EMBL Course: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing
02 Sep 2018 - 10 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Solving structures of large macromolecular assemblies to gain fundamental insights into biological mechanisms remains a major challenge in structural biology. Cryo-EM combined with image processing is currently undergoing what has been referred to as a “resolution revolution”, making it one of the most powerful techniques to address this challenge. It also has unique capabilities to obtain structural information in situ within complex environments, and to deal with heterogeneous samples. The methods are complex and under constant development, so in depth, advanced training of new users is essential to ensure future users can adapt new technologies to expand into new areas and solve new biological problems. This course provides the theoretical and practical training covering the full breadth of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques from sample preparation to data collection to image processing.
FoodMicro Conference 2018
03 Sep 2018 - 06 Sep 2018 • Berlin, Germany
The FoodMicro 2018 Conference will take place in the Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, from 3rd to 6th September 2018. The field of food microbiology has changed rapidly in the last decades and new methods help scientists all over the world to master the challenges of the 21st century. Socioeconomic changes necessitate changes in food production, supply, and handling. Previously unknown problems concerning spoilage and transmission of pathogens occur worldwide. Moreover, functional and novel foods gain importance and probiotic bacteria are in the focus of international research.
To merge these different research areas “Biodiversity of Foodborne Microbes” has been chosen as the common theme of the conference. Participants will be offered an excellent programme, demonstrating scientific diversity and subject depth. This will be achieved by utilizing the scientific expertise of the selected national and international committees, including the members of the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene (ICFMH).

EMBL Course: Attacking Open Chromatin with ATAC Sequencing
10 Sep 2018 - 14 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
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 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: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis
08 Oct 2018 - 11 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
The course participants will learn how to use R/BioConductor software and Illumina BaseSpace Cloud apps. The course covers various topics using graphical interfaces. Furthermore everyday there will be, in morning and afternoon, a brief session on R scripting to provide the basics knowledge to move from the use of the graphical environment to command line. During the last day of the course some of the workflows used in the first three days will be dissected and executed using command line approach. All computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets.
EMBL Course: Software Carpentry
15 Oct 2018 - 18 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
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 is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will know a little bit of command line/programmatic computer usage, but not consider themselves an expert. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable with advanced git usage).
EMBL Course: Liquid Biopsies
15 Oct 2018 - 20 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Liquid biopsies have the advantage of being largely non-invasive and providing a vast amount of information for the detection and monitoring of diseases such as cancer. This course will provide hands-on experience in the most common techniques to detect and analyse circulating tumor cells (CTCs), cell free tumor DNA (ctDNA) and/or extracellular vesicles (exosomes) while also bringing in clinical aspects. Participants will have the opportunity to learn all aspects ranging from proper sampling through error free sequencing to data analysis.
EMBO Workshop: Experimental Approaches to Evolution and Ecology Using Yeast
17 Oct 2018 - 20 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Systems Genetics: From Genotypes to Molecular Phenotypes to Complex Traits
24 Oct 2018 - 27 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Systems genetics is the extension of genetics to the system-level. It aims at understanding the relationship between genotypes and molecular phenotpes at the genome-scale, thus integrating genomics with large-scale molecular and phenotypic profiling. This opens the door to the investigating of the genetic basis of complex traits in a variety of model systems, from yeast growth phenotype to human disease. Taking advantage of natural genetic variation allows to investigate the effect of many mild genetic perturbations, an approach which contrasts with the all-or-none targeted genetic perturbations.
EMBL Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
10 Nov 2018 - 13 Nov 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
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 EMBO 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.
