  • Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python

    9 - 13 April 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    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

    Elixir node event
    Advanced Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-3fb71294-dcb9-4381-bdae-81701ef20595 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 people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The workshop will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. 2018-07-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-07-13 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

  • Linux for Genomics

    1 October 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-4e98de3e-0102-46ab-9720-22f1122fd31d 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). 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-01 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 Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - donald.dunbar@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsLinux

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. 2019-07-08 09:00:00 UTC 2019-07-12 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 Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsPython

Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-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 will be used. 2019-08-05 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-07 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 RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsRNA-seq
