    An Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with PERL https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-solving-biological-problems-with-perl-0fc54a8b-c0da-46e0-9d1b-9e9a7f0219f5 This course is aimed at those new to programming and provides an introduction to programming using Perl. During this course you will learn the basics of the Perl programming language, including how to store data in Perl’s standard data structures such as arrays and hashes, and how to process data using loops, functions, and many of Perl’s built in operators. You will learn how to write and run your own Perl scripts and how to pass options and files to them. The course also covers sorting, regular expressions, references and multi-dimensional data structures. The course will be taught using the online [Learning Perl](http://sofiarobb.com/learning-perl-toc/) materials created by [Sofia Robb](http://stajich.bioinformatics.ucr.edu/members/sofia-robb) of the [University of California Riverside](http://www.ucr.edu/).

Special attention will be given to the newest functionalities in GATK3, including joint discovery in cohorts and RNAseq analysis. *The workshop will last two days, with a day and a half of lectures (including many opportunities for Q&A) and one half day of hands-on training. *On the first day, we will explain the rationale, theory and real-life applications of our Best Practices for Variant Discovery in high-throughput sequencing data. *On the second day, in the morning we will cover additional topics such as the differences between whole genome vs. exome analysis, sequence data QC metrics, and how to apply GATK to non-model organisms. In the afternoon, we will hold a hands-on session in which attendees will learn to interact with the GATK tools and apply them effectively. *The lecture-based component of the workshop is aimed at a mixed audience of people who are new to GATK seeking an introductory course into the tools, or who are already GATK users seeking to improve their understanding of and proficiency with the tools. The hands-on component is aimed mainly at beginners who have basic familiarity with the command line environment. *A draft agenda can be found [here](https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5BzNXp93Gp5eWtiaWtFdnJRcEU/view?usp=sharing). * This event is sponsored by [eLife](http://elifesciences.org/).

[Jalview](http://www.jalview.org) is free software for protein and nucleic acid sequence alignment generation, visualisation and analysis. It includes sophisticated editing options and provides a range of analysis tools to investigate the structure and function of macromolecules through a multiple window interface. For example, Jalview supports 8 popular methods for multiple sequence alignment, prediction of protein secondary structure by [JPred](http://www.compbio.dundee.ac.uk/jpred4) and disorder prediction by four methods. Jalview also has options to generate phylogenetic trees, and assess consensus and conservation across sequence families. Sequences, alignments and additional annotation can be accessed directly from public databases and journal-quality figures generated for publication. The course involves of a mixture of talks and hands-on exercises. Day 1 is an introduction to protein multiple sequence alignment editing and analysis with Jalview. Day 2 focuses on using Jalview for RNA sequence analysis, and also integrating cDNA and protein analysis and covers more advanced applications after lunch. Day 3 concentrates on protein secondary structure prediction with JPred version 4 as well as protein sub-family analysis to identify functionally important residues. There will be opportunities for attendees to get advice on analysis of their own sequence families.

This course starts with a brief introduction to the transition from capillary to high-throughput sequencing and discusses quality control issues, which are common among all NGS datasets. Next, we will present the alignment step and how it differs between the two analysis workflows. Finally, we focus on dataset specific downstream analysis, including peak calling and motif analysis for ChIP-seq and quantification of expression, transcriptome assembly and differential expression analysis for RNA-seq.

    Nowomics: Track the latest data and papers relevant to your research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nowomics-track-the-latest-data-and-papers-relevant-to-your-research *Nowomics - Access to the latest data and papers relevant to your research *Nowomics is a new website to help biologists stay up to date with the latest data and papers relevant to their research. Try it [here](http://nowomics.com). *Nowomics tracks new papers and many types of data in online repositories. You ‘follow’ the genes and processes you work on to see a Twitter-like news feed of new papers, annotation, interactions, curated comments and more. *For each gene you can also include information from orthologues and related genes directly in your news feed. *Data are currently included for human, mouse, rat, fly and plant. *This short workshop will show you how to use the Beta version of Nowomics to find the latest information for genes & keywords, how to set up your personalised news feed and configure email alerts. We’ll also demonstrate new portals to help researchers working on Drosophila or Arabidopsis find the latest and most popular papers.
