  • Statistics for Biologists in R

    9 - 17 January 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-73533e80-5de9-4b16-9dd9-814deb24115d 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.

  • Extracting biological information from gene lists

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Extracting biological information from gene lists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication. Course materials are available [here](https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/training.html#fagl).

This workshop offers a comprehensive practical introduction to the use of the Ensembl genome browser as well as essential background information. This course will focus on the vertebrate genomes in Ensembl, however much of what will be covered is also applicable to the non-vertebrates (plants, bacteria, fungi, metazoa and protists) in Ensembl Genomes. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Transcriptome Analysis for Non-Model Organisms

    15 - 17 April 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Transcriptome Analysis for Non-Model Organisms https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/transcriptome-analysis-for-non-model-organisms RNA-Seq technology has been transformative in our ability to explore gene content and gene expression in all realms of biology, and de novo transcriptome assembly has enabled opportunities to expand transcriptome analysis to non-model organisms. This course provides an overview of modern applications of transcriptome sequencing and popular tools, and algorithms, for exploring transcript reconstruction and expression analysis in a genome-free manner. Attendees will perform quality assessment and upstream analysis of both Illumina and long reads single molecule sequencing data; the derived transcriptomes will be compared, annotated and used as reference for quantifying transcript expression, leveraging on Bioconductor tools for differential expression analysis. Additional methods will be explored for characterising the assembled transcriptome and revealing biological findings. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • 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.

  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data

    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-4c7b80d7-237a-4b44-ba1b-d58016f87d47 Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq. The course website providing links to the course materials can be found [here](http://hemberg-lab.github.io/scRNA.seq.course/index.html).

During the two day course we will use a practical based approach to give you the confidence to start using Matlab in your own work. In particular we will show you how to write your own scripts and functions and how to use pre-written functions. We will also explore the many ways in which help is available to Matlab users. In addition we will cover basic computer programming in Matlab to enable you to write more efficient scripts.
