  • Introduction to Regular Expressions

    18 March 2020

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Introduction to Regular Expressions https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-regular-expressions Educators: Supriya Khedkar, Toby Hodges (HD-HuB) Date: 18/03/2020 09:30 - 16:00 Location: EMBL Heidelberg; Room 202 Contents: Do you often work with lots of data files on the computer, are you often trying to spot particular files or lines of text in them that are important for you? If so, then using regular expressions could save you a lot of time and frustration! Regular expressions (regex/REs) are a language designed to describe patterns of characters that you want to match in a body of text. For example, if you want to extract every Ensembl Gene ID in a GFF file, find tandem repeats in a large set of sequences, or extract every email address in a large document, regular expressions are the perfect tool. Regular expressions are incorporated into a wide range of software and programming languages, and the workshop will include examples of their use on the UNIX command line and in R and Python. Learning goals: This workshop will provide an introduction to REs and cover some of the simple but powerful ways that these can be used to find patterns in large volumes of text data. The workshop will be interactive and driven by examples to demonstrate how you might use regular expressions in your work. Prerequisites: Participants are required to bring their own laptop to the workshop, with a text editor suitable for programming (e.g. Atom, Sublime Text, VSCode, Notepad++) installed. Keywords: UNIX command line, R, Python Tools: UNIX command line, R, Python 2020-03-18 09:00:00 UTC 2020-03-18 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Entry Level Bioinformatics

    30 March - 3 April 2020

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Entry Level Bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/entry-level-bioinformatics This is an entry level course in three parts, aimed at those with a reasonable biological background but no significant experience with bioinformatics. The course content is designed to show how, by going through guided exercises, a researcher in the bio-medical area can access sequence data and steer his/her analysis to efficiently extract results, checking how credible they are and reason about using them confidently, in a reproducible way. This course will also provide a soft introduction to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis. This part of the course aims at providing basic skills that are needed when one needs to process NGS data, using open source bioinformatics tools. Thirdly, the course will cover the broad theme of analytical automation, and how it enhances the capacity of researchers by widening the scope of their experiments, comparing results in a large scale and summarising the findings in simple but very reproducible ways. 2020-03-30 09:30:00 UTC 2020-04-03 18:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european project Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2780-156 Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] Researchers at any level, wishing to investigate how they might begin to exploit the ever expanding abundance of computing and data resources. 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served introduction to bioinformaticsNGSAutomationScripting
  • ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum

    28 April 2020

    London, United Kingdom

    ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-bioinformatics-industry-forum With the ELIXIR Bioinformatics Industry Forum we want to build a community for technical specialists to discuss visionary ideas, bottlenecks and solutions to some of the major challenges in the data driven life science sector. What unites all participants is the drive to move science forward through a collaborative effort.   With these events we will:  Give companies the chance to present technical advances in their field, and to discuss and share feedback on these from ELIXIR members. Provide a forum for knowledge exchange and collaboration in the pre-competitive space. Create networking opportunities with bioinformatics opinion leaders, academic experts in ELIXIR and other industry members. Provide a forum to articulate scientific and technical challenges with experts in the field and potentially develop innovative solutions for e.g. analytics, infrastructure and AI exploitation.   What can attendees expect: Attendees at this event will be immersed in a world of data-driven innovation, with a mix of high-level keynote presentations, roundtable sessions to discuss and interact with other participants, panel discussions addressing hot topics in the data driven life science sector and visionary talks on the latest developments in bioinformatics.    A dedicated session with five minute Flash Talks will give you the chance to introduce your work to a broad audience (see registration form to submit a Flash Talk).    Who should attend: Bioinformaticians, Developers, IT specialists, Data Scientist/Engineers and anyone interested in the data driven life sciences sector   2020-04-28 10:00:00 UTC 2020-04-28 10:00:00 UTC Wellcome Collection, London, United Kingdom Wellcome Collection London United Kingdom NW1 2BE [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
