Ensembl Workshop

This 1,5 days’ workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining lots of hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser but also provides them with the necessary background information. The workshop is primarily targeted at wetlab researchers.

On Tuesday 21 February 2017 the workshop will be held in computer room COO-6 from 09:30 – 17:00 hours. On Wednesday 22 February 2017 the workshop will be held in the same computer room COO-6 from 09:30 - 13:00 hours.

An experienced teacher of the European Bioinformatics Institute will give this workshop.

The Ensembl project (see at: www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of, mainly vertebrate, genome sequences. Most modules consist of a presentation, followed by the opportunity to do exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring problems/questions about their research to try to tackle these during the workshop using Ensembl.

This workshop is open to all participants of Molmed, MGC and Erasmus MC and other interested students and scientists, and is free of charge for MolMed members. Participation is limited to 24 participants due to the nature of the workshop.

The only prerequisite for this workshop is general knowledge of molecular biology / genomics and a familiarity with web browsers.

This course is 0,6 ECTS.

Registration fee
The registration fee for this course is € 300,- However, it is free of charge (100 % discount) for members of MolMed.

General information
Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed

From January 1st, 2017 the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%

• However, the Research Management course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice

• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.

  • The course fees of research master’s students will be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
  • Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
  • However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

Some courses have less course days: SPSS 3 days, Survival Analysis 2 days, Management 2 days, Presenting 1,5 days and also other may be shorter as indicated on the website.

Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.

All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.

Those who register for a course, symposium or workshop agree with these financial conditions.
