Open Science with Jupyter, Zenodo and Binder

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 13:30 to 17:00

In recent years, the vision of Open Science has emerged as a new paradigm for transparent, data-driven science capable of accelerating competitiveness and innovation.  EGI Notebooks is a services of the EGI e-infrastructure, providing a user-friendly and highly flexible Jupyter-based web environment for the development and execution of data analysis and visualisation ‘notebooks’. Notebooks can contain programming codes in various languages, HTML scripts, dynamic visualization, equations as well as images and explanatory text to provide guidance and context for the analysis. Through notebooks users can easily share concepts, ideas and working applications, capturing the full analytical methodology, connections to data and descriptive text to interpret those data. Binder can turn Jupyter notebooks reproducible and reusable by anyone, anywhere. Zenodo is an open access repository for research publications, scientific data and other 'research objects'. Jupyter, Binder and Zenodo are pillars of Open Science.

Open Science and Research Results Exploitation: friends or foes?

Istanziazione e utilizzo di batch system on demand su infrastrutture cloud.

Monday, November 25, 2019 - 14:00 to Thursday, November 28, 2019 - 12:30

Il corso avrà l'obiettivo di fornire dettagli su come istanziare in maniera automatizzata clusters per l'orchestrazione di container che implementano a loro volta un batch system a servizio. Verrà illustrato principalmente il caso di un sistema di batch basato su HTCondor, dando pero' esempi anche di piattaforme Spark per il training di Machine Learning.

Il corso fornirà gli strumenti di alto livello per l'utilizzo di infastrutture cloud finalizzato al processamento di dataset. In tal senso verranno mostrati strumenti per la gestione delle applicazioni (container), per la gestione del software (cvmfs) e dei dati (e.g. xrootd). Sarà inoltre mostrato concretamente l'esempio del workflow di data anlaisi dell’esperimento AMS, come pilota nell'utilizzo dei batch system a servizio.

Il corso si terrà presso la  Sezione INFN di Perugia, con inizio alle ore 14.00 del 25 Novembre e termine alle ore 13.00 circa del 28 Novembre 2019.

FitSM Advanced Training in Service Operation and Control (SOC) - Amsterdam, 20-22 Nov. 2019

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 13:45 to Friday, November 22, 2019 - 14:00

T Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is a lightweight approach to professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provides crucial help in providing services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

This two-day Advanced level course aims to provide individuals with deeper knowledge of the ITSM processes focusing on service operation and control.

PID NL - A Workshop On The Use Of Persistent Identifiers In The Netherlands.

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 10:00 to 17:30

Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) are an important component of Open Science and FAIR data practices. PIDs ensure that entities within the research workflow are discoverable, citable, comprehensible, and connected.

FitSM Advanced Training in Service Planning and Delivery (SPD) - Amsterdam, 18-20 November 2019

EMBO practical course on Practical Integrative Structural Biology

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 17:00 to Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 22:00

Characterizing the structure of macromolecular complexes is crucial for understanding their function. For many complexes, however, solving their structure using a single structural biology technique is very challenging. Integrative structural biology combines different experimental techniques with computational modeling to build structural models of such challenging complexes.

Application of integrative structural biology requires an in-depth understanding of both different experimental approaches and computational modeling. To provide advanced training in such a highly interdisciplinary skill set, this EMBO Practical Course will teach how to interpret data from major structural biology techniques and how to integrate this data using computational methods. The course location at the Hamburg Unit of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and the Center for Structural Systems Biology on the DESY campus will provide on-site synchrotron SAXS and MX beamlines for training. Hands-on practicals will use a well-studied model system, for which data from all main structural biology techniques are available.

NGSchool2019: Machine Learning for Biomedicine

Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, October 31, 2019 - 18:00

Advances in biological and medical technologies drive continuous generation of large amounts of biomedical Big Data. European Nucleotide Archive stores 260 million sequences comprising 339 trillion nucleotidesThis will double in less than 3 years if the current rate of growth is sustained! Given the exponential progress in sequencing technology the increase will only get steeper, entailing an intensified demand for experts in NGS data analysis. Big Data requires applying new solution to leverage its potential. Machine Learning (ML) is the answer to the increased complexity of research problems in science, industry and in everyday life. It is our conviction that knowledge of the ML techniques is a crucial skill every data scientist should acquire throughout their training.

For above reasons, #NGSchool2019: Machine Learning for Biomedicine will be focused on Machine Learning (ML) and its application in Bioinformatics & NGS Data Analysis as well as personalised medicine. We will cover the following subjects:

  • Introduction to Linux, programming (R and Python) and statistics

  • Tools for efficient and reproducible research

  • Modern  and  libraries/packages for biomedical data science

  • Deep learning in long read sequencing data analysis

  • Statistical and probabilistic analysis of biomedical data

  • Integration of genomics data using ML for understanding gene regulation in its three dimensional context

  • Quality control and typical mistakes of a beginner ML user
