  • Genome assembly and annotation course 5

    1 - 5 July 2019

    Milan, Italy

    Elixir node event
    Genome assembly and annotation course 5 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-assembly-and-annotation-course-5 A **genome assembly and annotation course** will take place on **July 1-5, 2019** in **Milan, Italy**, hosted by the Italian ELIXIR Node in cooperation with other ELIXIR nodes that are involved in the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE task 10.3 “Capacity Building in Genome Assembly and Annotation”. Some of the most experienced assembly and annotation experts in Europe will be teaching at the course. The course is aimed at researchers interested in learning more about genome assembly and annotation. It will include information useful for both the beginner and the more advanced user. We will start by introducing general concepts and then continue with a step-by-step description of all major components of a genome assembly and annotation workflow, from raw data all the way to a final assembled and annotated genome. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using Unix/Linux command line. After the course, the participants will have knowledge of commonly used assembly practices and tools. They will be able to run assembly and annotation projects on their own. **Prerequisites:** - **Working knowledge of Unix/Linux command line** - **As part of the course agenda, course participants will prepare a short presentation about their own projects.** Optionally, they may also bring their own data. **Instructions how to register for the course are available on the [ELIXIR-SI eLearning Platform (EELP)](https://elixir.mf.uni-lj.si/course/view.php?id=45).** You will be able to access the course after you register and your registration is approved by the course organizers. 2019-07-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-07-05 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Italy University of Milano-Bicocca, Building U7, Lab 715, Milan, Italy University of Milano-Bicocca, Building U7, Lab 715 Milan Città Metropolitana di Milano Italy Genomics University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy General questions: gianluca.dellavedova@unimib.it Questions about the course agenda: henrik.lantz@nbis.se National Research Council of ItalyINRANBIS - National Bioinformatics Infrastructure SwedenELIXIR EXCELERATE life scientistsResearchersPhD students 24 workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Genomics AssemblyTrainingeLearningEeLP
  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    12 - 16 August 2019

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Python for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-python-for-biologists-965f36b3-e040-43cd-bb06-f4e5e3cc588e Registration fee: £500 Places: 15 (first come, first served) Application deadline: 14th June 2019 DESCRIPTION Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. The instructor of the workshop is the Founder of Python for Biologists, Dr. Martin Jones. Format The workshop will take place over 5 days. Each day will consist of 2 half-day sessions, each consisting of a ~1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of practical exercises. It is important that attendees attend each session as they will use examples and exercises that build on the materials from previous sessions. For more information and a detailed syllabus please see the following link: https://pythonforbiologists.com/introduction-to-python-for-biologists Who should attend This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind. Requirements Attendees will require a level of biological and bioinformatics background so they can appreciate the examples and exercises (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). Attendees will require the ability to us a text editor (e.g. nano, vim, or gedit). No previous programming knowledge is required. Attendees will use their own laptops during the workshop. Instructions for any software to be installed will be sent out prior to the course. If you are not sure if this course is suitable for you please do not hesitate to contact Dr Martin Jones (martin@pythonforbiologists.com) Please fill in the following form (https://forms.gle/mkjiASxS7sKBxeGo7) if you would like to register for the Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop. Applicants will be asked to pay a registration fee of £500. After the application deadline (14th of June) or when all places are fill applicants will be asked to pay for the workshop. Once your fee is paid your place on the course will be confirmed. 2019-08-12 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-16 17:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Research, University of Liverpool (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/genomic-research/) 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, United Kingdom 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L3 5SR University of Liverpool [] [] 15 workshops_and_courses [] pythonbioinformaticsprogrammingintrobeginner
  • Nextflow 2019

    17 - 20 September 2019

    Barcelona, Spain

    Elixir node event
    Nextflow 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/nextflow-2019 **Create. Deploy. Share.** Nextflow is a popular workflow management solution that allows scientists and engineers to create data-driven applications which can be effortlessly scaled across clusters and clouds. It simplifies the writing of complex distributed computational workflows in a portable and replicable manner. Nextflow allows the seamless parallelization and deployment of any existing application with minimal development and maintenance overhead, irrespective of the original programming language. Containerisation technologies and inbuilt executors for the most popular cluster systems (SLURM, PBS, UGE, LSF, etc) and cloud infrastructure (AWS Batch & Google Cloud Platform) ensures unrivalled deployment. The built-in support for code repositories provides code sharing for the collaborations that matter most and enable your applications to touch the world. But most of all, the active community of that has formed around Nextflow provides inspirational, best-in-class technical examples from global leaders in workflow deployment as well as lasting relationships in a growing community. __Nextflow Training - 17th and 18th September 2019__ The week kicks off with a two-day intensive workshop intended for Nextflow beginners and intermediate users. In these practical sessions, participants learn about Nextflow technology starting from basic through to advanced concepts, with the expectation they will acquire the proficiency to develop and deploy their own workflows. The workshop will be provided across 14 topics including processes, operators, executors, containers and best practices. A GitHub repository will be provided with all the necessary material and software as well as AWS cloud instances for running the deployments in the relevant practical sessions. The audience is expected to have at least some prior basic command line experience. __Nextflow Camp - 19th and 20th September 2019__ Nextflow Camp brings together the Nextflow community of developers and users to discuss the state of Nextflow technology, the latest developments and tackle the open questions in a collaborative manner. Each day is split between talks from Nextflow experts and tutorial breakout sessions where participants get a flavour for the possibilities for their own applications. We hope to see you in Barcelona in September! 2019-09-17 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-20 18:00:00 UTC Paolo Di Tommaso PRBB Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona, 88, Carrer del Doctor Aiguader, Barcelona, Spain PRBB Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona, 88, Carrer del Doctor Aiguader Barcelona Barcelona Spain 08003 Centre for Genomic Regulation training@crg.eu AWS Bioinformaticians 50 meetings_and_conferencesworkshops_and_courses first_come_first_served NextflowWorkflowsContainersCloud ComputingHPC
