Description:

Goal
The fast generation of large amounts of data is fundamentally changing the way how research is done today. Many domains of research are challenged with managing, analyzing and sharing genomics data. This is not just a challenge, it is an oppurtunity to implement this workshop for researchers to learn basic handling of genomics concepts, skills and tools. This workshop is aimed at researchers in the life sciences at all career stage and is designed for learners with little to no prior knowledge of Linux and command line tools or biological networks in Cytoscape. A basic knowledge of programming in R is recommended.

Workshop Topics
The main ambition or this workshop is that researchers get more familiar with genomics data and handle it in a more efficient way. The following topics will be covered during the workshop.
 
DAY 1
Introduction to Linux and the command line
The first session will introduce you to the use of Linux and the command line for managing and analyzing genomics data.
 
DAY 2​
Data manipulation in R
This session gives an introduction to the use of the R packages plyr and ggplot2 for data manipulation and subsequent graphing.

Initiation Cytoscape
In this tutorial, you will be introduced to the basics of Cytoscape (how to make a network, change the visualisation parameters such as the layout, ...), and to more advanced functionalities such as data integration and data analysis using Cytoscape plugins.

Keywords: Cytoscape, R-programming, Linux
