May 8 – 13, 2023 WORKSHOP

Data visualisation for biology

Location: Hinxton, UK

Brief info:

This course will give insights into, and practical experience in, data visualisation for exploring complex and multi-dimensional biological data.

Biological and life sciences data often consists of multiple dimensions: a combination of numerical values, ordered data, categories, and time-series. To make sense of this data, simple plots like scatterplots, barcharts, and boxplots are often not enough. Still, visualisation is critical in gaining deep insight into the data. This is why many custom visualisations originated in the biological field.

In this course, we will dive into the topic of visualisation of complex biological data and how it can be used to gain insight into and get a "feel" for a dataset, so that targeted analyses can be defined. It will be delivered through a mixture of lectures and workshop sessions, and will provide hands-on experience in developing visualisations. The course will focus on working with omics (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics) data rather than e.g. imaging data.

July 3 – 8, 2026 CONFERENCE

World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP)

Location: Madison, WI

Brief info:

This is the premier conference for researchers and professionals involved in genetic improvement of livestock. Delegates from around the world gather every four years to attend the scientific program and to network with colleagues. This builds on previous successful congresses in Madrid (Spain, 1974 and 1982), Lincoln (USA, 1986), Edinburgh (UK, 1990), Guelph (Canada, 1994), Armidale (Australia, 1998), Montpellier (France, 2002), Belo Horizonte (Brazil, 2006), Leipzig (Germany, 2010), Vancouver (Canada, 2014), Auckland (New Zealand, 2018), and Rotterdam (The Netherlands, 2022).

The 2026 WCGALP will be co-costed by Iowa State University, University of California-Davis and University of Wisconsin- Madison.

Early registration ends: January 01, 2026

Abstract due: January 07, 2026
