In some cases, the complexity of the pipeline forces the definition of process dependencies, especially when those processes can be launched asynchronously in High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Workflow managers such as Galaxy, Apache Taverna, PyCOMPSs, KNIME or Copernicus can be used to tackle this particular issue. 2016-10-20 09:00:00 UTC 2016-10-21 18:00:00 UTC Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Barcelona, Spain Barcelona Supercomputing Center Barcelona Spain 08034 [] Charlotte Pearton [] [] [] [] HDRUK
  • 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.

    Introduction to RAD-seq Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rad-seq-data-analysis-f4a75354-b605-4b30-ad75-60967b8a06f4 using next generation DNA sequencing. 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

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-d358d018-fabc-4a90-9b9c-cfd4475411f5 Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. 2016-12-12 00:00:00 UTC 2016-12-16 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 Software engineering Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsComputerprogrammingPython
  • 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

  • International Symposium: Rare diseases and big data, from research to clinical practise

    26 - 27 October 2017

    Barcelona, Spain

    International Symposium: Rare diseases and big data, from research to clinical practise https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-symposium-rare-diseases-and-big-data-from-research-to-clinical-practise A rare disease is any disease that affects a small percentage of the population, however a high percentage of population can be involved, in fact the World Health Organization (WHO) consider 7000 rare diseases, affecting 7% of the population. Three million people with rare disease are estimated in Spain. The principal challenges regarding rare diseases nowadays include: The difficulty in clinical and molecular diagnosis. A specific clinical multidisciplinary management due to heterogeneity of the diseases. Persistent comorbidities, physical and cognitive after cure of the disease. Effective and safe therapies that can cure the disease and delay comorbidities, improving long-term prognosis. The volume data on rare diseases has grown steadily in recent years, for this reason it needs a specific technology to handle them. This symposium will focus on diagnostic and therapeutic advances in relation to rare diseases and big data and will allow interaction between national and international experts on the subject. The proposed topics, as well as invited speakers, are relevant internationally and are aimed at improving the final prognosis and quality of life of patients with rare diseases through the technology offered by big data. One of the aims of the symposium is also creating a working group that will aim to find new drugs for rare diseases. The symposium will cover the state of the art in the clinical management of these diseases, as well as current research and future perspectives, including pathogenesis, epidemiology, therapeutic novelties, long-term prognosis with residual morbidity, quality of life and drug-economic aspects in the management of these diseases. Its main objective will be to transmit to society the advantages and opportunities offered by big data technology to advance the diagnosis and design of new drugs that benefit the patient. The access to the symposium will be free and there will also be present patients' associations, students, general population, research centers, nurses, and universities, making it more interactive and educational.

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-bcd1d1d1-24fc-47b6-b586-fc239d27888e Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. 2018-02-19 09:00:00 UTC 2018-02-23 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
  • Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python

    9 - 13 April 2018

    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
  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists-866df86c-a827-433d-9445-af7726bcf5a1 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. 2018-05-14 09:00:00 UTC 2018-05-18 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 Workflows Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
