Basic bioinformatics concepts, databases and tools https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/basic-bioinformatics-concepts-databases-and-tools During this 3-day introduction to bioinformatics, BITS will take you along a guided tour that covers all basic aspects of biological sequence analysis. This workshop is an ideal opportunity to get familiar with bioinformatics and its many faces! At the end, you should be able to start tackling any basic bioinformatics problem: how to obtain relevant information about your gene, you know where to get the required sequence data, manipulate the sequences, and how basic software and algorithms function so you can fine-tune it in order the get the most out of your analysis.

Analysis of public microarray data using Genevestigator https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/analysis-of-public-microarray-data-using-genevestigator The morning session will give you an overview of the possibilities of Genevestigator, a search engine of curated and normalized publicly available gene expression data. The interface allows you to visualize spatio-temporal (tissue - developmental stage) and perturbational gene expression information of many species in a user-friendly graphical way. The afternoon session will focus on the practical applications in a hands-on tutorial on Genevestigator followed by concrete examples of software that can be used to further interpret the results of your Genevestigator searches, like Ingenuity Pathway Analysis and DAVID. Finally, you will be able to work on the questions that you want to answer in your own research under the supervision of the trainer. Participants are therefore encouraged to submit a description of the objectives of the analysis they want to perform.

  • Basic statistics theory

    22 Sep 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    Basic statistics theory https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/basic-statistics-theory After this basic statistics theory session, you should be able to: Understand basic statistical concepts and methods for statistical analysis of life sciences data Choose the correct statistical test for analyzing your data This training gives an introduction to the use of statistics for basic analyses of life sciences data. This training is a prerequisite introduction to a series of hands-on trainings on the statistical analysis of life sciences data: 'Basic statistics in R' and 'Basic statistics in Graphpad Prism'. If you want to follow one of these trainings, you have to follow this introduction. Ít will give you all the theoretical background that you need. Those that already have a strong statistical background may register directly for the 'Basic statistics in R, part II' training. No skills required.  9h30-12h30: Theoretical background 2017-09-22 09:30:00 UTC 2017-09-22 16:30:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010
  • Introduction to the analysis of NGS data

    08 Sep 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    Introduction to the analysis of NGS data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-the-analysis-of-ngs-data This training is an introduction to a series of trainings on the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data. This training is intended for newbies to the field and will teach them all background knowledge required to successfully complete the advanced NGS analysis trainings. To this end the training will give an overview of: - The Illumina platform - NGS data formats and file handling - Quality control of NGS data - Assembly and mapping of NGS data - Supporting IT: Galaxy and GenePattern platform This training is an introduction to 'Hands on introduction to ChIP-Seq analysis', Hands-on introduction to NGS variant analysis', 'GATK training', and 'RNA-Seq analysis for differential expression in GenePattern'. If you want to follow one of these trainings but you have no experience with NGS data you should follow this introduction.  2017-09-08 09:30:00 UTC 2017-09-08 17:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010
