Introduction to Galaxy analyses & Reference-based RNA-Seq data analysis

Galaxy is a worldwide open source project with the European Galaxy Server being the biggest instance in Europe with more than 85,000 users. The Freiburg Galaxy Team is hosting this server in Freiburg. Through Galaxy as a gateway, we are offering free access to a huge computational cloud infrastructure, databases and 3,200 bioinformatics tools which can be used by a graphical user interface instead of command-line. There is no need for programming or informatics skills - you just need a web browser (e.g. chrome or firefox). We will have demonstrations and work together on detailed E-learning step-by-step-instructions of the Galaxy Training Material.

Location: Computer room I 024a

Heinrich-Buff-Ring 58, JLU

Trainers: Dr. Anika Erxleben, Universität Freiburg, European Galaxy Team; Jochen Blom, Sven Griep & Oliver Rupp, Justus Liebig University Giessen, de.NBI BIGI; Fabienne Thelen & Patrick Barth, Justus Liebig University Giessen, RTG 2355

Dynamics in chromatin organization and RNA regulation: adaptation, infection - and beyond

The symposium is a joint venture with the EU-funded Marie Curie Innovative Training Network "Cell2Cell - role of cellular heterogeneity in chromatin structures in pathogen infections" and brings together international speakers and local experts in chromatin organization, RNA regulation, and pathogen biology. Keynote speakers are former FMI Basel Director Susan Gasser (Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research, Lausanne), Schraga Schwartz (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot), and Bas van Steensel (Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam). A welcome reception will take place on day 1, followed by a poster session on day 2, offering ample opportunity for scientific interactions. For a detailed programme and to register, please check the symposium website. Registration will be open till Friday, 15 March.
