Workshop on Single Molecule-based Super-resolution Microscopy

Workshop on Single Molecule-based Super-resolution Microscopy: from Acquisition to Analysis, from Theory to Applications

Dear Colleagues,

Are you studying proteins or RNAs in the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, or mitochondria? Are you curious whether these molecules move freely or undergo confined movement, how fast and how far far they move, how they are dynamically arranged at nanoscale resolution in live cells, or how they change behavior after a pharmacological stimulation or in a disease model? If so, then you should not miss this workshop at the Department of Biomedicine at UiB.

The core facility for Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) located at the Department of Biomedicine (UiB) has recently been opened to all users. SMLM is a state-of-the-art technology, which dramatically improves spatial resolution over standard, diffraction-limited microscopy. Major biological insights have been made using this technology into the spatial and temporal organization of proteins and nucleic acids within subcellular compartments (such as nucleus, cytoplasm and plasma membrane) at nanoscale resolution. To help potential users become familiar with this cutting-edge technology, we will organize at least two workshops (1st in 2022, 2nd in 2023) addressing both theoretical and experimental considerations for SMLM, including fluorescent labeling, sample preparation, hardware requirements, image acquisition, analysis in live cells. Several outstanding scientists, who have developed novel labeling/acquisition/analysis for single molecule-based super-resolution imaging of protein or RNA, have confirmed their participation. This is a great opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with these scientists, and bring your research questions and get inputs from them.

Registration deadline: 24th August 2022.

We look forward to your attendance!

Biblioteket tilbyr følgende kurs høsten 2022 – meld deg på!

  • Introduksjon til Endnote
  • Søkekurs i PubMed og Embase
  • Introduksjon til systematiske oversikter
  • Litteraturstudier for studenter

Kursene skal etter planen holdes som hybridløsning, hvor det er mulighet for å delta både fysisk og digitalt via Zoom. Kursene er fortrinnsvis for ansatte og stipendiater. De fleste studenter får bibliotekkurs som en del av sin studieplan. Dersom ikke det er tilfelle kan de melde seg på disse kursene. Det siste kurset er spesielt for studenter som vil vite mer om litteraturoppgaver, og som ikke har hatt eget kurs om det.

Kursdatoer, påmelding og mer informasjon finnes på https://www.uib.no/ub/126018/kurs-og-veiledning#kurs-med-p-melding

Innhold i kursene:

Introduksjon til EndNote: I kurset lærer du å bygge opp et EndNote-bibliotek og lage en referanseliste i Word. Kurset består av korte demonstrasjoner og praktiske øvelser. Kurset dekker: Lage et EndNote-bibliotek, importere referanser, manuell innlegging, lage grupper, finne fulltekst, sette inn referanser i en tekst, lage og formatere en litteraturliste.

Søkekurs i PubMed og Embase: Alle bruker PubMed, men med litt ekstra kunnskap kan du gjøre mer effektive søk. I kurset viser vi for eksempel hvordan du kan bruke emneordene MeSH, eller utnytte filtre i Clinical queries. Embase er den andre store medisinske artikkeldatabasen som dekker en del andre tidsskrifter enn PubMed/Medline. Embase er derfor et viktig supplement til PubMed.

Introduksjon til systematiske oversikter (systematic reviews): Kurset gir en introduksjon i temaet systematiske oversikter. Vi gjennomgår ulike databaser for å finne systematiske oversikter, og prosessen å selv utføre en systematisk oversikt som å skrive en protokoll, forberedelser til søking, tips og verktøy for datahåndtering og kvalitetsvurdering, og rapportering. Vi gir også informasjon om hvilken hjelp og støtte biblioteket kan gi i arbeidet med systematiske oversikter.

Litteraturstudier for studenter: Kurset er til studenter som skal skrive litteraturoppgave som bachelor- eller masteroppgave, og som ikke har fått eget kurs som del av studieprogrammet. Vi går gjennom prosessen i en litteraturoppgave. Kurset dekker forberedelsene til et litteratursøk, hvordan du skal arbeide deg gjennom alle treff og hvordan du skal dokumentere metodene. Vi ser på noen eksempler og svarer på spørsmål.

Onboarding: Mottak av nyansatte ved UiB

Mottak av nyansatte ved UiB

Writing course: Horizon Europe and beyond

The reality is that writing research proposals is time-consuming with a low success rate. This course will provide a practical guide on how to build on past and current projects funded by the EU, navigate the vast Horizon Europe framework program, and write competitive research proposals.

Course content
The European framework program Horizon Europe is the EU’s main funding programme for research and innovation. Running from 2021 to 2027 with a budget of 95.5 billion euros, it is the most extensive research funding programme globally.

However, the complexity and documentation render the program challenging to navigate. These challenges are the drivers behind developing a practical how-to course on using the vast amount of data in the EU system to think outside the box and understand and navigate the Horizon Europe framework program.

Learning outcome
Participants will get an overview of:
• How to take advantage of past and current projects funded by the EU Commission to think outside the box?
• How to navigate Horizon Europe – Pillar II to find relevant ‘Call to Action’?
• How to write the core concept of a research proposal?

Target group
Suitable for those who want to learn more about practical creativity, Horizon Europe and writing research proposals. For this round, the target group is associate professors, professors and experienced researchers (with some years of research experience after their defense and interested in finding out what is relevant for them in the EU funding landscape).

Time and Venue
Tuesday 31 May at 09.00-11.30 at the Eitri Medical Incubator, first floor.

Registration
Please register by filling out this simple form: Horizon Europe and Beyond – a tool to navigate the EU landscape (uib.no)

Courses offered at the Medical library, Spring 2022:

  • Introduction to Endnote
  • Searching in PubMed and Embase
  • Introduction to systematic reviews

The courses are planned as a hybrid solution, with the option of attending either physically or online through Zoom. The courses are mainly for employees and PhD candidates at the Faculty of Medicine and for employees at Helse Bergen. Courses for students are normally given as a part of their study program. If that isn’t the case, they can attend these courses as well.

Dates, registration and more information can be found on the library’s web page:

Courses in English: https://www.uib.no/en/ub/128609/courses-and-guidance#courses-requiring-registration

Courses in Norwegian: https://www.uib.no/ub/126018/kurs-og-veiledning#kurs-med-p-melding

Short description:

Introduction to EndNote: EndNote is a tool for managing references. The course covers how to build your own EndNote library, how to use references from EndNote in the writing process with Word, formatting the text and generating literature lists.. Other functionalities like manually adding references, grouping, removing duplicates, and importing full text will also be covered.

Searching in PubMed and Embase: Everyone can use PubMed. However, with some extra knowledge you can search more efficiently. In the course we demonstrate the use of subject headings MeSH, and the use of filters for quick limiting to clinical queries (like diagnostic studies, or intervention studies). Embase is another important medical database which covers a number of different journals than PubMed/Medline. Therefore, it is a valuable supplement to PubMed, if you want to get a better overview over the literature within your field.

Introduction to systematic reviews: The course gives an introduction to systematic reviews. The library presents several databases for finding systematic reviews, and gives an overview over the process of doing your own systematic review: write a protocol, prepare the search, data management, quality appraisal, and guidelines for reporting. We will also inform about the role of the library in the different phases of the work with a systematic review.

Useful courses for handling research data

The goal of the University of Bergen is that data resulting from research activity should be made readily available for reuse in accordance with FAIR-principles. UiB Library Research Support offers following courses to help meet these requirements:

Data management Plan

The Norwegian Research Council and Horizon 2020 require projects to submit a data management plan (DMP). A data management plan describes how data in a research project will be collected, processed and made available.

The courses «Introduction to DMP” and “DMP workshop” give you a short introduction to what a data management plan is, why you need it, and how to write one.

In the workshops you will have the opportunity to work on your own DMP using a digital DMP tool, and then share your DMP with other participants and get feedback from peers and experts on your own DMP.

  • September 17th at 10:00-14:00 (introduction to DMP + workshop). Read more. Sign up here.
  • October 15th at 10:00-10:45 (introduction to DMP, in Norwegian). Sign up here.
  • November 12th at 10:00-14:00 (introduction to DMP + workshop). Read more. Sign up here.

How can you make your research data open and FAIR?

Researchers are encouraged to make their data openly available as early as possible in the research process, and most funders, e.g. Norwegian Research Council or Horizon Europe, and publishers require that the research data from a project is made openly available. But how can you do this in practice, and where?

In the course you will get a short introduction to how you can make your research data open and FAIR, and how to archive your data in our institutional archive UiB Open Research Data.

  • September 3rd at 10:00-11:30. Sign up here.
  • October 1st at 10:00-11:30. Sign up here.

Finding & reusing research data

Sharing and re-using quality-assured research data is considered good scientific practice. Re-using existing datasets as secondary data avoids unnecessary duplication of efforts and can inspire new avenues of research.

For example, new questions or methods can be applied to a dataset, or data from different studies or disciplines can be integrated. In this course you will learn how you can use existing datasets as a resource for your research. The course consists of three short modules, and you can participate in either or all of the modules.

  • August 27th  at 09:30–12:00. Sign up here
  • November 26th at 09:30-12:00. Sign up here
