  • Metagenomic Bioinformatics Analysis

    18 - 19 February 2020

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Metagenomic Bioinformatics Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metagenomic-bioinformatics-analysis Educators: Laura Carroll, Nicolai Karcher, Alessio Milanese, Jakob Wirbel, Georg Zeller (HD-HuB) Date: 18/02/2020 - 19/02/2020 09:00 - 17:00 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Contents: Shotgun metagenomic sequencing approaches are being increasingly employed to characterize the human microbiome. Such complex metagenomics data sets are a rich source for generating functional hypotheses about the roles that gut microbiota play in human health and disease. In this bioinformatics course, participants will be exposed to computational and statistical approaches for the analysis of shotgun metagenomic data. Through a combination of theory-centric lectures and hands-on, practical exercises, the course will cover topics such as taxonomic profiling (i.e., determining “who’s there” in a microbial community), functional analysis (i.e., broadly assessing the functional and metabolic potential of a microbial community, and also mining for specific gene families such as toxins), and comparative metagenomics (i.e., identifying taxa or microbial functions associated with a disease of interest). Learning goals: - Pre-processing and quality control of Illumina metagenomic data - Taxonomic profiling - Exploratory analyses and visualization methods for metagenomic data - Functional metagenomic profiling (using both general purpose databases and targeted approaches) - Comparative analysis of metagenomic data Prerequisites: - Familiarity with the Linux command line interface (e.g., running programs from the command line, creating and moving between directories, accessing a remote host via SSH) - Basic knowledge of the R programming language (e.g., loading data into R, manipulating data frames, creating basic plots) Keywords: Metagenomics 2020-02-18 09:00:00 UTC 2020-02-19 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • Introduction to Regular Expressions

    18 March 2020

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Introduction to Regular Expressions https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-regular-expressions Educators: Supriya Khedkar, Toby Hodges (HD-HuB) Date: 18/03/2020 09:30 - 16:00 Location: EMBL Heidelberg; Room 202 Contents: Do you often work with lots of data files on the computer, are you often trying to spot particular files or lines of text in them that are important for you? If so, then using regular expressions could save you a lot of time and frustration! Regular expressions (regex/REs) are a language designed to describe patterns of characters that you want to match in a body of text. For example, if you want to extract every Ensembl Gene ID in a GFF file, find tandem repeats in a large set of sequences, or extract every email address in a large document, regular expressions are the perfect tool. Regular expressions are incorporated into a wide range of software and programming languages, and the workshop will include examples of their use on the UNIX command line and in R and Python. Learning goals: This workshop will provide an introduction to REs and cover some of the simple but powerful ways that these can be used to find patterns in large volumes of text data. The workshop will be interactive and driven by examples to demonstrate how you might use regular expressions in your work. Prerequisites: Participants are required to bring their own laptop to the workshop, with a text editor suitable for programming (e.g. Atom, Sublime Text, VSCode, Notepad++) installed. Keywords: UNIX command line, R, Python Tools: UNIX command line, R, Python 2020-03-18 09:00:00 UTC 2020-03-18 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
