In this course, we give an introduction to the R environment and explain how it can be used to import, manipulate and analyse tabular data. After the course you should feel confident to start exploring your own dataset using the materials and references provided. The course website providing links to the course materials is [here](http://cambiotraining.github.io/r-intro/). Please note that although we will demonstrate how to perform statistical analysis in R, we will not cover the theory of statistical analysis in this course. Those seeking an in-depth explanation of how to perform and interpret statistical tests are advised to see the list of Related courses. Moreover, those with some programming experience in other languages (e.g. Python, Perl) might wish to attend the follow-on [Data Analysis and Visualisation in R](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-intR) course.

The deluge of data presents great opportunities, but also many challenges in managing, analysing and sharing data. Data Carpentry workshops are designed to teach basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data, using a combination of tools with a main focus in R. The workshop is aimed at researchers in the life sciences at all career stages and is designed for learners with little to no prior knowledge of programming, shell scripting, or command line tools.

  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

    Elixir node event
    Transcriptome Analysis for Non-Model Organisms https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/transcriptome-analysis-for-non-model-organisms RNA-Seq technology has been transformative in our ability to explore gene content and gene expression in all realms of biology, and de novo transcriptome assembly has enabled opportunities to expand transcriptome analysis to non-model organisms. This course provides an overview of modern applications of transcriptome sequencing and popular tools, and algorithms, for exploring transcript reconstruction and expression analysis in a genome-free manner. Attendees will perform quality assessment and upstream analysis of both Illumina and long reads single molecule sequencing data; the derived transcriptomes will be compared, annotated and used as reference for quantifying transcript expression, leveraging on Bioconductor tools for differential expression analysis. Additional methods will be explored for characterising the assembled transcriptome and revealing biological findings.

Do you want to know more about the sequence of your protein and its functions? Wondered whether a structure of your protein exists and how to explore it? Want to know more about the potential complexes and reaction pathways your protein of interest is involved in, giving you a better overview of its biological context? This three day workshop will introduce you to data resources and tools developed by EMBL-EBI that can help you in your protein studies. Each day will focus on a particular protein topic, with the aim of helping you get more from your data and also to explore publically-available data that can further support your research. 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

    2 - 3 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/chip-seq-and-atac-seq-analysis 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.

The content examines the data repositories, resources and tools available to explore and analyse large datasets. The principles of biological network and pathway analysis will be introduced and explained using relevant case studies. Participants will also have the opportunity to either learn how to access public repositories via programmatic methods or spend time analysing data using the approaches covered in the course. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 17:00:00 UTC European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Training Room 2, Cambridge, United Kingdom European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Training Room 2 Cambridge United Kingdom CB10 1SD [] Johanna Langrish [] [] [] [] []

  • Statistics for Biologists in R

    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-be8adef5-7ec0-4926-b07e-15135d1b8633 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.
