  • 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

  • Cleaning & Exploring your data with Open Refine at USYD Camperdown

    27 September 2016

    Sydney, Australia

    Cleaning & Exploring your data with Open Refine at USYD Camperdown https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cleaning-exploring-your-data-with-open-refine-at-usyd-camperdown This three hour workshop presented by Intersect Australia introduces Open Refine which is a powerful tool for cleaning, normalisation and exploration of datasets. In this tutorial attendees will work through the various features of Refine, including importing data, faceting, clustering, and calling into remote APIs, by working on a fictional but plausible humanities research project. Who can access Intersect training services? * Researchers, research groups, and Higher-Degree Research students from any Intersect member organisation. * For people and organisations outside the Intersect membership, training can be provided on a fee-for-service basis.

  • Workshop on Research Objects (RO2018)

    29 October 2018

    Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Workshop on Research Objects (RO2018) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-on-research-objects-ro2018 In this workshop we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects and publishing of research data. **Deadlines**: * 2018-07-01 Abstracts due * 2018-07-15 Research articles and software/data articles due A travel bursary is available for accepted speakers, sponsored by [BioExcel](http://bioexcel.eu) (H2020-675728) ## Research Objects Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an increasing focus on **Open Research**, [FAIR](https://doi.org/10.1038/sdata.2016.18)data sharing and community-developed open source methods. A question remains on how to publish, archive and explore digital research outputs. A number of initiatives have begun to explore how to package and describe research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata, reusing existing Web standards and formats. Such efforts aim to address the challenges of structuring multi-part research outcomes with their context, handling distributed and living content and porting and safely exchange what we collectively can call **Research Objects** between platforms and between researchers. In the workshop **RO2018**, part of [IEEE eScience 2018](https://www.escience2018.com) in Amsterdam, we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects and publishing of research data with peer-reviewed presentations, invited talks, short demos, lightning talks and break-out sessions to further build relationships across scientific domains and RO practitioners. ## Call for Papers RO2018 welcomes submissions of academic abstracts (1-2 pages), data/software articles (3-6 pages) and short research articles (4-8 pages) on cross-cutting case studies or specific research on topics including, but not limited to: FAIR metrics; platforms, infrastructure and tools; lifecycles; access control and secure exchange; examples of exploitation and application; executable containers; metadata, packaging and formats; credit, attribution and peer review; dealing with scale and distribution; driving adoption within current scholarly communications and alignments with community efforts; and domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.

  • Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis

    5 - 7 August 2019

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-rna-seq-data-analysis-5989e86e-a408-481d-b3c7-5a1413b0e4a6 RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is quickly becoming the method of choice for transcriptome profiling. Nevertheless, it is a non-trivial task to transform the vast amount of data obtained with high-throughput sequencers into useful information. Thus, RNA-seq data analysis is still a major bottleneck for most researchers in this field. The ability of correctly interpreting RNA-seq results, as well as knowledge on the intrinsic properties of these data, are essential to avoid incorrect experimental designs and the application of inappropriate analysis methodologies. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. In the practicals Illumina-generated sequencing data and various widely used software programs will be used. 2019-08-05 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-07 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN RNA-Seq Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Edinburgh Genomics Training Team - edge-training@ed.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsRNA-seq
