  • Differential Gene Expression Analysis with R (microarray and NGS)

    25 May 2016

    Brisbane, Australia

    Differential Gene Expression Analysis with R (microarray and NGS) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/differential-gene-expression-analysis-with-r-microarray-and-ngs This hands-on workshop will introduce users of the R software environment to the specific skills and applications used in the analysis of microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Practical exercises will include quality control and normalisation of data for differential gene expression, and linking genomic information to external public datasets. Recommended participants Biologists and bioinformaticians wishing to use R for RNA expression analysis. Prior expertise with R and the command line interface is required, to a level equivalent of that provided by the QFAB workshop “Introduction to R”. What will I learn? During this course you will learn about: Pre-processing and quality control of microarray and RNA-Seq data The use of R packages for the identification of differentially-expressed genes from expression data Systems biology interpretation of gene lists using pathway analysis Integration of expression and genome data with Ensembl databases After this course you should be able to: Import Affymetrix CEL files to R as data objects Carry out standard QC tests on microarray and RNA-Seq datasets Use the limma-voom R package to produce lists of differentially expressed genes between pairs of samples Identify over-represented gene ontology categories in gene lists using the GOStats package 2016-05-25 09:00:00 UTC 2016-05-25 00:00:00 UTC University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia University of Queensland Brisbane Australia Sequencing Gene expression Data architecture, analysis and design [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ABRQFABR
  • RNA-Seq Analysis Using Galaxy

    26 - 27 May 2016

    Sydney, Australia

    RNA-Seq Analysis Using Galaxy https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-analysis-using-galaxy RNA-Seq Analysis Using Galaxy is a one-day, workshop that introduces the concepts of RNA-Seq analysis. This workshop provides hands-on experience with RNA-Seq data preparation, statistical testing for differential gene expression, identifying novel transcription features and generating graphical summaries of RNA-Seq data. The workshop will focus on the use of Galaxy, a platform that provides a simple and user-friendly interface to bioinformatics tools, and will also feature an introduction to the R environment used widely by bioinformaticians. 2016-05-26 09:00:00 UTC 2016-05-27 00:00:00 UTC Children’s Medical Research Institute Sydney, Australia Sydney Australia Biomedical science RNA-Seq Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BPAABRBioinformatics
  • 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.
