EMBL Course: Advanced training with Oxford Nanopore Technologies
14 Jan 2019 - 18 Jan 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The goal of this course is to teach nanopore sequencing using the Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) platform. We will start with an introduction into ONT technology and devices, with the goal of covering end to end workflows for the preparation and analysis of human and yeast samples using whole genome and barcoded cDNA sequencing approaches. This course will cover the wet lab preparation of libraries from genomic DNA and total RNA, with a focus on the critical steps and potential pitfalls and understanding what constitutes a ‘good’ sample for purpose of best results using the technology. The training includes an overview of the MinKNOW GUI for GridION and MinION devices. We then cover methods available for basecalling and analysis of samples for structural variants and differential gene expression, using both Oxford Nanopore and open source tools.

EMBL Course: Optogenetics: From Design to Cell Signalling to Tissue Morphogenesis
25 Mar 2019 - 29 Mar 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course will be focused specifically on the new and emerging field of non-neuronal optogenetics. The possibility to modulate signaling pathways and cell behavior with high spatio-temporal precision offers entirely novel approaches to dissect molecular mechanisms governing morphogenesis and homeostasis from the cell to the organismal scale.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Reconstructing the Human Past - Using Ancient and Modern Genomics
31 Mar 2019 - 03 Apr 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The study of population genetic variation and the sequencing of ancient DNA represent promising new avenues for investigating human history and our evolutionary past. Population-scale sequencing projects investigating human diversity have provided us with more than a million genome wide datasets that allowed new insights into patterns of human variation and mobility, while others have obtained genome wide data from thousands of ancient human skeletons, allowing the investigation of human evolution in action and providing direct insights into population genetic dynamics in situ. Large-scale genetic variation data sets can now be integrated with genomics data from ancient remains and history records to provide novel insights into human history, cultural evolution and the genetic history of societies. Ancient DNA was furthermore used to reconstruct genomic variation of historic pathogens as well as oral and gut microbiomes in order to provide molecular fossils to study microbial evolution through time. This meeting will involve scientists from genomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, anthropology, archaeology and historians and may initiate future interactions in this exciting and timely new research area that has the potential to change the way we think about our human past and how we might study genetic variation in the future.

EMBL Course: Statistical Methods in Bioinformatics with R/Bioconductor
01 Apr 2019 - 05 Apr 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This beginner level course provides a basic training in statistical bioinformatics analysis using R and Bioconductor. The course topics include an introduction to R and Bioconductor, exploration of data using appropriate graphics, basics on statistical testing as well as regression and principal component analysis. A particular focus will be on tools to facilitate downstream analysis. As an advanced topic, the analysis of ChIP Seq data will be touched upon on the last day of the course.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Probing Neural Dynamics with Behavioural Genetics
10 Apr 2019 - 13 Apr 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
One of the ultimate challenges in neuroscience is to link the dynamics of brain activity to behaviour. Cutting-edge experimental methodologies such as calcium imaging, multi-electrode recordings and optogenetics in freely-behaving animals of different genetic backgrounds have generated a wealth of rich data sets. In order to gain a better understanding, such studies need to be analysed through bioinformatics, computational analysis and theory. This meeting seeks to bring together experts on how the brain integrates information about sensory inputs and internal state into behavioural responses. This topic will be illustrated by studies in different model organisms and will range from sensory-motor to cognitive behaviour. It will foster interdisciplinary discussions between molecular, physiological, behavioural and computational neuroscientists.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Probing Neural Dynamics with Behavioural Genetics
15 May 2019 - 18 May 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
For the first time, our EMBO | EMBL Symposium will provide a forum for the emerging field of cell type and tissue origination in the single-cell genomics era. We will jointly discuss fundamental questions such as the origins of cell types in the evolution of multicellularity, their diversification in divergent animal lineages, and the molecular evolution of regulatory networks underlying the specification of cell types and tissues. One focus will be on the evolution of neuron type identity, and the cellular origins of the vertebrate cortex. We will also explore new computational approaches to unravel whole-body single-cell gene regulatory networks that underlie cell type diversification.

Abstract:
Course participants will learn all about experimental design, how to prepare metagenomic libraries from soil samples and are invited to bring their own environmental samples from soils or aquatic environments (previously filtered). The bioinformatic analysis is a key part of the course, where students will learn how to process data from raw sequence to the application of algorithms for analysing metagenomic datasets. Trainers will provide short lectures with follow-up hands-on exercises in order to have the participants learning and assessing their knowledge.
