    An Introduction to Machine Learning https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/an-introduction-to-machine-learning-bc63dfde-cb44-4637-aa9b-803474afc488 Machine learning gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. It encompasses a broad range of approaches to data analysis with applicability across the biological sciences. Lectures will introduce commonly used algorithms and provide insight into their theoretical underpinnings. In the practicals students will apply these algorithms to real biological data-sets using the R language and environment.

  • Transcriptome Analysis for Non-Model Organisms

    15 - 17 April 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Transcriptome Analysis for Non-Model Organisms https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/transcriptome-analysis-for-non-model-organisms RNA-Seq technology has been transformative in our ability to explore gene content and gene expression in all realms of biology, and de novo transcriptome assembly has enabled opportunities to expand transcriptome analysis to non-model organisms. This course provides an overview of modern applications of transcriptome sequencing and popular tools, and algorithms, for exploring transcript reconstruction and expression analysis in a genome-free manner. Attendees will perform quality assessment and upstream analysis of both Illumina and long reads single molecule sequencing data; the derived transcriptomes will be compared, annotated and used as reference for quantifying transcript expression, leveraging on Bioconductor tools for differential expression analysis. Additional methods will be explored for characterising the assembled transcriptome and revealing biological findings. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis

    2 - 3 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/chip-seq-and-atac-seq-analysis The primary aim of this course is to familiarise participants with the analysis of ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq data and provide hands-on training on the latest analytical approaches. The course starts with an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments for the detection of genome-wide DNA binding sites of transcription factors and other proteins. We first show data quality control and basic analytical steps such as alignment, peak calling and motif analysis, followed by practical examples on how to work with biological replicates and fundamental quality metrics for ChIP-seq datasets. On the second day, we then focus on the analysis of differential binding, comparing between different samples. We will also give an introduction to ATAC-seq data analysis for the detection of regions of open chromatin. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data

    23 - 24 May 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-4c7b80d7-237a-4b44-ba1b-d58016f87d47 Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq. The course website providing links to the course materials can be found [here](http://hemberg-lab.github.io/scRNA.seq.course/index.html). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • Image Analysis for Biologists

    24 - 26 June 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Image Analysis for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/image-analysis-for-biologists-5372065b-76aa-42d1-b91f-17ef321e2e8d This course will focus on computational methods for analysing cellular images and extracting quantitative data from them. The aim of this course is to familiarise the participants with computational image analysis methodologies, and to provide hands-on training in running quantitative analysis pipelines. On day 1 we will introduce principles of image processing and analysis, giving an overview of commonly used algorithms through a series of talks and practicals based on [Fiji](http://fiji.sc/), an extensible open source software package. On day 2, we will describe the open [Icy platform](http://icy.bioimageanalysis.org/) developed at the Institut Pasteur. Icy is a next-generation, user-friendly software offering powerful acquisition, visualisation, annotation and analysis algorithms for 5D bioimaging data, together with unique automation/scripting capabilities (notably via its graphical programming interface) and tight integration with existing software (e.g. ImageJ, Matlab, Micro-Manager). On day 3, we will cover time series processing and cell tracking using [TrackMate](http://imagej.net/TrackMate) and advanced image segmentation using [Ilastik](http://ilastik.org/). Additionally, in the afternoon we will run a study design and data clinic (sign up will be required) for participants that wish to discuss their experiments. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
