    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Core Statistics using R (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/core-statistics-using-r-online-live-training-1bdf4c7a-2283-4160-b3e3-4a8e7385502d This [award winning](https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/teaching-prizes/tel-prize/2020) virtually delivered 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. There are three core goals for this course: # Use R confidently for statistics and data analysis # Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques # Know which tests are and are not appropriate R is an open source programming language so all of the software we will use in the course is free. In this course, we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to linear models and power analyses. 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.

  • Building Workflows in Digital Health

    29 June 2022

    Manchester, United Kingdom

    Building Workflows in Digital Health https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/building-workflows-in-digital-health Orchestration Workflows are widely used in computational data analysis, enabling innovation and decision-making. Often the analysis components are numerous, and written by third parties, without an eye on interoperability. In addition, many competing workflow systems exist, potentially limiting portability of workflows written for any one specific workflow system. This hinders the transfer of workflows between different systems and projects, limiting their re-usability. The Common Workflow Language (CWL) project (https://www.commonwl.org/) was established in order to produce free and open standards for describing command-line tool-based workflows. The CWL language is declarative and provides a focused set of common abstractions enabling the expression of computational workflows constructed from diverse software tools. Explicit declaration of requirements for runtime environments and software containers enables portability and reuse. Workflows written according to the CWL standards are a reusable description of that analysis, runnable on a diverse set of computing environments. 2022-06-29 10:00:00 UTC 2022-06-29 17:00:00 UTC N8CIR University Place, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom University Place, University of Manchester Manchester United Kingdom M13 9PL Bioinformatics Workflows Data architecture, analysis and design University of Manchester [] [] workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest workflowsdata-analysiscomputational methods

    Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-working-with-unix-and-bash-online-live-training-b013c4ea-fc73-42d1-9ac5-b11435801e1b PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands. Building on the techniques learnt so far, we will then construct bash scripts combining the commands and structures already learnt into more complex, reusable tools. We will look at how we can apply these scripts to common problems faced in UNIX environments such as: communicating with remote servers; managing custom software installations and integrating these tools into our simple pipelines. This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.
