Advanced Python For Biologists

Edinburgh, United KingdomAdvanced Python For Biologists https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/advanced-python-biologists-july-2016 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-3b007f2f-c334-478c-8b5b-cdbb7a7ce5ee 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 course 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. 2016-07-25 09:00:00 UTC 2016-05-29 00:00:00 UTC The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3FD Bioinformatics Software engineering Biology    workshops_and_courses

Edinburgh, United KingdomSASB 2016 http://sasb2016.fi.muni.cz https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/sasb-2016 SASB is a one day workshop that aims at promoting discussions and collaborations at the intersection inbetween the specific field of formal methods covering modelling languages and static analysis, and the following fields: (i) systems biology targetting a system-level understanding of biological systems, (ii) synthetic biology targetting functional modifications to naturally occurring systems, (iii) molecular programming and development of engineered biological and chemical systems. The workshop targets biological networks and executable models of biological systems and molecular devices, focusing on their formal specification and static analysis. A special emphasis is given to rule-based or process-algebraic languages that have the advantage of compact representation and provide a robust tool for systems and synthetic biology as well as a good base for molecular programming languages. Since the state space explodes combinatorially with number of possible states of biochemical substances, static analysis allows investigation of important features from a model without its exhaustive execution. In particular, it allows to pre-process molecular programs and optimise their implementation in DNA; ease characterization of the behaviors of a model; abstractions that prevent a full exploration of the potential concrete behaviors; model reductions, that decrease the dimension of a model while preserving important behaviors; characterization of dynamical properties with respect to the topology of the model; etc. All these features empower and strengthen applicability and efficiency of dynamical analysis and verification. 2016-09-07 00:00:00 UTC 2016-09-07 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh, United Kingdom Edinburgh United Kingdom Biology    workshops_and_courses  
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
