Bioinformatics and the Life Sciences with KNIME is the topic at the beginning of December at our meetup in Heidelberg. The event is hosted by Jürgen Reymann from Bioquant. Please register here.
Timo Sachsenberg from the University of Tübingen and Jon Fuller from KNIME will be giving talks.
The KNIME Image Processing experts, Christian Dietz and Martin Horn, will also be attending the meetup and are very happy to discuss any image processing topics during the networking part of the evening.
18.00-18.30 Arrival and networking over pizza
18.30-18.45 Introduction to KNIME, Jon Fuller, KNIME
18.45-19.15 "Multi-omics data analysis using OpenMS and SeqAn in KNIME" by Timo Sachsenberg, University of Tübingen
19.15-19.45 "KNIME in the data-driven lab of the future" by Jon Fuller, KNIME
Pizza and drinks will be provided.
Timo Sachsenberg is a PhD student and a member of the Applied Informatics Group under Prof Oliver Kohlbacher at the University of Tübingen. He is involved in the collaborative German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure program and conducts research into software and workflows for the analysis of multiple omics levels. His talk will provide an overview about how OpenMS and SeqAn tools are used in KNIME to create analysis workflows from the fields of proteomics, metabolomics and genome sequencing.
Jon Fuller is an Application Scientist at KNIME.com AG. He has expertise in the life sciences with a particular focus on topics such as 'druggability', 'drug binding kinetics' and 'life sciences server applications'. Jon has a background in the Natural Sciences, gaining a BA Physics (University of Oxford), and a PhD Bioinformatics (University of Leeds). He knows Heidelberg very well as he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, where he developed techniques and software to solve problems related to the systems biology of the liver as part of the Virtual Liver Network.
