An international conference on bioinformatics, biocomputational systems, and biotechnologies NOTE: Support for both physical attendance and virtual attendance.
"2020 & 2021 have shown us how important digital solutions have become to enable collaboration and to work remotely. With less access to the lab and your colleagues, the move to digital tools is even more important.
In this On Demand webinar you will be given an introduction to where the digital lab space can become a reality for you and how to begin your digital transformation.
We will cover the areas where digitization will improve your workflow and sample safety, giving you more time to focus on what is important. Your Science!"
"Developed by Clariant, Sunliquid is an innovative and sustainable technology used to produce bio-ethanol. In this hour-long webinar, Clariant Group Leader Benjamin Fürst will introduce the process and describe how he and his team use modelling techniques to optimise fermentation processes.
Resources in process development for fermentation processes are always limited, often because of time constraints or the limited access to fermentation vessels. For this reason, optimal usage of the collected data is of paramount importance.
In this session, you will see how to maximise insights and understanding of the process by modelling data collected offline (like product titer and parameters of downstream processing) and online sensor data (such as pO2) in context of the Functional Data Explorer platform in JMP. The modelling approach is based on constant and functional factors and responses. Because of the limited design space, the new extrapolation control for the profiler plays an important role."
"Olivier Le Deuff explains the scope of the concept of hyperdocumentation coined by Paul Otlet in 1934. Hyperdocumentation is described by the Belgian bibliographer as the ultimate goal of documentation. The concept of hyperdocumentation is as much an idea as an object that originated from the continuous amplification of two connected trends: the multiplication of documents since the beginning of the twentieth century, and the increase of analytical capabilities meant to decipher these documents. As envisioned by Otlet, these processes amounted in the fusion of documents and instruments leading the way to new formats and devices that open new possibilities in terms of document consultation and manipulation. The aim of the talk is to show the current relevance of the concept of hyperdocumentation and the associated epistemological, technical and ethical issues. The talk will look at both the historical context surrounding Paul Otlet and current hyperdocumentary devices."
"Artificial intelligence (AI) is currently a buzzword across almost all scientific disciplines and has the potential to revolutionize diagnostic approaches in inherited diseases. But when it comes to variant curation, is AI capable of replacing human expertise? A new study by Stanford University compares data quality from their Automatic VAriant evidence DAtabase (AVADA) to the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD).
The results show that expert curation by variant scientists is irreplaceable in the field of clinical genomics, with HGMD recovering nearly 40% more disease-associated mutations than the AI-powered AVADA.
In this webinar, we demonstrate the depth and breadth of HGMD through a series of use-cases where the manually curated database outperforms AI solutions ..."
"The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the potential role that wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) can play in assessing aggregate community health. However, efforts to translate SARS-CoV-2 gene copy numbers obtained from wastewater samples into meaningful community health indicators are nascent. This work will highlight two efforts to promote the use of WBE: 1) comparison of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater measurements during a low-frequency and a high-frequency clinical testing period and 2) adoption of automated, high-throughput methods to enable state-wide monitoring in Kansas."
"This session will provide an overview of the current drug trends in drug-impaired driving and Medical Examiner casework. Several case histories will be used to detail the analytical and legal challenges as well as various drugs’ effects on human performance.
A certificate of participation will be granted to each participant based on 1.0 contact hours of instruction toward credit."
"The CDC estimates that nearly 48 million people fall ill and 3000 people die annually as a result of foodborne illness. Listeria is a concern due to the high percentage of fatalities that occur as a result of contracting Listeriosis. Many of these cases are preventable. During this virtual event, experts will discuss tangible best practices in Listeria detection, mitigation and control."
