    Using the Ensembl Genome Browser https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/using-the-ensembl-genome-browser-b763c62e-9dff-40c2-b9bf-82369f4a1911 The [Ensembl Project](http://www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of, mainly vertebrate, genome sequences. This 1-day workshop offers participants the possibility of gaining hands-on experience in the use of the Ensembl genome browser but also provides them with the necessary background information. This course will focus on the vertebrate genomes in Ensembl, however much of what will be covered is also applicable to the non-vertebrates (plants, bacteria, fungi, metazoa and protists) in Ensembl Genomes. There may be some tools and topics that do not apply to non-vertebrates; if you have any questions about this, please email the Ensembl Outreach Project Leader, [mailto:emily@ebi.ac.uk Emily Perry].

  • Summer School - Bioinformatics for Biologists: An introduction to Data Exploration, Statistics and Reproducibility

    Elixir node event
    Summer School - Bioinformatics for Biologists: An introduction to Data Exploration, Statistics and Reproducibility https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/summer-school-bioinformatics-for-biologists-an-introduction-to-data-exploration-statistics-and-reproducibility This 1-week course aims to provide an introduction to the best practices and tools needed to perform bioinformatics research effectively and reproducibly. Focusing on solutions around handling biological data, we will cover introductory lessons in data manipulation and visualisation in R, statistical analyses, and reproducibility. The R component of the course will cover from basic steps in R to how to use some of the most popular R packages (dplyr and ggplot2) for data manipulation and visualisation. No prior R experience or previous knowledge of programming/coding is required. The course also includes introductory sessions in statistics and working examples on how to analyse biological data. At the end of the course we will address issues relating to reusability and reproducibility. More information about the course can be found [here](https://e.issuu.com/anonymous-embed.html?u=bioinformaticscambridge&amp;d=bioinformaticsforbiologists_july201). This course is run in collaboration with the [Institute of Continuing Education](https://www.ice.cam.ac.uk/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Bioinformatics for Principal Investigators

    Bioinformatics for Principal Investigators https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-for-principal-investigators-295ef296-f98b-471c-842e-32786d63fd1e The aim of this workshop is to provide principal investigators with an introduction to the challenges of working with biological data and to the best practices, and tools, needed to perform bioinformatics research effectively and reproducibly. On day 1, we will cover the importance of experimental design, discuss the challenges associated with (i) the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (utilising RNA-seq as a working example) and (ii) the application of machine learning algorithms, as well as issues relating to reusability and reproducibility. On day 2, we will put into practice concepts from day 1, running a RNA-seq data analysis pipeline, going from raw reads through differential expression analysis and the interpretation of downstream analysis results. Challenges encountered at each step of the analytical pipeline will be discussed. Please note that day 2 is optional. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
