    Open Targets: Integrating genetics, genomics and drug information for translational research and drug discovery (Webinar) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/open-targets-integrating-genetics-genomics-and-drug-information-for-translational-research-and-drug-discovery-webinar [Open Targets](https://www.opentargets.org/) is a public-private partnership to use human genetics, genomic data and drug information for systematic identification and prioritisation of therapeutic targets. This module introduces the Open Targets partnership, its underlying projects and the bioinformatics resources for researchers studying associations of human genes with diseases. In this 90 minute long webinar, [Denise Carvalho-Silva](https://www.ebi.ac.uk/about/people/denise-carvalho-silva/), will focus on [Open Targets Platform](https://www.opentargets.org/) and [Open Targets Genetics](https://genetics.opentargets.org/), open source tools of integrated genetic, genomic and chemical data for target-disease associations.

    Elixir node event
    An Introduction to Biological Networks & their Visualization (Webinar) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-biological-networks-their-visualization-webinar This webinar is an Introduction to Biological Networks, their types, and applications. It will include two of the most commonly used open source Network Visualisation Platforms (R-igraph and Cytoscape) with step-wise protocols for creating and visualising your own data as a network. It will present some of the major layout algorithms, visual styles and tips for effective visualisation, with examples from biology revealing how these can improve analysis and provide insights. The webinar will be presented in the form of a lecture as well as a tutorial with step-wise screenshots that enable listeners to emulate simple Network creation and analysis. Please note that this is a webinar and not a coding exercise. Links to publicly available resources and hands-on tutorials will be shared with you for further reading and practice.

  • An Introduction to Machine Learning (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    15 - 17 July 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    An Introduction to Machine Learning (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-machine-learning-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. 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. Machine learning gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. It encompasses a broad range of approaches to data analysis with applicability across the biological sciences. Lectures will introduce commonly used algorithms and provide insight into their theoretical underpinnings. In the practicals students will apply these algorithms to real biological data-sets using the R language and environment. Please be aware that the course syllabus is currently being updated following feedback from the last event; therefore the agenda below will be subjected to changes.

    KNIME: Practical introduction to KNIME Analytics platform and its application in bioinformatics (Webinar) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/knime-practical-introduction-to-knime-analytics-platform-and-its-application-in-bioinformatics-webinar This event introduces participants to the [KNIME](https://www.knime.com/) Analytics Platform, an open source data science platform with a visual workflow editor, that can be used by users without prior programming experience or integrated with existing scripts written in R or Python. These sessions are aimed towards anyone who has an interest in building data science workflows with different kinds of life science data. The sessions will cover how to aggregate data from different sources (e.g., files, databases, web services), how to calculate simple statistics (e.g., for data exploration), network mining (e.g., protein-protein interactions) and big data analytics (e.g., next-generation sequencing data). The webinar will combine practical and taught content to demonstrate how users can use KNIME to design and utilise reproducible data science workflows, such as analytics tasks, and better explore and understand their data.
