    4 November 2020

    WEBINAR: Galaxy Australia: enabling online data analysis for the research community https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-galaxy-australia-enabling-online-data-analysis-for-the-research-community Galaxy is your ultimate research buddy - an online platform for biological research that gives you access to computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience. It is supported by a rich collection of training materials and an active community of scientists. In this webinar we explore how Galaxy can transform your research through access to high performance computing power coupled with open, reproducible computational workflows and support from the Galaxy community. We’ll look at real-life examples of how Galaxy workflows are being applied to integrative meta-omics of microbial communities and how Galaxy is being leveraged to address the global challenges of COVID-19 research. Presenters: Dr Gareth Price, Service Manager, Galaxy Australia & Dr Johan Gustafsson, Bioinformatics Engagement Officer, Australian BioCommons Who the webinar is for: This webinar is suitable for life-science researchers. No prior knowledge of Galaxy or programming is required. 2020-11-04 13:00:00 UTC 2020-11-04 14:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Omics Bioinformatics [] [] Life Science Researchers workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Data analysislife sciencesbioinformatics
  • WEBINAR: Back to basics: handling research data

    5 November 2020

    WEBINAR: Back to basics: handling research data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/https-www-biocommons-org-au-events-basics-data-movement How does the internet work and does it impact on your research? Dealing with data is an everyday part of modern biology. From small files to enormous data sets we are constantly moving and sharing data across the globe. How we move this data can have a big impact on our time and productivity. Go back to basics in this interactive webinar to explore the factors that influence data movement and discover tools that can be used to move data efficiently. We'll cover topics such as jargon busting, types of networks, data movement solutions and introduce CloudStor as a tool for data storage, transfer and analysis. This interactive webinar includes a hands-on component. There will be opportunities for discussion and questions. 2020-11-05 13:00:00 UTC 2020-11-05 15:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia, Australia Australia Australia Biology Data management Bioinformatics [] [] Biologists 30 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served bioinformaticslife sciencesdata managementData skills

  • Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT)

    30 November 2020 - 31 January 2021

    Bacterial Genomes: Comparative Genomics using Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genomes-comparative-genomics-using-artemis-comparison-tool-act-3e9f10a2-bd0a-4af3-bc39-0d11856143e2 # Overview * **Duration**: 3 weeks, 5 hours per week * Free * Certificate of achievement available on satisfactory completion * **Start Date**: The course is run ‘live’ for 3 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? Disease outbreaks are still a big problem in our modern world. Comparison between two or more bacterial genomes can help improve understanding of the causes of pathogenicity and outbreaks of disease caused by bacteria. On this course you will learn how to use the free Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT). Developed at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, ACT will help you to visualise the comparison of genomes and analyse the results. ### Who is the course for? This course would benefit those interested in learning how to use tools to investigate and research bacterial genomes, and acquire bioinformatics skills to evaluate the role of microbial genes in disease. Learners will gain experience in comparative genomics, using the Artemis Comparison Tool to probe, visualise and compare genomes, and analyse the results. This course will be of interest to anyone interested in microbiology, including undergraduates, post-graduates, biomedical researchers, microbiologists, bioinformaticians, teachers, and healthcare professionals. The opportunity to gain experience in using the Artemis Comparison Tool, a computational tool designed for comparative genomics, will also be of interest to all those who have studied our pre-requisite courses: those with an interest in genomics and disease outbreaks, teachers and their 16-18-year-old science and computing students. Ideally, you will have completed [Bacterial Genomes: From DNA to Protein Function Using Bioinformatics][1] and [Bacterial Genomes: Accessing and Analysing Microbial Genome Data][2] before joining this course. [1]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-dna-protein-function-bioinformatics-online-sep19/ [2]: /our-events/bacterial-genomes-accessing-analysing-microbial-genome-data-feb19/ # Programme ### What topics will you cover? Week 1 * Introduction to comparative genomics * Introduction to ACT Week 2 * Analyse available data * Generate your own comparison files * Make your own comparisons in ACT Week 3 * Identify pseudogenes in Mycobacterium leprae using ACT * Peer review project: Comparative genomics on two clinically relevant plasmids from Shigella ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * Explain the advantages of comparative genomics * Explore basic tools of ACT * Interpret results from already generated comparison files * Produce new comparisons and analyse results * Develop hypothesis based on results observation ### What software or tools do you need? This course will give you an opportunity to learn about and use Artemis Comparison Tool (ACT), a free tool used to display pairwise comparisons between two DNA sequences. To run this software effectively, you will require a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with 2GB RAM. The current version of ACT requires version 11 of Java to run successfully. Java 11 can be downloaded from [this link][1]. Older versions of ACT require Java 8 to run successfully. Java 8 can be downloaded from [this link][2].
