Course: Single-Cell Omics
12 May 2019 - 18 May 2019 • 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.

Keystone Symposia: Climate Change-Linked Stress Tolerance in Plants
13 May 2019 - 16 May 2019 • Hanover, Germany
Abstract:
Current and anticipated impacts of climate change and atmospheric gases on water availability and weather extremes affect the production of crops that provide food and fiber to meet the growing needs of humanity. Innovative research on crops, related wild species and model plant species is enabling the identification of stress signaling, metabolic and developmental strategies that limit yield loss in zones with increased climate stress and variability. The use of functional genomics to dissect abiotic stress sensing and signaling networks and the downstream adjustments in metabolism and development continue to provide solutions for crop improvement. These advances are accelerated by tools such as genome editing and use of synthetic biology to fine-tune key pathways. Moreover, advances in genomics and GWAS approaches provide powerful platforms towards identifying new genes and mechanisms for increasing plant vigor while limiting yield losses in agriculture. New advances in physiological and molecular phenotyping and recognition of synergistic multigene combinations that provide stress resiliency without limiting productivity promise to enable rapid deployment of advantageous genetic combinations. This conference will bring together experts pursuing advances on the cutting edge of climate change-linked stress tolerance in plants and provide a dynamic interactive setting to map future challenges and solutions.

EMBL Course: Attacking Open Chromatin with ATAC Sequencing
26 Aug 2019 - 30 Aug 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
ATAC-Seq stands for Assay of Transposase Accessible Chromatin and is, despite its recent invention, already a widespread method to profile open chromatin on a genome-scale. The goal of this introductory course is to teach the entire workflow of an ATAC-Seq experiment including library preparation, sequencing, data processing, and downstream analysis by addressing a real biological question that will be answered at the end of the course.

We will start with the experimental ATAC-Seq protocol, highlighting the critical steps, potential pitfalls, and the most up-to-date tweaks to improve the quality of the results. After sequencing the samples we will go through the basic quality control and preprocessing steps using multiple analysis tools for next generation sequencing data. Finally, we will perform different types of analysis on the processed data, including visualisation, differential peak calling, and differential transcription factor activity profiling to come to a biological conclusion. In addition we will discuss recent advancements in technology development and algorithms for analysis and give an outlook on future perspectives and applications.

EMBL Course: Computing Skills For Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry
16 Oct 2019 - 18 Oct 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This workshop provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing.

EMBL Course: Humanized Mice in Biomedicine: Challenges and Innovations
03 Nov 2019 - 08 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
In the last decade, several new genetically modified immune deficient mouse strains have been developed. They allowed high levels of engraftment of the human immune system, tissues and tumours. These models have become highly relevant for basic research to understand the function of the human immune system and the development of human pathologies (infections and cancer) in vivo. They are also being increasingly used as potency and safety models to evaluate new therapies and approaches in regenerative medicine prior to testing in humans. This course will cover all aspects of the topic, including conceptual and technical classes on human stem cell transplantation and immune reconstitution, infections with human-specific pathogens (EBV, HIV, HCV, HBV, Ebola, Adenovirus), in vivo modelling using patient-derived xenografts (PDX) of solid tumours and leukaemia models as well as regenerative approaches for the liver.

EMBL Conference: Cancer Genomics
04 Nov 2019 - 07 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This conference will provide an opportunity to learn about and keep up to date with the rapidly progressing area of cancer genomics. It will cover presentations from cancer genome projects, the areas of cancer functional genomics, systems biology, cancer immunogenomics and epigenomics, cancer mouse models and the translation and clinical impact of scientific results obtained. The meeting will bring together leading scientists from across these areas for a unique opportunity to interact and stimulate further integration of these efforts.

EMBO Practical Course: The Fundamentals of High-End Cell Sorting
11 Nov 2019 - 15 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course on the fundamentals of high-end cell sorting will enable scientists to properly use the global upstream technology of cell sorting with high confidence. Cell sorting is essential to many studies, but researchers outside of core facilities have very limited knowledge how exactly sorting works and unknowingly produce erroneous samples or even scientifically crippling data. The course is intended for PhD students and postdocs who are starting to use, or already using flow cytometry based cell sorting in their research projects. Applicants with some previous active knowledge of basic principles of flow cytometry and a regular use of flow cytometers in daily research will profit most from the content of the course.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Metabolism Meets Epigenetics
20 Nov 2019 - 23 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Metabolism and Epigenetics are intricately linked, playing a key role in development, cancer, immune signaling and aging. This symposium brings together world-leading researchers exploring this nexus. The symposium will focus in particular on how metabolites and metabolic networks impact gene regulation, on recently discovered roles of metabolites in disease and how this open novel therapeutic avenues. We will highlight enabling tools linking metabolites, their localisation within tissues and cells with the regulation of chromatin structure, gene activity and epigenetic inheritance.
