Quantitative and Predictive Modelling course

When Where
Monday 26 June, 2017 - Friday 30 June, 2017 Wageningen

In this Quantitative and Predictive Modelling course the participants learn how to describe the dynamic behaviour of biological systems and to integrate experimental data. Concepts of modelling are introduced via a great variety of examples taken from diverse practices. The emphasis is on providing an introduction into modelling approaches rather than an in-depth treatment of a few techniques. So, the course provides a broad overview of Modelling in the Life Sciences and is as such useful for a broad audience.

MolMed course “How to make sense out of your RNA-Seq/microarray data”

When Where
Monday 03 July, 2017 - Friday 07 July, 2017 Erasmus MC Rotterdam, Netherlands

This is a 5-day course on gene expression data analysis using R, databases and Cytoscape (5th day, also offered as separate course). The course is tailored for biomedical researchers with gene expression data from RNA sequencing or microarray experiments.

MolMed course “Databases, Pathways and Cytoscape”

When Where
Friday 07 July, 2017 Erasmus MC Rotterdam, Netherlands

This is a one-day introduction course to databases, pathway analysis and biosemantics for the interpretation of gene lists such as generated by differential expression experiments. Practicals include the webtools DAVID and Anni, and the network tool Cytoscape. This course is useful for biomedical researchers with gene expression data as well as bioinformatics researchers who need an introduction to this specific field and tools.

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.
