  • Tools for reproducible research - ISMB/ECCB 2019

    21 July 2019

    Basel, Switzerland

    Tools for reproducible research - ISMB/ECCB 2019 Educators: Bjoern Grüning (RBC), Johannes Köster, Devon Ryan Date: 21.07.2019 Location: ISMB/ECCB Basel Content: The typical data analyst must simultaneously juggle multiple projects, each having its own duration and software requirements. As few analysts have any formal training on structuring or even writing the code necessary to perform an analysis, it is unsurprising that the iterative analytic process can produce a wide assortment of almost identically named files (e.g., “final_results.txt”, “final_results.version2.txt”, “final_results.really_final.txt”), all with unclear origins and produced with a hodge-podge of similarly poorly named scripts. The near impossibility of tracing a results file to the exact process that produced it creates untold difficulties both when it comes time to publish results as well as when planning subsequent experiments months or years later (afterall, which of the “final_results” files was really the “right one”?). These issues are further compounded by software paths and other similar assumptions being hard-coded into scripts, preventing easy analysis replication elsewhere. Performing analyses in a reproducible and traceable manner is clearly needed to combat such problems. Schedule Overview 2:00 - 2:10 pm Installing conda and snakeMake 2:10 - 2:30 pm Intro to conda and bioconda (slides) 2:30 - 3:30 pm Hands-on Session: creating conda envs and installing packages from bioconda repo This practical would require installing hisat, samtools and deeptools via bioconda 3:30 - 4:00 pm Hands-on Session: writing conda recipes Topics in BioVis (including examples) Visualization of sequences, macromolecules, omics data, biological networks 4:00 - 4:15 am Coffee Break 4:15 - 4:35 pm Intro to snakemake Specific tools for visualizing large-scale biological data 4:35 - 6:00 Hands On Session: Writing a snakemake workflow wrapper for mapping, indexing and creating coverage files Learning goals: In this hands-on tutorial, we demonstrate how Conda can be used to deploy specific software versions easily, reproducibly, and without administrator credentials. Moreover, we demonstrate how Conda’s ability to create isolated software environments helps to avoid side-effects between different analyses or different steps of the same analysis. Attendees will also learn how to create conda recipes themselves, so they can contribute new packages to projects such as Bioconda. We further demonstrate how Snakemake can be used in combination with Conda and Containers to create reproducible analysis workflows and execute them on any platform from workstations to clusters and the cloud. Finally, using snakePipes as an example, we demonstrate how Conda and Snakemake can be used to define reproducible and flexible workflows for complex genomics analysis. Prerequisites: - Laptops with Linux or MacOS - Pre-installed Miniconda - install via miniconda : - Expected audience should have basic familiarity with python, git and the command line.

  • ELIXIR Beacons (at ISMB / ECCB)

    22 July 2019

    Basel, Switzerland

    ELIXIR Beacons (at ISMB / ECCB) This workshop will demonstrate the Beacon API, a data discovery protocol that allows users to determine the presence or absence of a particular allele in a dataset, without disclosing any further data differentiating the individuals it contains. The ELIXIR Beacons project is a Driver Project of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health that provides a simple way to federate data discoverability. The ELIXIR Beacons protocol can allows any variation data back end to be connected to the ELIXIR Beacons network which can then be queried to ask questions like _'does this dataset have any information about allele 'X' at position 'Y' in the genome?'_. This workshop will show how recent extensions to the Beacon API has extended its functionality by adding support for additional types of genomic variants and improved metadata support. Additionally we will also demonstrate the accompanying ELIXIR Beacon reference implementation which utilises risk mitigation strategies by integrating the ELIXIR Authorization and Authentication Infrastructure (AAI), demonstrating to data owners how to light Beacons at different tiers of data access: open, registered, or controlled. 2019-07-22 14:00:00 UTC 2019-07-22 16:00:00 UTC Gary Saunders Congress Center Basel, Basel, Switzerland Congress Center Basel Basel Switzerland [] Gary Saunders <>, Frédéric Haziza <> [] [] meetings_and_conferencesworkshops_and_courses [] beacon
