  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    8 - 12 July 2019

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-d98f6dfb-45c5-4377-bbe9-9e8d30ed086d 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. 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 [] HDRUK
  • Metagenomics and Metabarcoding

    28 - 30 August 2019

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Metagenomics and Metabarcoding https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metagenomics-and-metabarcoding This course focuses on the computational methods used to analyse the wealth of data produced by shotgun metagenomics and metabarcoding (Amplicon targeted metagenomics) studies.This course will provide you the insights to the DNA metabarcoding analyses from preprocessing and quality control of the raw data to the construction of OTU/ASV tables, taxon assignment, diversity analysis and differential abundance analysis using QIIME2. Further, you will also learn about methods to generate the reference-based profile to generate microbial community features like taxonomic abundances or functional profile and how to identify the ones characterizing differences between two biological conditions.You will then be introduced to methods used for assembly from metagenomics samples. Attendees will use tools to assemble metagenome assembled genomes (MAGs) from short read and long read data. We will discuss the different approaches and tools available for these assemblies and the benefits and limitations of each options. 2019-08-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-30 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 Metagenomics Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
  • Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake

    30 September - 1 October 2019

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-workflows-with-snakemake Researchers needing to implement data analysis workflows face a number of common challenges, including the need to organise their tasks, make effective use of compute resources, handle unexpected errors in processing, and document and share their methods. The Snakemake workflow system provides effective solutions to these problems. By the end of the course, you will be confident in using Snakemake to tackle complex workflow problems and in your day-to-day research. 2019-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-01 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 3FL Workflows Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
  • Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis

    17 - 19 February 2020

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-data-analysis-5989e86e-a408-481d-b3c7-5a1413b0e4a6 RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is quickly becoming the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. 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. 2020-02-17 09:00:00 UTC 2020-02-19 17:00:00 UTC Kings Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom Kings Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH25 9RG RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
  • Variant Analysis

    23 - 26 March 2021

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Variant Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/variant-analysis This course aims to provide an introduction to the principles of short variant discovery (both germline and somatic) from short read data. We will look at a complete workflow, from data QC to functional interpretation of variant calls. The practical sessions will focus on running the GATK pipeline from the Broad institute 2021-03-23 09:00:00 UTC 2021-03-26 15:00:00 UTC Online, Edinburgh, United Kingdom Online Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3FL Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
