    Elixir node event
    Data Manipulation and Visualisation with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-manipulation-and-visualisation-with-python One of the strengths of the Python language is the availability of mature, high-quality libraries for working with scientific data. Integration between the most popular libraries has lead to the concept of a "scientific Python stack": a collection of packages which are designed to work well together. In this workshop we will see how to leverage these libraries to efficiently work with and visualise large volumes of data. 2018-04-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-04-13 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 Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Bert Overduin - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsProgrammingPython

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 - bert.overduin@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows

    Metabolomics: Understanding Metabolism in the 21st Century https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolomics-understanding-metabolism-in-the-21st-century Metabolomics is an emerging field that aims to measure the complement of metabolites (the metabolome) in living organisms. The metabolome represents the downstream effect of an organism’s genome and its interaction with the environment. Metabolomics has a wide application area across the medical and biological sciences. The course provides an introduction to metabolomics, describes the tools and techniques we use to study the metabolome and explains why we want to study it. By the end of the course you will understand how metabolomics can revolutionise our understanding of metabolism. 2018-07-23 09:00:00 UTC 2018-08-17 00:00:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Birmingham United Kingdom B15 2TT [] [] [] [] [] []

    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-4e98de3e-0102-46ab-9720-22f1122fd31d Genomic studies produce vast amounts of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Linux is particularly suited to working with such files, and is therefore arguably one of the most important tools in a bioinformatician’s toolkit. The Linux command-line enables one to view, filter and manipulate large text files that are difficult or impossible to handle with applications like Word or Excel, write pipelines to perform certain tasks, and run bioinformatics software for which no web interface is available. In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics (BED, FASTA, FASTQ, GFF/GTF, SAM/BAM, VCF). 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-01 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 3JN Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - donald.dunbar@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsLinux

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. 2018-10-02 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-03 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 RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - donald.dunbar@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsRNA-seq

The course will take place in the computer classroom at the Institute of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics (IBMI), Faculty of Medicine, Vrazov trg 2, Ljubljana. **The limit of participants is 20**. This course will focus on introducing the Galaxy user interface and how it can be used for basic genomic analyses. Sessions will be intensive and hands-on, and taught by experienced instructors from the Galaxy Community. We will cover the basic features of Galaxy, including where to find tools, how to import and use your data, and an introduction to workflows. This session is recommended for anyone who has not used, or only rarely uses Galaxy. **Program topics:** Quick introduction to Galaxy UI (20.12. morning) From peaks to genes (20.12. morning) Reference-based RNA-seq - Quality control (20.12. afternoon) Reference-based RNA-seq - Sequencing (21.12. morning) Lecturers will be **Christophe Antoniewski** and **Olivier Inizan** from ELIXIR France. Course is organised by **ELIXIR Slovenia** in collaboration with **ELIXIR France**. ELIXIR is an European ESFRI priority research infrastructure for bioinformatics that provides databases, (software) tools, services and training (including training materials) for information, cloud storage and supercomputers in the area of life sciences. It coordinates, develops, integrates and sustains life science (bioinformatics) resources across Europe. **Prerequisites:** Wi-Fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Metabolomics for the Microbiologist https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-metabolomics-for-the-microbiologist This three-day course will introduce the attendees in how untargeted metabolomics can be applied to study microbial systems in academic and industrial research. The course will provide an overview of the metabolomics pipeline from experimental design to sample preparation and data acquisition to data analysis/interpretation. The course will be led by experts in the field of metabolomics and will include lectures, hands-on laboratory sessions in sample preparation and data acquisition and computer workshops focused on data processing and data analysis. 2019-01-30 09:00:00 UTC 2019-02-01 00:00:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, Birmingham, United Kingdom Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Birmingham United Kingdom B15 2TT [] [] [] [] [] []
