Course: Algorithms for Biological Networks (5th edition)

When Where
Monday 25 June, 2018 - Friday 29 June, 2018 Wageningen University & Research

In this course, we will first give a brief overview of molecular biology, the advent of high-throughput measurement techniques and large databases containing biological knowledge, and the importance of networks to model all this

Transcriptomics and Single Cell RNA-Seq Analysis

When Where
Sunday 26 August, 2018 - Friday 31 August, 2018 Leuven, Belgium

The first Belgium-Dutch Transcriptomics Summer School will be organised in Leuven, Belgium, from August 26-31, 2018. The Summer School is an unmissable learning opportunity for all life scientists analysing transcriptomics data! The aim of the course is to keep up with recent developments in transcriptome data analysis and bring own data along to analyse during the course under the supervision of expert trainers. This will provide the ultimate hands-on experience in Next Generation Sequencing data processing.

MGC Next Generation Sequencing data analysis

When Where
Monday 27 August, 2018 - Wednesday 29 August, 2018 LUMC, Leiden, Netherlands

his 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 solutions will be presented and discussed. The focus of the course will be on data and ways to analyse the data.

NGS in DNA Diagnostics Course

When Where
Tuesday 04 September, 2018 - Thursday 06 September, 2018 ErasmusMC, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

This course is intended for bioinformaticians, researchers and molecular & clinical geneticists. The mixed programme will appeal to all those requiring a solid background in the application of NGS techniques for (routine) genetic diagnosis of a patient. The course will be mainly in English. 

ECCB 2018

NETTAB 2018 – Building a FAIR Bioinformatics environment

When Where
Monday 22 October, 2018 - Wednesday 24 October, 2018 Genoa, Italy

NETTAB 2018 is organised in collaboration with ELIXIR Nodes of the UK and Italy as well as the Italian Society of Bioinformatics, BITS. The main focus will be on FAIR principles in bioinformatics, a challenging topic that we hope will attract many researchers from all over the world, including but not limited to, Bioinformaticians, Biologists, Computer Scientists, and others working or interested in the above research scope.

Systems Epigenetics: Towards Precision Cancer Medicine

When Where
Tuesday 27 November, 2018 - Friday 30 November, 2018 Amsterdam, Netherlands

This conference brings together scientists from multidisciplinary fields. We will discuss various aspects of epigenetic regulation (e.g. higher order chromatin folding, chromatin enhancer regulation, dynamics of chromatin and nuclear organization and epigenomics) in the context of cancer initiation, progression and treatment.
