  • Introduction to the Genomics Virtual Laboratory and Galaxy for life scientists

    7 June 2016

    University of Melbourne, Australia

    Introduction to the Genomics Virtual Laboratory and Galaxy for life scientists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-the-genomics-virtual-laboratory-and-galaxy-for-life-scientists Galaxy is an open source, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biomedical research. It allows users without programming experience to easily specify parameters and run individual tools as well as larger workflows. It also captures run information so that any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis. Finally, it allows users to share and publish analyses via the web. This beginners workshop will introduce Galaxy's interface, tool use, histories, and workflows and get new users of the Genomics Virtual Laboratory up and running. 2016-06-07 09:00:00 UTC 2016-06-07 00:00:00 UTC VLSCI - University of Melbourne Lab-14, VLSCI, University of Melbourne, Australia Lab-14, VLSCI University of Melbourne Australia Bioinformatics Computational biology Genomics Computer science [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ABRVLSCIBioinformatics

  • 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.

    EMBL-ABR/ELIXIR workshop: Open Source and Software Development Best Practice https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embl-abr-elixir-workshop-open-source-and-software-development-best-practice This workshop will provide an interactive forum to discuss, review and gain an overview of Open Source and Software Development and will be based on content from the ELIXIR Software Development Best Practices group and aims to explore how to harmonise EMBL-ABR efforts in this area. Participants will reflect together on their own experiences and discuss what are the challenges, mechanisms and recognition systems are for those who get involved in open source. We would like to use this also as an opportunity to further define what would be the best practice model in terms of software development when it comes to activities under EMBL-ABR. Bioinformaticians involved with software development are the target audience. 2016-12-08 09:00:00 UTC 2016-12-08 00:00:00 UTC EMBl-ABR Lab-14, University of Melbourne, Australia Lab-14 University of Melbourne Australia Computational biology Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ABRlifescienceBioinformatics
  • EMBL-ABR Workshop: Open and Scalable Training

    8 December 2016

    University of Melbourne, Australia

    EMBL-ABR Workshop: Open and Scalable Training https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embl-abr-workshop-open-and-scalable-training This workshop will provide an overview of bioinformatics training at postgraduate level being offered across EMBL-ABR Nodes and what is happening in this area in other parts of the world. We will discuss what are the demands and offers when it comes to bioinformatics training around the globe, how this differs or not from the specific case of Australia, how training is reaching trainees, and whether or not it can scales up. In particular we will look at principles of open software and open data as basic concepts that could also be applied to training and contribute to its scalability. The target audiences for this workshop are trainers, organisers and general faculty involved in postgraduate courses. 2016-12-08 09:00:00 UTC 2016-12-08 00:00:00 UTC VLSCI - University of Melbourne Lab-14, University of Melbourne, Australia Lab-14 University of Melbourne Australia Computational biology Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Bioinformatics
