  • RNA-Seq using R

    28 September 2015

    Melbourne, Australia

    RNA-Seq using R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-using-r The Monash Bioinformatics Platform want to help make introductory bioinformatic approaches part of the research landscape in Biomedicine. To do this, a foundation level of expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The platform will then be available to facilitate this work as well as develop more advanced bioinformatic projects with our researchers. We are running a two day hands-on workshop with a focus on enabling researchers to be able to analyse RNASeq (next-gen sequencing) data. Day 1, we will begin by teaching an introduction to programming using the R language. Day 2 will focus on using this knowledge to perform bioinformatic data analysis of some RNASeq data. Day one (Programming in R) is optional, for those well-versed in the R programming language, or programming in general. The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing. For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing". Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. 2015-09-28 09:00:00 UTC 2015-09-28 00:00:00 UTC Monash Bioinformatics Platform, Melbourne, Australia Monash Bioinformatics Platform Melbourne Australia Computer science Biomedical science Software engineering Computational biology RNA-Seq [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ABRBioinformaticsComputationalBiology

  • Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing

    15 July 2016

    Canberra, Australia

    Detecting Mutations with Short-Read Sequencing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/detecting-mutations-with-short-read-sequencing Reed A. Cartwright, Arizona State University Studying the process of de novo mutation from deep-sequencing of related samples is a difficult task. Because de novos are rare, artifacts generated by experimental and biological error tend to be more common than true positives. While de novos can be identified through validation, this is a slow process. In order to estimate mutation rates on large datasets in an automated way, we need to develop new probabilistic models that can handle sources of false positives. In this talk I will be discussing new computational methods to detect de novo mutations and their application to three different systems: human trios, ciliate mutation accumulation experiments, and yellow box eucalyptus.
