    An Introduction to Machine Learning https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-machine-learning-c4f53d48-57b9-468c-bf48-8107350d6d40 Machine learning gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. It encompasses a broad range of approaches to data analysis with applicability across the biological sciences. Lectures will introduce commonly used algorithms and provide insight into their theoretical underpinnings. In the practicals students will apply these algorithms to real biological data-sets using the R language and environment. Please be aware that the course syllabus is currently being updated following feedback from the last event; therefore the agenda below will be subjected to changes.

The course starts with an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments for the detection of genome-wide DNA binding sites of transcription factors and other proteins. We first show data quality control and basic analytical steps such as alignment, peak calling and motif analysis, followed by practical examples on how to work with biological replicates and fundamental quality metrics for ChIP-seq datasets. On the second day, we then focus on the analysis of differential binding, comparing between different samples. We will also give an introduction to ATAC-seq data analysis for the detection of regions of open chromatin.

It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard.

  • IAFIG-RMS: Bioimage analysis with Python

    9 - 13 December 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    IAFIG-RMS: Bioimage analysis with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/iafig-rms-bioimage-analysis-with-python THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED! The aim of this 5 days course is to develop motivated participants toward becoming independent BioImage Analysts in an imaging facility or research role. Participants will be taught theory and algorithms relating to bioimage analysis using Python as the primary coding language. Lectures will focus on image analysis theory and applications. Topics to be covered include: Image Analysis and image processing, Python and Jupyter notebooks, Visualisation, Fiji to Python, Segmentation, Omero and Python, Image Registration, Colocalisation, Time-series analysis, Tracking, Machine Learning, and Applied Machine Learning. The bulk of the practical work will focus on Python and how to code algorithms and handle data using Python. Fiji will be used as a tool to facilitate image analysis. Omero will be described and used for some interactive coding challenges. Research spotlight talks will demonstrate research of instructors/scientists using taught techniques in the wild. This event is organized in collaboration with the [Image Analysis Focused Interest Group](http://iafig-rms.org/) and is sponsored by the [Royal Microscopical Society](https://www.rms.org.uk/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data

    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-1cd0c9cc-dbb1-416f-8738-5bd702af8877 Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq. The course website providing links to the course materials can be found [here](http://hemberg-lab.github.io/scRNA.seq.course/index.html).

  • Snakemake workshop

    6 - 7 January 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Snakemake workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/snakemake-workshop Data analyses usually entail the application of many command line tools or scripts to transform, filter, aggregate or plot data and results. With ever increasing amounts of data being collected in science, reproducible and scalable automatic workflow management becomes increasingly important. The [Snakemake](https://snakemake.readthedocs.io/en/stable/) workflow management system is a tool to create reproducible and scalable data analyses. Workflows are described via a human readable, Python based language. They can be seamlessly scaled to server, cluster, grid and cloud environments, without the need to modify the workflow definition. Finally, Snakemake workflows can entail a description of required software, which will be automatically deployed to any execution environment. With over 100k downloads on Bioconda, Snakemake is a widely used and accepted standard for reproducible data science that has powered numerous high impact publications. This 2-day workshop with, at the first day, teach how to use Snakemake for reproducible data analysis. On the second day, we will further discuss advanced topics and everybody is welcome to apply the obtained knowledge for his or her own analysis project while getting help from the organizers. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Introduction to R for Biologists

    15 - 16 January 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to R for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-r-for-biologists-5984ebec-9d4f-45d1-b258-b43555de5a1d R is one of the leading programming languages in Data Science. It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
