  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    24 - 28 April 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to customise their environment and automate many parts of the bioinformatics workflow. This course will introduce the Linux command line environment from scratch and teach students how to make the most of its tools to achieve a high level of productivity when working with biological data. 2017-04-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-04-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
  • GATK Best Practices for Variant Discovery

    17 - 19 July 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    GATK Best Practices for Variant Discovery https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/gatk-best-practices-for-variant-discovery This workshop will focus on the core steps involved in calling variants with the Broad’s Genome Analysis Toolkit, using the Best Practices developed by the GATK team. You will learn why each step is essential to the variant discovery process, what are the operations performed on the data at each step, and how to use the GATK tools to get the most accurate and reliable results out of your dataset. In the course of this workshop, we highlight key functionalities such as the GVCF workflow for joint variant discovery in cohorts, RNAseq-specific processing, and somatic variant discovery using MuTect2. We also preview capabilities of the upcoming GATK version 4, including a new workflow for CNV discovery, and we demonstrate the use of pipelining tools to assemble and execute GATK workflows. 2017-07-17 09:00:00 UTC 2017-07-19 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 Bioinformatics Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Variant discoveryGenomicsBioinformatics
