Bioinformatics Resources for Immunologists 2018
Bioinformatics Resources for Immunologists is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL - EBI) and will be held during Jun 04 - 08, 2018 at European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Cambridge, England, United Kingdom.
The target audience for this medical event is aimed at individuals working in immunology research who have minimal experience in bioinformatics. Applicants are expected to be at an early stage of using bioinformatics in their research with the need to develop their skills and knowledge further. Participants will require a basic knowledge of the Unix command line, and the R statistical package. We recommend these free tutorials: introduction to the Unix environment and basic R concepts.
This course aims to provide an introduction to immunology bioinformatics, offer opportunities to explore key methods, tools and resources that can be applied to research. The course will provide participants with an overview of best-practice methods in applying bioinformatics approaches and enable them to become confident users of their own and public domain data. The resources introduced during the course will cover a variety of data types, from genomic and proteomic data; to computational models, biological pathways and reaction information. Participants will gain experience of the analysis pipelines for NGS experiments relevant to immunology, and will be led through an exploration of this data to identify information of interest. Additionally participants will be introduced to how data from a number of sources can be integrated to provide a wider view of their research.
Conference Objectives are :
After this course participants should be able to:
• Locate and search publically available bioinformatics data of interest
• Utilise software and tools to manipulate and analyse immunological data
• Apply appropriate bioinformatics methodologies to their own research
• To combine different types of data (eg genomic and structural) to gain further immunological insights
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
