BioSB Course: Matlab

October 28, 2016, Wageningen
The main goal of this course is to get acquainted with Matlab software for use within Systems Biology. After this introductory course you will have gained the basic knowledge to pursue further use via self-study of Matlab in order to apply more advanced programming techniques within Matlab in your own research. In summary, the sub-goals are: 1) to learn the philosophy behind Matlab and its syntax, 2) to program simple Systems Biology models in Matlab (in ordinary differential equation format) and to solve these differential equations with Matlab.

Python for Life Scientists

November 10-11 2016, Amsterdam
Tailored for life scientists with little or no prior programming experience, this course, organized by ENPICOM, is driven by real-life use cases. Participants will learn by doing, completing snippets of code that they will be able to reuse in their everyday tasks. Extensive use of Python Notebooks will encourage participants to annotate and document the code, building the basis for a sound and reproducible methodology for data analysis.

Comparative Genomics: from evolution to function

November 21-25, 2016, Nijmegen
Comparative genomics between species and between types of data facilitates the understanding of what these data really reflect about the underlying biological processes. Comparative genomics therewith relies on a solid understanding of basic elements of Bioinformatics like homology and orthology. Moreover it is important to know the assumptions and heuristics of bioinformatic methods for comparative genomics and hence we aim to let participants develop an understanding of why these methods sometimes fail (or misdetect) as a consequence of a variety of biological /evolutionary causes, and in which situations which method is most appropriate.
