The course is geared towards life scientists wanting to be able to understand and use basic statistical methods. It would also suit those already applying biostatistical methods but have never got a chance to reflect on and truly grasp the basic statistical concepts, such as the commonly misinterpreted p-value! Important date Application opens: now Application closes: 2019-03-31 Confirmation to accepted students: 2019-04-16 Responsible teachers: Olga Dethlefsen, Eva Freyhult If you do not receive information according to the above dates please contact olga.dethlefsen@nbis.se, eva.freyhult@nbis.se Course content ●Basic statistical theory and concepts incl. stochastic variables, density and distribution functions, central limit theorem, confidence intervals ●Hypothesis testing ●Resampling ●Linear and logistic regression methods ●Model selection and regularization ●Unsupervised learning, incl. clustering and dimension reduction methods Education In this course we focus on active learning approach. The course participants are expected to do some pre-course reading and exercises, corresponding up to 16h studying. The education consists of teaching blocks alternating between mini-lectures, group discussions, live coding sessions etc. A special focus is put on understanding basic concepts by solving problems with pen and paper. We believe in less-is-more principle, so be ready to say no to digital exhaustion to truly learn something with our modern “blackboard approach”.

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-identifying-and-characterising-variants-from-ngs-data-bfeba574-0bba-47f5-9de9-fdabc6d50ce4 This course covers state-of-the-art and best-practice tools for the analysis of genomes. We describe, and give hands-on experience of, the entire analysis workflow from raw data generated by a sequencing machine to deriving variant calls (e.g. Single Nucleotide Variants) that are ready for downstream analysis, interpretation and prioritisation. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a prioritised, clinically-relevant list of DNA variants. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control, variant-calling and annotation. 2019-05-30 08:30:00 UTC 2019-05-31 16:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners

    10 June 2019

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-analysis-for-beginners High-throughput RNA-sequencing is now the standard technique for quantifying transcript abundance in a biological sample of interest. In this course we will describe the processes that take place once you submit a library for RNA sequencing, and what data you should expect to receive from the Bioinformatics Core. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a list of genes that show statistically significant differences between your biological conditions of interest. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control and assessing differential expression. We will also showcase some web sites you can use for enrichment and pathways analysis. 2019-06-10 08:30:00 UTC 2019-06-10 16:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

This will include reading the data into R, quality control and performing differential expression analysis and gene set testing, with a focus on the edgeR analysis workflow. You will learn how to generate common plots for analysis and visualisation of gene expression data, such as boxplots and heatmaps. You will also be learning how alignment and counting of raw RNA-seq data can be performed in R. This workshop is aimed at biologists interested in learning how to perform differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data when reference genomes are available.. 2019-06-24 08:30:00 UTC 2019-06-24 16:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Sharing Bioinformatics Training and Building a Region-wide Programme

    9 - 10 July 2019

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Sharing Bioinformatics Training and Building a Region-wide Programme https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/sharing-bioinformatics-training-and-building-a-region-wide-programme High-throughput genomic data analysis is now a defining skill in the life sciences. There is already a shortage of researchers who can bridge the gap between computational approaches to data and biological insights, and this demand is only getting stronger. Bioinformatics training is under-provisioning in the North of England, with many small Bioinformatics teams at different institutes lacking the resources to deliver a full Bioinformatics training programme. 2019-07-09 09:30:00 UTC 2019-07-10 14:30:00 UTC Sheffield, United Kingdom Sheffield United Kingdom [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition)

    10 - 11 October 2019

    Leuven, Belgium

    The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology
