The Molecular & Computational Biology Symposium 2018 is jointly organised by PhD students from the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology and Computational Infection Biology programs. The event will showcase the thriving local research and scientific community that is present at UCD and in Dublin to Irish and international academic researchers and industrial companies.
Registration deadline is on 16th November.
The goal of this course is to teach nanopore sequencing using the Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) platform and is directed towards molecular biologists, bioinformaticians, scientists and technicians.
- Introduction to ONT devices and latest technology
- Wet lab training and best practices for sample quality and library preparation for Nanopore sequencing
- Running MinKNOW and real-time sequencing data handling
- Introduction to basecalling and analysis tools (ONT and opens source) for analysis of ONT data
Application Deadline: 22 October 2018
This is an interdisciplinary meeting bringing together epidemiologists, clinical researchers, as well as experts in public health, risk analysis, big data and global health. The focus will be on severe disease presentations with influenza and other respiratory viral infections.
The topics of the plenary sessions are:
- Virus Outbreaks and Prevention
- Immunology of Chronic Viral Infection
- Innate Antiviral Immunity
- Novel Strategies against Persistent Viruses
Abstract submission deadline: 04 January 2019
Early registration deadline: 25 January 2019
The meeting will focus on bioinformatics approaches in virology, and we welcome any contributionswithin this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics include (but are not limited to): virus detection, annotation, and characterisation; study of virus populations, phylogeny, and coevolution; outbreak preparedness and virus eradication; virus-host interactions and replication; as well as drug design and vaccines.
Our aim is to bring together experts in virology and bioinformatics, to encourage and assist scientific exchange in both areas and initiate scientific cooperations. We look forward to welcoming old faces and new colleagues who share our excitement for computational virology!
Registration is free of charge, and works on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The first 120 participants will be admitted, after which registration will be closed.
We welcome contributions as poster presentation, oral presentation and/or journal publication. Find the details here.
EvoStar comprises of four co-located conferences on evolutionary computation: EuroGP (European Conference on Genetic Programming), EvoApplications (European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary and bio-inspired Computation), EvoCOP (European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimisation), and EvoMUSART (International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design).
Submission Deadline: 01 November 2018
We aim to convene scientists from across the Virosphere, ranging from basic to clinical virology, mixing medical, veterinary, wildlife, invertebrate and plant virology. Throughout the program, our ambition is to have tracks in which basic, clinical, and diagnostic virologists feel at home, as these typically have separate conferences whereas we feel strongly that the interaction is crucial to advance knowledge in each field.
Early registration deadline: 24 March 2019
Abstract submission deadline: 1 January 2019
The conference solicits research contributions on theoretical advances in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology and medicine. The origins of the conference came from the mathematical and computational side of the field, and there remains a focus on computational advances. In addition, the effective use of computational techniques in biological discovery is also an important aspect of the conference.
Paper submission deadline: 30 October 2018
Highlights submission deadline: 31 January 2019

This meeting initiates a series of Scandinavian conferences, held every third year in one of the Scandinavian countries. The meeting will bring together Scandinavian and other international virologists, and creates opportunities for fruitful collaboration. The topics include all aspects of virology and viral immunology – basic, applied and clinical virology.
Abstract submission and registration opens on 2nd January, 2019.
This course is aimed at individuals working across biological sciences who have little or no experience in bioinformatics. Applicants are expected to be at an early stage of using bioinformatics in their research with the need to develop their skills and knowledge further. No previous knowledge of programming / coding is required for this course.
Application opens: 04 January 2019
