  • Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing

    15 July 2016

    Canberra, Australia

    Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/detecting-mutations-with-short-read-sequencing Reed A. Cartwright, Arizona State University Studying the process of de novo mutation from deep-sequencing of related samples is a difficult task. Because de novos are rare, artifacts generated by experimental and biological error tend to be more common than true positives. While de novos can be identified through validation, this is a slow process. In order to estimate mutation rates on large datasets in an automated way, we need to develop new probabilistic models that can handle sources of false positives. In this talk I will be discussing new computational methods to detect de novo mutations and their application to three different systems: human trios, ciliate mutation accumulation experiments, and yellow box eucalyptus.

  • Oxford Nanopore MinION Sequencing - Data Handling, Analysis and Applications

    1 November 2016

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Oxford Nanopore MinION Sequencing - Data Handling, Analysis and Applications https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/oxford-nanopore-minion-sequencing-data-handling-analysis-and-applications Nanopore sequencing is one of the newest sequence technologies, in which single DNA molecules are sequenced directly, without the need for an intervening PCR amplification step or a chemical labelling step. It offers the potential of read lengths of tens of kilobases. The Oxford Nanopore MinION is a portable sequencing device that already has proven its power in e.g. the rapid identification of viral pathogens, the monitoring of ebola, genome assembly improvement, and environmental and food safety monitoring. As a member of the pre-release MinION Access Programme (MAP), Edinburgh Genomics has considerable experience in both generating and analyzing MinION sequence data, and also has published one of the first software tools to visualize and analyze these data (M Watson et al. poRe: an R package for the visualization and analysis of nanopore sequencing data.

The principal advantage of RAD-seq is the ability to simultaneously examine tens of thousands of genetic loci with vastly reduced sequencing costs versus whole genome approaches. RAD-seq can be used on crosses of any design as well as wild populations and organisms with and without a reference genome. Applications include SNP discovery, linkage mapping and QTL mapping, but also more complex analyses such as population genomic and phylogeographic studies. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RAD-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs (e.g. FastQC, BWA, samtools, IGV, Stacks) will be used. In the last section of this workshop we will focus on linkage analysis and population genomics. 2016-11-29 00:00:00 UTC 2016-11-30 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsRAD-seq

  • Linux for Genomics

    20 January 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-04835f08-3c91-4dc6-be5c-9ccb661c495e Genomic studies produce vast amounts of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Linux is particularly suited to working with such files, and is therefore arguably one of the most important tools in a bioinformatician’s toolkit. The Linux command-line enables one to view, filter and manipulate large text files that are difficult or impossible to handle with applications like Word or Excel, write pipelines to perform certain tasks, and run bioinformatics software for which no web interface is available. In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics (BED, FASTA, FASTQ, GFF/GTF, SAM/BAM, VCF). 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinux
  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    24 - 28 April 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to customise their environment and automate many parts of the bioinformatics workflow. This course will introduce the Linux command line environment from scratch and teach students how to make the most of its tools to achieve a high level of productivity when working with biological data. 2017-04-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-04-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows

    Elixir node event
    Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-manipulation-and-visualisation-with-python One of the strengths of the Python language is the availability of mature, high-quality libraries for working with scientific data. Integration between the most popular libraries has lead to the concept of a "scientific Python stack": a collection of packages which are designed to work well together. In this workshop we will see how to leverage these libraries to efficiently work with and visualise large volumes of data. 2018-04-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-04-13 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython

Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies.
