologije Nanopore za aplikacije RNA in DNA, tretji dan (9. 10.) pa analizi podatkov. Teoretični del bo v celoti dostopen vsem zainteresiranim preko aplikacije ZOOM.

Praktični del bo izveden 5. 10. in 7. 10. popoldan na Medicinski fakulteti UL, v prostorih CFGBC IBK, Zaloška 4. Obsegal bo testna sekvenciranja RNA pod video nadzorom strokovnjakov Nanopore. Organiziran bo za omejeno število udeležencev, poleg skrbnikov opreme predvsem za raziskovalce z izkušnjami s tehnologijo Nanopore.

Podroben program in povezava sta navedena spodaj.

Vljudno vabljeni!

ELIXIR Microbial Community has new tools for Galaxy analysis

ELIXIR Microbial Community leads the effort to develop tools for analysis and design of microbial processes. Tools developed by the Community are now available in a Galaxy toolshed for Synthetic Biology and Metabolic Engineering. The Community is also preparing a new implementation study on how to integrate FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data sets into meaningful mathematical models.

ScienceEurope and OECD have published a report on optimising the use of national research infrastructures

ScienceEurope and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have published a joint report on how to improve national research infrastructures. The report is focused on the state of infrastructure in 12 OECD member states: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, UK and USA.

European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) is taking place

The 19th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) is taking place between August 31 and September 8. The event this year is virtual because of the Covid-19 pandemics. It is organized by ELIXIR Spain since the event was originally planned to take place in Barcelona in the traditional face-to-face format. The ECCB 2020 is a forum that brings together scientific communities from all over the globe for networking and keeping pace with cutting edge research in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology fields. It is the largest meeting for these scientific disciplines in Europe this year. The meeting program is available at this link .

Anyone interested to attend the event can still register (here is the link to the registration form). Participation fee has to be paid when you register – the fee is between 10 and 90 €, depending on the country, academic position and membership in the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). There is a reduced fee for group registration. The price list is available on the registration form page.
