The BioS project offers three online seminars on the topics:

  • INTRODUCTION TO BIOINFORMATICS
  • COMMERCIAL PERSONALIZED GENOMICS SERVICES IN PATIENT CARE
  • COMPUTATIONAL STATISTICS FOR CLINICAL DOCTORS

The online seminars give you the opportunity to acquire valuable knowledge for your professional career, to discuss live with experts highly topical issues and to connect with peer learners all around Europe.

Online Seminar 1:
Systemic interpretation of data from different –omic layers and derivation of diagnostic, personalized signatures of molecular biomarkers, assisting medical decision.

e-nios, module 1, Thursday 15th of October, 13.00 – 15.00 CEST

In this online seminar the audience is introduced to the secrets of multi-omic analysis and robust systemic interpretation. This process manages to reveal those active, functional, molecular modules, providing consistent, mechanistic understanding of the myriad of interactions occurring, and enables in-silico extraction of signatures of molecular biomarkers, for a more accurate and robust clinical diagnosis/prognosis. The interpretation of the various types of omics data streams is effected through the web platform BioInfoMiner of e-NIOS, integrating the results of diverse analytic workflows showcasing how to extract predictive signatures for several diseases, without requiring advanced programming skills. Two examples of the data-driven interpretation and extraction of diagnostic signatures both at the gene and variant level will be performed on case studies including data from patients suffering from different cancer types.

Online Seminar 2:
BIOS PROJECT- COMPUTATIONAL STATISTICS FOR CLINICAL DOCTORS – HOW TO EVALUATE DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION?

BGU, module 2, Friday, 16th of October,
10.00 – 12.00 CEST

In this online seminar, the theoretical material taught during the BioS course is transformed into practical and applicable skills by working with contemporary examples. You will learn how to use predictive methods, such as COVID19 PCR tests, how to interpret results, and how evidence affects the test credibility.

Online Seminar 3:
BIOS PROJECT – COMMERCIAL PERSONALIZED GENOMICS SERVICES IN PATIENT CARE – THE ROLE OF TUMOR GENETIC PROFILING, MOLECULAR IMAGING AND TARGETED THERAPIES IN THE TREATMENT OF NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER

GOC, module 3, Friday, 16th of October,
13.00 – 15.00 CEST

In this online seminar, the role of tumor genetic profiling, molecular imaging and targeted therapies in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer will be presented.
