    What is Genetic Counselling? https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/what-is-genetic-counselling # Overview * **Duration:** 6 weeks live, 2 hours per week * **Free** * **Certificate of achievement** available on satisfactory completion * **Start Date:** The course is run ‘live’ for 6 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? Who are genetic counsellors? Who has genetic counselling and what does a genetic counsellor do? On this course, you will find the answers to these questions whilst learning about the role of genetic counselling in healthcare and the genomic era. You will discover why people seek genetic counselling and how it compares in different contexts and countries. You will explore the main skills and knowledge needed of a genetic counsellor, as well as their key responsibilities to patients. You will also discuss the ethical issues of genetic counselling, and its varied opportunities and challenges for the future. ### Who is the course for? This course is designed for healthcare professionals, clinicians, biomedical research scientists, and anyone curious about genetic counselling. Although not required, a basic knowledge of genetics, genetic testing technologies, and inheritance patterns would help support your learning on this course. ### What do people say about this course? _"What a great course. Perfect introduction to genetic counseling. This has given me a very real insight into the work that is carried out prior to my role in a genetic testing laboratory. Also overwhelming to think of the hours that go into the counselling sessions, ensuring patients are prepared, informed and able to make their own decisions." - Previous Participant_ _"Thank you very much for such an informative, enjoyable and though-provoking course. I have learnt a lot during these six weeks and I definitely know more now than I did prior to starting! I am glad to say that this has increased my interest in Genetic counselling as a profession and am very likely going to pursue it as a career." - Previous Participant_ _"Thank you Anna and Jonathan for a very interesting course, I have enjoyed the role play as it allowed me to be in the GC and clients shoes, and discussing my thoughts/comments with my fellow learners, and learning about the difference in other countries that was shared. Kept me gripped learning something new." _- _Previous Participant_ _"It has been a great and interesting time in the last six weeks. Understanding the personal feelings/ views of patients (autonomy, empathy, patience, etc), professional ways of communication in GC, ethics of GC, with the professional know how of the Genetic Counsellors; the different contexts of Genetic Services in different countries,and also sharing the view of my co-learners, has been a great experience._ _These will greatly assist in the discharge of my duties to the the patients as I come across them whether at my duty post or elsewhere."_ - Previous Participant # Programme ### What topics will you cover? * Why people would see a genetic counsellor * Some of a genetic counsellor’s key tasks * A genetic counsellor’s key skills and knowledge: counselling skills, medical and scientific knowledge * Ethical issues in genetic counselling * What the future might hold for genetic counsellors ### What will you achieve?

    Extracting biological information from gene lists (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE that until further notice, due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus no courses will be offered as classroom based at the Training Facility. The Bioinformatics Team will be teaching the course live online in conjunction with the presenters. Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication.

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of DNA Methylation using Sequencing (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-dna-methylation-using-sequencing-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE that until further notice, due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus no courses will be offered as classroom based at the Training Facility. The Bioinformatics Team will be teaching the course live online in conjunction with the presenters. This course will cover all aspects of the analysis of DNA methylation using sequencing, including primary analysis, mapping and quality control of BS-Seq data, common pitfalls and complications. It will also include exploratory analysis of methylation, looking at different methods of quantitation, and a variety of ways of looking more widely at the distribution of methylation over the genome. Finally the course will look at statistical methods to predict differential methylation. The course will be comprised of a mixture of theoretical lectures and practicals covering a range of different software packages.

  • Experimental Design (Online)

    21 October 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Experimental Design (Online) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/experimental-design-online 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. Modern technologies are able to deliver an unprecedented amount of data rapidly. However, without due care and attention early in the experimental process, such data are meaningless if they cannot adequately answer the intended research question. This course is aimed at those planning high-throughput experiments and highlights the kinds of questions they should be asking themselves. The course consists of a lecture and small-group discussions led by a member of the Genomics or Bioinformatics Cores. This event is part of a series of training courses organized in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Core Facility at [CRUK Cambridge Institute](http://www.cruk.cam.ac.uk/).
