  • High-Throughput Biology: From Sequence to Networks

    20 - 26 March 2017

    Cold Spring Harbor, United States of America

    High-Throughput Biology: From Sequence to Networks https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/high-throughput-biology-from-sequence-to-networks With the introduction of next generation sequencing platforms, it is becoming feasible to consider sequencing approaches to address many research projects. Now more than ever, having knowledge of the available bioinformatic resources and the informatic skills to analyze such data is critical. The Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops, in collaboration with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, has developed a comprehensive 7-day course covering the key bioinformatics concepts and tools required to analyze DNA- and RNA-sequence reads using a reference genome. Participants will gain experience in cloud computing and data visualization tools, which will be applied throughout the course. Beginning with an understanding of the workflow involved to move from platform images to sequence generation, participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to evaluate sequence read quality, map reads to a reference and analyze sequence reads for variation and expression level. The workshop will conclude with analyzing and conducting pathway and network analysis on the resultant ‘gene’ list. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data (e.g. Illumina paired-end data) and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools. 2017-03-20 09:00:00 UTC 2017-03-26 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Cold Spring Harbor, Cold Spring Harbor, United States of America Cold Spring Harbor Cold Spring Harbor Suffolk County United States of America Molecular interactions, pathways and networks RNA-Seq alignment DNA-Seq [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • Epigenomic Data Analysis

    15 - 16 June 2017

    Montreal, Canada

    Epigenomic Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/epigenomic-data-analysis-814bc674-0a0a-42a1-9bd5-bbc43ae8b2b6 High-throughput sequencing of Chromatin-Immunoprecipitated libraries (ChIP-seq) and of bisulfite converted DNA (WGBS) have become increasingly common and have largely supplanted microarrays for chromatin and DNA methylation profiling. When processed appropriately, ChIP-seq data provides base-pair resolution representations of transcription factor DNA-binding events and nucleosome (histone) modifications genome-wide. Similarly, WGBS can provide a quantitative genome wide profile of cytosine methylation. The CBW has developed a 2-day course providing an introduction to histone ChIP-seq and WGBS data analysis followed by integrated tutorials demonstrating the use of open source ChIP-Seq and WGBS analysis packages. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools (FASTQC, BWA, MACS2, FindER, samtools, Picard, BisSNP). The course also includes an overview of integrative epigenomic tools that have been developed to explore ChIP-Seq and WGBS data together with other epigenomic datasets such as RNA-seq, DHS-seq and ATAC-seq. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Align ChIP-seq and WGBS sequence data to a reference genome (required) Identify narrow and broad peaks from ChIP-seq data Identify methylated levels from WGBS data Visualize and summarize the output of ChIP-Seq and WGBS analyses Explore integrative tools for epigenomic data sets 2017-06-15 08:30:00 UTC 2017-06-16 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Montreal, Montreal, Canada Montreal Montreal Montreal Canada ChIP-seq Epigenomics [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
