    Hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/hands-on-workshop-in-marine-metagenomics ELIXIR Norway in cooperation with ELIXIR Slovenia is pleased to announce the first Hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics. The aim of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the research field of metagenomics with focus on samples from the marine environment. The theoretical part for each subject will be introduced via lectures, followed by a practical Hands-on session. Place: The Arctic University of Norway, each day from 09.00 until 16.00 Target audience: Researcher and students above bachelor level Prerequisite: None, but study or research interest in metagenomics is expected **COURSE FEE: € 250,-** **Deadline for application: November 1, 2018** **[Register here](https://goo.gl/forms/Zw6lk3pAoMdVcykE3)** The maximum number of participants is 20. If the interest for the course is greater than this, we will select participants based on a geographical distribution and on how relevant the workshop will be to the participant. 2018-11-26 09:00:00 UTC 2018-11-30 16:00:00 UTC Arctic University of Norway, ELIXIR Norway, ELIXIR Slovenia Institutt for pedagogikk og lærerutdanning (Faculty of Humanities), Teorifagbygget-Hus 1, Tromsø, Norway Institutt for pedagogikk og lærerutdanning (Faculty of Humanities), Teorifagbygget-Hus 1 Tromsø Troms Norway 9019 Genomics Metagenomics Marine biology Arctic University of Norway [] ResearchersPhD studentsMaster students 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Marine MetagenomicseLearningEeLP
  • Population Genetics and Demographic History: model-based approaches

    13 - 17 May 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Population Genetics and Demographic History: model-based approaches https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/pgdh19 Genetic and genomic data are increasingly used by ecologists and evolutionary biologists in general. It has thus become important for many biologists with different levels of experience to produce and analyse genetic (and genomic) data. In this course we will take a practical approach to the analysis of genetic and genomic data, but we will also provide some of the theoretical background required to understand the outputs of the software used. This course will be organised so as to mix lectures where important notions are introduced with practicals where freely available software will be used. While this will not be the focus of the course, we will also introduce and discuss genealogical (coalescent-based) simulation methods and those based on forward-in-time simulations. Altogether this will allow to discuss the potentialities and limitations of the tools available to the community. In this five-day course we will introduce the main concepts that underlie many of the models that are frequently used in population genetics. We will focus on the importance of demographic history (e.g. effective sizes and migration patterns) in shaping genetic data. We will go through the basic notions that are central to population genetics, insisting particularly on the statistics used to measure genetic diversity and population differentiation. The course will also cover a short introduction to coalescent theory, Bayesian inference in population genetics and data simulation. We will also introduce methods that have been recently developed to analyse genomic data such as the PSMC method of Li and Durbin that reconstructs the demographic history of a species or population with the genome of a single individual. Most theory will be put into practice in practical sessions, analyzing real and/or simulated datasets. In these sessions, we will look at measures of genetic diversity and differentiation and use methods to infer demographic history. We will learn how to perform coalescent simulations of genetic/genomic data (using mainly Richard Hudson's ms program). We will also show how to simulate data for PSMC analyses. This will allow users to compare the PSMC obtained with real data to those obtained for the models they used. We will also look at how habitat fragmentation can be simulated using an in-house program. Some exercises will make use of R scripts (R being a freely available statistical program). Basic R knowledge is a pre-requisite but we will provide a short introduction to R. The R statistical package is a very powerful tool to analyse data outputs from many population genetics software, and can also be used to simulate genetic data under simple demographic scenarios. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 17:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Instituto Gulbenkian de CiênciaBiodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] Basic molecular population genetics and molecular ecology.

  • ELIXIR Norway: Hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop

    ELIXIR Norway: Hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-norway-hands-on-bioinformatics-nels-workshop We are pleased to announce the second hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop organised in Tromsø by [ELIXIR Norway](https://www.elixir-norway.org/). The topic is on how you can use the Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences - [NeLS](nels.bioinfo.no) to store and share data, and to run analyses via customisable analysis workflows in Galaxy. More specifically, we will go through how you can store data in NeLS and upload it directly into Galaxy. We will also construct and run a complete sequence analysis workflow for taxonomic profiling on a metagenomic sample. There are no requirements for programming skills or experience using the command line, as Galaxy provides a web interface for running analysis. 2019-11-26 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-26 15:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110), Tromsø, Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110) Tromsø Tromsø Norway 9019 Bioinformatics University of Tromsø ELIXIR Norway life scientistsdata managers 20 workshops_and_courses by_invitation bioinformaticsNeLSGalaxyEeLPeLearning
