Introduction to Python for Biologists
8 - 12 July 2019
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to Python for Biologists https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-python-biologists-0 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 - firstname.lastname@example.org   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake
30 September - 1 October 2019
Edinburgh, United KingdomBioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/long-read-transcriptomics 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 - email@example.com   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis
17 - 19 February 2020
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-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 - firstname.lastname@example.org   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
