Epigenomic Data Analysis
15 - 16 June 2017
Montreal, CanadaEpigenomic Data Analysis https://bioinformatics.ca/workshops/2017/epigenomic-data-analysis-2017 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/epigenomic-data-analysis-814bc674-0a0a-42a1-9bd5-bbc43ae8b2b6 High-throughput sequencing of Chromatin-Immunoprecipitated libraries (ChIP-seq) and of bisulfite converted DNA (WGBS) have become increasingly common and have largely supplanted microarrays for chromatin and DNA methylation profiling. When processed appropriately, ChIP-seq data provides base-pair resolution representations of transcription factor DNA-binding events and nucleosome (histone) modifications genome-wide. Similarly, WGBS can provide a quantitative genome wide profile of cytosine methylation. The CBW has developed a 2-day course providing an introduction to histone ChIP-seq and WGBS data analysis followed by integrated tutorials demonstrating the use of open source ChIP-Seq and WGBS analysis packages. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools (FASTQC, BWA, MACS2, FindER, samtools, Picard, BisSNP). The course also includes an overview of integrative epigenomic tools that have been developed to explore ChIP-Seq and WGBS data together with other epigenomic datasets such as RNA-seq, DHS-seq and ATAC-seq. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Align ChIP-seq and WGBS sequence data to a reference genome (required) Identify narrow and broad peaks from ChIP-seq data Identify methylated levels from WGBS data Visualize and summarize the output of ChIP-Seq and WGBS analyses Explore integrative tools for epigenomic data sets 2017-06-15 08:30:00 UTC 2017-06-16 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Montreal, Montreal, Canada Montreal Montreal Montreal Canada ChIP-seq Epigenomics  email@example.com   30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest 
EMBO Practical Course Tree building: Advanced concepts and practice of phylogenetic analysis
24 - 29 September 2018
Faro, PortugalEMBO Practical Course Tree building: Advanced concepts and practice of phylogenetic analysis http://meetings.embo.org/event/18-phylogenetics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-tree-building-advanced-concepts-and-practice-of-phylogenetic-analysis The use of phylogenetic methods to reconstruct the evolutionary history of molecular sequences is a vital part of biological research. These methods underpin studies on the evolution and epidemiology of plant and animal parasites and disease-causing organisms, and more generally they allow an objective analysis of the patterns and processes generating biological diversity. To carry out phylogenetic analysis properly, it is necessary to have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the key methods and approaches. This EMBO Practical Course has been designed to provide the theoretical and practical skills needed to carry out state-of-the-art phylogenetic analyses. The past few years have seen have an explosion in new methods of analysis including the application of Bayesian analysis methods, the development of improved non-stationary models that better represent the dynamics of sequence evolution, the application of population genetic theory to phylogenies through the use of multispecies coalescent, and the development of methods for high-throughput genome-wide analyses. This EMBO Practical Course has been designed to cater for these newest methods and for understanding how they relate to the more traditional methods. Our goal is to teach technical sophistication without losing sight of the need for a critical attitude to data and analyses. 2018-09-24 09:00:00 UTC 2018-09-29 16:00:00 UTC Cymon J.
