EMBO course on Integrative Structural Biology at Institut Pasteur

Monday, July 8, 2019 - 10:14 to Friday, July 12, 2019 - 10:14

The fourth Course on Integrative Structural Biology, which will take place at the Institut Pasteur from july 8 to july 13, 2019

This course is supported by EMBO (European Molecular Biology Organization). For more information see here
Problems in structural biology today can very often not be solved by one technique alone, but need to be solved by a combination of methods, including NMR, X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, structural mass spectrometry, and SAXS. The heterogeneous data coming from these methods need to be combined with advanced molecular modeling techniques. The goal of the course is to provide young scientists that have more specialized knowledge in one of the techniques an overview over the broad range of modern structural methods available. Special emphasis will be given to computational approaches to integrate data (such as IMP, ARIA).

EOSC DIH Webinar - Business Internationalisation

Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - 11:14

EOSC-hub DIH delivered a webinar on business internationalisation by Tim Brown of F6S

BioExcel Summer School on Biomolecular Simulations 2019

Monday, July 1, 2019 - 09:30 to Friday, July 5, 2019 - 14:30

The summer school is intended for researchers (primarily PhD and post-docs) using or planning to use biomolecular modeling and simulation in their everyday research. Familiarity with Linux and some basic knowledge of molecular modelling software is a requirement.

Synergy of experiment and computation in quantitative systems biology

Sunday, June 23, 2019 - 18:00 to Friday, June 28, 2019 - 09:00

Computational methods and biophysical experiments have advanced rapidly in parallel over recent decades, and are now applied widely to gain molecular-level insights on biological systems. The vast majority of biophysical methods report on the behavior of populations of molecules or on the properties of states of a system. Yet a quantitative understanding of biological systems requires a molecular-level description of phenomena that is generally unobtainable from measurements carried out in bulk. Computations carried out on single macromolecules do not necessarily reflect the statistical nature of molecular behaviors or systems that is captured by experiment. Yet computational approaches can be highly valuable for predicting and interpreting experimental results, and for designing critical experiments to test hypotheses. 

CompBioMed Webinar #9: EUDAT services for FAIR Data Management

Thursday, June 27, 2019 - 12:00 to 13:00

In this webinar, we will give a brief overview of the EUDAT Services and the data life cycle. We further demonstrate how these services operate and integrate with each other to meet the data management requirements of research communities and comply with the FAIR principles - which require the data to be properly documented, annotated, archived, published and accessible to the wider community. Target audience: community researchers, data managers and the IT support people.

FitSM Advanced SOC - Service Operation and Control

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 14:00 to Friday, June 21, 2019 - 14:00

IT Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is a lightweight approach to professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provides crucial help in providing services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

This two-day Advanced level course aims to provide individuals with deeper knowledge of the ITSM processes focusing on service operation and control.

ELIXIR - EXCELERATE All Hands meeting 2019

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 13:00

The meeting brings together members of the ELIXIR community from across the ELIXIR Nodes, and collaborators from partner organisations, in order to review ELIXIR’s achievements and activities so far and discuss plans for the future.

The All Hands meeting is also the venue for the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Annual General Assembly Meeting.

The EOSC-hub Digital Innovation Hub: open data services for biomedicine and business

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - 11:11

An increasingly important part of computational biomedicine workflows is the sharing, processing and publishing of datasets. The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aims to provide a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data. This webinar will introduce the EOSC Digital Innovation Hub (DIH), which provides the primary mechanism for private organisations (start-ups, SMEs, large industry) to engage with the EOSC. Industrial participation is a key part of the remit of Centres of Excellence, such as CompBioMed, therefore we will describe how the DIH can provide them with advanced compute, storage, and data management services alongside expertise and dedicated support. Concrete examples of what can be achieved will be presented from six business pilots running within the EOSC DIH. The webinar will conclude with a call for participation to extend engagement with other research communities with ties to industry, SMEs and other DIHs (regional, European).
