    Metabolomics Data Processing and Data Analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/metabolomics-data-processing-and-data-analysis-3855a7d7-cf12-44e8-8d22-d6c252487ce0 This online course explores the tools and approaches that are used to process and analyse metabolomics data. You will investigate the challenges that are typically encountered in the analysis of metabolomics data, and provide solutions to overcome these problems. The materials in this course are delivered via the FutureLearn platform over a four week period, with an estimated learning time of four hours per week. Each week you will work through a number of steps to complete the learning material. A step may include a short video, an article, an exercise with step-by-step instructions, a test or a discussion to interact with your peer or the educators. All of the course material is uploaded to the FutureLearn platform so that you can complete the steps at a convenient time for you. We (the educators) support your learning via social discussions where you will be able post questions and comments to the team of educators and the other learners on the course throughout the 4 weeks. In the final week of the course there is a live question and answer session with the entire team of educators. You will be provided with information to join the question and answer session via the FutureLearn platform and you can post questions in advance. The question and answer session will be recorded and a video uploaded to the FutureLearn platform. If you do not have time to complete the course during the 4-week period you will retain access to the course material to revisit, as you are able. 2020-10-12 09:00:00 UTC 2020-11-06 23:59:00 UTC Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre Bioinformatics Metabolomics University of Birmingham bmtc@contacts.bham.ac.uk [] ScientistsPhD studentsMaster students workshops_and_coursesmeetings_and_conferences [] MetabolomicsData processingData analysis
  • DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop

    2 - 5 November 2020

    Berlin, Germany

    DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/dna-methylation-data-analysis-workshop Advance your epigenetics research with NGS methods. In a nutshell - Learn how bisulfite sequencing works - Understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome - Perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses) - Use shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines - Visualize results (ready-to-publish) The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics. By the end of this workshop the participants will: - be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina - understand how bisulfite sequencing works - be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data - understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome - be familiar with common data formats and standards - know relevant tools for data processing - automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines - perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses) - plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish) - be able to reuse all analyses 2020-11-02 09:00:00 UTC 2020-11-05 17:00:00 UTC ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH PC-COLLEGE Berlin, 78, Stresemannstraße, Berlin, Germany PC-COLLEGE Berlin, 78, Stresemannstraße Berlin Germany 10963 Sequencing Sequence analysis Bioinformatics [] ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH Sternwartenstr. 29 D-04103 Leipzig Germany Email: events@ecSeq.com [] BiologistsBiologists, Genomicists, Computer ScientistsMolecular BiologistsPhD studentspost-docsPathologistsbioinformaticians 25 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served EpigeneticsDNA MethylationBisulfite-Seq

We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout. How much data would you lose if your laptop was stolen? Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named 'final_final_versionEDITED'? Have you ever struggled to import your spreadsheets into R? Would you be able to write a Data Management Plan as part of a grant proposal? As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications. Whether you create, receive or collect data, you will certainly need to organise it at some stage of your project. This workshop will provide an overview of some basic principles on how we can work with data more effectively. We will discuss the best practices for research data management and organisation so that our research is auditable and reproducible by ourselves, and others, in the future.

It provides a learning journey starting with learning about how we can automate processes that can be reproduced to analyse our biological data. The course will begin with discussing what opportunities and challenges are associated with aspects of bioinformatics analyses. We will address a subset of them in greater detail in the central part of the course and provide time for participants to practise using some of the associated bioinformatics tools. Focusing on solutions around handling biological data, we will cover programming in R, version control, statistical analyses, and data exploration. The R component of the course will cover from the foundations of programming in R to how to use some of the most popular R packages (dplyr and ggplot2) for data manipulation and visualisation. No prior R experience or previous knowledge of programming is required. At the end of the course we will address issues relating to reusability and reproducibility.
