    Bioinformatics of Genomic Medicine https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-of-genomic-medicine Genomic medicine is the practice of utilizing multi-omic (genomic, transcriptomic, epigenomic) data to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The CBW has developed a 2-day course that will explore various aspects of genomic medicine, covering and teaching popular tools and methods in the field. The course will start with topics that are important to the analysis of genetic disorders, including phenotyping and the annotation of genetic variants. Next, we will cover multi-omic approaches that can be used to identify homogenous clusters of patients, build patient trajectories to identify likely outcomes, and improve these outcomes through better selection of therapies. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Identify disease variants: Conduct basic exome analysis to identify disease-causing mutations Perform deep phenotyping of patients using the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) Conduct detailed variant annotation and prioritization Perform patient classification: Understand and select appropriate epigenomic datasets for patient classification Conduct data fusion to identify homogenous patient subgroups Identify potential therapies based on molecular profiles 2017-05-10 08:30:00 UTC 2017-05-11 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada Preclinical and clinical studies [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data

    25 - 26 May 2017

    Toronto, Canada

    Informatics on High-throughput Sequencing Data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/informatics-on-high-throughpuut-sequencing-data With the introduction of high-throughput sequencing platforms, it is becoming feasible to consider sequencing approaches to address many research projects. However, knowing how to manage and interpret the large volume of sequence data resulting from such technologies is less clear. The CBW has developed a popular 2-day course covering the bioinformatics tools available for managing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data, where the focus is on Illumina reads although the information is applicable to all sequencer reads. 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: Assess sequence quality Map sequence data onto a reference genome (required) Perform de novo assembly tasks Quantify sequence data Integrate biological context with sequence information 2017-05-25 08:30:00 UTC 2017-05-26 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada DNA-Seq [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []

    Toronto, Canada

    Introduction to R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-r-49424f47-7823-41b6-a83a-e2f3774ec109 R is rapidly becoming the most important scripting language for both experimental- and computational biologists. It is well designed, efficient, widely adopted and has a very large base of contributors who add new functionality for all modern aspects of data analysis and visualization. Moreover it is free and open source. However, R's great power and expressivity can at first be difficult to approach without guidance, especially for those who are new to programming. This workshop introduces the essential ideas and tools of R. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Meet the challenges of data handling; Break down problems into structured parts; Use R syntax, functions and packages; Understand best practices for scientific computational work. 2017-06-12 08:30:00 UTC 2017-06-12 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada [] [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • Exploratory Analysis of Biological Data using R

    Exploratory Analysis of Biological Data using R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/exploratory-analysis-of-biological-data-using-r-718f6e8a-2a6b-4ab5-8af1-d70ba923fd54 Before we can begin to apply rigorous statistical tools to research data, we often need to approach our data intuitively, and look for meaningful associations, surprising patterns, or irregularities, to formulate hypotheses. This is Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA). This workshop introduces the essential tools and strategies that are available for EDA through the free statistical workbench R. Steps covered in this workshop are broadly relevant for many areas of modern, quantitative biology such as flow cytometry, expression profile analysis, function prediction and more. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Use R and its analysis tools, read and modify code, and explore protocols that can be adapted for their own research tasks. Write R functions and analysis scripts. Plot and visualize data using the elementary built-in routines via their (sometimes bewildering) array of parameters to sophisticated, publication-ready presentations. 2017-06-13 08:30:00 UTC 2017-06-14 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []

  • Cloud Computing in Bioinformatics with Big Data

    5 - 6 July 2017

    Toronto, Canada

    Cloud Computing in Bioinformatics with Big Data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cloud-computing-in-bioinformatics-with-big-data Several big data genomics projects, including the ICGC, are deciding to host their data in the Cloud and to provide access to configurable virtual machines (VM) with which to compute on this data (thereby removing the need to purchase and maintain your own compute cluster). Similarly, many labs are moving to renting compute time from various cloud providers. Analysis of a single genome or a smaller selected subset differs from analysis of multiple genomes, particularly in the compute infrastructure required. To navigate through working in this new compute space, the CBW has developed a 2-day course providing an introduction to security and privacy issues related to working on human genome data and the processes necessary to access such data. After reviewing cloud computing infrastructure, the workshop will also provide a hands-on introduction to launching and configuring your own virtual machine (VM), accessing cloud-based data sets, and how to scale up the number of VMs to meet your analysis needs. Customizing VMs with your own tools and cloud-computing best practices will also be discussed. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Launch their own virtual machine (VM) Configure a VM with prepackaged tools Pull in data sets from Cloud repositories Follow best practices in data and workflow management Customize a VM with their own tools Scale up their VM to meet their analysis needs 2017-07-05 08:30:00 UTC 2017-07-06 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
  • Informatics for RNA-seq Analysis

    10 - 12 July 2017

    Toronto, Canada

    Informatics for RNA-seq Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/informatics-for-rna-seq-analysis-d573f303-974d-4819-ac09-3d7db5c256b8 High-throughput sequencing of RNA libraries (RNA-seq) has become increasingly common and largely supplanted gene microarrays for transcriptome profiling. When processed appropriately, RNA-seq data has the potential to provide a considerably more detailed view of the transcriptome. The CBW has developed a 3-day course providing an introduction to RNA-seq data analysis followed by integrated tutorials demonstrating the use of popular RNA-seq analysis packages. The tutorials are designed as self-contained units that include example data (Illumina paired-end RNA-seq data) and detailed instructions for installation of all required bioinformatics tools (HISAT, StringTie, etc.). De novo assembly of transcripts will be covered. Participants will gain practical experience and skills to be able to: Perform command-line Linux based analysis on the cloud Assess quality of RNA-seq data Align RNA-seq data to a reference genome Estimate known gene and transcript expression Perform differential expression analysis Discover novel isoforms Assemble RNA-seq data into transcripts Visualize and summarize the output of RNA-seq analyses in R 2017-07-10 08:30:00 UTC 2017-07-12 17:00:00 UTC bioinformatics.ca Toronto, Toronto, Canada Toronto Toronto Toronto Division Canada RNA-Seq alignment [] course_info@bioinformatics.ca [] [] 30 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest []
