  • Software Carpentry Workshop

    16 - 18 October 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    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 & 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). Keywords: Programming; Command Line; Version Control; Bioinformatics; Data Analysis; Cluster Computing Tools: Python; Bash; Unix/Linux; Git; GitHub; SnakeMake; Biopython; Pandas; Numpy; SciPy; Matplotlib 2019-10-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-18 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI / ELIXIR Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques

    11 - 12 November 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/de-nbi-elixir-train-the-trainer-workshop-to-learn-teaching-techniques de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques Heidelberg Educators: Malvika Sharan, Toby Hodges (HD-HuB), Elisabeth Zielonka Date: 11-11-2019 - 12-11-2019 09:30-17:00 Location: EMBL Heidelberg Room 202 Contents: The course is aimed at everyone who is interested in becoming a better teacher. The workshop is a mix of lectures and hands-on lessons where you practise giving a short lesson using approaches learned and implement some of the teaching techniques which we will discuss. This is training for teaching, not technical training; you do not need any particular technical background, and we will not be teaching that. This workshop is based on the constantly revised and updated curriculum. We will offer two parallel tracks (The Carpentries Track and ELIXIR Track), and you will be asked to choose one track that you would like to attend during this event. The Carpentries Track to become Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry and Library Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. ELIXIR Track is a non-programming module which will prepare you to organise or teach at the bioinformatics or wet-biology workshops. The Carpentries Track This module is aimed at those who want to become Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. You don't currently have to be an instructor or a teacher to attend this workshop, but you do need to be willing and committed to becoming one and to improving your teaching techniques. Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on two-day workshop covers the basics of educational psychology and instructional design and looks at how to use these ideas in both intensive workshops and regular classes. Please note that after this course is over, you will be asked to do three short follow-up exercises online in order to finish qualifying as an instructor: the details are available athttps://carpentries.github.io/instructor-training/checkout/. If you have any questions about the workshop, the reading material, or anything else, please get in touch. ELIXIR (non-programming) Track ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by publicly funded research. It coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access services that are vital for their research. In this module the trainer will deliver the ELIXIR curriculum aimed at the instructors interested in teaching workshops on the topics related to bioinformatics or wet-biology. 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: When possible, participants should bring a laptop that can be connected to the Internet to follow teaching materials and developing a shared note. A device for recording audio and video (mobile phones and laptops are OK) will also be useful as throughout the two days, we are going to record one another teaching in pairs or threes. It does not have to be high-quality, but it should be good enough that you can understand what someone is saying. All participants are required to abide by The Carpentries' Code of Conduct.

    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 [] [] [] [] [] []
