  • 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 [] []

  • Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation

    6 - 7 April 2020

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Genomic Variant Interpretation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-genomic-variant-interpretation This course covers state-of-the-art and best-practice tools for the analysis of genomes. We describe, and give hands-on experience of, the entire analysis workflow from raw data generated by a sequencing machine to deriving variant calls (e.g. Single Nucleotide Variants) that are ready for downstream analysis, interpretation and prioritisation. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a prioritised, clinically-relevant list of DNA variants. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control, variant-calling and annotation. 2020-04-06 08:30:00 UTC 2020-04-07 16:00:00 UTC Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03, Sheffield, United Kingdom Bartolome House, Seminar Room EG03 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7ND [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners

    3 July 2020

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    RNA-seq Analysis for Beginners https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-analysis-for-beginners-13c9f173-2fdd-4ea6-9005-58aa798bf289 High-throughput RNA-sequencing is now the standard technique for quantifying transcript abundance in a biological sample of interest. In this course we will describe the processes that take place once you submit a library for RNA sequencing, and what data you should expect to receive from the Bioinformatics Core. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a list of genes that show statistically significant differences between your biological conditions of interest. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control and assessing differential expression. We will also showcase some web sites you can use for enrichment and pathways analysis. 2020-07-03 08:30:00 UTC 2020-07-03 16:00:00 UTC The Diamond, Workroom 1, Sheffield, United Kingdom The Diamond, Workroom 1 Sheffield United Kingdom S3 7RD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
