Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020
19 - 23 October 2020Computing Skills for Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry Course 2020 https://www.denbi.de/training/789-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).

LIFS Course - ILS 2021 & LipidomicsForum 2021
5 October 2021
Regensburg, GermanyLIFS Course - ILS 2021 & LipidomicsForum 2021 https://www.denbi.de/training/1151-lifs-course-ils-2021-lipidomicsforum-2021 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/lifs-course-ils-2021-lipidomicsforum-2021 Educators: Jacobo Miranda Ackerman, Daniel Krause, Nils Hoffmann (de.NBI, BioInfra.Prot / LIFS) Date: October 5th, 2021, 9:00 – 12:00 (CEST) & 13:00 – 17:00 (CEST) Deadline for Workshop Registration: Until capacity is reached. Location: On-Site, Regensburg (if local COVID-19 rules allow, on-line otherwise) Contents: In the first part of the course, we will work through an example for targeted LC-MS lipidomics with LipidCreator and Skyline. In the second part of the course, we will apply PeakStrainer and LipidXplorer for filtering, identification and quantification of lipid signals from shotgun lipidomics. The course will consist of a short theory and background overview of the employed programs complemented by the application of the tools to provided data sets. The third part of this course will work through a typical use-case of downstream data processing of shotgun lipidomics data following MS acquisition with LipidXplorer. We will inspect, check and normalize the data as well as calculate absolute quantities using internal class-specific standards with lxPostman. In part four, we will then perform a qualitative comparison of the lipidomes using the LUX Score lipidome homology. Morning 09:00 – 09:45 Welcome and Introduction 10:00 – 10:30 Targeted Lipidomics with LipidCreator and Skyline 10:30 – 12:00 LipidCreator and Skyline Exercises Afternoon 13:00 – 14:30 Shotgun Lipidomics with LipidXplorer 14:30 – 15:30 Quantification of Shotgun Lipidomics data with lxPostman 15:30 – 17:00 Lipidome comparison with LUX Score Learning goals: Participants will be able to understand and explain the shotgun MS and targeted LC-MS workflows for lipidomics. They will learn the fundamentals of the software tools used and how to choose parameters for them. They will learn to understand and interpret the results of each step of the pipeline. Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of lipidomics, analytical workflows in lipidomics and basic familiarity with web-based and desktop applications. Please note that you may need to install software on your computer to fully participate in all exercises which may require the proper rights. The workshop will be a mix of small lecture segments and hands-on exercises. The trainers will be available for questions and assistance during the workshop. Keywords: Lipidomics, Shotgun, Targeted, LC-MS Tools: PeakStrainer and LipidXplorer, LipidCreator, Skyline, lxPostman, LUX Score Registration: Please select the “LIFS Training session I & II” in the Workshops section of the conference registration. Capacity is limited to 30 participants. 2G (vaccinated or fully recovered) - with either certificate of full vaccination or certificate of recovery / positive PCR test not older than six months.

Tools for Systems biology modeling and data exchange: COPASI, CellNetAnalyzer, SABIO-RK, FAIRDOMHub/SEEK 2022
9 - 11 August 2022
Heidelberg, GermanyTools for Systems biology modeling and data exchange: COPASI, CellNetAnalyzer, SABIO-RK, FAIRDOMHub/SEEK 2022 https://www.denbi.de/training/1409-tools-for-systems-biology-modeling-and-data-exchange-copasi-cellnetanalyzer-sabio-rk-fairdomhub-seek-2022 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tools-for-systems-biology-modeling-and-data-exchange-copasi-cellnetanalyzer-sabio-rk-fairdomhub-seek-2022 During this 3-day course, attendees will learn basic techniques for modeling of biochemical networks including data access and storage due to the FAIR principles. The first day introduces kinetic modeling techniques which will be illustrated and exercised with COPASI. The second day continues with principles of stoichiometric and constraint-based modeling coupled with hands on exercises using CellNetAnalyzer and a demonstration of CNApy. The third day SABIO-RK is used as a resource for kinetic data and FAIRDOM Hub/SEEK is introduced as a data and model management platform fitted to the needs of systems biologists. The hands on exercises throughout the three days will ensure that attendees become familiar with the software tools and with analyzing, creating, editing, importing, simulating and storing biochemical networks. 2022-08-09 09:00:00 UTC 2022-08-11 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI /ELIXIR-DE BioQUANT, Heidelberg, Germany BioQUANT Heidelberg Germany 69120 University of Heidelberg, BioQUANT Frank T.
