BioSB Course: Matlab

October 20, 2015, Wageningen UR
This is a one-day introduction to the possibilities of Matlab as a programming environment for simulation and analysis of biological models. 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.

BioSB Course: Protein structures: production, prowess, power, promises, and problems

November 9-13, 2015, Raboudumc/CMBI, Nijmegen
In the right hands, protein structures are a ‘power’ful tool to answer bio-molecular questions. Knowledge of the structure is a pre-requisite for rational drug design, for biotechnology, for chemical biology, and for answering a whole series of biomedical questions. In this course we will discuss the ‘production’ of protein structures by NMR, X-ray, and homology modelling. The course is suitable for both PhD students working in structural bioinformatics as well as for PhD students in the life sciences who want to learn more about using structural information in their research. Read more

BioSB/Lorentz Workshop: Life Sciences with Industry 2015

November 16-20, 2015, Lorentz Center, Leiden
We invite PhD students and postdocs from all branches of the life sciences that like to participate in the one-week Life Sciences with Industry 2015 Lorentz workshop in Leiden: November 16 – 20, 2015. During the workshop, the about 40 participants tackle in groups of eight six scientifically challenging and commercially important problems formulated by six companies. Participation is free of charge, including hotel accommodation during the workshop. You can still register via the Lorenz Center website. The workshop is sponsored by Lorentz Center, BioSB, STW and the companies involved. 
Registration deadline: October 18, 2015! Read more

BioSB Course: Discovering Systems Biology Principles

November 23-27, 2015, Amsterdam
This course enables the student to discover biological principles that underlie biological networks. The course will first acquaint the student with the concepts of concentrations, rates, fluxes, steady state, production and transport. Phenomena will be explained based on several biological principles. The course will use existing models of relevant networks which the student will interrogate using the web-based live model repository JWS. Read more

BioSB Course: Managing and Integrating Life Science Information

November 30 - December 4, 2015, Utrecht
This course is aimed at bioinformaticians who would like to learn about leading-edge data and knowledge integration solutions. The course introduces modern techniques for the management of life science data and knowledge for bioinformatics applications. Following the course will show you techniques for working with distributed resources, which includes using the web of Linked data and scientific workflows. It will also focus on methods for using or linking your own data into the large distributed Semantic Web of resources, in order to ensure that your data is FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). Read more

Programming with Python

December 1-4, 2015, Rotterdam
Python is a very popular programming language for a wide variety of applications, in- and outside of research. It offers freedom, since it does not confine the user to one way of programming (e.g. procedural, object oriented, functional) and is user friendly, given its structured nature and the availability of many high quality libraries, such as Numpy/Scipy (fast nd-arrays and mathematics, graph plotting), Pandas (data analysis) and VTK integration (3D graphics, image processing). This is a hands-on course in programming with Python, organised by the MolMed, the Molecular Medicine Postgraduate school. Read more

BioSB 2016 conference - Save the date!

April 19-20, 2016, Lunteren
On April 19-20, 2016 the second BioSB conference will be organised: BioSB 2016. BioSB 2016 discussed the latest developments in bioinformatics, systems and computational biology and interrelated disciplines, and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences & health, agriculture, food & nutrition and industrial biotechnology. More information will follow soon!

ECCB 2016 - the 15th European Conference on Computational Biology

September 3-7, 2016, The Hague
DTL and the BioSB will jointly organise the fifteenth edition of the European Conference on Computational Biology which will take place in the historic city of The Hague in the Netherlands. ECCB 2016 is the main computational event in 2016 and will welcome scientists working in a variety of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. Participating in ECCB 2016 will be the perfect opportunity to keep pace with cutting edge research, and to network with members of ECCB community. Read more
