ELB17S - Entry Level Bioinformatics

This is an entry level course aimed that those with a reasonable biological background but no significant experience with bioinformatics. The course is broadly based around a series of exercises in which a combination of simple analytical tools and reference to publicly available databases is applied to the investigation of a single human gene. The training manual for the course is comprised of detailed instructions for the tasks undertaken. Included are, questions (with answers) and discussion of and the interpretation of the results achieved.

BioData @ IST Bioengineering Week

A BioData.pt member from IBB (Institute of Bioengineering and Biosciences), Miguel Teixeira will join the AbracaDATA panel at ISTécnico's Bioengineering Week next 18th March. A BioData service example - Yeastract - an e-infrastructure for research on gene and genomic regulation in yeasts - will be presented. Together with Pedro Fernandes (GTPB/IGC), Isabel Vaz (H da Luz) and Nuno Morais (IMM) will be discussed the fusion of modern Biology and Computacional Sciences.

PDA19 - Proteomics Data Analysis

Mass spectrometry based proteomic experiments generate ever larger datasets and, as a consequence, complex data interpretation challenges. In this course, the concepts and methods required to tackle these challenges will be introduced, covering peptide and protein identification, quantification, and differential analysis. Moreover, more advanced experimental designs and blocking will also be introduced. The core focus will be on shotgun proteomics data, and quantification using label-free precursor peptide (MS1) ion intensities. The course will rely exclusively on free and user-friendly software, all of which can be directly applied in your lab upon returning from the course. You will also learn how to submit data to PRIDE/ProteomeXchange, which is a common requirement for publication in the field, and how to browse and reprocess publicly available data from online repositories. The course will thus provide a solid basis for beginners, but will also bring new perspectives to those already familiar with standard data interpretation procedures in proteomics.

Fórum BioData.pt Empresas: gestão avançada de dados para a criação de valor

O Fórum BioData.pt Empresas: gestão avançada de dados para a criação de valor, organizado pela BioData e PBio, vai juntar quatro empresas nacionais com atividade ligada ao sector da saúde, do mar, da agricultura e da bioindústria, para contarem as suas histórias e inspirarem novas ideias e novas empresas. Haverá ainda oportunidade para discutir as melhores práticas em curadoria, gestão e utilização de biodados, bem como utilização de ferramentas de bioinformática, essenciais para o seu sucesso. 

[ELIXIR TeC] ELIXIR Bioinformatics Suppliers Forum (EBSF)

The ELIXIR Bioinformatics Suppliers Forum (EBSF) is a one day event for suppliers of bioinformatics services, solutions and resources. Suppliers can learn about ELIXIR services with a focus on compute, bioinformatics tools, and AI, and exchange technical information relating to their products through scientific presentations or demonstrations. The Forum will be highly interactive with opportunities for informal networking as well as structured discussions and presentations.
