  • Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform

    28 August 2019

    SURF office, Netherlands

    Elixir node event
    Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/getting-started-on-the-high-throughput-data-processing-platform Vastly increasing data volumes and data complexity imply that researchers require novel solutions to large scale cluster computing. This workshop aims to provide an introduction and hands-on experience with our new solution to this problem: “a new and versatile platform… The post Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences. 2019-08-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-28 00:00:00 UTC SURF office, Utrecht, Netherlands, SURF office, Netherlands SURF office, Utrecht, Netherlands SURF office Netherlands [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Good practice in high-throughput experiments

    30 September - 1 October 2019

    Zurich, Switzerland

    Elixir node event
    Good practice in high-throughput experiments https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/good-practice-in-high-throughput-experiments Overview This course offers an overview of good practice in high-throughput experiments (e.g. next-generation sequencing or compound screening). Particularly we focus on pitfalls in the design of projects (e.g. 2019-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-01 00:00:00 UTC SIB, Zurich, Switzerland SIB Zurich Switzerland [] training@sib.swiss [] Graduate studentsIndustryAcademicsPhDPhD students workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Software Carpentry Workshop

    16 - 18 October 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Software Carpentry Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-workshop-ab3af408-aa91-49ed-bab2-5db1f2e6d15d Educators: Malvika Sharan, Georg Zeller, Mike Smith, Thomas Schwarzl, Frank Thommen (HD-HuB), Holger Dinkel Date: 16-10-2019 - 18-10-2019 09:00-18:00 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab, EMBL Heidelberg Contents: Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This course provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing. Topics covered include: Introduction to Python scripting Introduction to the Unix shell and usage of cluster resources Version control with Git and Github Analysis pipeline management Scientific Python & working with biological data Literate programming with Jupyter notebooks 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: This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will be familiar with some command line/programmatic computer usage, will want to become more confident using these tools efficiently and reproducibly. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable using git).
