    Elixir node event
    Core Statistics using R (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/core-statistics-using-r-online-live-training-1bdf4c7a-2283-4160-b3e3-4a8e7385502d This [award winning](https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/teaching-prizes/tel-prize/2020) virtually delivered course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. 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 confidently for statistics and data analysis # Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques # Know which tests are and are not appropriate R is an open source programming language so all of the software we will use in the course is free. 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 and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques.

    Systems biology: from large datasets to biological insight https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/systems-biology-from-large-datasets-to-biological-insight-d2a1656c-29ef-412d-9ddb-233bf139d811 This course covers the use of computational tools to extract biological insight from omics datasets. The content will explore a range of approaches - ranging from network inference and data integration to machine learning and logic modelling - that can be used to extract biological insights from varied data types. Together these techniques will provide participants with a useful toolkit for designing new strategies to extract relevant information and understanding from large-scale biological data. The motivation for running this course is a result of advances in computer science and high-performance computing that have led to groundbreaking developments in systems biology model inference. With the comparable increase of publicly-available, large-scale biological data, the challenge now lies in interpreting them in a biologically valuable manner. Likewise, machine learning approaches are making a significant impact in our analysis of large omics datasets and the extraction of useful biological knowledge. In-person course We plan to deliver this course in an in-person manner onsite at our training suite at EMBL-EBI, Hinxton.  Please be aware that we are continually evaluating the ongoing pandemic situation and, as such, may need to change the format of courses at short notice.

  • WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line

    24 August 2022

    WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-getting-started-with-whole-genome-mapping-and-variant-calling-on-the-command-line Life scientists are increasingly using whole genome sequencing (WGS) to ask and answer research questions across the tree of life. Before any of this work can be done, there is the essential but challenging task of processing raw sequencing data. Processing WGS data is a computationally challenging, multi-step process used to create a map of an individual’s genome and identify genetic variant sites. The tools you use in this process and overall workflow design can look very different for different researchers, it all depends on your dataset and the research questions you’re asking. Luckily, there are lots of existing WGS processing tools and pipelines out there, but knowing where to start and what your specific needs are is hard work, no matter how experienced you are. In this webinar we will walk through the essential steps and considerations for researchers who are running and building reproducible WGS mapping and variant calling pipelines at the command line interface. We will discuss how to choose and evaluate a pipeline that is right for your dataset and research questions, and how to get access to the compute resources you need. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for life scientists who are using and building whole genome sequencing mapping and variant calling pipelines. Some familiarity with the concepts of whole genome sequencing is recommended. **Presenter:** Dr Georgina Samaha, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 24 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here] (https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ekHib2_2QYazaH06VFMPgQ)** 2022-08-24 12:00:00 UTC 2022-08-24 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Whole genome sequencing Sequencing Genomics Bioinformatics Workflows Australian Biocommons training@biocommons.org.au [] [] 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
