  • Software Carpentry

    22 - 23 January 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Software Carpentry https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-workshop-fd7b9f9b-9685-46b4-b8af-d5f173395c84 Our goal is to help scientists become more productive by teaching them basic computing skills like program design, version control, testing and task automation. In this two-day bootcamp, short tutorials will alternate with hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be encouraged both to help one another, and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. 2019-01-22 09:00:00 UTC 2019-01-23 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • de novo assembly

    11 - 14 February 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    de novo assembly https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/de-novo-assembly-2ec75e9e-6b89-4676-91d6-cd55df30e183 The course will provide an introduction to de novo assembly, with a hands on introduction followed by in-depth analysis of the key steps in the process. It covers several aspects such as the initial setup of a de novo genome sequencing project, quality control and preprocessing of datasets, generation and evaluation of first pass assemblies, assembly improvement and finishing. Practical exercises will be performed on small-scale real datasets, including short and long reads. We will present best practices and provide tips based on EI's faculty experience. The course will consist of a mixture of conceptual lectures, methodological lectures and hands on sessions, as well as group activities and discussions. The participants will gain first-hand experience and understanding on NGS assembly, working with the assistance of the faculty, troubleshooting small problems, and reviewing the results. This year, we will be including more in-depth content on working with mixed datasets comprising different sequencing technologies, plus hands sessions covering basic assembly algorithm parameterisation. 2019-02-11 09:00:00 UTC 2019-02-14 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] de-novo genome assembly

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Flow Cytometry https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/flow-cytometry Improve theoretical knowledge in flow cytometry to assist with planning and running your own experiment Learning Outcomes: Gain an understanding of how fluorochromes behave and considerations when planning a multicolour panel experiment Understand the importance of controls and how compensation works Understand how a cytometer works Gain confidence to diagnose problems and how to remedy them Develop knowledge of what CS&T and accudrop beads do Have broadened understanding of important considerations for single cell sorting Have the opportunity to discuss your experimental planning with experienced cytometrists Depending on applicants’ interests, there may be time to cover additional topics of common interest, for example cell sorting experiments, so please highlight these in your application. 2019-02-26 09:00:00 UTC 2019-02-26 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Introduction flow cytometry
  • Data Carpentry

    5 - 6 March 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Data Carpentry https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-carpentry-workshop-5b2d17cb-f74b-4613-be3a-9cf0e744f1ab Data Carpentry workshops are for any researcher who has data they want to analyse, and no prior computational experience is required. This hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills, and tools for working more effectively with data. We will cover data organisation in spreadsheets, data cleaning, SQL, the command line, and R for data analysis and visualisation using examples from biology. Participants should bring their laptops and plan to actively participate. By the end of the workshop, learners should be able to more effectively manage and analyse data and apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research. Data Carpentry's aim is to teach researchers basic concepts, skills, and tools for working with data so that they can get more done in less time, and with less pain. 2019-03-05 09:00:00 UTC 2019-03-06 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Signalling Networks: From Data to Modelling

    1 - 5 April 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Signalling Networks: From Data to Modelling https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/signalling-networks-from-data-to-modelling-505fd9f3-a493-46f7-8f3f-1c942e09c0ed Signalling pathways and networks are very important to regulate and control cellular processes, cell fate, and their malfunctions often lead to diseases, such as cancer or diabetes. This course provides an introductory overview about the most useful resources and tools to investigate signalling pathways and network, and also to introduce basic approaches to model signalling events. Hands-on trainings will give a wide overview on tools and concepts related to signalling networks. In this course you will learn how to use Cytoscape, where to find the most reliable signalling data, how to reconstruct, analyze and visualize a network. You will also learn how to develop your own models, mostly with logic modeling, what other modeling approaches exist, and how you can apply a model for your own research work. 2019-04-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-04-05 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • Metagenomics: Data Analysis and Interpretation

    16 - 19 September 2019

    Norwich, United Kingdom

    Metagenomics: Data Analysis and Interpretation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metagenomics-data-analysis-and-interpretation This course will provide an overview of the main aspects involved in metagenomics data analysis and discussion around the interpretation and actual examples of the impact and applications of metagenomics derived research. A substantial part of the course will be devoted to hands-on experience with bioinformatics resources and tools relevant in metagenomics data analysis. Participants will start with an overview of NGS technologies, a look at experimental approaches and emerging technologies, including a tour of Earlham Institute’s Genomic Pipelines laboratories. Then the remainder of the course will be spent in front of the computers learning how to produce metagenomic assemblies, and taking participants from data to publication-ready figures. 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-19 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, Norwich, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norwich Norfolk United Kingdom NR4 7UZ [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
