    Practical Statistics for the Life Sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/practical-statistics-for-the-life-sciences This intermediate level course is one of our Foundations courses. It covers essential statistical concepts and methods for extracting insights from empirical data in the life sciences. The course positions applied statistics, starting from important aspects of experimental design and data exploration. We then move into statistical modeling and data analysis. We will focus on the link between linear regression and analysis of variance. Together, these methods contribute to the study of General Linear Models. The course also introduces the basics of non-parametric testing, and addresses categorical data analysis and logistic regression. The concepts and methods are exclusively introduced via case-studies in the life sciences. For every study we elaborate on a concrete research question and then provide a study design, which is followed by data exploration. Next, we will focus on how to model the data and elaborate on the link between model parameters and the subject matter research question. 2020-01-20 09:30:00 UTC 2020-01-24 18:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european project Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2780-156 Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] Life Science Researchers 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Statistics

Psomopoulos Date: 28/01/2020 - 30/01/2020 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab Contents: The missing step between data collection and research progress is a lack of training for researchers in crucial skills for effectively managing and analysing large amounts of data. This hands on workshop teaches researchers the fundamental data skills they need to conduct their work, and provides high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research. The domain-specific approach allows participants to tailor the data, content, and tools to reflect the specific data and analysis needs of different areas: - Data organisation and cleaning - Introduction to R - Data analysis and visualisation in R - Interacting with databases from R - Data analysis with applications to genomics Learning goals: You will learn... - how to organise data and some practices for more effective data handling - to effectively clean and format data and automatically track any changes - to use R to handle, filter, and summarise tabular data - to use the split-apply-combine concept for data analysis - to visualise the results of these analyses in R using the ggplot2 library - to apply all of the concepts in an exploratory analysis of a typical biological dataset Prerequisities: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers in the life sciences who would like to learn good practices in data management and analysis. The course is ideally suited to students without prior experience in computational research, but some familiarity with working with tabular data on a computer is welcome.

    Ready for BioData Management? - Advanced Data Management Plans https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/ready-for-biodata-management-advanced-data-management-plans Do you want to apply for a H2020 project and are struggling with the Data Management Plan (DMP)? "Ready for BioData Management? - Advanced Data Management Plans" is a one-day course where participants will be guided through the process of preparing a real data management plan (DMP) for a real research project, according to the H2020 DMP template. The course assumes participants have basic notions of DMPs. It will feature a lecture introducing the DMPOnline platform that the participants will be using, and another lecture overviewing the H2020 DMP template, but the majority of the course will be a hands-on session where participants prepare a DMP in the platform, in pairs. Participants are encouraged to bring their own research project or project plan, in the interest of producing a DMP that is relevant for them. Participants that do not bring one will be paired with those that do, or a project will otherwise be provided for them. 2020-01-29 09:30:00 UTC 2020-01-29 17:30:00 UTC INESC-ID / BioData.pt Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal Data management Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec info@biodata.pt [] Senior Researchers, Lab Managers, Postdocs and PhD Students with basic knowledge of DMPs.

The course consists of two parts: the first part, is an introduction to, and hands-on demonstration of, the DADA2 pipeline, which will be used to process a training dataset into a file that can be analyzed through the Biome-Shiny tool; the second part, employs the Biome-Shiny GUI to explore the obtained dataset's microbial community composition, as well as the alpha- and beta-diversity of the dataset, and download their results for later use. By the end of this course, participants should be able to apply the DADA2 algorithm to process their own sequenced reads, as well as employ Biome-Shiny as a GUI-based solution to explore their data and produce a final report. 2020-01-31 09:30:00 UTC 2020-01-31 17:30:00 UTC BioData.pt / Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal Metagenomics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec info@biodata.pt [] PhD students and post-docs who want to learn the basics of microbiome analysis in Bioinformatics, and have little knowledge of programming. workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []

    A tour of machine learning: classification https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification-67c1e87f-922a-469a-8aaa-f93f3b51b01b Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest. 2020-08-31 09:00:00 UTC 2020-09-01 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core iGent, Gent, Belgium iGent Gent Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []
