    Joint SIB / NBIS Autumn School Single Cell Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nbis-sib-collaborative-course-single-cell-transcriptomics #training #url: https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/2019-10_single-cell contact: education@nbis.se This course is organised by NBIS/SciLifeLab and the SIB PhD Training Network. Priority is given to their members, but is open to everyone. Overview Single-cell analysis of the various -omics makes possible to discover mechanisms, strains, expressions that would not be noticed when studying bulk cell populations. New developments lead more and more research groups to use this technology and this Autumn School will provide an overview of the various methods and fields of application through lectures and hands-on exercises. Generally, the afternoons will be dedicated to practical exercises where you will be able to apply the theoretical concepts learned during the morning session. Sometimes there will be a mix of both. One afternoon will be devoted to a social activity. See the preliminary program below for more details... Audience This course is addressed to PhD students, postdocs and scientists starting to work with single cell technologies and analysis. Learning objectives The first objective of this school is to provide participants with a broad knowledge of single cell analysis that would enable them to understand its application in general. This would be achieved via the multiple lectures provided by our lecturers throughout the week. The second objective is to enable participants to apply single cell analysis in their own research. This would be achieved by all the exercises that would follow the theoretical lectures. The third objective is networking with the lecturers and also the other participants that will most likely share similar interests. Prerequisites Knowledge / competencies Students should have intermediate to advanced R skills (able to read, understand and write R scripts), know how to use common R/Bioconductor packages, be familiar with the typical steps involved in a bulk RNA-seq (both experimental and data analysis parts). Technical Students should be able to bring their own laptop with R and RStudio installed. A list of required R-packages will be sent before the course and these should be installed prior to the course start.

    A tour of machine learning: classification https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification-b217275f-0a31-4994-b5c6-be3d999cc9f7 Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest. 2020-01-13 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-14 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

Use GenePattern and open source software to evaluate each step of a classical NGS variant workflow and feel the complexity of the task. Quickly compare the obtained results with gold standard public data The skills acquired during this session should allow participants understand what variant calling implies. Participants with experience in command line can do the workflow using command line tools. 2020-01-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-21 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
