  • Metagenomics Data Analysis Workshop @ CSC

    Metagenomics Data Analysis Workshop @ CSC Description Metagenomics investigates the composition and function of microbial communities in different environments based on direct isolation of genetic material. It has been accelerated by the advances in high-throughput sequencing technologies, and the increasing data sizes require efficient analysis methods and advanced computing approaches. This international workshop covers metagenomics analysis from quality control, filtering and assembly to taxonomic classification, functional assignment and comparative metagenomics. In addition to covering the analysis of whole genome shotgun sequencing data, the workshop has also an optional day on community analysis of amplicon sequencing data. Finally, international databases and standards for storing the data are introduced. The workshop consists of lectures and hands-on exercises. User-friendly analysis platforms META-pipe and Chipster are used in the exercises, so no programming skills are required, and the workshop is thus suitable for everybody. META-pipe has been developed by ELIXIR-Norway, and it offers tools for pre-processing (Prinseq, FastQC), assembly (MetaRay/Ray, Mira), taxonomic classification (LC-classifier), gene prediction (Glimmer/MGA), functional analysis (Blast, Priam, InterProScan) and visualization (Metarep). META-pipe analysis jobs use a Spark cluster in the cloud for computation. Chipster offers over 360 analysis tools for different kinds of high-thoughput data. For community analysis of amplicon sequencing data it has tools for pre-processing (Prinseq, Trimmomatic, FastQC, Mothur), taxonomic classification (Mothur), and statistical analysis for marker gene studies (R packages vegan, rich, biodiversityR, pegas and labdsv).  The workshop is organized in collaboration with the ELIXIR EXCELERATE project. Lecturers Nils Willassen (ELIXIR-Norway) Espen Robertsen (ELIXIR-Norway) Erik Hjerde (ELIXIR-Norway) Aleksandr Agafonov (ELIXIR-Norway) Anu Mikkonen (University of Jyväskylä) Jenni Hultman (University of Helsinki) Petri Auvinen (University of Helsinki) Jarno Tuimala (RS training) Maria Lehtivaara (CSC) Kimmo Mattila (CSC) Eija Korpelainen (CSC) Program Please note that there might be still small changes to the schedule. Day 1, Monday 3.4.2017: OPTIONAL MODULE - Community analysis of amplicon sequencing data 9:00-10:45 LECTURES Who's there? Community analysis by amplicon sequencing (Anu Mikkonen) Short demo: Using QIIME in parallel fashion in HPC environments (Kimmo Mattila) 10:45-11:00 Coffee break 11:00-12:30 HANDS-ON SESSION: Using the Chipster software to analyze 16S rRNA data (Eija Korpelainen, Maria Lehtivaara, Anu Mikkonen) Introduction to Chipster Data preprocessing with Mothur-based tools and FastQC 12:30-13:30 Lunch 13:30-16:30 HANDS-ON SESSION: Using Chipster continues (Eija Korpelainen, Maria Lehtivaara, Anu Mikkonen and Jarno Tuimala) // coffee break included Data preprocessing with Mothur-based tools Taxonomic classification with Mothur-based tools Statistical analysis of marker gene data: Comparing diversity and abundance between groups Visualization Day 2, Tuesday 4.4.2017: Sample preparation, sequencing, quality control, filtering and assembly 9:00-12:30 LECTURES 9:00-10:15 Selecting and preparing samples for metaomics (Anu Mikkonen) Your samples are only as good as your sample preparation routines are, and your results are only as valid as your experimental design is. This talk will discuss, showing plenty of real-life examples, all the things that can go wrong before you even send your DNA samples out for the sequencing. The talk includes lots of practical recommendations on what to do before, or sometimes instead of, metagenomics analysis. 10:15-10:45 Sequencing technologies for metagenomics (Petri Auvinen) 10:45-11:00 Coffee break 11:00-11:30 Metagenomics analysis – an overview (Nils Willassen) 11:30-12:00 META-pipe analysis platform overview (Espen Robertsen, Erik Hjerde) 12:00-12:30 Metagenomics in the cloud (Aleksandr Agafonov) 12:30-13:15 Lunch 13:15-16:30 HANDS-ON EXERCISES: Using the META-pipe platform (Nils Willassen, Espen Robertsen, Erik Hjerde) / / coffee break included Quality control and filtering Assembly Validation Day 3, Wednesday 5.4.2017: Taxonomic and functional analysis 9:00-11:30 LECTURES 9:00-9:30 Taxonomic classification (Nils Willassen) 9:30-10:00 Functional assignment (Espen Robertsen) 10:00-10:15 Coffee break 10:15-10:45 New data resources for marine metagenomics (Nils Willassen) 10:45-11:15 The metagenomics data life-cycle: standards and best practice (TBD) 11:15-12:00 HANDS-ON EXERCISES: Using the META-pipe platform (Nils Willassen, Espen Robertsen, Erik Hjerde) Introduction, taxonomic classification 12:00-13:00 Lunch 13:00-16:30 HANDS-ON EXERCISES: Using the META-pipe platform continued (Nils Willassen, Espen Robertsen, Erik Hjerde) / / coffee break included Taxonomic classification continued Functional assignment Day 4, Thursday 6.4.2017: Comparative metagenomics and other analysis 9:00-12:00 HANDS-ON EXERCISES: Using the META-pipe platform continued (Nils Willassen, Espen Robertsen, Erik Hjerde) / / coffee break included Visualization of data Comparative metagenomics 12:00-13:00 Lunch 13:00-14:30 LECTURES AND WRAP-UP 13:00-13:35 Arctic metagenomes as a scaffold for understanding metatranscriptomic data (Jenni Hultman) 13:35-14:00 Genome assembly from metagenomic reads (Jenni Hultman) 14:00-14:30 Feedback and wrap up   Language:  EnglishPrice:          Free of charge 2017-04-03 06:00:00 UTC 2017-04-06 14:00:00 UTC ELIXIR EXCELERATE project and PRACE CSC Finland Oy, Espoo, Finland CSC Finland Oy Espoo Finland Metagenomics CSC [] Anyone workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest EXCELERATEMarine Metagenomics

    14 - 15 February 2019

    Prague 6, Czechia

    DATA CARPENTRY WORKSHOP This event is an example-driven two-day workshop on basic computing skills. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring their own laptop to work on. This should be a "real" laptop - not a Chromebook, tablet, etc. You should also be sure to have admin privileges on this computer. 2019-02-14 09:00:00 UTC 2019-02-15 17:00:00 UTC Elixir CZ, UCT Prague, Data Carpentry Technická 1903/3, 3, Technická, Prague 6, Czechia Technická 1903/3, 3, Technická Prague 6 Hlavní město Praha Czechia 16628 Genomics Data management [] spiwokv(you know what) [] PhD studentspost-docs 30 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
