This is a reminder to all members that IBA will fund attendance at courses organised by EMBL.
For instance, one upcoming course organised by EMBL is a six day advanced course on fluorescence super-resolution microscopy that will cover both theory and practical application of current super-resolution microscopy techniques to biological questions.
The course will take place in Heidelberg, Germany from July 8th to 13th 2019 and the deadline for applying is April 25th!
Please visit the EMBL course site for more information on the course and for the link to apply.
Also, please have a look at EMBLs website for an overview of other available courses. Perhaps there is something that fits perfectly with your research!
Due to the massive interest we had for this course when it was first posted, we are setting up a second course with Pina Kingman!
So, do you want to use illustrations as an effective communication tool? Learn the essentials of graphic design and visual communication theory, drawing by hand and drawing digitally during this one week course with Pina Kingman. To join the course 18-22 March 2019 in Oslo, apply within 10 February 2019. More information on the course you can find on our course list or here.
Time and place: March 18, 2019 11:00 AM – March 22, 2019 1:00 PM, “Bikuben” in Kristine Bonnevies Hus, Blindernvn 31 (entry from Moltke Moes vei), University of Oslo
We offer travel stipends to our members!
The next deadline to apply is January 15th.

We would like to thank all the speakers and participants for contributing to a great annual IBA meeting in Tromsø! The scientific presentations were inspiring, the weather was perfect, and the food at Ishavshotel was delicious. We hope that you were able to get to know each other, mingle around and establish a long-lasting collaborations with fellow scientists. After all, this is what IBA is all about!
Just before the summer holidays, Oslo node of IBA had its first social meeting of the year!
We enjoyed good company, discussions, and planned future collaborations over good food in the beautiful Oslo fjord.
We are looking forward to future meetings!
A unique intensive course on “Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance” is jointly organised by IBA and the National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA) 26-30 November, 2018, at Hjortviken Konferens outside Gothenburg. The course features lectures by internationally leading scientists, opportunities for participants to present research in poster walks and ample time for networking. Scientific lectures describing antibiotic resistance from other perspectives focusing on ethics, public awareness and media are also included. The preliminary program is available here Preliminary Programme Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance NDPIA IBA
Registration deadline: 17 September 2018

This course is a continuation of TTA bioinformatics course level 1 and requires some basic knowledge of whole genome assembly, including quality assessment of raw data, trimming and contig assembly. Although not a strict requirement, we do recommend participants to attend in level 1 before signing up for this advanced course.
Participants of the hands-on session must bring their own laptops. A list of required preparations including instructions on how to install Geneious trial version will be provided end of August.
Part I: Seminars 11:00 – 12:30:
Theoretical introduction to the course and short repetition of required level 1 content.
11:00 – 11:30 Timo Lutter (TTA) – SNP calling, phylogenetic tree building and whole genome alignment
Nermin Zecic (TTA) – RNAseq and differential gene expression
11:30 – 12:00 Henrik Hasman – (Statens Serum Institut, DK) – Identification of acquired antibiotic resistance genes with ResFinder
12:00 – 12:30 Jon Bolin (FHI) – Mechanisms of foreign DNA acquisition and their detection in microbial genomes
12:30 – 13:00 Lunch
Part II: Hands-on exercises 13:00 – approx. 17:00:
Map to reference assembly and building SNP trees in Geneious with RAxML(using Ebola virus isolates as an example)
Basic alignments of bacterial genomes and draft genomes to detect large-scale evolutionary events (rearrangements/inversions) with Mauve
RNAseq and differential gene expression in Geneious
