  • Docker Advanced Course

    26 - 27 September 2018

    Milano, Italy

    Docker Advanced Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/docker-advanced-course Docker is used to run “containers” that are essentially lightweight virtual machines. Containers are isolated from each other and use their own set of tools and libraries; they can communicate through well-defined channels. This allows to easily deploy programs since all requisites of a program are stored inside the containers. This course will provide the basic notions and tool to allow a developer to “dockerize” her programs, and to manage a set of containers, hence greatly improving the installation process. 2018-09-26 09:00:00 UTC 2018-09-27 18:00:00 UTC Gianluca Della Vedova (Department of Computer Science, University of Milano-Bicocca, IT), Loredana Le Pera (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator Deputy, IBIOM-CNR, IT), Allegra Via (ELIXIR-IIB Training Coordinator, IBPM-CNR, IT) Via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8, Lab. 715, U7 Building, Milano, Italy Via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8, Lab. 715, U7 Building Milano Città Metropolitana di Milano Italy 20126 Computer science Bioinformatics University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy gianluca.dellavedova@unimib.it [] DevelopersDevOps in any field 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_servedregistration_of_interest DockerContainersVirtual machine

  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    12 - 16 August 2019

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-965f36b3-e040-43cd-bb06-f4e5e3cc588e Registration fee: £500 Places: 15 (first come, first served) Application deadline: 14th June 2019 DESCRIPTION Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. The instructor of the workshop is the Founder of Python for Biologists, Dr. Martin Jones. Format The workshop will take place over 5 days. Each day will consist of 2 half-day sessions, each consisting of a ~1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of practical exercises. It is important that attendees attend each session as they will use examples and exercises that build on the materials from previous sessions. For more information and a detailed syllabus please see the following link: https://pythonforbiologists.com/introduction-to-python-for-biologists Who should attend This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind. Requirements Attendees will require a level of biological and bioinformatics background so they can appreciate the examples and exercises (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). Attendees will require the ability to us a text editor (e.g. nano, vim, or gedit). No previous programming knowledge is required. Attendees will use their own laptops during the workshop. Instructions for any software to be installed will be sent out prior to the course. If you are not sure if this course is suitable for you please do not hesitate to contact Dr Martin Jones (martin@pythonforbiologists.com) Please fill in the following form (https://forms.gle/mkjiASxS7sKBxeGo7) if you would like to register for the Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop. Applicants will be asked to pay a registration fee of £500. After the application deadline (14th of June) or when all places are fill applicants will be asked to pay for the workshop. Once your fee is paid your place on the course will be confirmed. 2019-08-12 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-16 17:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Research, University of Liverpool (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/genomic-research/) 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, United Kingdom 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L3 5SR University of Liverpool [] [] 15 workshops_and_courses [] pythonbioinformaticsprogrammingintrobeginner

    Nextflow 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nextflow-2019 **Create. Deploy. Share.** Nextflow is a popular workflow management solution that allows scientists and engineers to create data-driven applications which can be effortlessly scaled across clusters and clouds. It simplifies the writing of complex distributed computational workflows in a portable and replicable manner. Nextflow allows the seamless parallelization and deployment of any existing application with minimal development and maintenance overhead, irrespective of the original programming language. Containerisation technologies and inbuilt executors for the most popular cluster systems (SLURM, PBS, UGE, LSF, etc) and cloud infrastructure (AWS Batch & Google Cloud Platform) ensures unrivalled deployment. The built-in support for code repositories provides code sharing for the collaborations that matter most and enable your applications to touch the world. But most of all, the active community of that has formed around Nextflow provides inspirational, best-in-class technical examples from global leaders in workflow deployment as well as lasting relationships in a growing community. __Nextflow Training - 17th and 18th September 2019__ The week kicks off with a two-day intensive workshop intended for Nextflow beginners and intermediate users. In these practical sessions, participants learn about Nextflow technology starting from basic through to advanced concepts, with the expectation they will acquire the proficiency to develop and deploy their own workflows. The workshop will be provided across 14 topics including processes, operators, executors, containers and best practices. A GitHub repository will be provided with all the necessary material and software as well as AWS cloud instances for running the deployments in the relevant practical sessions. The audience is expected to have at least some prior basic command line experience. __Nextflow Camp - 19th and 20th September 2019__ Nextflow Camp brings together the Nextflow community of developers and users to discuss the state of Nextflow technology, the latest developments and tackle the open questions in a collaborative manner. Each day is split between talks from Nextflow experts and tutorial breakout sessions where participants get a flavour for the possibilities for their own applications.
