    Bacterial Genomes: From DNA to Protein Function Using Bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-from-dna-to-protein-function-using-bioinformatics-92c9e794-2186-4766-8435-3273e0756322 # Overview * **Duration**: 2 weeks, 5 hours per week * Free * Certificate of Achievement available on satisfactory completion * **CPD Approval**: Royal College of Pathologists (10 credits) * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 2 weeks from the start date above. Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? Join us in our quest to discover what makes microbes dangerous. Use bioinformatics to probe genomes, to explore and represent DNA and protein sequences. Then, use databases to find protein sequences’ conserved domains and investigate their functions. ### Who is the course for? The course will be of interest to undergraduates, post-graduates, researchers, bioinformaticians, biomedical researchers, microbiologists, healthcare professionals and all those who are interested in learning about the underlying mechanisms of bacterial disease, DNA sequences and protein data, or how to use online analytical tools to probe genomes. The topics covered in this course are applicable to the genomes of all organisms. It is not essential to have previous knowledge or experience in bioinformatics. Scientific terminology is explained. The opportunity to use online computational tools in the context of bacterial genomes will also be of interest to teachers and their 16-18-year-old science and computing students. ### What do people say about this course?

    Elixir node event
    ELIXIR Norway: Hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-norway-hands-on-bioinformatics-nels-workshop We are pleased to announce the second hands-on bioinformatics NeLS workshop organised in Tromsø by [ELIXIR Norway](https://www.elixir-norway.org/). The topic is on how you can use the Norwegian e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences - [NeLS](nels.bioinfo.no) to store and share data, and to run analyses via customisable analysis workflows in Galaxy. More specifically, we will go through how you can store data in NeLS and upload it directly into Galaxy. We will also construct and run a complete sequence analysis workflow for taxonomic profiling on a metagenomic sample. There are no requirements for programming skills or experience using the command line, as Galaxy provides a web interface for running analysis. 2019-11-26 09:00:00 UTC 2019-11-26 15:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110), Tromsø, Norway University of Tromsø, Medisin og helsefagbygget (MH øst): Datarom (U7.110) Tromsø Tromsø Norway 9019 Bioinformatics University of Tromsø ELIXIR Norway life scientistsdata managers 20 workshops_and_courses by_invitation bioinformaticsNeLSGalaxyEeLPeLearning

  • Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4

    10 - 12 December 2019

    Elixir node event
    Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introductory-linux-tutorial-for-life-sciences-4 NBIS (the Swedish node of ELIXIR) and ELIXIR Slovenia are offering an "Introduction to Linux" course targeted at life scientists who want to extend their skills and knowledge. Big data (usually in the form of large text files) are generated nowadays in many fields of science. Trying to handle this data with applications like Word or Excel is difficult or impossible, while using the Linux command line can improve data processing efficiency. Unix/Linux provides an excellent computing environment for several disciplines (such as bioinformatics, physics, engineering) and the command line interpreter (shell) serves as an interface to many big-data processing programs. The course provides a basic introduction to Unix/Linux commands and covers how Unix/Linux commands can be used to manage and inspect your data and results, and how to generate and run pipelines and workflows using basic shell scripting. Finally, we will show you how the command line is used for access to supercomputers for boosting your scientific research. Participants will be able to attend the course either by traveling to Stockholm or to Umeå in Sweden, to Ljubljana in Slovenia, or by connecting remotely via the ELIXIR Slovenia eLearning Platform (EeLP). The number of remote students is limited to 30. The number of students per classroom is limited to 15 for Stockholm and Umeå, and 20 for Ljubljana. Additional participants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as space becomes available. The course will be broadcast from Sweden. ***The registration deadline has been extended until Friday, November 22.*** 2019-12-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-12-12 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Sweden (NBIS) and ELIXIR Slovenia Bioinformatics Computer science NBISUniversity of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine [] Life Science ResearchersbioinformaticiansBiophysicistsengineers [] [] life sciences LinuxUnixEeLPeLearningCommand line
