The idea of a circular economy has been embraced by the European Commission. What does it mean and is it feasible? We are happy to have Zora Kovacic, post doctor at the Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities, to present and discuss the theme in a biophysical context.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Adam Novak will be the guest speaker of our upcoming Sven Furberg Seminar in Bioinformatics and Statistical Genomics on the coming Friday, Sep 27, at 14:30 in Lille auditorium, Kristen Nygaards hus.
Dr. Adam Novak, senior software engineer in the UCSC Genomics Institute, will present his lecture "Graph-based genome representations".
Graph-based approaches to genomics problems can beat out traditional linear-reference-based tools, reducing reference allele bias and improving structural variant calling. For these reasons and others, graph genomics techniques are becoming more popular, and more graph-based tools are being developed. Here I present lessons on genome graph API design learned during the development of the vg variation graph toolkit. I show how techniques and libraries extracted from vg can be used to help developers quickly bootstrap new graph-based projects, forming an ecosystem of interoperable graph genomics tools.
Centre for Digital Life Norway and Ard Innovation invite you to a breakfast meeting.
The goals of this symposium is to connect people and groups working within different areas of relevance to systems medicine to share information, find new partners, solve problems and to be inspired to apply for funding from future calls. We also want to get input from Norwegian research environments with regards to what needs to be in place to advance this field further.
Perspectives in Translational Medicine: EMBL Partnership Conference 2019
Communication is key - and science is no exception.
Are you interested in innovative solutions for patient centric healthcare and remote care delivery? Are you delivering solutions for this sector? Then join Norway Health Tech's demo day.
The aim of Digital Life Norway is to "create economic, societal, and environmental value". What is of value? How do we value it? How may value be created and sustained by the biotechnology of the future?
The Centre for Digital Life Norway hosts its third annual conference September 5-6 2019. This edition of DigitalLife will take place in Tromsø, at the Hotel Clarion Hotel the Edge.
Professor Stefano Stella, Associate Professor at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR), University of Copenhagen, will present his research.
Digital Life Norway and the Res Publica Project to host a workshop on the present and future of bioprospecting in Norway
The RESET-affiliated project Crossover Research 2: Well-constructed Knowledge Commons is arranging a workshop on life science knowledge management on June 25-26 at Hotel Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim. Participation is completely free and the registration deadline is June 17.
This research school and workshop is intended for stimulating transdisciplinary thinking in students across disciplines from biology to computational sciences.
Would you like to expand your experimental vocabulary, cross borders into neighboring disciplines, or gain some experimental experience to compliment your computational skills?
Computational medicine aims to apply methods from engineering, mathematics, and computational sciences to improve our understanding of disease mechanisms, and diagnosis, follow-up, and treatment of human disease in the clinic. In this seminar Prof. Arvid Lundervold will talk about training of a new generation life scientists and medical students in this interdisciplinary field.
Dr. Mark Robinson, Associate Professor of Statistical Genomics, Institute of Molecular Life Sciences, University of Zurich, Switzerland, will present his lecture "Statistical methods for flexible differential analysis of multi-sample multi-condition single-cell RNA-seq datasets."
Join the annual conference made for and by the research school members!
The Hybrid Technology Hub - Centre for Organ on a chip technology presents a mini symposium on Organ on a chip Friday May 24.
Control theory has been successfully applied in engineering to build stable and reliably behaving devices. How can concepts developed in control engineering help us understand regulation in biological systems and how to develop reliable, integrated medical devices? In this workshop we will present and discuss some of the existing and novel concepts of control theory and how they can be applied in biotechnology and medical engineering.
Dr. Günter Klambauer, Institute for Bioinformatics, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria, will present the lecture "Deep Learning methods in early-stage drug discovery."
Computational approaches that can aid our understanding of cancer development are improving. Are we approaching the time when computer simulations could become a clinical tool in cancer treatment?
