    RNA-seq, 1 hp https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-1-hp-bb9f6240-741a-4ea8-aa48-deda7e1198b4 Course content This course will cover both theoretical and hands-on exposure to current topics in RNA-seq analysis. Lectures from experts in RNA-seq and biostatistics will cover a range of cutting-edge issues in RNA quality control, transcript assembly in model and non-model organisms, differential expression analysis and downstream analysis using other types of data. An extensive case study in the computer lab will familiarize you with concepts of mapping, quality control of your RNA-seq data, de novo assembly, assembly using a reference, differential expression analysis and downstream enrichment analysis. Topics covered will include: Gene and isoform detection using short RNA-seq reads Gene and isoform detection using long RNA-seq reads Gene and isoform detection combining RNA-seq data with other data sources Quality assessment of RNA-seq data Differential expression analysis using RNA-seq data on multiple cells Downstream analysis after identifying differentially expressed genes. 2017-03-13 09:00:00 UTC 2017-03-16 00:00:00 UTC [] jessica.lindvall@scilifelab.se [] [] [] [] []
  • R Programming Foundations for Life Scientists, 2 hp

    R Programming Foundations for Life Scientists, 2 hp https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/r-programming-foundations-for-life-scientists-2-hp-56fa30d4-110b-45eb-a88c-682e65f58c51 Course content The course is addressed to life scientists with little or moderate experience in programming but enthusiastic about learning how to use R to make their work smoother and easier. The course covers fundamental concepts of programming and software design focusing on programming in R. We will go through various aspects of R scripting with some more attention paid to the parts useful for life scientists. After introductory lectures on good programming practices, basic software design theory and a brief overview of R, we will delve into programming. We start by learning how to use R as a simple calculator, what are variable types, how to use data structures, how to implement repeating actions with and without loops, how to take actions based on certain condition. We gradually proceed to loading data, importing data from common file formats, we do some basic matrix algebra; learn how to perform basic statistical tests and how to visualize results. We will also put stress on giving you tools to access help and information on R-related challenges and issues, we will spend some time on learning how to install external packages, how to find bugs and address common installation issues. We also mention some more advanced topics and tell you more about BioConductor that is an invaluable tool for a computational biologist. You will also learn how to document your work and how to generate automatic reports. We try to illustrate all these concepts with some real-life examples and interesting lab tasks. The course will be given by experienced computational biologists from SciLifeLab and Uppsala University. Dr. Marcin Kierczak responsible for the content of the course is an experienced R user/coder, who has previously developed R packages and has experience in teaching programming and R to different audiences. 2017-03-27 09:00:00 UTC 2017-04-01 00:00:00 UTC [] jessica.lindvall@scilifelab.se [] [] [] [] []
