  • Introduction to identifying and characterising somatic variants

    10 May 2019

    Sheffield, United Kingdom

    Introduction to identifying and characterising somatic variants https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-identifying-and-characterising-somatic-variants This course covers state-of-the-art and best-practice tools for the analysis of genomes. We describe, and give hands-on experience of, the entire analysis workflow from raw data generated by a sequencing machine to deriving variant calls (e.g. Single Nucleotide Variants) that are ready for downstream analysis, interpretation and prioritisation. We will describe the steps involved to go from sequencing library to a prioritised, clinically-relevant list of DNA variants. Practical sessions will use the user-friendly Galaxy interface (https://usegalaxy.org/) to demonstrate tasks such as alignment, quality control, variant-calling and annotation. 2019-05-10 08:30:00 UTC 2019-05-10 16:00:00 UTC Pam Liversidge Design Studio 1 - D06, Sheffield, United Kingdom Pam Liversidge Design Studio 1 - D06 Sheffield United Kingdom S1 3JD [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

It also includes comparison to the predecessor interface OpenACC v2. The workshop will also demonstrate how to use the Cray Programming Environment tools to identify application bottlenecks, facilitate the porting, provide accelerated performance feedback and to tune the ported applications. The Cray scientific libraries for accelerators will be presented, and interoperability of the directives approach with these and with CUDA will be demonstrated. Through application case studies and tutorials, users will gain direct experience of using both OpenMP and OpenACC directives in realistic applications. Users may also bring their own codes to discuss with Cray specialists or begin porting.

  • Uncertainty quantification @MdlS

    27 - 29 May 2019

    Uncertainty quantification @MdlS https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/uncertainty-quantification-mdls-8ab27eae-4c4e-457e-bc99-0ccf6ee93b78 Uncertainty in computer simulations, deterministic and probabilistic methods for quantifying uncertainty, OpenTurns software, Uranie softwareContentUncertainty quantification takes into account the fact that most inputs to a simulation code are only known imperfectly. It seeks to translate this uncertainty of the data to improve the results of the simulation. This training will introduce the main methods and techniques by which this uncertainty propagation can be handled without resorting to an exhaustive exploration of the data space. HPC plays an important role in the subject, as it provides the computing power made necessary by the large number of simulations needed.The course will present the most important theoretical tools for probability and statistical analysis, and will illustrate the concepts using the OpenTurns software.Course OutlineDay 1- General methodology for handling uncertainty, presentation of a case study- Fundamental notions from probability and statistics- General introduction to the software tools: OpenTurns and Uranie Day 2- Statistical estimation: parametric and non-parametric, testing- Modeling with non-numerical data: expert judgement, entropy- Central trend: local and gloal sensitivity indices (design of experiments, sampling, Sobol indices)- computing the probability of rare events, simulation methods, FORM/SORM Day 3- Distributed computing: parallel solvers, batch jobs submission on a parallel computer, implementation within OpenTurns / Salomeand Uranie- Introduction to meta-model building, least-squares, other response surface, Kriging, neural networks- Introduction to polynomial chaosLearning outcomesLearn to recognize when uncertainty quantification can bring new insight to simulations.Know the main tools and techniques to investigate uncertainty propagation.Gain familiarity with modern tools for actually carrying out the computations in a HPC context.PrerequisitesBasic knowledge of probability will be useful, as will a basic familiarity with Linux. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/815/ 2019-05-27 07:30:00 UTC 2019-05-29 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    Workshop at ESHG https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-at-eshg In this workshop, we will introduce Open Targets Genetics Portal as part of the Open Targets ecosystem, highlighting variant-centric statistical evidence for prioritizing candidate causal variants at trait-associated loci, and identifying potential drug targets. We will present POSTGAP, a pipeline which merges genetic associations curated from literature with functional genomics, epigenetic and expression data (e.g., eQTL, promoter capture Hi-C, DNase hypersensitivity sites, regulatory elements) to resolve association signals at a locus and link each variant to its target gene(s) using a single evidence score. The portal also incorporates pre-computed fine-mapping at trait-associated loci across hundreds of UK Biobank phenotypes as well as cross-trait colocalization, furthering drug repurposing opportunities. This workshop will enable you to effectively use Open Targets Genetics to gain biological insight, prioritize genes, and inform target decision-making. Intended Audience: Attendees interested in the translational application of genetics and genomics with an emphasis on the identification of target genes of trait-associated loci, drug target identification, prioritisation and repurposing. Participants should bring their laptops for exploration of the Open Targets Genetics Portal in situ. 2019-06-15 09:00:00 UTC 2019-06-15 00:00:00 UTC Gothenburg, Sweden Gothenburg Sweden [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] Open Targets
