    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].

  • COSMIC: Exploring cancer genetics at high resolution

    Elixir node event
    COSMIC: Exploring cancer genetics at high resolution https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cosmic-exploring-cancer-genetics-at-high-resolution [COSMIC](http://cancer.sanger.ac.uk) is an expert-curated database of somatic mutations causing human cancer. Broad and comprehensive in scope, it describes over 4 million coding mutations across all human cancer disease types, and encompasses over 20 million somatic variants across other molecular mutation mechanisms in oncogenetics. Mutations are annotated across the entire genome, with deep-resolution expert curation focused on almost 200 key cancer genes. This course will use the live COSMIC website and genome browser to show you how to access and explore this information, seeking to identify genetic causes and targets in all human cancers. A timetable for this event is available [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/postgraduate/services/bioinfo-cosmic).

    COSMIC: Integrating and interpreting the world’s knowledge of somatic mutations in cancer https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cosmic-integrating-and-interpreting-the-world-s-knowledge-of-somatic-mutations-in-cancer [COSMIC](http://cancer.sanger.ac.uk), the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer, is the world’s largest and most comprehensive expert manually curated resource for exploring the impact of somatic mutations in human cancer. Based at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and available publicly at https://cancer.sanger.ac.uk/cosmic, the latest release includes almost 6 million coding mutations across 1.4 million samples from over 26,000 papers. COSMIC captures the full spectrum of genomic data relating to somatic mutations, so in addition to coding mutations, gene fusions, non-coding mutations, copy-number variants, methylation and drug resistance mutations are included. This course will use the live COSMIC website and tools to show you how to access and explore this information, seeking to identify genetic causes and targets in all human cancers. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    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.
