  • ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis

    2 - 3 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/chip-seq-and-atac-seq-analysis The primary aim of this course is to familiarise participants with the analysis of ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq data and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches. The course starts with an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments for the detection of genome-wide DNA binding sites of transcription factors and other proteins. We first show data quality control and basic analytical steps such as alignment, peak calling and motif analysis, followed by practical examples on how to work with biological replicates and fundamental quality metrics for ChIP-seq datasets. On the second day, we then focus on the analysis of differential binding, comparing between different samples. We will also give an introduction to ATAC-seq data analysis for the detection of regions of open chromatin. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Second ELIXIR-hosted RI-PATHS workshop

    9 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Second ELIXIR-hosted RI-PATHS workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/second-elixir-hosted-ri-paths-workshop   Towards new ways of documenting network effects in research, innovation and training During the first round of RI-PATHS workshops it became evident that a number of specific impact pathways and mechanisms are especially (albeit not necessarily exclusively) relevant for distributed RIs. Due to their specific set-up these tend to generate particularly strong effects through the networking of diverse knowledge sources and the development of new ways of knowledge diffusion with implications for research, innovation and training. In this area, some distributed RIs have piloted a range of relevant methods of data collection and analysis which can be relevant for various types of RIs, including non-distributed ones. Against this background, this workshop will present and further explore concrete methodologies to collect data on network effects in research, innovation and training, highlight the analytical limits of quantitative methods in this context and explore qualitative approaches which could be applied to tackle the current challenges. Agenda ELIXIR workshop_draft agenda Travel and accommodation Travelling to the workshop: The workshop will take place in the Garden Room, at The Red Lion Whittlesford, 42 Station Road East, Whittlesford Bridge, Cambridge CB22 4NL (UK).

  • Statistics for Biologists in R

    15 - 16 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-be8adef5-7ec0-4926-b07e-15135d1b8633 This course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. This event is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

Based at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and available publicly at https://cancer.sanger.ac.uk/cosmic, the latest release includes almost 6 million coding mutations across 1.4 million samples from over 26,000 papers. COSMIC captures the full spectrum of genomic data relating to somatic mutations, so in addition to coding mutations, gene fusions, non-coding mutations, copy-number variants, methylation and drug resistance mutations are included. This course will use the live COSMIC website and tools to show you how to access and explore this information, seeking to identify genetic causes and targets in all human cancers. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

With the increase in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic information there is a growing need to understand the metabolic phenotype that these genes and proteins ultimately control. The aim of this course is to provide an overview of metabolomics and its applications in life sciences, clinical and environmental settings. Over 2 days we will introduce different techniques used to extract metabolites and analyse samples to collect metabolomic data (such as HPLC or GC-based MS and NMR), present how to analyse such data, how to identify metabolites using online databases and how to map the metabolomic data to metabolic pathways. The course content will predominantly be based on analysing samples from model plant species such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the procedures are transferable to all other organisms, including clinical and environmental settings. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
