  • Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT)

    30 November 2020 - 31 January 2021

    Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-comparative-genomics-using-artemis-comparison-tool-act-3e9f10a2-bd0a-4af3-bc39-0d11856143e2 # Overview * **Duration**: 3 weeks, 5 hours per week * Free * Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 3 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? Disease outbreaks are still a big problem in our modern world. Comparison between two or more bacterial genomes can help improve understanding of the causes of pathogenicity and outbreaks of disease caused by bacteria. On this course you will learn how to use the free Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT). Developed at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, ACT will help you to visualise the comparison of genomes and analyse the results. ### Who is the course for? This course would benefit those interested in learning how to use tools to investigate and research bacterial genomes, and acquire bioinformatics skills to evaluate the role of microbial genes in disease. Learners will gain experience in comparative genomics, using the Artemis Comparison Tool to probe, visualise and compare genomes, and analyse the results. This course will be of interest to anyone interested in microbiology, including undergraduates, post-graduates, biomedical researchers, microbiologists, bioinformaticians, teachers, and healthcare professionals. The opportunity to gain experience in using the Artemis Comparison Tool, a computational tool designed for comparative genomics, will also be of interest to all those who have studied our pre-requisite courses: those with an interest in genomics and disease outbreaks, teachers and their 16-18-year-old science and computing students. Ideally, you will have completed [Bacterial Genomes: From DNA to Protein Function Using Bioinformatics][1] and [Bacterial Genomes: Accessing and Analysing Microbial Genome Data][2] before joining this course. [1]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-dna-protein-function-bioinformatics-online-sep19/ [2]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-accessing-analysing-microbial-genome-data-feb19/ # Programme ### What topics will you cover? Week 1 * Introduction to comparative genomics * Introduction to ACT Week 2 * Analyse available data * Generate your own comparison files * Make your own comparisons in ACT Week 3 * Identify pseudogenes in Mycobacterium leprae using ACT * Peer review project: Comparative genomics on two clinically relevant plasmids from Shigella ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * Explain the advantages of comparative genomics * Explore basic tools of ACT * Interpret results from already generated comparison files * Produce new comparisons and analyse results * Develop hypothesis based on results observation ### What software or tools do you need? This course will give you an opportunity to learn about and use Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT), a free tool used to display pairwise comparisons between two DNA sequences. To run this software effectively, you will require a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with 2GB RAM. The current version of ACT requires version 11 of Java to run successfully. Java 11 can be downloaded from [this link][1]. Older versions of ACT require Java 8 to run successfully. Java 8 can be downloaded from [this link][2].

    Ghent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    DDA and DIA proteomic analysis in Galaxy https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/label-free-proteomics-data-analysis-in-galaxy At the beginning of the course we will introduce you to the Galaxy platform and teach you how to perform basic tasks such as importing data, running tools, working with histories, creating workflows, and sharing your work.  Then, we will dive into proteomic analyses which are split up into two parts. First, we will use MaxQuant to analyze classical proteomic shotgun (label-free data dependent acquisition = DDA) data. MaxQuant is a standalone tool that enables peptide and protein identification as well as quantification.  In the second part we will perform a complete analysis workflow for data independent acquisition (DIA) data using a variety of open-source tools (including diapysef, OpenSwath, Pyprophet, MSstats). This includes generating a peptide library, refining the library and utilizing the library to identify and quantify peptides in DIA data.  2020-12-03 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-04 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Clemenspoort Gent, Ghent, Belgium Clemenspoort Gent Ghent Belgium 9000 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Deep learning in biology

    17 - 18 December 2020

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning in biology https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-in-biology-autumn-session Large amounts of data and compute resources have enabled the development of high-performance machine learning models. This is particularly due to deep learning techniques. By looking at many data samples, these models can find structure in the data that is useful for predictive and explorative analysis: e.g. classification, clustering, data generation, dimensionality reduction, etc. The most popular applications within biotechnology are concerned with image segmentation, diagnostics, sequence analysis, etc. However, deep learning models are far from straightforward to implement correctly due to the many different hyperparameter settings, optimization procedures, architecture choices, etc. In this course, we will make use of Jupyter Notebook and Keras, which are both based on Python, to apply deep learning techniques on both bio informatics and bio image informatics data. We aim to work towards applications that participants would like to study. 2020-12-17 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
