    Joint SIB / NBIS Autumn School Single Cell Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nbis-sib-collaborative-course-single-cell-transcriptomics #training #url: https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/2019-10_single-cell contact: education@nbis.se This course is organised by NBIS/SciLifeLab and the SIB PhD Training Network. Priority is given to their members, but is open to everyone. Overview Single-cell analysis of the various -omics makes possible to discover mechanisms, strains, expressions that would not be noticed when studying bulk cell populations. New developments lead more and more research groups to use this technology and this Autumn School will provide an overview of the various methods and fields of application through lectures and hands-on exercises. Generally, the afternoons will be dedicated to practical exercises where you will be able to apply the theoretical concepts learned during the morning session. Sometimes there will be a mix of both. One afternoon will be devoted to a social activity. See the preliminary program below for more details... Audience This course is addressed to PhD students, postdocs and scientists starting to work with single cell technologies and analysis. Learning objectives The first objective of this school is to provide participants with a broad knowledge of single cell analysis that would enable them to understand its application in general. This would be achieved via the multiple lectures provided by our lecturers throughout the week. The second objective is to enable participants to apply single cell analysis in their own research. This would be achieved by all the exercises that would follow the theoretical lectures. The third objective is networking with the lecturers and also the other participants that will most likely share similar interests. Prerequisites Knowledge / competencies Students should have intermediate to advanced R skills (able to read, understand and write R scripts), know how to use common R/Bioconductor packages, be familiar with the typical steps involved in a bulk RNA-seq (both experimental and data analysis parts). Technical Students should be able to bring their own laptop with R and RStudio installed. A list of required R-packages will be sent before the course and these should be installed prior to the course start.

    Machine Learning in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/machine-learning-in-r Date Nov 6 - Nov 7 2019 Location EMBL Heidelberg Tutors and helpers - Dr. Malvika Sharan - Prof Bernd Bischl - Martin Binder - Giuseppe Casalicchio Affiliation: Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich Course Information This two-day course, on the implementation of Machine Learning in R, using mlr package will be delivered as practical sessions on programming and data analysis. The main goal of mlr is to provide a unified interface for machine learning tasks as classification, regression, cluster analysis and survival analysis in R. Sessions will be driven by many practical exercises and case studies. Before this workshop, participants are expected to review the official material introducing the principle of Machine Learning (see the prerequisite). Course Content This 2-day course will cover hands-on sessions using `mlr` and other relevant packages. Daily schedule - 09:30-12:30 3h morning, 90 min Theory + 90 min Practical - 12:30-13:30 1h Lunchbreak - 13:30-16:30 3h afternoon, 90 min Theory + 90 min Practical - 16:30-17:00 Time for general questions Day 1 Introduction to the concepts and Practical with mlr - Performance Evaluation and Resampling (Metrics, CV, ROC) - Introduction to Boosting Day 2 Introduction to the concepts and Practical with mlr - Tuning and Nested Cross-Validation - Regularization and Feature Selection Prerequisite The course is aimed at advanced R programmers, preferably with some knowledge of statistics and data modeling (See prerequisite materials from Day-1, 2, & 4). In this course, our learners will learn more about machine learning and its application and implementation through the hands-on sessions and use cases. Optional: Discussion-Based Session On The Principle of Machine Learning Anna Kreshuk (EMBL Group Leader) will lead a one-day discussion-based session on 14 October 2019 to address your questions on the prerequisite materials on the principle of Machine Learning.

  • de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques

    11 - 12 November 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/de-nbi-elixir-train-the-trainer-workshop-to-learn-teaching-techniques de.NBI & ELIXIR - Train the Trainer Workshop to Learn Teaching Techniques Heidelberg Educators: Malvika Sharan, Toby Hodges (HD-HuB), Elisabeth Zielonka Date: 11-11-2019 - 12-11-2019 09:30-17:00 Location: EMBL Heidelberg Room 202 Contents: The course is aimed at everyone who is interested in becoming a better teacher. The workshop is a mix of lectures and hands-on lessons where you practise giving a short lesson using approaches learned and implement some of the teaching techniques which we will discuss. This is training for teaching, not technical training; you do not need any particular technical background, and we will not be teaching that. This workshop is based on the constantly revised and updated curriculum. We will offer two parallel tracks (The Carpentries Track and ELIXIR Track), and you will be asked to choose one track that you would like to attend during this event. The Carpentries Track to become Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry and Library Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. ELIXIR Track is a non-programming module which will prepare you to organise or teach at the bioinformatics or wet-biology workshops. The Carpentries Track This module is aimed at those who want to become Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry instructors, run workshops and contribute to the Carpentry training materials. You don't currently have to be an instructor or a teacher to attend this workshop, but you do need to be willing and committed to becoming one and to improving your teaching techniques. Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. This hands-on two-day workshop covers the basics of educational psychology and instructional design and looks at how to use these ideas in both intensive workshops and regular classes. Please note that after this course is over, you will be asked to do three short follow-up exercises online in order to finish qualifying as an instructor: the details are available athttps://carpentries.github.io/instructor-training/checkout/. If you have any questions about the workshop, the reading material, or anything else, please get in touch. ELIXIR (non-programming) Track ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by publicly funded research. It coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access services that are vital for their research. In this module the trainer will deliver the ELIXIR curriculum aimed at the instructors interested in teaching workshops on the topics related to bioinformatics or wet-biology. 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: When possible, participants should bring a laptop that can be connected to the Internet to follow teaching materials and developing a shared note. A device for recording audio and video (mobile phones and laptops are OK) will also be useful as throughout the two days, we are going to record one another teaching in pairs or threes. It does not have to be high-quality, but it should be good enough that you can understand what someone is saying. All participants are required to abide by The Carpentries' Code of Conduct.
