MGC course ‘ Next Generation Sequencing data analysis ‘

WhenWhere
Monday 26 August, 2019 - Wednesday 28 August, 2019 LUMC, Leiden

The aim of the course is to give a broad overview of the different applications of NGS with a focus on different ways to analyse the data. Presentations will discuss specifically the different choices available for data analysis, why a specific approach was selected and which alternatives are available. The course will, besides discussing and demonstrating some generally applicable tools, not include practical data analysis nor discuss in detail specific algorithms used.

BioSB course: Machine Learning for Bioinformatics & Systems Biology

WhenWhere
Monday 07 October, 2019 - Friday 11 October, 2019 tba

In this one-week course, the foundations of machine learning will be laid out and commonly used methods for unsupervised (clustering, dimensionality reduction, visualization) and supervised (mainly classification) learning will be explained in detail. Methods will be illustrated using recent examples from the fields of systems biology and bioinformatics. Methods discussed in the morning lectures will be put into practice during the afternoon computer lab sessions.

BioSB course: Algorithms for Genomics

WhenWhere
Monday 14 October, 2019 - Friday 18 October, 2019 Delft

BioSB course: Constraint Based Modelling: introduction and advanced topics

WhenWhere
Monday 25 November, 2019 - Friday 29 November, 2019 Leiden University

Constraint-based modeling is a powerful modeling methodology that is being used to model a diverse range of biological phenomena. These include both fundamental and applied questions relevant to biotechnology, microbiology and medicine. Central to constraint-based modeling is the use of genome-scale reconstructions that represent particular cellular functions as a biochemical reaction network. In this course, you will be introduced to …..

BioSB course Modelling and Optimization for bioinformatics & systems biology

WhenWhere
Monday 09 December, 2019 - Friday 13 December, 2019 Wageningen, Netherlands

In this course the participants learn how to describe the dynamic behavior of biological systems, and how to use optimization techniques to solve a variety of problems in bioinformatics and systems biology. Concepts of modelling in terms of differential equations are introduced via a great variety of case studies taken from diverse practices. This course also provides you with the main ideas underlying optimization, and to get you acquainted with the optimization techniques that are nowadays available and widely used. Examples of optimization problems in life sciences will be presented and discussed.
