Bacterial Genome Assembly
14 - 16 June 2022Bacterial Genome Assembly https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc2pYxhV7MVPgYgjmisqzMhe1dEMQMTLZ2QqrVU6dtoambwxg/viewform https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bacterial-genome-assembly Bacterial Genome Assembly - Tuesday 14 & Thursday 16 June 2022 With the advent and improvement of long read sequencing technologies, bacterial genome assembly and annotation is easier and more effective than ever. At the end of this course you will be able to perform genome assembly and polishing of PacBio sequencing followed by annotation with prokka. Additionally you will be able to assess the quality of the genome with contiguity measures from QUAST and genome completeness estimation with BUSCO. Places are restricted to UK-based researchers and only 20 places are available so please only register if you intend on attending. The workshop will be held over two days on Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 June 2022, 10am-4pm, with registration opening 9.30am on Tuesday. The deadline to register is Monday 30th June. You will hear later that week whether you have been invited and will need to confirm your attendance.

Advanced Python for Biologists 2022
4 - 15 July 2022Advanced Python for Biologists 2022 https://www.earlham.ac.uk/advanced-python-biologists-2022 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/advanced-python-for-biologists-2022 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 people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The workshop will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. This event will be delivered virtually via Zoom & Slack, see more details on the further information tab. Please see here for a detailed syllabus of the course. 2022-07-04 09:00:00 UTC 2022-07-15 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute      
RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis
12 - 14 July 2022RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeeDh1vymiL1RRPWSLlkbxR7MdEh1RG9Y81PJCwslhLTa5F9w/viewform https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rna-seq-gene-expression-and-pathway-analysis RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis - 12&14 July 2022 RNA-Seq (aka whole transcriptomic shotgun sequencing) aims to determine the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample at a given moment in time. This allows you to determine the level of expression of these genes and therefore compare these expressions across different sample groups, i.e. Differential Gene Expression (DGE). At the end of this course you will be able to align the transcriptomes of samples to a reference genome to determine gene expression levels. Following this you will be able to carry out Differential Gene Expression analysis to determine which genes are up and down regulated between sample groups. Places are restricted to UK-based researchers and only 20 places are available so please only register if you intend on attending. The workshop will be held over two days on Tuesday 12 and Thursday 14 July 2022, 10am-4pm, with registration opening 9.30am on Tuesday. The deadline to register is Monday 27 June, 2 weeks before the course. You will hear later that week whether you have been invited and will need to confirm your attendance.
