November 17 – 20, 2020 Virtual WORKSHOP

Reproducible genomics workflows using Nextflow and nf_core

Location: Online; See event web site for details.

Brief info:

This BovReg workshop is organized by the CRG (Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona), will be a great opportunity for the animal genomics community to learn how to implement bioinformatics workflows following best practices in terms of computational reproducibility and interoperability using Nextflow. Nextflow has become one of the more popular bioinformatics workflow managers. Its large set of features provide the toolkit to implement fully portable, replicable, scalable workflows in a seamless manner. The workshop will include a Nextflow tutorial and hackathon, Keynote speakers, and contributed talks selected from participants abstracts.

December 1 – 4, 2020 Virtual MEETING

The European Federation of Animal Science Annual Meeting

Location: Online; See event web site for details.

Brief info:

Plenary session: “Responsibility of animal production on climate change”, covering genetics, health and welfare, nutrition, physiology, livestock farming systems, and precision livestock farming in cattle, horse, pig, sheep and goats.

If you are a member of EAAP (which you can become for free if you come from a EAAP member country, otherwise I think it costs an extra 50€ to become a member) registration costs 180€ (or 350 for 3 persons of the same institution).

The conference will be based on prerecorded presentations but also some live sessions, e.g. the Plenary session. The prerecorded presentations will be available both before and after the conference for some time.

Swine in Biomedical Research

Location: University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI

Brief info:

The Swine in Biomedical Research Conference 2020 is the seventh in the quintessential conference series. Since its inception in 1995, advances from the sequencing of the pig genome to the recent evolution of gene editing technologies have dramatically changed the landscape of porcine models. SBR 2020 marks the coming era of translational research in pigs, that promises to accelerate the discovery and development of clinically relevant therapies and technologies. It aims to foster collaborations between clinicians, biomedical researchers and animal scientists, and spark partnerships with the biomedical industry.
