Introduction to Python for Biologists
12 - 16 December 2016
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to Python for Biologists http://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-python-biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-d358d018-fabc-4a90-9b9c-cfd4475411f5 Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. 2016-12-12 00:00:00 UTC 2016-12-16 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Software engineering Bioinformatics    workshops_and_courses  BioinformaticsComputerprogrammingPython
Linux for Genomics

Edinburgh, United KingdomLinux for Genomics http://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/linux-genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-04835f08-3c91-4dc6-be5c-9ccb661c495e 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). 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics    workshops_and_courses  BioinformaticsLinux
Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists
24 - 28 April 2017
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists http://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-linux-and-workflows-biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists 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. 2017-04-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-04-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics    workshops_and_courses  BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
