    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-f130f1e1-8d44-46e0-b02c-ed742ad66773 This course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. This event 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.

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to working with UNIX and bash https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-working-with-unix-and-bash Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands. Building on this foundation, the course will use a bioinformatics example to demonstrate how the skills learnt can be applied to connecting to external resources/servers, installing specialist tools and ultimately combining commands into scripts for automation and reproducibility. This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.

    Software Carpentry Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-workshop-ab3af408-aa91-49ed-bab2-5db1f2e6d15d Educators: Malvika Sharan, Georg Zeller, Mike Smith, Thomas Schwarzl, Frank Thommen (HD-HuB), Holger Dinkel Date: 16-10-2019 - 18-10-2019 09:00-18:00 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab, EMBL Heidelberg Contents: Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This course provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing. Topics covered include: Introduction to Python scripting Introduction to the Unix shell and usage of cluster resources Version control with Git and Github Analysis pipeline management Scientific Python &amp; working with biological data Literate programming with Jupyter notebooks Learning goals: This course aims to teach software writing skills and best practices to researchers in biology who wish to analyse data, and to introduce a toolset that can help them in their work. The goal is to enable them to be more productive and to make their science better and more reproducible. Prerequisites: This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will be familiar with some command line/programmatic computer usage, will want to become more confident using these tools efficiently and reproducibly. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable using git).

    Elixir node event
    Open Targets: Integrating genetics and genomics for disease biology and translational medicine https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/open-targets-integrating-genetics-and-genomics-for-disease-biology-and-translational-medicine Open Targets is a public-private partnership to use human genetics, genomic data and drug information for systematic identification and prioritisation of therapeutic targets. This module introduces the Open Targets partnership, its underlying projects and the bioinformatics resources for researchers studying associations of human genes with diseases. We offer interactive and hands-on experience with Open Targets Platform and Open Targets Genetics, open source tools of integrated biological and chemical data for drug target identification and prioritisation. We cover user cases relevant to the biomedical and pharmaceutical communities and can customise the course according to specific therapeutic areas. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis

    ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/chip-seq-and-atac-seq-analysis-b2a9ec58-3f94-497f-b6a6-d18041934b1f The primary aim of this course is to familiarise participants with the analysis of ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq data and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches. The course starts with an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments for the detection of genome-wide DNA binding sites of transcription factors and other proteins. We first show data quality control and basic analytical steps such as alignment, peak calling and motif analysis, followed by practical examples on how to work with biological replicates and fundamental quality metrics for ChIP-seq datasets. On the second day, we then focus on the analysis of differential binding, comparing between different samples. We will also give an introduction to ATAC-seq data analysis for the detection of regions of open chromatin. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
