Translational Bioinformatics Workshop 2016
ID
757880
Dates
22 Feb 2016 - 26 Feb 2016
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
Places are now available on the Translational Bioinformatics Workshop, led by NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Guy’s & St Thomas’ and King's College London.This five-day intensive course will cover key aspects of modern genomics data analysis, including next-generation sequencing and applications to drug target and biomarker discovery. The workshop is based on theoretical lectures from International subject experts, coupled with practical and interactive ‘hands-on’ (learn by doing) sessions. On completion participants will be equipped with a solid conceptual framework of the application of genomics/bioinformatics to translational research and with methodological skills to start analysing genomics data.

Genetics in Forensics
ID
738946
Dates
14 Mar 2016 - 15 Mar 2016
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
Oxford Global is proud to present the Genetics in Forensics Congress, on the 14th and 15th of March 2016 in central London. Over two days our event will bring together 150 senior level attendees from academia, research institutes and forensic laboratories to discuss the current challenges and future opportunities in DNA profiling and human identification. Day one features a stream dedicated to exploring the opportunities and challenges of NGS, including statistical analysis and interpretation of DNA profiles. On day two the focus turns to the most exciting research into DNA markers, including how to handle degraded DNA samples, strategies for familial search, and rare DNA variants.
Topics

Genome Editing and Gene Modulation Congress 2016
ID
737449
Dates
06 Apr 2016 - 08 Apr 2016
Location
Oxford, United Kingdom
Abstract
The congress will address applications of genome editing and gene modulation technologies in a variety of systems. This meeting will develop upon our ongoing RNAi series of conference at Oxford since 2006 and our 1st CRISPR symposium in 2015. The Congress will take an ‘application-based approach’ to its scientific agenda and will include genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR, TALENs and ZNF and gene modulation approaches, such as RNAi and antisense oligos. The Congress will be co-hosted with our 3rd annual Aptamers 2016, 2nd annual Oligos 2016 Oxford and 1st annual Exosome 2016 Oxford and 11th annual RNAi 2016.

Bioinformatics Tools for Functional Annotation and Variance Modelling
ID
784579
Start date
27 Apr 2016
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
The recent technological revolutions in molecular biology, especially in genomics, have led to a flood of new sequence data. Due to this overwhelming deluge it is not feasible to experimentally characterize every protein encoded in these sequencing efforts.

To address this issue a range of bioinformatics tools and methods are now available: providing predictions of functional annotations using experimentally characterised sequences and structures. In addition, Next Generation Sequencing is allowing us to study the individual variance between genomes within a population.

This training event aims to provide an introduction to a range of computational tools that can be used to functionally annotate protein sequences and structures. It will also introduce some of the latest molecular modelling software for analysing single nucleotide polymorphisms.

Participants will be able to gain hands on experience of these tools and are strongly encouraged to bring their own data.

Many of the proteins singled out for study using these tools are often associated with disease. The workshop will explore how these tools can be used in a pre-competitive drug discovery setting. The event will be of interest to any researchers, both in academia or industry, who are requiring functional insights into a range of proteins.

Protein Modelling and Structure-Based Function Prediction
ID
784523
Start date
01 Jun 2016
Location
Liverpool, United Kingdom
Abstract
Protein function ultimately depends on protein structure, but experimental methods for characterising protein structure can never keep pace with the genome-driven deluge of sequence data. Plugging the gap are bioinformatics methods which can predict structures either by exploiting known structures as templates (homology modelling) or without that information (fragment-based ab initio methods covariance-based algorithms). An impressive diversity of bioinformatics methods can be used to extract maximum value from structures, both experimental and modelled.

Aimed at participants from graduate level onwards with no prior experience of modelling but a good understanding of protein structure principles and terminology, this event offers training in both modelling and structure-based functional inference.
