    Combining Workflows, Tools and Data Management - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/combining-workflows-tools-and-data-management-gcb-2019 Educators: Björn Grüning (RBC), Wolfgang Müller (de.NBI-SysBio) Date: 16.09.2019 Location: Marsilius-Arkaden Turm West, Room K13 Im Neuenheimer Feld **6.130.3** 69120 Heidelberg Germany Contents: There is a huge call towards FAIR data. However, what is *FAIR*? Many of us know how that FAIR means Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable. However the questions "How do I achieve FAIR?" and "How FAIR is FAIR enough?" are still open to debate. A completely different discussion is: How do I approach making my data FAIR? Making data FAIR can be tedious, manual work. Within this workshop we will demonstrate another approach, i.e. using the workflow system Galaxy, as well as Jupyter Notebooks to extract, enrich, process, and finally upload data into the FAIRDOMHub. This is built around the example use case of building an age estimator for humans from RNA data. On the way, we will give reference to the software and services we provide and the type of advice that we can give.

  • Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019

    16 September 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/getting-started-with-the-de-nbi-cloud-gcb-2019 Educators: Alexander Sczyrba, Peter Belmann, Sebastian Jünemann, Jan Krüger, Alex Walender (BiGi) Location: Heidelberg GCB Date: 16th September Content: The need for high-throughput data analysis has grown tremendously since the introduction of next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. The massive amount of data produced creates a new class of resource barriers to be overcome including limited bandwidth, storage volume and compute power. Small research labs can hardly cope with the data generated. A solution to the mere resource problem are cloud computing environments as virtually unlimited and flexible resources. The de.NBI Cloud is a full academic cloud federation, providing compute and storage re-sources free of charge for academic users. It provides a powerful IT infrastructure in combination with flexible bioinformatics workflows and analysis tools to the life science community in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud offers reliable IT security concepts and user access rules to en-sure secure data access and storage. It closes the gap of missing computational resources for life science researchers in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud project started in 2016 as collaboration between the universities of Bielefeld, Freiburg, Gießen, Heidelberg and Tübingen. The close cooperation with the ELIXIR cloud ensures the connectivity and sustainability in the international context. The de.NBI Cloud operates the major service levels: • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) suited for experienced power users that want full control over the compute environment; plain access to virtualized infrastructure • Platform as a Service (PaaS) suited for experienced users who utilize fully configured infrastructure for the deployment of custom workflows • Software as a Service (SaaS) suited for users without cloud experience who can use virtual machines (VMs) of pre-configured, state-of-the-art analysis tools and pipelines Cloud computing requires initial efforts and skills to port existing workflows to these new mod-els. The same holds true for emerging programming models. Cloud environments can be difficult to use by scientists with little system administration and programming skills. Challenges exist in managing cloud environments as there is a lack of tools which simplify accessing and using these environments and helping bootstrap users by providing basic software stacks. Keywords: OpenStack, Cloud Computing, virtual machines (VMs) Tools: OpenStack, BiBiGrid Prerequisites: The participants should bring their own laptop computers. The goal of the tutorial is to provide a fundamental introduction to the underlying OpenStack infrastructure. Target audience are bioinformaticians or experienced computational data analysts who would like to utilize scalable and flexible cloud resources for their research. Participants will learn how to setup a cloud project and work with virtual instances, and how to efficiently utilize cloud computing resources. We will also address networking and security issues, demonstrate how to deploy bioinformatics tools in the cloud, and how to set up a customized compute cluster in a cloud environment using BiBiGrid. All topics will be covered by short talks and practical hands-on sessions. 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-16 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
  • Proteomics and metabolomics with OpenMS and pyOpenMS - GCB2019

    16 September 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Proteomics and metabolomics with OpenMS and pyOpenMS - GCB2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/proteomics-and-metabolomics-with-openms-and-pyopenms Educators: Julianus Pfeuffer, Timo Sachsenberg Date: 16.09.2019 Location: GCB 2019. Heidelberg Contents: Computational mass spectrometry provides important tools and bioinformatic solutions for the analysis of proteomics data. Different methods for label-free quantification have been developed in recent years and were successfully applied in a wide range of studies. Targeted approaches for label-free quantification, like SWATH-MS, achieve deep proteome coverage over a large number of samples while non-targeted methods have shown great potential in unbiased discovery studies. This de.NBI training event introduces key concepts of both targeted SWATH-MS and non-targeted label-free analysis using workflow-based processing of real-life datasets. We will introduce several open-source software tools for proteomics, primarily focusing on OpenMS (http://www.OpenMS.org). In a hands-on session, we will demonstrate how to combine these tools into complex data analysis workflows including visualization of the results. Participants will have the opportunity to bring their own data and design custom analysis workflows together with instructors. For participants interested in developing their own algorithms and methods within the OpenMS framework, we provide a brief introduction to pyOpenMS – the python interface to the OpenMS development library. Training material and handouts will be prepared for both users that want to design proteomic workflows, as well as training material for algorithm and tool developers. Software Requirements: The participants should bring their own laptop computers. Installer versions of required software will be made available.

Intuitively, MOFA can be viewed as a versatile and statistically rigorous generalization of principal component analysis to multi-omics data. Given multiple ‘omics data types on overlapping sets of samples, MOFA infers a low-dimensional data representation in terms of (hidden) factors. These learnt factors represent the driving sources of variation across data modalities, thus facilitating the identification of molecular phenotypes and disease subgroups. In the first part of the tutorial I will give a 30-minute presentation to explain the model, its applications and limitations. The second part will consist on a hands-on activity where we will use two real-case data sets to show how MOFA can be used for integrative analysis. The first data set will be a large study of blood cancer patients (Dietrich, J Clin Invest. 2018), and the second will be a single-cell multi-omics data set (Angermueller, Nature Methods. 2016). The attendants are also encouraged to bring their own multi-omics data sets. Keywords: MOFA, R, Tools: MOFA, R, Prerequisites: A working knowledge of R is expected. The tutorial requires the installation of the following software: • R>=3.4 + Rstudio • Python>=2.7 • MOFA R package (+ dependencies) • MOFAdata R package (+ dependencies) • mofapy python package (+ dependencies) 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-16 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
  • Integrating computational meta-omics for microbiome research - GCB 2019

    Integrating computational meta-omics for microbiome research - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/integrating-computational-meta-omics-for-microbiome-research-gcb-2019 Educators: Dirk Benndorf (BiGi / MetaProtServ), Thilo Muth Date: 16.09.2019 Location: German Cancer Research Center Im Neuenheimer Feld 280 69120 Heidelberg Germany Contents: The field of microbiome research starts to investigate microbial functions in relation to dysbiosis (i.e. the unbalanced composition of the microbiome) being associated with health disorders and disease states. While many microbiome studies mainly rely on genome-based analyses, the integration of meta-omics data at the gene, transcript, protein and metabolite level is a holistic approach that extends the capabilities of microbiome studies. However, the potential of integrative meta-omics has not been fully exploited so far. An important reason is that bioinformatics methods are developed by different research communities. This limits the exchange of ideas and transfer of methods between researchers across different omics fields. In this workshop, we want to bring together bioinformaticians and researchers working in meta-omics and microbiome-focused disciplines. The meta-omics workshop aims to: (i) provide a platform of presenting new algorithms and software tools for integrative multi-omics approaches or related single omics technology (ii) stimulate discussions on challenges and open questions (iii) help exchanging ideas on bioinformatics methods (iv) identify what is currently lacking for integrative omics in microbiome research Abstract proposals for oral presentations (15 min talk + 5 min discussion) of tools, methods or open problems can be submitted until July 31, 2019 Draft schedule: • Abstract deadline for open speaker slots: July 31, 2019 • Response to applications for speaker slots: August 20, 2019 • Each talk is limited to 15 minutes and additional 5 minutes of discussion for each talk. Coffee break of 15 minutes after the first half of the workshop. Final plenary discussion (20 minutes). • Proposed time schedule: 13.30 – 16.30 Learning goals: In this workshop, we want to bring together bioinformaticians and researchers working in meta-omics and microbiome-focused disciplines. Prerequisites: Registration on GCB 2019. Abstract proposals for oral presentations (15 min talk + 5 min discussion) of tools, methods or open problems can be submitted until July 31, 2019 Keywords: Microbiome, Metaproteomics, MetaProteomeAnalyzer, Prophane Tools: MetaProteomeAnalyzer, Prophane Contact: Dr. Thilo Muth (Bioinformatics Unit, Robert Koch Institute, Berlin; mutht@rki.de) Dr. Dirk Benndorf (Bioprocess Engineering, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg; benndorf@mpi-magdeburg.mpg.de) 2019-09-16 13:00:00 UTC 2019-09-16 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
