  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    14 - 18 May 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists-866df86c-a827-433d-9445-af7726bcf5a1 Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to customise their environment and automate many parts of the bioinformatics workflow. This course will introduce the Linux command line environment from scratch and teach students how to make the most of its tools to achieve a high level of productivity when working with biological data. 2018-05-14 09:00:00 UTC 2018-05-18 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Workflows Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
  • Linux for Genomics

    1 October 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-4e98de3e-0102-46ab-9720-22f1122fd31d Genomic studies produce vast amounts of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Linux is particularly suited to working with such files, and is therefore arguably one of the most important tools in a bioinformatician’s toolkit. The Linux command-line enables one to view, filter and manipulate large text files that are difficult or impossible to handle with applications like Word or Excel, write pipelines to perform certain tasks, and run bioinformatics software for which no web interface is available. In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics (BED, FASTA, FASTQ, GFF/GTF, SAM/BAM, VCF). 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-01 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - donald.dunbar@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsLinux
  • Hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics

    26 - 30 November 2018

    Tromsø, Norway

    Elixir node event
    Hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hands-on-workshop-in-marine-metagenomics ELIXIR Norway in cooperation with ELIXIR Slovenia is pleased to announce the first Hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics. The aim of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the research field of metagenomics with focus on samples from the marine environment. The theoretical part for each subject will be introduced via lectures, followed by a practical Hands-on session. Place: The Arctic University of Norway, each day from 09.00 until 16.00 Target audience: Researcher and students above bachelor level Prerequisite: None, but study or research interest in metagenomics is expected **COURSE FEE: € 250,-** **Deadline for application: November 1, 2018** **[Register here](https://goo.gl/forms/Zw6lk3pAoMdVcykE3)** The maximum number of participants is 20. If the interest for the course is greater than this, we will select participants based on a geographical distribution and on how relevant the workshop will be to the participant. 2018-11-26 09:00:00 UTC 2018-11-30 16:00:00 UTC Arctic University of Norway, ELIXIR Norway, ELIXIR Slovenia Institutt for pedagogikk og lærerutdanning (Faculty of Humanities), Teorifagbygget-Hus 1, Tromsø, Norway Institutt for pedagogikk og lærerutdanning (Faculty of Humanities), Teorifagbygget-Hus 1 Tromsø Troms Norway 9019 Genomics Metagenomics Marine biology Arctic University of Norway [] ResearchersPhD studentsMaster students 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Marine MetagenomicseLearningEeLP
