    Bioinformatics carpentry utilizing Galaxy https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-carpentry-utilizing-galaxy Educators: de.STAIR Partners Date: April 12-16, 2021, 09:00 - 12:00 (MEZ) Location: Online Training Content: The upcoming training course is divided into five consecutive days, centered on bioinformatic questioning and utilizing Galaxy. Each training course is divided into an interactive lecture followed by a hands-on session. Each day will start with an optional discussion about the previous hands-on. We aim to convey the following topics. Monday, April 12th - Introduction to Galaxy Tutor: Steffen C. Lott In the first lesson, we will dive into the Galaxy platform to master data handling focused on bioinformatics. Here, we get to know the benefits of using Galaxy, the FAIR principles, version control, batch processing, and workflow design. Additionally, sharing data and working with Galaxy histories will also be part of this session. Tuesday, April 13th - Data formatting Tutor: David Brauer Galaxy and its integrated tools offer a flexible way for analyzing complex and diverse data. While autonomously generated data, such as RNA-seq data, are "usually ready-to-go", manually formatted data, like spreadsheets and other text documents, are more challenging to integrate. This course aims to give you an overview of the data formatting tools in Galaxy. We will showcase simple operations like transposing rows and columns and further introduce more complex data operations using regular expressions and UNIX utilities like "sed" and "awk". Wednesday, April 14th - Transcriptomics Tutor: Markus Wolfien This session will introduce the RNA-Seq data analysis capabilities of the Galaxy framework for scientific data analyses. We will compare current RNA-Seq technologies to meet specific research questions and show initial data exploration as well as quality control of NGS datasets. Further, concepts of genome alignment and data visualization will be introduced. Thursday, April 15th - Machine learning Tutor: Maximilian Hillemanns Machine Learning (ML) has become an indispensable part of today's data processing techniques. Nowadays, researchers are using Support Vector Machines (SVMs), Random Forests (RFs), and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to analyze their data. This session provides an introduction to different ML technologies and their applications using Galaxy. Together we will address the following questions: How can I use ML, and is it suitable to analyze my data, and what can ML tell me about my data (or not)? Friday, April 16th - Workflow Generator Tutor: Konstantin Riege This course showcases the setup of the de.STAIR Galaxy flavor, which enables you to set up a customized Galaxy instance on your own system. This Galaxy instance comprises our established workflow generator plugin, which leverages on a new concept of Galaxy Atoms that combines interactive tours and alternative tools. With this technology, we can build personalized, reusable Galaxy workflows in a guided and self-educated fashion. Here, we do also recap learning goals from previous training sessions. Prerequisites: This workshop is intended for students and researchers with a background in life sciences and a functional web browser.

    Core Statistics (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/core-statistics-online-live-training-372cc372-3912-4b4b-841e-95abaa36090a PLEASE NOTE that this course will be taught live online, with tutors available to help you throughout if have any questions. All resources and lectures will be recorded and uploaded to the course VLE page so that you will be able to access that information even if technical or time zone restrictions means that you aren't able to join us for all of the live sessions. This [award winning](https://www.cambridge.org/core/cambridge-technology-enabled-learning-prize-2020) virtually delivered course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R or Python software environments. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences. There are three core goals for this course: # Use R or Python confidently for statistics and data analysis # Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques # Know which tests are and are not appropriate Both R and Python are free software environments that are suitable for statistical and data analysis. In this course, we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to linear models and power analyses. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R or Python and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques.

    Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-working-with-unix-and-bash-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE that until further notice, due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus no courses will be offered as classroom based at the Training Facility. The Bioinformatics Team will be teaching the course live online in conjunction with the presenters. Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands. Building on the techniques learnt so far, we will then construct bash scripts combining the commands and structures already learnt into more complex, reusable tools. We will look at how we can apply these scripts to common problems faced in UNIX environments such as: communicating with remote servers; managing custom software installations and integrating these tools into our simple pipelines. This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.

  • [ONLINE] Interactive High-Performance Computing with Jupyter @ JSC

    20 - 22 April 2021

    [ONLINE] Interactive High-Performance Computing with Jupyter @ JSC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-interactive-high-performance-computing-with-jupyter-jsc Interactive exploration and analysis of large amounts of data from scientific simulations, in-situ visualization and application control are convincing scenarios for explorative sciences. Based on the open source software Jupyter or JupyterLab, a way has been available for some time now that combines interactive with reproducible computing while at the same time meeting the challenges of support for the wide range of different software workflows. Even on supercomputers, the method enables the creation of documents that combine live code with narrative text, mathematical equations, visualizations, interactive controls, and other extensive output. However, a number of challenges must be mastered in order to make existing workflows ready for interactive high-performance computing. With so many possibilities, it's easy to lose sight of the big picture. This course provides a detailed introduction to interactive high-performance computing. The following topics are covered: Introduction to Jupyter Parallel computing using Jupyter Coupling and control of simulations Interactive & in-situ visualization Simulation dashboards Prerequisites: Experience in Python Date: 20-22 April 2021, 09:00-13:00 Application Registrations are only considered until 1 April 2021, the maximal number of participants is limited.

  • [ONLINE] Working effectively with HPC systems @ SNIC

    20 April 2021

    [ONLINE] Working effectively with HPC systems @ SNIC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-working-effectively-with-hpc-systems In brief The seminar will present useful tools and best practices for working effectively on HPC systems. It is expected to be of interest for a general HPC system user, both at a more familiar (intermediate) or starting (beginner) level. To participate, register down below. Introduction Working efficiently with HPC starts with the tools you use to interact with the HPC system. It is also helpful to understand the general anatomy of HPC systems and storage. Following on from these fundamentals, we will give some recommendations for data organization on the system and examples of various types of file systems (e.g. parallel vs. local) and their individual strengths and weaknesses. We will then discuss the concepts of parallelism, scalability, scheduling and what types of OS and software you can expect of HPC systems. We will go through some important things to consider when building and installing software. Finally, we will look at different ways of running software on HPC systems and ways to monitor your software as it is running, with the aim of ensuring that your jobs are not poorly configured or wasting resources. While the content and the practices are useful for HPC systems in general, we will show examples and tools more specific for the NSC clusters, e.g. Tetralith and Sigma. Schedule The schedule for the day is divided into two main parts, before and after lunch break. The parts include several blocks of ca. 30 minutes including optional breaks. There will be opportunities for questions. Depending on time, the day might end with a longer questions session. The detailed schedule can be found at the NSC event page. 10:00 -12:00 Part I 12:00 -13:00 L u n c h 13:00 -15:00 Part II Topics/blocks Welcome, introductions and practicalities Tools at your end (e.g. terminal, ssh config., file transfer tools, VNC) HPC system anatomy (login and compute nodes, interconnect, storage) Properties and features of storage areas (e.g. quotas, performance, locality, backups, snapshots, scratch) Concept of parallelism (Amdahl’s law), scalability, scheduling and practical advice for good performance Software on an HPC system (OS, modules, python envs., concept of build envs., containers with Singularity) Ideas and strategies for organizing your workflow (data and file management, traceability and reproducibility) Interacting with the Slurm queueing system (requesting resources interactively or in batch) Practical example (preparing, submitting, monitoring and evaluating job efficiency) Materials The course materials, presentations, as well as detailed schedule etc., will be made available at the corresponding NSC event page.

  • Analyzing data in an HPC environment using R @SNIC

    22 April 2021

    Analyzing data in an HPC environment using R @SNIC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analyzing-data-in-an-hpc-environment-using-r Speakers: Henric Zazzi Do you use R for analysing large amounts of data? Join us at this free SNIC-PRACE course on speeding up the performance of R code by parallelizing it! Why run your R code in parallel? R is a freely available language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques: linear and nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification, clustering. But default R is not executed in parallel and consequently - for huge datasets or for extensive calculations - the analysis of your data can be quite slow. In this course, which is being organised by PDC in its role as a SNIC PRACE training centre, you will learn what parallelization means, and how to make your R code faster using parallelization. We will also teach you how to run these codes on Tegner, which is a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster at PDC.

  • QM/MM simulation with GROMACS + CP2K @ EPCC Online

    22 - 23 April 2021

    QM/MM simulation with GROMACS + CP2K @ EPCC Online https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/qm-mm-simulation-with-gromacs-cp2k-epcc-online Dmitry Morozov (Chemistry, University of Jyväskylä), Emiliano Ippoliti (Computational Biomedicine, Forschungszentrum Jülich), Holly Judge (EPCC, University of Edinburgh) 22 - 23 April 2021 9:30-15:00 CEST (8:30-14:00 BST) Online This course is organised and funded by BioExcel - the Centre of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research (http://bioexcel.eu) and PRACE, and delivered in collaboration with ARCHER2 - the UK national supercomputing service (https://www.archer2.ac.uk/).       Learning outcomes This course will equip participants to perform hybrid QM/MM simulations using the molecular dynamics code GROMACS in combination with the quantum chemistry package CP2K through an interface developed by one of the instructors from the BioExcel Centre of Excellence (www.bioexcel.eu). Prerequisites Participants should be familiar with using GROMACS to perform molecular dynamics simulations. A background in computational quantum chemistry is not strictly required since an introduction of key aspects will be provided, but previous familiarity is beneficial. You should be familiar with connecting to a remote machine using ssh and will benefit from experience using an HPC facility as you will execute hands-on practicals on the UK supercomputer ARCHER2. Description Most classical molecular mechanics (MM) force fields are not sufficiently flexible to model processes in which chemical bonds are broken or formed. Instead, some level of quantum mechanical (QM) description is needed to gain detailed mechanistic insights into reaction mechanisms, e.g. the catalytic action of enzymes, and to compute photochemical properties such as absorption and emission spectra of fluorescent proteins. However biochemical systems (including solvent) are too large to be solved in their entirety at ab initio QM level or efficiently even with a high-quality density functional theory (DFT) approximation. To overcome the cost of a QM description on the one hand versus the limitations of a MM treatment on the other hand, methods have been developed that treat a small critical region of interest at QM level while retaining the computationally cheaper MM force field for the majority of the system. Despite the simplicity of the QM/MM concept, its application is currently restricted to a relatively small group of specialised expert users often using in-house codes. To unlock the power of QM/MM simulations for the wider biomolecular simulation community, the BioExcel Centre of Excellence has developed an interface between the molecular dynamics code GROMACS, which is widely used in the biomolecular simulation community, and the quantum chemistry package CP2K, which supports calculations under periodic boundary conditions with DFT methods. This course explains key aspects relating to the use of QM/MM for biomolecular simulation with these two codes and equips participants with the ability to start using GROMACS and CP2K for this purpose in their own research. Participants are provided with the opportunity to gain hands-on practical experience running several example calculations on ARCHER2, the UK national supercomputing service. Topics that will be covered are: Introduction to QM/MM a brief overview of: Relevant computational quantum chemistry QM-MM coupling Functionals, basis sets, pseudopotentials, and dispersion How to use GROMACS+CP2K to perform biomolecular QM/MM simulations, including: Umbrella sampling Energy minimisation Large phytochrome protein system setup Calculation of photochemical properties CP2K parameter choice guidance, including: Checking convergence Modifying functional and basis set Performance Schedule (all times CEST) Day 1 9:30 Welcome 9:45 Lecture: Introduction to QM/MM I: computational quantum chemistry 10:15 Q&A 10:30 Break 10:45 GROMACS+CP2K Practical 1 12:00 Lunch 13:00 Lecture: Introduction to QM/MM II: QM-MM coupling 13:30 Q&A 13:45 Break 14:00 GROMACS+CP2K Practical 2 15:00 Wrap up Day 2 9:30 Lecture: Introduction to QM/MM III: functionals, pseudopotentials, dispersion corrections 10:00 Q&A 10:15 Break 10:30 Lecture & practical: CP2K parameter choice guidance 12:00 Lunch 13:00 GROMACS+CP2K Practical 3 14:30 Q&A 15:00 Wrap up Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They are also required to abide by the ARCHER2 Training Code of Conduct. Registration We expect high demand for this course and places are limited to 30, so we urge potential participants to register only if they meet the prerequisites and expect to be able to take part. Recordings will be made available after the course on the BioExcel YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/bioexcelcoe). Training materials such as practicals/tutorials will appear on the BioExcel Github (https://github.com/bioexcel), however these will require installation of a custom version of GROMACS (https://gitlab.com/aracsmd/gromacs/-/tree/2021.1-plumed-qmmm) that links with CP2K (this will be provided on ARCHER2). https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1204/ 2021-04-22 07:30:00 UTC 2021-04-23 13:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
