Machine Learning for bioinformatics and systems biology

From October 5-9, 2020 the next BioSB course on Machine Learning for bioinformatics and systems biology will be organised as an online course. Course overview Modern biology is a data-rich science, driven by our ability to measure the detailed molecular…

FAIR Data Stewardship (basis)

Bij onderzoek – in de brede zin van het woord – wordt steeds meer data geproduceerd. Daarbij is de wens dat deze onderzoeksdata bruikbaar blijft voor vervolgonderzoek. In de praktijk gaat dat lastig. Om deze problematiek te adresseren zijn de…

Singel Cell Analysis course

This week-long course organised by the MGC will cover the practicalities of single-cell sample prep and analysis with a particular focus on single-cell RNA-seq libraries. The course features a mix of lectures and practicals, and you will have the opportunity…

Algorithms for biological networks

Molecular biology is concerned with the study of the presence of and interactions between molecules, at the cellular and sub-cellular level. In bioinformatics and systems biology, algorithms and tools are developed to model these interactions, with various goals: predicting yet…

Metagenomics

In this workshop, a general background to metagenomics is provided. The workflow of sample preparation, DNA isolation, platform selection, read mapping, annotation and metagenome assembly is covered. Attention is paid to taxonomic classification, quantification of microbial communities and species richness.…
