IRTG2403 - Regulatory Genome

Peer-to-Peer Skills Fair



Are you a life scientist employing high-throughput techniques to generate highcontent data sets and have no clue how to properly analyse them?

Do you wish to collaborate with a computational expert to get the most out of it and discover new findings?




Are you a computational expert who analyses large experimental data, but you have no clue how exactly these were generated?

However, having more insights into the experimental techniques and set-ups would greatly enhance your capacity to perform meaningful data analysis and generate novel concepts?




Why not team up with your peers to benefit from and complement each other’s skills?

Pursuant to their vision to bridge the traditional boundaries of disciplines, the IRI graduate school unites three DFG-funded PhD programmes, which train life scientists of different research backgrounds as well as computational biologists, mathematicians and informaticians: The IRTGs 2290 (Molecular interactions in Malaria) and 2403 (Dissecting and reengineering the regulatory genome) and the RTG 2424 (Computational aspects of cancer research).

The appropriate and most exhaustive analysis of high-content data sets necessitates computational expertise. Vice versa, bioinformaticians and mathematicians rely on experimental data generated by life scientists in wet lab experiments. The reciprocal understanding of both perspectives greatly enhances your own scientific approach, foster interdisciplinary collaborations which leading to new findings and expand your research network.

Together, we want to launch a peer-to-peer collaborative learning and teaching platform for scientific skills. We would like life scientists and computational researchers with similar or related research interests to team up in tandems or small groups to share their scientific skills with each other.

We are really looking forward to our first Peer-to-peer skills fair/speed-"dating". It is a social event (too), so just bring a beer or other drink to this zoom meeting so that we can enjoy (re-)connecting!
