    Software Carpentry https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-e28d91b4-59e7-47d7-a7f0-54b3d09e0172 Our goal is to help scientists become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing and task automation. In this two-day bootcamp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. 2020-01-21 09:00:00 UTC 2020-01-22 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ Earlham Institute training@earlham.ac.uk [] PhD studentspost-docspostgrad workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served SoftwareCarpentrypythonUnix Shell

Psomopoulos Date: 28/01/2020 - 30/01/2020 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab Contents: The missing step between data collection and research progress is a lack of training for researchers in crucial skills for effectively managing and analysing large amounts of data. This hands on workshop teaches researchers the fundamental data skills they need to conduct their work, and provides high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research. The domain-specific approach allows participants to tailor the data, content, and tools to reflect the specific data and analysis needs of different areas: - Data organisation and cleaning - Introduction to R - Data analysis and visualisation in R - Interacting with databases from R - Data analysis with applications to genomics Learning goals: You will learn... - how to organise data and some practices for more effective data handling - to effectively clean and format data and automatically track any changes - to use R to handle, filter, and summarise tabular data - to use the split-apply-combine concept for data analysis - to visualise the results of these analyses in R using the ggplot2 library - to apply all of the concepts in an exploratory analysis of a typical biological dataset Prerequisities: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers in the life sciences who would like to learn good practices in data management and analysis. The course is ideally suited to students without prior experience in computational research, but some familiarity with working with tabular data on a computer is welcome.

  • Genome Annotation Workshop 2020

    13 May 2020

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Genome Annotation Workshop 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-annotation-workshop-2020 With the fast-moving pace of sequencing technology and the plethora of options available to you, it can be difficult to know which is the optimal platform for your biological question and therefore how to design your experiment for maximum return from your samples. Once you’ve got the data, how do you know if what you’ve got is good enough quality? We’ll take you through the latest developments in sequencing technology, identify common challenges in producing good RNA for sequencing, help you to understand what you can expect from your data and what you can do with it. 2020-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2020-05-13 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ Earlham Institute training@earlham.ac.uk [] Advanced PhD studentspost-docs [] first_come_first_served genome annotationNext Generation Sequencing technologies
