  • 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.

  • Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020

    19 - 23 October 2020

    Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/computing-skills-for-reproducible-research-software-carpentry-course-2020 Educators: Renato Alves (HD-HuB) Date: 19-10-2020 - 23-10-2020 09:00-18:00 Location: Online 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).
