    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to R for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-r-for-biologists R is one of the leading programming languages in Data Science. It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

On day 1, we will cover the importance of experimental design, discuss the challenges associated with (i) the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (utilising RNA-seq as a working example) and (ii) the application of machine learning algorithms, as well as issues relating to reusability and reproducibility. On day 2, we will put into practice concepts from day 1, running a RNA-seq data analysis pipeline, going from raw reads through differential expression analysis and the interpretation of downstream analysis results. Challenges encountered at each step of the analytical pipeline will be discussed. Please note that day 2 is optional.

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? "_Clear introduction of the – often viewed as complex – field of bioinformatics_." Mqondisi Tshabalala, PhD student, Institute for Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Pretoria, South Africa "_Highlights of the course were the investigations with the databases - these reinforced the learning._" Dr. Alan McLintic, Anaesthesiologist, Faculty of Medicine and Health Scientists, University of Auckland, New Zealand # Programme and start dates ### Course start dates This course will be repeated: Next start dates: * September 2019 (date TBC) ### What topics will you cover? * Bioinformatics tools, DNA and protein sequences * Retrieving DNA and protein sequences from repositories * Databases for protein annotation * Inferring function from sequence ### What will you achieve? By the end of the course, you'll be able to... * assess DNA representations and protein sequences * perform searches in primary databases (repositories) and retrieve gene/protein data * interpret different repository submission formats * investigate biological databases for research * identify the putative function of proteins based on their conserved domains # Educators ## **Lead Educators** ### Dr Anna Protasio I am a researcher in parasitology and life sciences. I am passionate about bioinformatics and how we can use these tools to answer questions in biology. ### Martin Aslett I am the IT Manager for the Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences team. My interests lie in bioinformatics and its application to microbial genomics. ### Dr Christine Boinett I am a researcher in bacterial genetics and my interest is in understanding the development of resistance in bacterial pathogens using next generation sequencing techniques. ## **Educator** ### Matthew Dorman I am a graduate student at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, where I research the virulence and the molecular genetics of bacterial pathogens as part of the Infection Genomics programme. ## **Programme Lead Educator** ### Professor Nicholas Thomson Group Leader at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, interested in bacterial evolution and the spread of infectious disease; provides scientific oversight for this course. The course also features interviews with two distinguished experts: ### Dr Rob Finn Team Leader of EMBL-EBI Sequence Families Team ### Dr Claire Chewapreecha Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow and Lecturer, University of Cambridge, UK, and King Mongkut University of Technology, Thailand. # What's Included Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences are offering everyone who joins this course a free digital upgrade, so that you can experience the full benefits of studying online for free.

  • Ensembl gene annotation for clinical genomics

    18 September 2019

    Elixir node event
    Ensembl gene annotation for clinical genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/ensembl-gene-annotation-for-clinical-genomics Ensembl provides the GENCODE gene annotation that is used by major sequencing projects. In this webinar you will learn about how the GENCODE genes are annotated and how you can use them to report the locations of clinically relevant variants. We will also cover our latest project to create the MANE (Matched Annotation from NCBI and EBI) transcript set, to ensure consistent variant reporting across databases. 2019-09-18 15:30:00 UTC 2019-09-18 16:30:00 UTC [] Melissa Burke [] [] [] [] HDRUK
  • Statistics for Biologists in R

    19 - 20 September 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Statistics for Biologists in R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/statistics-for-biologists-in-r-f130f1e1-8d44-46e0-b02c-ed742ad66773 This course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques. This event is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    Elixir node event
    Autumn School in Data Science: Machine learning applications for life sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/summer-school-in-biomedical-data-science-best-practices-for-single-cell-analysis-and-machine-learning-applications THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED! This Autumn School aims to familiarise biomedical students and researchers with principles of Data Science. Focusing on utilising machine learning algorithms to handle biomedical data, it will cover: effects of experimental design, data readiness, pipeline implementations, machine learning in Python, and related statistics, as well as Gaussian Process models. Providing practical experience in the implementation of machine learning methods relevant to biomedical applications, including Gaussian processes, we will illustrate best practices that should be adopted in order to enable reproducibility in any data science application. This event is sponsored by [Cambridge Big Data](https://www.bigdata.cam.ac.uk/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
