The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition)

The Brain Mosaic aims to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field.

October 10, 2019 — October 11, 2019

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: The Non-Coding Genome

Exploring the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. Interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function.

October 16, 2019 — October 19, 2019
Heidelberg, Germany

EMBL Course: Computing Skills For Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry

Computation is an integral part of today’s research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. Training in several key tools, focusing on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing.

October 16, 2019 — October 18, 2019
Heidelberg, Germany

EMBL Science and Society Conference: Science as Storytelling: From Facts to Fictions

In this meeting we will explore the role of narrative in the communication of science. What does narrative in contemporary fiction have to say about the human dimension of science? Are its practitioners villains or heroes, stereotypes or multidimensional characters?

October 24, 2019 — October 25, 2019
Heidelberg, Germany
