MGC Next Generation Sequencing data analysis

When Where
Wednesday 30 August, 2017 - Friday 01 September, 2017 LUMC Leiden

The course aims at PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers who are interested in, planning, or already working with next-generation sequencing. We welcome researchers from both the genomics and bioinformatics fields. Currently available technologies as well as hardware and software solutions will be presented and discussed. The focus of the course will be on the data and ways to analyse the data.

NGS in DNA Diagnostics

When Where
Monday 11 September, 2017 - Wednesday 13 September, 2017 ErasmusMC Rotterdam, The Netherlands

VKGL/VKGN ‘NGS in DNA diagnostics’ is a course aimed at Genomic Resequencing in a Medical Diagnostic Context, i.e to apply Next Generation Sequencing data as diagnostic tool in the hospital. Lectures will be accompanied with hands-on exploration.

BioSB HotTopics meeting: Single Cell Analysis

When Where
Thursday 21 September, 2017 LUMC, Leiden

On September 21, 2017 Delft University and LUMC are organizing an afternoon BioSB HotTopics meeting on the subject of Single Cell Analysis.

Course: Pattern Recognition (5th edition)

When Where
Monday 25 September, 2017 - Friday 29 September, 2017 Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In this course, we will introduce basic techniques from the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning to solve such problems. We will introduce the pattern recognition pipeline: measuring, feature extraction and selection, classification and evaluation.

3Gb-TEST Next-Generation Sequencing Course

When Where
Monday 25 September, 2017 - Wednesday 27 September, 2017 Ljubljana, Slovenia

A 3-day course on NGS Ljubljana, Slovenia in the period of 25-27 October 2017. The focus of the course is on clinical diagnostics using exome/genome sequences, variant identification and analysis including afternoon practical sessions.

Protein structures: production, prowess, power, promises, and problems

When Where
Monday 30 October, 2017 - Friday 03 November, 2017 CMBI, Nijmegen

In the right hands, protein structures are a ‘power’ful tool to answer bio-molecular questions. Knowledge of the structure is a pre-requisite for rational drug design, for biotechnology, for chemical biology, and for answering a whole series of biomedical questions. In this course we will discuss the ‘production’ of protein structures by NMR, X-ray, and homology modelling. These methods all have their pro’s and cons so a certain ‘prowess’ is needed to follow all ‘promises’ and start attacking bio-medical ‘problems’ using protein structures.

Variant effect prediction

When Where
Tuesday 31 October, 2017 - Wednesday 01 November, 2017 Breda

DNA sequencing, incl. NGS, is a standard technology used in most modern laboratories. When the focus is on the identification of variants in the sequence, the next challenge is to evaluate these variants and their potential consequences. The “Variant Effect Prediction” course has been developed to show what one can do to predict the consequences on DNA, RNA and protein level, i.e. to classify the variants.

Applied Microbial Genomics

When Where
Thursday 02 November, 2017 - Friday 10 November, 2017 Nijmegen

Biotechnology research generates large-scale data, and specifically genomics data. But can this data and/or information effectively be used to answer your industrial microbiological research question? This course will teach you to consider and work with data-analysis strategies, which will provide an answer to many of your questions relating to available (micro)biological data. And the course will zoom in on important issues to consider when generating new data for your model system.

Optimisation techniques in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

When Where
Monday 12 February, 2018 - Friday 16 February, 2018 Wageningen

In many different problems from bioinformatics and systems biology (e.g. multi parameter estimation, reverse engineering of gene networks, multi-alignment problem, 3D structure prediction etc.) various optimisation methods are applied. In this course you will get acquainted with the underlying mathematics of optimization and with a selection of local and global optimization methods. In addition, throughout this course a great variety of examples of optimization problems in life sciences will be presented and discussed.

BioSB 2018 conference

When Where
Tuesday 15 May, 2018 - Wednesday 16 May, 2018 Congrescentrum De Werelt, Lunteren

The 4th edition of the Dutch Bioinformatics & Systems Biology conference will be organised on May 15 & 16, 2018 at the congrescentrum De Werelt in Lunteren. The BioSB 2018 conference discusses the latest developments in bioinformatics, systems and computational biology and interrelated disciplines, and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences & health, agriculture, food & nutrition.
