  • Autumn School in Data Science: Machine learning applications for life sciences

    23 - 26 September 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Autumn School in Data Science: Machine learning applications for life sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/summer-school-in-biomedical-data-science-best-practices-for-single-cell-analysis-and-machine-learning-applications THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED! This Autumn 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. This event is sponsored by [Cambridge Big Data](https://www.bigdata.cam.ac.uk/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

  • From reads to disease variants

    21 - 25 October 2019

    Granada, Spain

    Elixir node event
    From reads to disease variants https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/from-reads-to-disease-variants Massive sequencing is becoming mainstream in many fields of biomedicine, including the clinical practice. However, the management of sequencing raw data to transform them into valuable biological information on variants and its further interpretation is still a complex task that requires of intensive computing and trained personnel. This course covers all the steps from the raw sequencing data, produced by the sequencers, to the obtention of lists of variants using the popular GATK software. The course is followed by a tutorial on the IVA, a powerful and intuitive web interface for the interactive prioritization and detection of disease variants. GATK workshops are designed to provide a comprehensive onboarding experience to new users, as well as access to more advanced understanding for users who are already familiar with the toolkit. 2019-10-21 09:15:00 UTC 2019-10-25 13:30:00 UTC Fundación Progreso y Salud (FPS), Broad Institute and the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB/ELIXIR-ES) Granada, Spain Granada Spain Fundación Progreso y Salud (FPS) [] mixed audienceGATK newbiesvariant discovery newbiesGATK expertsGATK users workshops_and_courses [] Variant callingVariant discoveryGATKdisease variantpriorizationgenomics
  • IAFIG-RMS: Bioimage analysis with Python

    9 - 13 December 2019

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    IAFIG-RMS: Bioimage analysis with Python https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/iafig-rms-bioimage-analysis-with-python The aim of this 5 days course is to develop motivated participants toward becoming independent BioImage Analysts in an imaging facility or research role. Participants will be taught theory and algorithms relating to bioimage analysis using Python as the primary coding language. Lectures will focus on image analysis theory and applications. Topics to be covered include: Image Analysis and image processing, Python and Jupyter notebooks, Visualisation, Fiji to Python, Segmentation, Omero and Python, Image Registration, Colocalisation, Time-series analysis, Tracking, Machine Learning, and Applied Machine Learning. The bulk of the practical work will focus on Python and how to code algorithms and handle data using Python. Fiji will be used as a tool to facilitate image analysis. Omero will be described and used for some interactive coding challenges. Research spotlight talks will demonstrate research of instructors/scientists using taught techniques in the wild. This event is organized in collaboration with the [Image Analysis Focused Interest Group](http://iafig-rms.org/) and is sponsored by the [Royal Microscopical Society](https://www.rms.org.uk/). The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
