  • Big Data and Cloud Computing

    Elixir node event
    Big Data and Cloud Computing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-cloud-computing Recent advances in genomics, proteomics, imaging and other technologies, have resulted in data being generated at a faster rate than they can be meaningfully analysed. In this course we will show you how cloud computing can be used to meet the challenges of storage, management and analysis of big data. The first half of the course will introduce cloud infrastructure technologies. The second half will cover tools for collaborative working, resource management, and creation of workflows. The instructors will demonstrate how they are using cloud computing in their own research. N.B. If you sign up for this course, you will be automatically registered for an [AWS educate account](https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/), which will provide you with sufficient AWS credits to complete the course exercises. If you decide to continue using cloud computing after the course, you will need to either purchase more credits or apply for a grant from programs like: [AWS Cloud Credits for Research](https://aws.amazon.com/research-credits/), [Microsoft Azure for Research](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/academic-program/microsoft-azure-for-research/) or [Google Cloud Platform Education Grants](https://cloud.google.com/edu/).

  • Bioinformatics for Principal Investigators

    16 - 17 September 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    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. Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge [Raven](http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/docs/faq/raven/n5) account you will need to book or register your interest by linking [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/booking-form/?event-id=3070941&course-title=Bioinformatics%20for%20Principal%20Investigators).'' 2019-09-16 08:30:00 UTC 2019-09-17 16:00:00 UTC University of Cambridge Craik-Marshall Building, Cambridge, United Kingdom Craik-Marshall Building Cambridge United Kingdom CB2 3AR Bioinformatics University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training [] Principal Investigators from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutionswho are using or planning to use bioinformatics in their research workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
