    Elixir node event
    Advanced Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-3fb71294-dcb9-4381-bdae-81701ef20595 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 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 workshop 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. 2018-07-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-07-13 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 Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython

  • Linux for Genomics

    1 October 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-4e98de3e-0102-46ab-9720-22f1122fd31d Genomic studies produce vast amounts of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Linux is particularly suited to working with such files, and is therefore arguably one of the most important tools in a bioinformatician’s toolkit. The Linux command-line enables one to view, filter and manipulate large text files that are difficult or impossible to handle with applications like Word or Excel, write pipelines to perform certain tasks, and run bioinformatics software for which no web interface is available. In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics (BED, FASTA, FASTQ, GFF/GTF, SAM/BAM, VCF). 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-01 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 3JN Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - donald.dunbar@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsLinux

The course is geared towards life scientists wanting to be able to understand and use basic statistical methods. It would also suit those already applying biostatistical methods but have never got a chance to reflect on and truly grasp the basic statistical concepts, such as the commonly misinterpreted p-value! Important date Application opens: now Application closes: 2019-03-31 Confirmation to accepted students: 2019-04-16 Responsible teachers: Olga Dethlefsen, Eva Freyhult If you do not receive information according to the above dates please contact olga.dethlefsen@nbis.se, eva.freyhult@nbis.se Course content ●Basic statistical theory and concepts incl. stochastic variables, density and distribution functions, central limit theorem, confidence intervals ●Hypothesis testing ●Resampling ●Linear and logistic regression methods ●Model selection and regularization ●Unsupervised learning, incl. clustering and dimension reduction methods Education In this course we focus on active learning approach. The course participants are expected to do some pre-course reading and exercises, corresponding up to 16h studying. The education consists of teaching blocks alternating between mini-lectures, group discussions, live coding sessions etc. A special focus is put on understanding basic concepts by solving problems with pen and paper. We believe in less-is-more principle, so be ready to say no to digital exhaustion to truly learn something with our modern “blackboard approach”. Literature ●An Introduction to Statistical Learning, Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani (.pdf freely available) ●Additional teachers’ choice Entry requirements ●No prior knowledge is assumed ●BYOL (bring your own laptop) with R and RStudio installed ●Prior experience using R and RStudio is welcome; pre-course exercises will be available for those new to R/RStudio Due to limited space the course can accommodate maximum of 25 participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.

    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 [] BioinformaticsGenomicsPython

    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. 2019-08-05 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-07 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 RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsRNA-seq
