    An Introduction to R: Software For Statistical Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-r-software-for-statistical-analysis-5b7d1c9b-1e47-4b94-b5b4-c90e3fecc35d The aim of this course is to introduce participants to the basics of statistical analysis and the open source statistical software [R](https://www.r-project.org/), a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. Participants will actively use R throughout the course, during which they will be introduced to principles of statistical thinking and interpretation by example, exercises and discussion about a range of problems. The examples will be used to present a variety of statistical concepts and techniques, with no focus on any specific discipline. Important information: We have 12 configured laptops for use at the workshop. After these laptops have been allocated, participants will either need to share, or bring their own. These laptops will be allocated to the first individuals to express an interest in using them. When booking, please indicate under "Special requirements" if you wish to use one of the 12 laptops or bring your own. Participants bringing their own laptop will be given instructions on what software to install.

  • An introduction to metabolomics and its application in life-sciences

    An introduction to metabolomics and its application in life-sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-metabolomics-and-its-application-in-life-sciences-e1cd9f51-270e-469e-98c9-47469364c8a3 The goal of metabolomics is to identify and quantify the complete biochemical composition of a biological sample. With the increase in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic information there is a growing need to understand the metabolic phenotype that these genes and proteins ultimately control. The aim of this course is to provide an overview of metabolomics and its applications in life sciences, clinical and environmental settings. Over 2 days we will introduce different techniques used to extract metabolites and analyse samples to collect metabolomic data (such as HPLC or GC-based MS and NMR), present how to analyse such data, how to identify metabolites using online databases and how to map the metabolomic data to metabolic pathways. The course content will predominantly be based on analysing samples from model plant species such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the procedures are transferable to all other organisms, including clinical and environmental settings.

  • Mining gene-disease associations and drug target validation with Open Targets

    Mining gene-disease associations and drug target validation with Open Targets https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/mining-gene-disease-associations-and-drug-target-validation-with-open-targets [Open Targets](https://www.opentargets.org/) was founded by three global leading institutions in the fields of pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics and genomics, GSK, EMBL-EBI, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, and recently joined by Biogen, the world’s oldest independent biotechnology company. We combine large-scale genomic experiments with objective statistical and computational techniques to identify and validate the causal links between targets, pathways and diseases. Cross-cutting several therapeutic areas, we generate cellular models of disease through gene editing technologies or single cell analysis. In addition to clinical samples, iPS cells and cellular organoids are resourced to provide cellular phenotyping with high physiological relevance. Open Targets integrates comprehensive datasets from a myriad of renowned public databases, such as UniProt, ChEMBL, Ensembl, NHGRI-EBI GWAS, EuropePMC, COSMIC, GTEx, among others. The data and analytical processes are developed by a set of interlinking projects. The purpose of this half-day workshop is to acquaint participants with the Open Targets project and its Target Validation interface and introduce the tools for visualisation and interpretation of gene-disease associations and target validation based on a comprehensive platform with data from various publicly available databases. By the end of this half-day workshop, users will be able to carry out effective searches of data, use the web application to visualise genes, variants, ontology, pathways (and more) in the context of human disease and therapeutics.
