  • Statistics bootcamp using R

    25 - 28 February 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics bootcamp using R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-bootcamp-using-r This 4-days bootcamp provides an in depth look at statistical analyses using R. Day 1 aims to introduce R as a tool for statistics and graphics, with the main aim being to become comfortable with the R environment. As well as introducing core R language concepts, this course also provides the basics of using the Tidyverse for data maniupulation, and ggplot for plotting. It will focus on entering and manipulating data in R and producing simple graphs. Day 2-4 will focus on the statistical possibilities of R, covering from experimental design to analysis of quantitative and qualitative data. Ample time will be given to participants to practice different type of analysis and interact with the trainers to discuss their statistical problems. This event is organized in collaboration with the [Babraham Institutes's Bioinformatics Group](https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/index.html) and it is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

From small-scale microscopy experiments to time-lapse movies and high-throughput screens, automatic image analysis is more objective and quantitative and less tedious than visual inspection. This course will introduce users to the free open-source image analysis program [CellProfiler](http://cellprofiler.org/) and its companion data exploration program CellProfiler Analyst. We will show how CellProfiler can be used to analyse a variety of types of imaging experiments. We will also briefly discuss the basic principles of supervised machine learning with CellProfiler Analyst in order to score complex and subtle phenotypes.

It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard.

This course will focus on the vertebrate genomes in Ensembl, however much of what will be covered is also applicable to the non-vertebrates (plants, bacteria, fungi, metazoa and protists) in Ensembl Genomes. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

This workshop is aimed at researchers and developers interested in exploring Ensembl beyond the website. The workshop covers how to use the Ensembl [REST APIs](http://rest.ensembl.org/), including understanding the major endpoints and how to write scripts to call them. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Introduction to R for Biologists

    20 - 21 April 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to R for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-r-for-biologists-787ea3ae-ab3d-43f5-8957-cd2c4577cf5a R is one of the leading programming languages in Data Science. It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
