Online: BioModels ML Hackathon

This remote event focuses on applying FAIR principles to machine_learning models in the life sciences, enhancing their reproducibility and utility.

Why Participate?

  • Engage in hands-on activities to make ML models more Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.
  • Collaborate with experts and peers to boost the impact of your work.
  • Contribute to a leading community resource while gaining recognition for your expertise.

The hackathon is ideal for researchers, data scientists, and developers at the intersection of AI/ML and life sciences.

Date: 20 - 21 June

Webinar: Demystifying ELIXIR: Everything you ever wanted to know and more

This interactive event will help participants understand ELIXIR’s structure and operations. It is particularly suitable for people who have been part of ELIXIR for less than two years, but is open to all. Those involved in onboarding new people to Nodes might also find this webinar useful.

By the end of the session, attendees should have a clearer picture of how they fit into ELIXIR and how best to apply their knowledge and skills to maximise their impact. They should leave with answers to their questions, and understand where to find further information and how to actively engage with ELIXIR.

Webinar: ISMARA and CREMA: automatically inferring gene regulatory networks from gene expression, chromatin accessibility or epigenome data

This course is aimed at PhD students, post-docs and researchers in life sciences wanting to make computational inferences about gene regulation from gene expression data, chromatin accessibility and epigenetic mark data. The course is targeted to a wide audience ranging from computational biologists and bioinformatics researchers who regularly analyse transcriptome and epigenome data, to experimental researchers interested in inferring key regulatory interactions in their own data.

Application deadline: 28 August 2024

Date: 30 August 2024
