  • Core Statistics using Python (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    8 - 23 September 2021

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Core Statistics using Python (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/core-statistics-using-python-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE: The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching this course live online, with tutors available to help you throughout if have any questions. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching in our training room. This [award winning](https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/teaching-prizes/tel-prize/2020) virtually delivered course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the Python software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences. There are three core goals for this course: # Use Python confidently for statistics and data analysis # Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques # Know which tests are and are not appropriate Python is an open source programming language so all of the software we will use in the course is free. In this course, we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to linear models and power analyses. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using Python and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge [Raven](http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/docs/faq/raven/n5) account you will need to book or register your interest by linking [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/booking-form/?event-id=4001622&course-title=Core%20Statistics%20using%20Python).'' 2021-09-08 08:30:00 UTC 2021-09-23 12:00:00 UTC University of Cambridge Craik-Marshall Building, Cambridge, United Kingdom Craik-Marshall Building Cambridge United Kingdom CB2 3AR University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training [] Graduate studentsPostdocs and Staff members from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutions or individualsThis course is included as part of several DTP and MPhil programmesas well as other departmental training within the University of Cambridge (potentially under a different name) so participants who have attended statistics training elsewhere should check before applying. workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

  • Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    20 September 2021

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-working-with-unix-and-bash-online-live-training-74c82da1-01c4-47b1-b43a-d5c39d5fe6ec PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands. Building on the techniques learnt so far, we will then construct bash scripts combining the commands and structures already learnt into more complex, reusable tools. We will look at how we can apply these scripts to common problems faced in UNIX environments such as: communicating with remote servers; managing custom software installations and integrating these tools into our simple pipelines. This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    High Performance Computing: An Introduction (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/high-performance-computing-an-introduction-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Have you heard about High Performance Computing, but are not sure what it is or whether it is relevant for your work? Would you like to use a HPC, but are not sure where to start? Are you using your personal computer to run computationally demanding tasks, which take long and slow down your work? Do you need to use software that runs on Linux, but don't have access to a Linux computer? If any of these questions apply to you, then this course might be for you! Knowing how to work on a High Performance Computing system is an essential skill for applications such as bioinformatics, big-data analysis, image processing, machine learning, parallelising tasks, and other high-throughput applications. In this course we will cover the basics of High Performance Computing, what it is and how you can use it in practice. This is a hands-on workshop, which should be accessible to researchers from a range of backgrounds and offering several opportunities to practice the skills we learn along the way. As an optional session for those interested, we will also introduce the (free) HPC facilities available at Cambridge University (the course is not otherwise Cambridge-specific).

It will also benefit those who find themselves using their personal computers to run computationally demanding analysis/simulations and would like to learn how to adapt these to run on a HPC.Graduate studentsPostdocs and Staff members from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutions or individuals workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Experimental Design (Online) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/experimental-design-online-9bdf4bdf-ddbe-4574-bf7c-6fa46b49475d PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online, with tutors to assist you with instant and personalised feedback and to help you to run/execute the scripts which we will be using during the course. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Modern technologies are able to deliver an unprecedented amount of data rapidly. However, without due care and attention early in the experimental process, such data are meaningless if they cannot adequately answer the intended research question. This course is aimed at those planning high-throughput experiments and highlights the kinds of questions they should be asking themselves. The course consists of a lecture and small-group discussions led by a member of the Genomics or Bioinformatics Cores. This event is part of a series of training courses organized in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Core Facility at [CRUK Cambridge Institute](http://www.cruk.cam.ac.uk/).

Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named 'final_final_versionEDITED'? Have you ever struggled to import your spreadsheets into R? Would you be able to write a Data Management Plan as part of a grant proposal? As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications. Whether you create, receive or collect data, you will certainly need to organise it at some stage of your project. This workshop will provide an overview of some basic principles on how we can work with data more effectively. We will discuss the best practices for research data management and organisation so that our research is auditable and reproducible by ourselves, and others, in the future.
