  • Identification of Eigen-genes, consensus modules and Network Motifs in co-expression (or other biological) networks. (Webinar)

    Identification of Eigen-genes, consensus modules and Network Motifs in co-expression (or other biological) networks. (Webinar) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/identification-of-eigen-genes-consensus-modules-and-network-motifs-in-co-expression-or-other-biological-networks-webinar One of the most important tasks of systems biology is to create explanatory and predictive models of complex biological systems. Availability of gene expression data in different conditions has paved the way for reconstructing direct or indirect regulatory connections between various genes and gene products. Most often, we are not interested in single interactions between gene products; instead, we try to reconstruct networks that provide insights into the investigated biological processes or the entire system as a whole. This webinar will expand upon the concept of Gene Co-expression Networks to elucidate Weighted Gene Co-expression Network Analysis (WGCNA), and introduce the importance of visualising clustered gene expression profiles as single ‘Eigengenes’. It will describe the complete protocol for WGCNA analysis starting from normalised Gene Expression Datasets (Microarrays or RNA-Seq). This will be followed by a discussion on methods of extraction and analysis of consensus modules and Network motifs from Gene Co-Expression Networks and Transcriptional Regulatory Networks. The webinar will be presented in the form of a lecture and tutorial with screenshots that enable listeners to emulate the protocols in R. Note that this is a webinar and not a coding exercise. Links to further reading and practice will be shared.

    31 August - 18 December 2020

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning in biology, autumn session https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-in-biology-autumn-session Large amounts of data and compute resources have enabled the development of high-performance machine learning models. This is particularly due to deep learning techniques. By looking at many data samples, these models can find structure in the data that is useful for predictive and explorative analysis: e.g. classification, clustering, data generation, dimensionality reduction, etc. The most popular applications within biotechnology are concerned with image segmentation, diagnostics, sequence analysis, etc. However, deep learning models are far from straightforward to implement correctly due to the many different hyperparameter settings, optimization procedures, architecture choices, etc. In this course, we will make use of Jupyter Notebok and Keras, which are both based on Python, to apply deep learning techniques on both bio informatics and bio image informatics data. We aim to work towards applications that participants would like to study. 2020-08-31 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
