  • Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation

    30 - 31 May 2019

    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 [] []
  • Docker and Reproducibility

    13 - 14 June 2019

    Torino, Italy

    Docker and Reproducibility https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/docker-and-reproducibility Docker is a container framework for Linux that allows a developer to make easier the creation, deployment and execution of applications by using containers. During the workshop the participant will learn the core concepts of Docker and how to easily embed bioinformatic pipelines/workflows into a docker container. By the end of this course, the participants will learn: - the basic concepts of Docker; - to assess the advantages of a containerized software development & deployment; - to use Docker engine features necessary for running containerized applications; - how to use the Docker File and Docker Hub to create a Docker image; - the various networking mechanisms available in Docker. 2019-06-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-06-14 18:00:00 UTC ELIXIR-IIB, CNR, University of Turin University of Turin, Molecular Biotechnology Center, Torino, Italy University of Turin, Molecular Biotechnology Center Torino Città Metropolitana di Torino Italy 10126 Bioinformatics Computer science University of Turin elixir.ita.training@gmail.com [] bioinformaticiansBiologists, Genomicists, Computer ScientistsPhD and graduate students, young researchers and PIs in the life science and computational biology field 15 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served DockerContainersReproducibilitycomputer-science
  • Introduction to RNA-seq analysis in R

    24 June 2019

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to RNA-seq analysis in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-analysis-in-r-4ff2ae93-b96a-4dc0-8f92-957042a88c1d In this workshop, you will be learning how to analyse RNA-seq count data, using R. 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 [] []
