  • Basic statistics and data handling

    7 - 9 December 2016

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Basic statistics and data handling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/basic-statistics-and-data-handling This three day course is intended to open doors to applying statistics - whether directly increasing skills and personally undertaking analyses, or by expanding knowledge towards identifying collaborators. The end goal is to drive confident engagement with data analysis and further training - increasing the quality and reliability of interpretation, and putting that interpretation and subsequent presentation into the hands of the researcher. Each day of the course will deliver a mixture of lecture, workshop and hands-on practice – and will focus on the following specific elements. Day 1 focuses on basic approaches and the computer skills required to do downstream analysis. Covering: Basic skills for data manipulation in R. How to prepare your data effectively. Principles of experimental design and how this influences analysis. On day 2, participants will explore the core concepts of statistics – so that they can begin to see how they can be applied to their own work, and to also help with better critical evaluation of the work of others. Covering: Basic statistics concepts and practice: power, variability, false discovery, t-test, effect size, simulations to understand what a p-value means. On day 3 will use some practical statistics examples in R to introduce concepts in data presentation for publication. Covering: Some practical examples of statistics in R. Visualising and publishing your data. Course materials are available [here](https://bioinformatics-core-shared-training.github.io/winter-school2016/).

    Variant Discovery with GATK4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-analysis-with-gatk-1c39207f-184f-4cb6-a01e-2e4ee6aa4ee3 This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling variants with the [Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit](https://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/), using the “Best Practices” developed by the GATK team. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant discovery process, what are the operations performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. In the course of this workshop, we highlight key functionalities such as the germline GVCF workflow for joint variant discovery in cohorts, somatic variant discovery using MuTect2, and copy number variation discovery using GATK-CNV. All analyses are demonstrated using GATK version 4. Finally, we demonstrate the use of pipelining tools to assemble and execute GATK workflows. The workshop covers basic genomics, all currently supported Best Practices pipelines as well as pipelining with WDL/Cromwell/FireCloud. This includes the logic of the major pipelines, file formats and data transformations involved, and hands-on operation of the tools using goal-oriented exercises. *Day 1: Introduction to Genomics, GATK Best Practices and Pipelining *Day 2: Germline short variant discovery (SNPs + Indels) *Day 3: Somatic variant discovery (SNVs + Indels + CNVs) *Day 4: Writing pipelines with WDL and running them in FireCloud Please note that this workshop is focused on human data analysis. The majority of the materials presented does apply equally to non-human data, and we will address some questions regarding adaptations that are needed for analysis of non-human data, but we will not go into much detail on those points.

    EMBO Practical Course Tree building: Advanced concepts and practice of phylogenetic analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-tree-building-advanced-concepts-and-practice-of-phylogenetic-analysis The use of phylogenetic methods to reconstruct the evolutionary history of molecular sequences is a vital part of biological research. These methods underpin studies on the evolution and epidemiology of plant and animal parasites and disease-causing organisms, and more generally they allow an objective analysis of the patterns and processes generating biological diversity. To carry out phylogenetic analysis properly, it is necessary to have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the key methods and approaches. This EMBO Practical Course has been designed to provide the theoretical and practical skills needed to carry out state-of-the-art phylogenetic analyses. The past few years have seen have an explosion in new methods of analysis including the application of Bayesian analysis methods, the development of improved non-stationary models that better represent the dynamics of sequence evolution, the application of population genetic theory to phylogenies through the use of multispecies coalescent, and the development of methods for high-throughput genome-wide analyses. This EMBO Practical Course has been designed to cater for these newest methods and for understanding how they relate to the more traditional methods. Our goal is to teach technical sophistication without losing sight of the need for a critical attitude to data and analyses. 2018-09-24 09:00:00 UTC 2018-09-29 16:00:00 UTC Cymon J.

    Variant Discovery with GATK4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-discovery-with-gatk4 This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling germline short variants, somatic short variants, and copy number alterations with the [Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK)](https://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/), using “Best Practices” developed by the GATK methods development team. A team of methods developers and instructors from the Data Sciences Platform at Broad will give talks explaining the rationale, theory, and real-world applications of the GATK Best Practices. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant-calling process, what key operations are performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. If you are an experienced GATK user, you will gain a deeper understanding of how the GATK works under-the-hood and how to improve your results further, especially with respect to the latest innovations. *Day 1: Introductory and Overview. The first day of the workshop gives a high-level overview of various topics in the morning, and in the afternoon we show how these concepts apply to a case study. The case study is tailored based on the audience, as represented by their answers in our pre-workshop survey. *Day 2: Germline Short Variant Discovery. Today we dive deep into the tools that make up the GATK Best Practices Pipeline. In the morning we discuss variant discovery, and in the afternoon we look at refinement and filtering. You will have the opportunity both in the morning and in the afternoon to get hands-on with these tools and run them yourself. *Day 3: Somatic Variant Discovery. Today we will cover Somatic Variant Discovery in more depth. In the morning we primarily focus on calling short variants with Mutect2, and in the afternoon we look at copy number alterations. Both sections have a paired hands-on activity. *Day 4: Pipelining. Over the first three days, you would have learned a lot about different pipelines and tools that you can use in GATK. Today we will be learning all about how those pipelines are written in a language called WDL. In the afternoon we cover other useful topics to working on the cloud, including Docker and BigQuery. Please note that this workshop is focused on human data analysis. The majority of the materials presented does apply equally to non-human data, and we will address some questions regarding adaptations that are needed for analysis of non-human data, but we will not go into much detail on those points. The hands-on GATK tutorials in this workshop will be conducted on [Terra](https://terra.bio/), a new platform developed at Broad in collaboration with Verily Life Sciences for accessing data, running analysis tools and collaborating securely and seamlessly. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
