    Using the Ensembl Genome Browser (ONLINE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/using-the-ensembl-genome-browser-online-training-f8a26f20-facb-424d-9f7b-6fd21fdf3d5c PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. The [Ensembl Project](http://www.ensembl.org) provides a comprehensive and integrated source of annotation of, mainly vertebrate, genome sequences. 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.

  • EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility

    4 - 8 October 2021

    Elixir node event
    EMBO Practical Course - Research to service: Planning and running a bioinformatics core facility https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/embo-practical-course-research-to-service-planning-and-running-a-bioinformatics-core-facility-62ea6744-3a2b-4478-886d-69be519d5e25 Computational core facilities play a vital role in enabling molecular life science, and the number of such facilities has grown considerably. There are many relatively inexperienced managers of core facilities, who often have to juggle their own research projects with the development and operation of services. This can be exceptionally challenging, not least because scientific impact tends only to be recognised and rewarded for research. The "EMBO Practical Course | Research to Service: Planning and Running a Bioinformatics Core Facility" is aimed at newly appointed managers of bioinformatics core facilities, especially those with one foot in the research camp, or those managers willing to stabilize and grow their services. The training set will provide an opportunity to learn from experienced core facilities managers on how to build a framework for the future development, resourcing, operation and impact assessment of your core services. By the end of the course, participants will have learned how to: *Identify the strengths and limitations of their core facility and prioritise areas for improvement *Design bioinformatics services and training using a user-centred approach and assuring best practices *Estimate the computing and human resources required to operate their facility effectively *Support users to manage their data, including sensitive data 2021-10-04 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-08 14:00:00 UTC Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center (IBG), INCLIVA Health Research Institute, Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) Bioinformatics INB/ELIXIR-ESBSC BSC Organising Team: embo.bioinfocore@bsc.es [] Core Facility Managers 20 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest managing skillsdata managementsustainabilityservice designcomputing resourcesstorage needs
  • Next Generation Sequencing Platforms and Bioinformatics Analysis (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    26 - 27 October 2021

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Next Generation Sequencing Platforms and Bioinformatics Analysis (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/next-generation-sequencing-platforms-and-bioinformatics-analysis-online-live-training-e3757e4e-fa87-48a9-b5bf-256dd59b045b PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Day 1 will introduce you to next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) and how they work, providers, common bioinformatics workflows, standardised file types, quality control. This session will include an introduction to Galaxy. [Galaxy](https://galaxyproject.org/) is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive life science research that enables non-bioinformaticians to create, run, tune, and share their own bioinformatic analyses. Day 2 will be hands-on practicals on using Galaxy to explore sequencing quality control, before and after removal of low quality samples. This forms the core of all NGS analyses and this day will conclude with how this data pipes into gene expression studies, variant calling and genome assemblies.

We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. This course provides a refresher on the foundations of statistical analysis. The emphasis is on interpreting the results of a statistical test, and being able to determine the correct test to apply. Practicals are conducted using a series of online apps, and we will not teach a particular statistical analysis package, such as R. For courses that teach R, please see the links under "Related courses" . This event is part of a series of training courses organized in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Core Facility at [CRUK Cambridge Institute](http://www.cruk.cam.ac.uk/).

    Managing your Research Data (Online) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/managing-your-research-data-online-76810eb7-4087-4495-8dab-9322044fe215 PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online, with tutors to assist you with instant and personalised feedback and to help you to run/execute the scripts which we will be using during the course. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. How much data would you lose if your laptop was stolen? Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named 'final_final_versionEDITED'? Have you ever struggled to import your spreadsheets into R? Would you be able to write a Data Management Plan as part of a grant proposal? As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications. Whether you create, receive or collect data, you will certainly need to organise it at some stage of your project. This workshop will provide an overview of some basic principles on how we can work with data more effectively. We will discuss the best practices for research data management and organisation so that our research is auditable and reproducible by ourselves, and others, in the future.
