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 - firstname.lastname@example.org   workshops_and_courses  BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows
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
Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis
17 - 19 February 2020
Edinburgh, United KingdomIntroduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis https://genomics.ed.ac.uk/services/introduction-rna-seq-data-analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-data-analysis-5989e86e-a408-481d-b3c7-5a1413b0e4a6 RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is quickly becoming the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs will be used. 2020-02-17 09:00:00 UTC 2020-02-19 17:00:00 UTC Kings Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom Kings Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH25 9RG RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - firstname.lastname@example.org   workshops_and_courses  HDRUK
