Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis: A Practical Introduction
14 Oct 2020 - 15 Oct 2020 • Munich, Germany
Organizer:
ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH
Abstract:
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina. All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast evolving research topic.

DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop
02 Nov 2020 - 05 Nov 2020 • Berlin, Germany
Organizer:
ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH
Abstract:
The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics. By the end of this workshop the participants will 1) be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina, 2) understand how bisulfite sequencing works, 3) be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data, 4) understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome, 5) be familiar with common data formats and standards, 6) know relevant tools for data processing, 7) automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines, 8) perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses), 9) plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish) and 10) be able to reuse all analyses.

EMBL Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
15 Nov 2020 - 18 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The main objective of this conference is to bring people together from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and to form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. Over the past decade, this EMBL conference has therefore served as an important venue in helping to shape the field, or to be more precise to help generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.

EMBL Course: Single-Cell Omics
15 Nov 2020 - 21 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The analysis of single cells advances research in many fields. To properly deal with such minute amounts of sample, each step of the workflow is critical, from sampling to data analysis. Additionally, the integration of data from different approaches is becoming increasingly important to capture the whole picture. This course will cover established techniques from sampling through sequencing, protein analysis and data analysis. Samples will be collected via flow cytometry, gene expression will be analysed by qRTPCR and next generation sequencing, and protein analysis will be performed by proximity extension assays. In addition, alternative methods for the whole workflow will be covered in interactive sessions of lectures and Q&A with key experts in the field. Data collected by the different methods will be analysed during in-depth sessions, which are a strong component of the course.

7. MLK — 7. Mitteldeutsche Laborkonferenz
15 Apr 2021 - 16 Apr 2021 • Radebeul, Germany
Organizer:
event lab. GmbH
Abstract:
7 Jahre Mitteldeutsche Laborkonferenz bedeutet Abwechlungsreichtum aber auch Kontinuität und der Tradition der Veranstaltung, folgend dürfen wir Ihnen für 2021 erneut ein thematisch breit gefächertes Programm ankündigen. Das inhaltliche Spektrum spannt den Bogen von Themen der täglichen Routine über aktuelle analytisch-methodische Entwicklungen bis hin zu wegweisenden Technologien. Wichtig bleibt – und das kennzeichnet die Veranstaltung seit ihrer Geburt – der Bezug zur Klinik. Insofern sind wir sehr froh, eine Reihe von Referenten aus klinischen Fächern gewonnen zu haben, die die Bedeutung der engen Zusammenarbeit zwischen Klinik und Labordiagnostik in verschiedenen Bereichen illustrieren und Akzente setzen werden.
