  • An Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with R

    25 - 26 March 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    An Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-solving-biological-problems-with-r-870b40ac-8d7c-4931-8051-302644c93d9f [R](https://www.r-project.org/) is a highly-regarded, free, software environment for statistical analysis, with many useful features that promote and facilitate reproducible research. In this course, we give an introduction to the R environment and explain how it can be used to import, manipulate and analyse tabular data. After the course you should feel confident to start exploring your own dataset using the materials and references provided. The course website providing links to the course materials is [here](http://cambiotraining.github.io/r-intro/). Please note that although we will demonstrate how to perform statistical analysis in R, we will not cover the theory of statistical analysis in this course. Those seeking an in-depth explanation of how to perform and interpret statistical tests are advised to see the list of Related courses. Moreover, those with some programming experience in other languages (e.g. Python, Perl) might wish to attend the follow-on [Data Analysis and Visualisation in R](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-intR) course. This event is supported by the BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant (BB/P022766/1). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Data Science in Python

    8 - 9 April 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Data Science in Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-science-in-python-b180db0a-bf92-4472-afca-c37f0439641d This course covers concepts and strategies for working more effectively with Python with the aim of writing reusable code, using function and libraries. Participants will acquire a working knowledge of key concepts which are prerequisites for advanced programming in Python e.g. writing modules and classes. Note: this course is the continuation of the [Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with Python](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-python/); participants are expected to have attended the introductory Python course and/or have acquired some working knowledge of Python. This course is also open to Python beginners who are already fluent in other programming languages as this will help them to quickly get started in Python. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    An Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-solving-biological-problems-with-python-89205484-c706-4176-99d8-d50b31a66800 This course provides a practical introduction to the writing of Python programs for the complete novice. Participants are lead through the core aspects of Python illustrated by a series of example programs. Upon completion of the course, attentive participants will be able to write simple Python programs and customize more complex code to fit their needs. Course materials are available [here](http://pycam.github.io). Please note that the content of this course has recently been updated. This course now mostly focuses on core concepts including Python syntax, data structures and reading/writing files. Concepts and strategies for working more effectively with Python are now the focus of a new 2-days course, [Data Science in Python](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-dspyt/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • An Introduction to MATLAB for biologists

    17 - 18 June 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    An Introduction to MATLAB for biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-matlab-for-biologists-a9541e05-1954-46a3-9643-ac3655b1ee37 This course aims to give you an introduction to the basics of Matlab. During the two day course we will use a practical based approach to give you the confidence to start using Matlab in your own work. In particular we will show you how to write your own scripts and functions and how to use pre-written functions. We will also explore the many ways in which help is available to Matlab users. In addition we will cover basic computer programming in Matlab to enable you to write more efficient scripts. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
