5th Anniversary of ELIXIR Portugal

5thBioData ELIXIR Portugal is completing 5 years of excellence in supporting research, training and innovation in the national scientific system through management and advanced analysis of biological data. To celebrate this occurring, ELIXIR Portugal has decided to organize a dedicated day at the Bioinformatics Open Days 2021 (Braga, Portugal) to showcase what has been done in the past few years but also to foster an active discussion regarding the increasingly emerging fields of bioinformatics and data management. Talks: AI + Biology for Sustainable Chemicals

SL SilicoLife is a biotech company operating at the interface of biology and computation. In the 5th Talks, a brief introduction to SilicoLife's approach will be presented as well as details about SilicoLife's experience as the promoters and managers of a very ambitious synthetic biology project - ShikiFactory100 - where AI, retrosynthesis and rapid prototyping join forces to produce +100 molecules of the shikimate pathway.

Data Management Portal

Dataverse is an online platform for data sharing and publication. It allows users to upload datasets, describe them with recommended metadata fields, share them with other users, or publish them online with a DOI attribution. It is a domain-independent platform that requires little experience to use. Talks: The Microbiology and Biotechnology Community Talks comprise a series of monthly webinars given by collaborators and guest experts.

About this Event

The Microbiology and Biotechnology Community is focused on the development of genome-scale metabolic models for different organisms. In this webinar, we will overview some of its current activities such as:
