  • ELIXIR Workshop Genomics

    7 - 8 November 2016

    Bruxelles, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    ELIXIR Workshop Genomics Goal The fast generation of large amounts of data is fundamentally changing the way how research is done today. Many domains of research are challenged with managing, analyzing and sharing genomics data. This is not just a challenge, it is an oppurtunity to implement this workshop for researchers to learn basic handling of genomics concepts, skills and tools. This workshop is aimed at researchers in the life sciences at all career stage and is designed for learners with little to no prior knowledge of Linux and command line tools or biological networks in Cytoscape. A basic knowledge of programming in R is recommended. ​ Workshop Topics The main ambition or this workshop is that researchers get more familiar with genomics data and handle it in a more efficient way. The following topics will be covered during the workshop.   DAY 1 Introduction to Linux and the command line The first session will introduce you to the use of Linux and the command line for managing and analyzing genomics data.   DAY 2​ Data manipulation in R This session gives an introduction to the use of the R packages plyr and ggplot2 for data manipulation and subsequent graphing. Initiation Cytoscape In this tutorial, you will be introduced to the basics of Cytoscape (how to make a network, change the visualisation parameters such as the layout, ...), and to more advanced functionalities such as data integration and data analysis using Cytoscape plugins. 2016-11-07 09:00:00 UTC 2016-11-08 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Belgium Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO), 231, Avenue Louise, Bruxelles, Belgium Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO), 231, Avenue Louise Bruxelles Belgium Data visualisation Molecular interactions, pathways and networks Bioinformatics VIB ELIXIR-BE PhD studentsPost Docs [] [] Cytoscape R-programming Linux
  • Biomolecular data mining: a hands-on training

    11 - 13 September 2017

    Antwerpen, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Biomolecular data mining: a hands-on training This course aims to introduce the core principles and biomedical applications of different data mining and machine learning techniques in a hands-on manner. It will tackle both unsupervised (clustering, frequent pattern mining, data projection) and supervised (classification) techniques. The methods that will be seen include hierarchical clustering, k- means clustering, item set mining, association rule mining, principle component analysis, support vector machines, random forests, bayesian networks and artificial neural networks. Attendees will be introduced to the basic operations of these data mining techniques, with a focus on the practical use and interpretation of these procedures rather than the mathematical formulas. In addition, attendants will be introduced to some important data processing and performance evaluation methods related to these data mining techniques. The software used in this course will be R. The course itself will consist of 50% theory lessons, 40% hands-on practicals and 10% application case studies. Organised by biomina: Dr. Pieter Meysman Prof. dr.
