Symposium « Les données des Infrastructures en Biologie et Santé: enjeux et perspectives » 16 & 17 Dec.

The National Infrastructures in Biology and Health (INBS) Club is organizing its first symposium on a theme that concerns them all: the life of the data generated within them.

This two half-day symposium will be in French and will have multiple objectives:

  • Practices and developments in progress or implemented by INBS or Research Infrastructures of other disciplines for the management of our data (PGD structure),
  • Ideas for improvement and cohesion for the future, regarding access to storage and scientific computing structures,
  • Moral and ethical responsibility towards these data (FAIRisation, ethical OpenScience…) and their valorisation,
  • Finally, this first meeting will also focus on the exchange of experiences between the INBS and with our respective partner institutions.

Deadline for face-to-face participation registration: 15th of November

Deep learning improves macromolecule identification in 3D cellular cryo-electron tomograms

An international team of scientists from France, Spain and Germany, under the leadership of Charles Kervrann, from France-BioImaging BioImage Informatics Node, developed a deep learning-based framework to quickly identify multiple classes of macromolecules in cryo-ET volumes. This DeepFinder pro­gramnow published in Nature Methods, builds upon convolutional neural networks that have already proven highly valuable in the microscopy field.


The club of National Research Infrastructures in Biology and Health celebrates its 1st anniversary

The club of the National Research Infrastructures in Biology and Health was launched one year ago and it gathers representatives from  16 national infrastructures.  See the work that have been done so far and do not miss the first event organized by the club on the life of the data generated within the research infrastructures in biology and health in December!
