    An Introduction to R: Software For Statistical Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-r-software-for-statistical-analysis-5b7d1c9b-1e47-4b94-b5b4-c90e3fecc35d The aim of this course is to introduce participants to the basics of statistical analysis and the open source statistical software [R](https://www.r-project.org/), a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. Participants will actively use R throughout the course, during which they will be introduced to principles of statistical thinking and interpretation by example, exercises and discussion about a range of problems. The examples will be used to present a variety of statistical concepts and techniques, with no focus on any specific discipline. Important information: We have 12 configured laptops for use at the workshop. After these laptops have been allocated, participants will either need to share, or bring their own. These laptops will be allocated to the first individuals to express an interest in using them. When booking, please indicate under "Special requirements" if you wish to use one of the 12 laptops or bring your own. Participants bringing their own laptop will be given instructions on what software to install.

    Elixir node event
    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.
