This free course will introduce users to the powerful search and retrieval methods available within ENA (European Nucleotide Archive) for annotated sequences, genomes, raw data and metadata, as well as download options from the ENA browser and an introduction to the various ENA browser tools. There will also be a section on cross references and how to retrieve accessions for other resources linked to the primary data in ENA.
Do you have marine data, metadata and/or samples with a biomolecular focus? Would you like to access the resources of ELIXIR for the management, analysis and interpretation of your data? Would you like to ensure your data is sustainable beyond the life of the project? Or would you simply like to know how to use available data resources more widely?
ENVRI week is a week dedicated to Environmental Research Infrastructures. It is organized twice a year, in November and in May. ENVRI week hosts ENVRIplus project related sessions as well as several other sessions targeting different groups of stakeholders.
BiodivERsA and EKLIPSE invite all interested individuals to participate in the upcoming webinar, titled “Nature-based Solutions: Pandora box or reconciling concept?”. The webinar will run from 13:00 to 14:30 (CET). There will be a total of five speakers making presentations, and the topics will include:
The Zoological Station Anton Dohrn will host a workshop, co-organized with the OECD, entitled "Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean Economy". The OCSE-SZN workshop will analyze how scientific progress and innovation are contributing to the development of marine and maritime activities in order to define the best strategies for protection and recovery of marine ecosystems. The workshop will be attended by about 50 international experts from the most renowned research centers, the private sector and intergovernmental organizations. In the two days, four crucial themes will be discussed about th
Data are products of measurements, which are sensitive to many factors such as, for example, the technique and type of technology used to make them, the way the specific instruments are prepped, the kind of reference material employed, instrument deployment configurations, not to mention seasonality and other environmental influences. The full potential of collected data can be exploited only if they are adequately characterized on the basis of the effective qualities of the underlying measurements.
The workshop Moving2Gather will take place in France in Montpellier (grande salle de réunion du Centre Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive) from December 18th to 20th 2017. This meeting aims at gathering ecologist, modelers and numerical analysts around the tools dedicated to movement ecology. Registration is free but mandatory.
The Coastal Ecology Workshop, this year celebrating its 25th anniversary, This years’ workshop #CEW2017 will be organized by the Department of Estuarine & Delta Systems of NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research. It will be held in the pittoresque village of Wemeldinge, located next to 'National Park Oosterschelde'. As every year, this workshop is especially intended for early career and PhD researchers that work on any topic related to coastal ecology. However, senior researchers are also welcome to share their knowledge and experience.
The German Science Year 2016*17 “Seas and Oceans” as well as the Africa strategy of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research provide an excellent opportunity to organize an international workshop in Mindelo/Cape Verde to present and discuss the current state and future perspectives of marine and atmospheric research and academic education in West Africa. It will be jointly organized by the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the National Institute for Fisheries Development in Mindelo (INDP).
This Expert Workshop on Food from the Ocean will take place in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday 14 September 2017. It is organised by the High Level Group (HLG) of Scientific Advisors of the European Commission's Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) and Science Advice for Policy by European Academies EC Consortium (SAPEA).
The purpose of the workshop is to permit critique by the wider expert community of the evidence review and synthesis produced by SAPEA so that work can begin on the SAM HLG Scientific Opinion.
