ELIXIR-NL Course: Bioinformatics for Translational Medicine using Galaxy
Please circulate this email to those who might be interested.
Date: 17-19 October, 2018
Location: VU Amsterdam (O|2 Lab Building, Gustav Mahlerlaan 665, 1082 MK, 1082 MK Amsterdam)
Organizers: Chao (Cico) Zhang (VU), Sanne Abeln (VU), Anton Feenstra (VU), Saskia Hiltemann (ErasmusMC), Mateusz Kuzak (DTL) and Celia van Gelder (DTL).
This course consists of two parts, each of which you could register separately in the application form.
Part 1 (Day 1 and 2): biomedical & translational medicine researchers/students who are keen on bioinformatics
Part 1 and 2 (Day 1, 2 and 3): educators in the “bio” domain who would like to start using Galaxy in their courses as an introduction to bioinformatics.
Analysing molecular data in translational medicine involves a multitude of computational steps. Here, we introduce the basics of how to design and run these steps within Galaxy, a free and easy-to-use web platform that enables users to connect bioinformatics tools into a workflow without any prior programming expertise.
This course is also interspersed with a few keynotes, from recognized researchers in the fields of biomedicine, bioinformatics education, and Galaxy workflows. The confirmed speakers include Remond Fijneman (Day 1), a scientist in oncology from NKI; Björn Grüning (Day 2), the leader of Galaxy training network, who is also actively involved in Bioconda, and Jaap Heringa (Day 3), the scientific director of the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre.
The attendees of Part I are assumed to have the basic knowledge of biomedicine (molecular biology and genomics) and be interested in analyzing patient-derived sequencing data. The attendees of Part II are assumed to have some teaching experience in the relevant field (e.g., bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology, quantitative biology, etc.)
The course consists of six modules, as the table below shows, covering a list of topics as follows:
About the instructor: Each session is led by one instructor listed in the table above but strongly supported by multiple co-instructors, including, but not limited to, Saskia Hiltemann (ErasmusMC), Björn Grüning, Chao Zhang (VU), Leon Mei (LUMC), Ruben Vorderman (LUMC) and Sanne Abeln (VU).
Correction: An earlier version of this announcement mentioned that you don’t need to bring your own laptop, this is NOT TRUE. We regret the error. You do need to bring your own laptop.
Course participation is free of charge.
A workshop dinner will be organized on Thursday (at participants’ own expenses)
