European School in Bioinformatics, May 2008

The BioSapiens ESB is an intensive five-day course that combines lectures and hands-on tutorials to help the participants actively learn and resolve biologically relevant problems. The 8th ESB is to be held 12th-16th May at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, UK and focuses on using Europe’s core biological data resources and associated tools to analyse biological data. The first day of the course focuses on DAS.

See http://www.ebi.ac.uk/training/handson/course_080512_biosapiens.html for more details.

BioSapiens DAS workshop, Feb 2008

The BioSapiens Network of Excellence are organising a 2-day workshop on DAS, held 25th-26th February 2008 at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, UK. For more information see http://www.dasregistry.org/course.jsp.

Day 1

Similar to the DAS client developers workshop from last year, this is the day where developers present their DAS related applications, websites and discuss new ideas.

  • present the progress over the last year
  • find synergies
  • see if/how interoperability can be improved
  • discuss possible future extensions to DAS

See http://www.dasregistry.org/course.jsp for slides.

Day 2

This is the practical day where you can learn how to work with DAS.

  • learn what you can do with DAS
  • how to talk to a DAS server
  • how to set up your own servers

See DASworkshop200802 for slides.

BioSapiens DAS workshop, Feb 2007

The Biosapiens Network ( http://www.biosapiens.info/ ) is a project that has a strong commitment to DAS and has been very pro-active in setting up DAS/1 servers (lots of protein data) and developing DAS clients.

Around this EU-wide collaboration they are organizing two DAS-related workshops. They will both be held in the last week of February, location is the Genome Campus in Hinxton / Cambridge, U.K.

workshop 1

DAS client developers workshop Monday 26/2/2007 main organizer: Andreas Prlic for more info please see: http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Users/ap3/dasworkshop.html

workshop 2

BioSapiens Feature Classification (Ontology) Workshop Tuesday, 27/2/2007, Wednesday, 28/2/2007 main organizer: Henning Hermjakob Summary:

We propose to develop a hierarchical classification of DAS feature types based on the OBO format and existing feature ontologies like the Sequence Ontology (SO). This will then be the standard BioSapiens feature classification. This will allow clients to easily implement a meaningful default view for features as well as a user-friendly browser configuration by e.g. only showing feature groups of interest. We also propose to annotate features with default servers, so that e.g. structural features for a protein are only shown from one server in default views.
