Bioinformatics and Biomathematics Training Hub

The Bioinformatics and Biomathematics Training Hub (BBTH) is a BBSRC-funded collaborative project to coordinate the development and sharing of training materials and expertise across the UK’s National Institutes of Bioscience (NIB — http://www.nib.ac.uk/) for the increasingly important areas of bioinformatics and biomathematics.

Guided by our NIB partners, researcher surveys, and interactions with interested bodies such as Elixir-UK, we will work to ensure that best use is made of existing assets and capabilities, that best practice is shared across the NIB, and that redundant effort is minimised going forwards.

Extracting biological information from gene lists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication.

Python is a flexible programming language that is becoming increasingly popular for scientific computing. This course will give you a basic introduciton in how to use Python. The course will work towards a script for parsing FASTA files and calculating the GC-content of DNA sequences.

Scientific topics: Software engineering

Keywords: Python for Biologists, John Innes Centre, JIC

Quality Control in Sequencing Experiments

This course looks at the different ways in which sequencing based studies can fail and the options for visualisation and QC which allow you to identify and diagnose these failures at an early stage. It is designed to be of use to anyone who is using sequencing as part of their research, not just...
