    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.

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

  • Automated Workflow Composition in the Life Sciences

    9 - 13 March 2020

    Leiden, Netherlands

    Automated Workflow Composition in the Life Sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/automated-workflow-composition-in-the-life-sciences In the age of computational science, researchers in the life sciences – just as in other domains – regularly face the need of composing several individual software tools into pipelines or workflows that perform the specific data analysis processes that they need in their research. For over 20 years now, dedicated scientific workflow management systems have been supporting scientists in this task, and they continue to gain popularity. In fact, recent years have seen significant progress in the functional annotation of bioinformatics software tools, as well as their virtualization, containerization and assembly into workflows for automatically executing the processes. At least since the rise of the Semantic Web in the early 2000s, also the idea of semantics-based automated composition of workflows has been around to simplify the work with scientific workflows further and free life science researchers from having to deal with the technicalities of software composition. This would not only save valuable research time, but also reduce errors, allow benchmarking of data analysis pipelines and enable new scientific findings by discovering workflows that researchers would not have thought of themselves. However, despite its obvious potential and appeal, the need for optimizing data analysis workflows, and despite different research groups working on the topic, automated workflow composition has not yet arrived in the daily practice of life science researchers. The reasons for this are manifold. Some are more practical (for example the lack of automatic composition tools in the commonly used software frameworks), others are of more fundamental nature (such as questions on specification languages, composition algorithms, formal semantics and workflows representations). On one important aspect, namely the semantic annotation of tools on a large scale, the life science community has made significant progress in the last years: The EDAM ontology provides a controlled vocabulary of bioinformatics operations, data types and formats, and the bio.tools registry has become a large collection of bioinformatics tools that are semantically annotated with terms from the EDAM ontology. As demonstrated in a recent Bioinformatics publication (https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/article/35/4/656/5060940), this forms a solid basis for performing automated workflow composition in the life sciences domain. Nevertheless, it is still a long way to its use in daily scientific practice. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners who have been working on different aspects related to automated workflow composition in the life sciences. These include life science researchers, tool providers, infrastructure developers, ontologists, algorithmics researchers and many more. They do not normally come together as a group at the regular scientific events, so a Lorentz workshop devoted to this topic provides a unique opportunity to join forces and together significantly advance the field. 2020-03-09 09:00:00 UTC 2020-03-13 17:00:00 UTC Jon Ison, Anna-Lena Lamprecht, Magnus Palmblad and Veit Schwämmle Lorentz Center Oort, Leiden, Netherlands Lorentz Center Oort Leiden Netherlands 2333 Omics Workflows Leiden University reinards@lorentzcenter.nl ELIXIRLorentz CenterLUMC software developers, bioinformaticiansbiocurators 50 workshops_and_courses [] []
