Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists
14 - 18 May 2018
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-linux-and-workflows-biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists-866df86c-a827-433d-9445-af7726bcf5a1 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. 2018-05-14 09:00:00 UTC 2018-05-18 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Workflows Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - email@example.com   workshops_and_courses  BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
Metagenomics and Metabarcoding
28 - 30 August 2019
Edinburgh, United KingdomMetagenomics and Metabarcoding https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-metagenomic-data-analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metagenomics-and-metabarcoding This course focuses on the computational methods used to analyse the wealth of data produced by shotgun metagenomics and metabarcoding (Amplicon targeted metagenomics) studies.This course will provide you the insights to the DNA metabarcoding analyses from preprocessing and quality control of the raw data to the construction of OTU/ASV tables, taxon assignment, diversity analysis and differential abundance analysis using QIIME2. Further, you will also learn about methods to generate the reference-based profile to generate microbial community features like taxonomic abundances or functional profile and how to identify the ones characterizing differences between two biological conditions.You will then be introduced to methods used for assembly from metagenomics samples. Attendees will use tools to assemble metagenome assembled genomes (MAGs) from short read and long read data. We will discuss the different approaches and tools available for these assemblies and the benefits and limitations of each options. 2019-08-28 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-30 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Metagenomics Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - firstname.lastname@example.org   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake
30 September - 1 October 2019
Edinburgh, United KingdomBioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/long-read-transcriptomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bioinformatics-workflows-with-snakemake Researchers needing to implement data analysis workflows face a number of common challenges, including the need to organise their tasks, make effective use of compute resources, handle unexpected errors in processing, and document and share their methods. The Snakemake workflow system provides effective solutions to these problems. By the end of the course, you will be confident in using Snakemake to tackle complex workflow problems and in your day-to-day research. 2019-09-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-01 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3FL Workflows Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - email@example.com   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
