  • WEBINAR: Getting started with R

    16 August 2021

    Australia

    WEBINAR: Getting started with R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-getting-started-with-r Data analysis skills are now central to most biological experiments. While Excel can cover some of your data analysis needs, it is not always the best choice, particularly for large and complex datasets. R is an open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis visualisation and more. While it is the tool of choice for data analysis, getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics. In this webinar Saskia Freytag, an R user with over a decade of experience and member of the [Bioconductor Community Advisory Board](https://www.bioconductor.org/about/community-advisory-board/), will walk you through their hints and tips for getting started with R and data analysis. She’ll cover topics like [R Studio](https://www.rstudio.com/) and why you need it, where to get help, basic data manipulation, visualisations and extending R with libraries. The webinar will be followed by a short Q&A session. **Who the webinar is for** Aspiring data analysts from a variety of biological fields **Presenter**: Dr Saskia Freytag, Postdoctoral Fellow, Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. **Date/time:** 16 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_j3bXauUDQwW_q64JgnvdpQ)** 2021-08-16 12:00:00 UTC 2021-08-16 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Online, Australia Online Australia Bioinformatics Statistics and probability Data architecture, analysis and design Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke melissa@biocommons.org.au [] Biologists 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Data analysisR
  • WEBINAR: Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute

    19 August 2021

    Australia

    WEBINAR: Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-where-to-go-when-your-bioinformatics-outgrows-your-compute Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and "Just getting it to work" are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey. We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for biological researchers who wish to understand what computational infrastructure is available outside their institution’s compute facilities. Some familiarity with the concepts of high performance computing is recommended. We think you will enjoy this webinar if you have experienced one of the following: • Your high performance computing jobs fail because of walltime limits • Not having enough disk to process your data • Feeling intimidated by the compute resources and time required to process large datasets If you’re considering applying for access to compute through the NCMAS allocation scheme you can find out more about tailoring your application to bioinformatics projects in our next webinar [High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/ncmas). **Presenters:** Georgina Samaha and Dr Tracy Chew, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 19 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hJ2bJLlBQC2kJ0tCUOP9SQ)** 2021-08-19 12:00:00 UTC 2021-08-19 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia Australia Workflows Bioinformatics Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke melissa@biocommons.org.au [] Biologistsbioinformaticians 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served HPCHigh performance computingComputeBioinformaticsWorkflowsNCMAS
  • WEBINAR: High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application

    Australia

    WEBINAR: High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-high-performance-bioinformatics-submitting-your-best-ncmas-application Bioinformaticians are increasingly turning to specialised compute infrastructure and efficient, scalable workflows as their research becomes more data intensive. Australian researchers that require extensive compute resources to process large datasets can apply for access to national high performance computing facilities (e.g. Pawsey and NCI) to power their research through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS). NCMAS is a competitive, merit-based scheme and requires applicants to carefully consider how the compute infrastructure and workflows will be applied. This webinar provides life science researchers with insights into what makes a strong NCMAS application, with a focus on the technical assessment, and how to design and present effective and efficient bioinformatic workflows for the various national compute facilities. It will be followed by a short Q&A session. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for biologists and bioinformaticians who wish to apply for the NCMAS 2022 allocation. Familiarity with HPC is recommended. For an overview of compute options available to Australian researchers and advice on how to match your bioinformatics needs to compute join our other webinar on[ Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/compute-resources). **Presenters:** Georgina Samaha and Dr Tracy Chew, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 20 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYscuigrDMjEtbGTLGmc3LZooB6zn16vKWv)** 2021-08-20 12:00:00 UTC 2021-08-20 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Online, Australia Online Australia Workflows Bioinformatics Australian Biocommons Melissa Burke melissa@biocommons.org.au [] Biologistsbioinformaticians 500 [] first_come_first_served HPCHigh performance computingWorkflowsNCMASBioinformatics
