We would like to draw your attention to the Agenda of the next
10th Annual Workshop of the National Reference Laboratories for E. coli in the EU
that will be held in Rome on 5-6 November, 2015.
Participation of observers is welcome. In the case, please contact Ms. Susan Babsa at firstname.lastname@example.org for the registration, before October 28, 2015.
EU RL for E. coli provides specific services related with the activities of organising the proficiency testing scheme, such as the production and provision of certified reference materials and reference strains, preparation and shipment of certified samples for quality assessment for methods’ validation and specific training programs.
Such services may be now required by using the specific form accessible through the EU-RL Services section of the EU-RL website.
This is to bring to your attention the Report and the presentations of the
Basic Course on Bioinformatics tools for Next Generation Sequencing data mining
organized last 11-12 June 2015 by EU-RL VTEC and ISS IT Service (SIDBAE).
The pdf version of the related programme, presentations and Report are now all available through the E. coli genomics section of the EU-RL website.
EU-RL VTEC and IT services of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome, have developed a web platform for the analysis of genomic data in the field of public health and food safety, with the aim of deploying a comprehensive bioinformatics approach to the study of food-borne zoonoses and infectious diseases at the human and animal interface.
The Galaxy platform ARIES (Advanced Research Infrastructure for Experimentation in genomicS) will be accessible in the next few days!
ARIES is currently optimized for the analysis of E. coli genomes, but the tools implemented can be adapted to the analysis of other pathogens upon request, by integrating reference databases.
The use of a common and easy-to-use platform will...
