  • Basic statistics in R

    19 - 29 May 2017

    Leuven, Belgium

    Basic statistics in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/basic-statistics-in-r Get an idea of what R and Rstudio is, where to find more information, how to install and use it Use R to handle data: data types, reading data Use R to create graphics Use mathematical functions and basic statistical techniques in R  Write and manage R scripts This training gives an introduction to the use of the statistical software language R. R is a language for data analysis and graphics. This introduction to R is aimed at beginners. The training covers data handling, graphics, mathematical functions and some statistical techniques.  R is for free and for more information you can visit the site the CRAN web site.This training is an introduction to the use of R and RStudio and stops at very basic analyses (t-tests and non-parametric equivalents). A full overview of statistical analyses in R including regression, ANOVA will be given in the follow-up training Basic statistics in R, part II.   Requirements The training is intended for people who have no experience with R. However, understanding of basic statistical concepts is required, such as data types, normal distribution, descriptive statistics, tests for comparing groups... If you don't have sufficient statistical background you are strongly encouraged to attend the Basic statistics theory training.  This training is recommended for people with no experience in R who are planning to follow a training that requires some R background, like the metagenomics training and the RNA-Seq training. BITS provides 15 laptops for their training sessions. Depending on the number of participants (max 20), it might be that you have to share the laptop with one other participant but you can also choose to bring your own laptop for this training session. 2017-05-19 09:30:00 UTC 2017-05-29 17:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Park Inn by Radisson Leuven, Leuven, Belgium Park Inn by Radisson Leuven Leuven Belgium 3010

  • Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data

    25 - 26 May 2017

    Toronto, Canada

    Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/informatics-on-high-throughpuut-sequencing-data With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing platforms, it is becoming feasible to consider sequencing approaches to address many research projects. However, knowing how to manage and interpret the large volume of sequence data resulting from such technologies is less clear. The CBW has developed a popular 2-day course covering the bioinformatics tools available for managing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data, where the focus is on Illumina reads although the information is applicable to all sequencer reads. Beginning with an understanding of the workflow involved to move from platform images to sequence generation, participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Assess sequence quality Map sequence data onto a reference genome (required) Perform de novo assembly tasks Quantify sequence data Integrate biological context with sequence information 2017-05-25 08:30:00 UTC 2017-05-26 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada

  • Runtime systems for heterogeneous platform programming@MDS

    29 - 30 May 2017

    Runtime systems for heterogeneous platform programming@MDS https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/runtime-systems-for-heterogeneous-platform-programming-mds-f0fddf48-9ddf-4de1-85ca-1b8a6a95e343 Keywords Runtime systems, thread programming, accelerators, hardware abstraction, performance portability.   Course description: This course will present the state of the art of runtime system support for programming heterogeneous platforms. Heterogeneous computing platforms—such as multicores equipped with accelerators—are notoriously difficult to program due to the strong differences in performance characteristics among the various available computing units and also to the discrete memory spaces of accelerating boards. The course will present the StarPU runtime system developed at Inria by the STORM Team in Bordeaux. Learning outcomes Participants will understand the benefit of the task-based programming model together with performance modeling, automatic data management and dynamic scheduling in speeding up application development on heterogeneous computing platforms and providing long term performance portability.Prerequisites Basic knowledge of C programming language and accelerator programming languages (nVidia Cuda, OpenCL). https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/618/ 2017-05-29 07:30:00 UTC 2017-05-30 10:30:00 UTC

  • Deep learning application in the life sciences

    29 May 2017

    Diepenbeek, Belgium

    Deep learning application in the life sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-application-in-the-life-sciences Deep learning has made headlines over the last couple of years, with applications in various domains. This approach has a lot of potential in life sciences. As datasets in life sciences increase in size there is a growing need for techniques that can fully take advantage of them. The advent of Big Data alongside an exponential increase in computing power has led to the re-emergence of neural networks (now mostly referred to as “Deep Learning”). These techniques flourish when given enough data, which makes them ideal for the interpretation of massive datasets. In this talk, we provide an introduction to Deep Learning as well as some examples of how it is being applied in the context of life sciences. Speakers: Jan Yperman and dr.
