Webinar by EMBL-EBI: Bioinformatic approaches to understand the role of the human microbiome in health and disease

This webinar will provide an overview of current metagenomic approaches to study the human microbiome and introduce several statistical methods that can be used to link its composition and function to different human phenotypes and populations. This webinar is suitable for those interested in studying the microbiomes of any environment or host. Although the presentation will be focused on the human microbiome, the methods and techniques discussed will also be applicable to other microbial ecosystems. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be useful.

Bring your own DMP workshop - 1.03.2024, Tartu

According to the Estonian Research Council funding agreement, all the projects that have started in 2022 have to submit a data management plan (DMP) within the first six months. Since this will be new for many researchers, ELIXIR Estonia will do a data management writing course. During the workshop, we will discuss the different aspects of the DMP and give more practical advice. There will be 3-4 30-minute writing sessions where you can write your DMP. Also, if you have any questions, the organiser will help you as best as they can.
