Zebrafish are widely used to study development, toxicity and disease, and functional genomics is used throughout the field to identify new pathways and mechanisms, and for comparison to other model systems and humans. In this hands-on course, participants will learn how to design functional genomics experiments, manage and analyse RNA-seq datasets from zebrafish, and compare results to other species. The aim of the course is to equip researchers with tools to carry out functional analysis and data visualisation of RNA-seq data that has already been mapped to the genome and been analysed for differential gene expression. The course will be relevant to researchers working on a wide range of topics and will use real datasets from our lab for hands-on analysis. Please note that this course will not teach the initial steps of RNA-seq analysis but instead start at the point that you have a...

Pfam is a large collection of multiple sequence alignments and hidden Markov models covering many common protein domains. Together with twelve other resources, it is part of the InterPro">https://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/about/consortium/"> member database consortium. After 20 years of good and faithful service, we have decided to retire the Pfam website. We are still planning to do Pfam releases and the data will still be available through the InterPro">https://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/"> website.This webinar aims to ease the transition from Pfam to InterPro by showing different ways to search and access the Pfam annotations in the InterPro website.

While their fundamental role in our health and environment is undeniable, there is an urgent need for unravelling molecular mechanisms underlying the dynamics of these communities. This requires a combined experimental and computational approach. Recent studies (including those from the organisers’ and speakers’ labs) have underlined the success of such integrative approaches. For example, emergence of cell subpopulations (Varahan et al. eLife 2019, 2020), and long-term stability (Blasche, Kim et al. Nat Microbiol. 2021) through metabolic cross-feeding. As researchers world-wide map species dynamics in the ecosystems of their interest, this...

For example, mass spectrometry-based proteomics is now able to quantitatively assess close to 80% of the proteome which can nowadays be obtained from very low cell numbers. An even greater jump in sensitivity has recently revolutionized genomics with the rapid spread of measurements at the resolution of single molecule and...

<p><span><span><span><span><span><span>The orchestration of complex application workflows executed in the context of High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructures requires the joint collaboration of application designers/developers, HPC engineers and application consumers (i.e. end-users). In the context of HPC, complex workflows can be executed with either HPC schedulers (e.g. Slurm), workflow managers (e.g. PyCOMPSs, NextFlow), with meta-orchestrators (e.g. Croupier) or with a combination of them.

This knowledge exchange workshop is an opportunity for managers of bioinformatics core facilities to learn from EMBL-EBI’s service teams, and from each other. These facilities play an essential role in enabling research in the molecular life sciences. The landscape is constantly evolving as new research tools emerge, as experiments become increasingly data intensive, and as their clients – experimental researchers – become more exposed to the power of data-driven biology. This course will allow participants to share experiences, discuss challenges and solutions that they face, and plan ways to cope with the ever changing demands raised by the molecular life science field. It will include sessions to learn from data providers at EMBL-EBI, hear how others have tackled common problems, and work together to design core services.

For example, in structural biology insights into the functional mechanisms can be obtained by elucidating the 3D molecular structure of proteins and protein complexes using technologies such as X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and NMR. In biochemistry and biophysics, interactions with other proteins, nucleic acids and small molecules can be studied by determining affinities and specificities. Proteins can function as antigens to generate specific antibodies or as reagents in cell biology...

Symposium overview “Time stands still for no one” or for no molecule, for that matter. Of the molecules that undergo changes over time, it is chromosomal alterations that may have some of the most profound and long-lasting cellular and organismal effects. In contrast to any other macromolecule, the genome is irreplaceable and requires constant repair. Despite sophisticated genome maintenance mechanisms, DNA damage accumulates over time and hence with age. The ensuing chromosomal alterations may lead to genome instability,...

Due to the complexity of the data, without such expert guidance, it is very likely that image analysis algorithms may be applied incorrectly, possibly even producing erroneous results.

<p>This course covers the use of computational tools to extract biological insight from omics datasets. The content will explore a range of approaches - ranging from network inference and data integration to machine learning and logic modelling - that can be used to extract biological insights from varied data types. Together these techniques will provide participants with a useful toolkit for designing new strategies to extract relevant information and understanding from large-scale biological data.</p> This course covers the use of computational tools to extract biological insight from omics datasets.

Together these techniques will provide participants with a useful toolkit for designing new strategies to extract relevant information and understanding from large-scale biological data. The motivation for running this course is a result of advances in computer science and high-performance computing that have led to groundbreaking developments in systems biology model inference. With the comparable increase of publicly-available, large-scale biological data, the challenge now lies in interpreting them in a biologically valuable manner. Likewise, machine learning approaches are...
