Workshop Invt Immuno2019 banner for article

In invertebrates, pathogenic infection triggers a cascade of responses, including phagocytosis,inflammation, encapsulation, and secretion of antimicrobial peptides to fight off foreign invaders. These responses stem solely from circulating blood cells as the primary mediators of invertebrate immunity. Since its discovery in 1882, invertebrate immunity has been proven to be a vast and complex pathway in which researcher continually uncovered new molecules and mechanisms for the pathogenic defense.

This workshop focuses on the immunity of crustaceans as they are economically valuable species with a fast-growing research progress on their pathogenic defense mechanisms. Currently, various platform technologies, such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics, have been used to gain insight into this pathway as well as to improve the crustacean survival rates after pathogenic outbreaks. The breadth of topics chosen for this workshop should provide the participants with a broader understanding toward invertebrate immunity. Moreover, these uncovered biological phenomena would be relevant not only for invertebrates, but also for all living organisms.

Objectives of this Workshop:
1. To provide the most current knowledge on invertebrate immunity and to review the platform technology used in the analysis of invertebrate immune system.
2. To facilitate a basis for collaborative network between experts and participants in the field.

7.workshop system biology

Systems biology is an interdisciplinary field striving to reveal complex biological processes in an integrated and holistic approach. This newly emerged subject in modern biology has markedly gained increasing interest as a promising strategy to give in-depth insights on molecular mechanisms responsible for driving complex biological processes of lives. With such insights, engineering novel biological systems with desirable functions becomes possible. However, strong background in biology, computational modelling and mathematics are required to understand a complicated dataset extracted from dynamic processes in biology. Various multi-omics tools can be applied to study interactions between components of biological systems in different levels from genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and phenomics to give answer on how these interactions can give rise to functions of specific bio-systems from molecules, cells, organisms, or entire species through a sophisticated modelling strategy. Systems biology is undoubtedly now considered as central to all areas of biology and medicine, highlighting its importance in today’s research in life sciences.

The objectives of this workshop are  1) to update knowledge and information on systems biology from world-class experts and leading researchers from local institutes, focusing from its basic concept, multi-omics tools, and applications of systems biology on different biological questions for bioeconomy; 2) to share experience on bioinformatics and computational analysis of bio-dataset in systems biology in the hand-on workshop by experts from WUR; 3) To strengthen and expand research network in systems biology among researchers in academic and industrial sectors for further and future collaboration

Workshop on Shrimp Genomics and Bioinformatics was held on 25 April 2017 at Institut Pasteur, Paris, France. This workshop covered all major techniques of next-generation sequencing including genotyping, genomics and transcriptomics as well as the application of PacBio, Gene expression profiling with Illumina, and SHAMAN (SHiny Application for Metagenomics ANalysis) on research activities under SAFEAqua project.   

2. Workshop on Genomics and Bioinformatics

SAFEAqua Kick-Off Meeting during 24 – 27 April 2017 at Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

The SAFE-Aqua Kick-off Meeting started with a welcome address by Prof. Frédéric Tangy, Scientific Coordinator of SAFE-Aqua, explaining how the consortium members met and decided on working together on the project. It was followed by a brief project overview by Wanilada Rungrassamee, on behalf of Nitsara Karoonuthaisiri, Scientific coordinator of the project at BIOTEC.  All meeting participants then briefly introduced themselves and presented their involvement in the project.

All WP Leaders presented the objectives of their respective work packages, as well as the identified tasks/sub-tasks and participants involved. Focus was also placed on the expected Deliverables and Milestones. All staff involved in the project and present at the meeting worked together on planning work for WP2 Genome sequencing, WP3 Shrimp immunome, and WP4 Gut microbiome.

Workshop on Shrimp Genomics and Bioinformatics was organised on the second day. This workshop covered all major techniques of next-generation sequencing including genotyping, genomics and transcriptomics as well as the application of PacBio, Gene expression profiling with Illumina, and SHAMAN (SHiny Application for Metagenomics ANalysis) on research activities under SAFEAqua project.  

The third day was dedicated to project management training, which was organised by the Grants office. This training covered the EU policy monitoring and lobbying, EU project management and success story of INFRAVEC2, an EU-funded project.

This meeting ended with the scientific writing training, which consisted of a half-day conference by Dr. Sean McCarthy, who specialised in implement European Research Strategies within organisations. The presentation focused on how to write successful H2020 project proposals, highlighting the importance of a well-defined “Impact” strategy for projects and on a typical H2020 project writing timeline.

1. SAFEAqua Kick off Meeting

Dr. Rungnapa Leelatanawit and Dr.TanapornUengwetwanit were the first two senior researchers from BIOTEC who took a 3-month secondment (April – July 2017) to Institute Pasteur where they learned new genome sequencing techniques from Dr. Sean Kennedy and his team.
