    Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/quality-assurance-and-quality-control-in-metabolomics-be1c5fec-8224-4a4a-8848-2964313595ae # Course Overview The application of quality assurance and quality control in the metabolomics field is vital to ensure the collection of high quality data. In this course you will explore the importance of quality assurance and quality control in both untargeted and targeted metabolomics studies. We will explain the difference between quality control and quality assurance and how to apply in your studies and laboratories. You will evaluate the types of quality control samples that can be applied in metabolomics, what is the most appropriate quality control sample to use in your research, and how to apply the data in your quality assurance procedure to produce robust and reproducible data. The materials in this course are delivered via the FutureLearn platform over a three week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. Each week you will work through a number of steps to complete the learning material. A step may include a short video, an article, an exercise with step-by-step instructions, a discussion to interact with your peer and a selection of quizzes, tests and polls to self-assess your own learning. All of the course material is uploaded to the FutureLearn platform so that you can complete the steps at a convenient time for you. We (the educators) support your learning via social discussions where you will be able post questions and comments to the team of educators and the other learners on the course throughout the three weeks. In the final week of the course we will record a summary video where we will respond to questions posted by you during the course. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 3-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able. # Topics Covered * What are quality assurance and quality control and how do they differ * What is the importance of quality assurance in metabolomics * The types of quality assurance and quality control in untargeted and targeted metabolomics * The importance of quality control samples * The types of quality control samples applied in untargeted and targeted metabolomics * Preparation of quality control samples in untargeted and targeted metabolomics * Analytical studies including untargeted and targeted metabolomics * Processing data in untargeted and targeted metabolomics * Recommended quality assurance procedures in untargeted and targeted metabolomics * Reporting quality assurance procedures in untargeted and targeted metabolomics 2021-03-08 09:00:00 UTC 2021-03-26 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Metabolomics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] MetabolomicsQuality AssuranceQuality Control
  • Using containers in bioinformatics

    25 - 26 March 2021

    Using containers in bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/using-containers-in-bioinformatics Are you wondering how your research could benefit from workflow containerisation? Containers enable you to package up an application and its dependencies and encourage reproducibility, portability and shareability of computational workflows. This workshop explores the merits, advantages and limitations of applying containers in bioinformatics. During the workshop you will: - learn and practice the basics of building, deploying and running applications in containers - explore real use cases related to biology - discuss tips and best practices, and have your questions answered. This workshop will be delivered online through a combination of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on interactive exercises supported by containers experts. On day 1 you will learn new skills through undertaking practical exercises and on day 2 you can bring your own pipeline to get advice and tips in a small group setting. **Learning outcomes** By the end of the workshop you should be able to: - Identify when you would benefit from using containers in your workflow - Download container images and run commands from inside a container using Singularity - Identify popular image registries - Discuss the pros & cons of building with Singularity vs Docker - Describe the basic syntax of a Dockerfile - Build and share an image with Docker - Convert a Docker image into the Singularity format **Lead trainer:** TBC **Date/time:** 12:30pm - 4:00pm AEDT/ 11:30am - 3:00pm AEST/ 12:00pm - 3:30pm ACDT / 9:30am - 1:00pm AWST Thursday 25 - Friday 26 March 2021 **Who the workshop is for** Basic familiarity with UNIX shell concepts and command line interactions are required. Participants do not need any previous experience with containers. This workshop is open to staff and students from Australian universities and research institutes. **How to apply** The workshop is free but participation is subject to application with selection. Please note that applications that do not nominate an Australian institute and do not provide an appropriate institutional email address will not be able to take part. Applications will be reviewed by the organising committee and all applicants will be informed of the status of their application (successful, waiting list, unsuccessful) by Friday 19 March 2021. Participants will be provided with a Zoom meeting link closer to the date. Please complete the application form if you are interested in attending this workshop. **Applications close 5pm AEDT Monday 15 March 2021.** [Apply here](https://biocommons-containers-2021.eventbrite.com.au/) The workshop is presented by the [Australian BioCommons](https://www.biocommons.org.au/) and [Pawsey Supercomputing Centre](https://pawsey.org.au/) with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national [Bioinformatics Training Cooperative](https://www.biocommons.org.au/training-cooperative). This event is part of a series of [bioinformatics training events](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events).
