    Data Science School: Machine learning applications for life sciences (Online) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-science-school-machine-learning-applications-for-life-sciences THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED! PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. 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. This School aims to familiarise biomedical students and researchers with principles of Data Science. Focusing on utilising machine learning algorithms to handle biomedical data, it will cover: effects of experimental design, data readiness, pipeline implementations, machine learning in Python, and related statistics, as well as Gaussian Process models. Providing practical experience in the implementation of machine learning methods relevant to biomedical applications, including Gaussian processes, we will illustrate best practices that should be adopted in order to enable reproducibility in any data science application.

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

  • Extracting biological information from gene lists (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    15 October 2020

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Extracting biological information from gene lists (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists-online-live-training PLEASE NOTE that until further notice, due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus no courses will be offered as classroom based at the Training Facility. The Bioinformatics Team will be teaching the course live online in conjunction with the presenters. Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits, usually based around genes or transcripts. Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any interesting biological themes which turn up in the lists. This course looks at the various software packages, databases and statistical methods which may be of use in performing such an analysis. As well as being a practical guide to performing these types of analysis the course will also look at the types of artefacts and bias which can lead to false conclusions about functionality and will look at the appropriate ways to both run the analysis and present the results for publication. Course materials are available [here](https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/training.html#fagl).
