BioSB Hot Topics meeting: ONT Nanopore sequencing

When Where
Thursday 20 April, 2017 TU Delft

Nanopore sequencing has been revolutionizing the sequencing arena for the last few years. The last decade, sequencing went from highly-specialized to a commodity product that can be readily purchased from a specialty provider. ONT has taken this again a step further and is now enabling anyone to get into ‘do-it-yourself’ sequencing. Sequencing now requires no capital investment, very little in lab setup and anybody with a steady hand can start to generate data. While the technology has tremendous potential, there are still a few teething problems and sharing expert knowledge is critical to realize its full potential. Luckily, there is a comparatively large expert-user community within the Netherlands. The goal of this meeting is to bring us together and strengthen information sharing and collaboration within the Netherlands and beyond.

SMRT Leiden 2017: Scientific symposium & Informatics developers meeting

When Where
Tuesday 02 May, 2017 - Thursday 04 May, 2017 Leiden

The 2017 SMRTLeiden Meeting includes two back-to-back events: SMRT Scientific Symposium and the second European SMRT Informatics Developers Meeting. The SMRT Scientific Symposium is a two-day event on May 2 and 3 that features presentations from key experts and opinion leaders sharing their scientific discoveries and novel analytical achievements using PacBio® sequencing platforms.

Course: Kick start R (4th edition)

When Where
Friday 19 May, 2017 Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

This is a one-day introduction to the possibilities of the statistical calculation environment R for those who would like to use it, or have already started using R for statistical data analysis but would like to obtain a bit more background. We will start with a lecture in which the philosophy behind the R-language will be explained.

International Chemical Discovery & Design Course

When Where
Monday 12 June, 2017 - Friday 23 June, 2017 CMBI, Radboudumc, Nijmegen

This course covers the recent advances in discovery informatics, with a focus on the application to real life problems. The course, combining practicals and lectures, will introduce and discuss different scientific concepts as well as providing an opportunity to gain practical experience using industry standard software.

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.

JOBIM 2017 (Lille) : 3rd BeNeLuxFra Student Symposium

When Where
Monday 03 July, 2017 - Thursday 06 July, 2017 Lille, France

We are very pleased to introduce our new annual symposium that will be held as a satellite meeting of JOBIM 2017 in Lille. This new edition will also be the 3rd BeNeLuxFra Student Symposium, co-organized with RSG Luxembourg, RSG Belgium and RSG Netherlands. The program includes keynotes, round tables, oral communication from early-stage researchers. Read…

NGS in DNA Diagnostics

When Where
Tuesday 19 September, 2017 - Thursday 21 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.

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.

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.
