Image Ethics and Poster Design https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/image-ethics-and-poster-design The image ethics part handles on the theoretical aspects of image manipulation, the mistakes people make and how to avoid image fraud. VIB has guidelines for acceptable scientific image manipulations. Not all manipulations are scientifically correct. There are manipulations that fall within the scope of scientific misconduct, because they result in misrepresentation of the data. Such misrepresentation makes it impossible for others to interpret the data correctly, or worse, leads to conclusions that are not correct. The second part of this course deals with poster design. Scientific posters are a resume of a piece or timespan of research on one square meter of paper. They are best compared to slides for oral presentations, not a written document. Posters can’t convey detailed evidence like scientific articles, it must visualize a message on its own. When standing a meter away from a poster you hardly feel like reading much text, especially when the author/designer stands next to it. A poster must bring that message without requiring oral explanation, but with as little text as possible. Prerequisites Participants must have experience with GIMP and Inkscape.

Introduction to Linux for bioinformatics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/introduction-to-linux-for-bioinformatics This training is intended for all Linux novices who want to learn the basics of Linux without getting too much technical details. This hands-on training will show you how to effectively use Linux, a free operating system. Bioinformatics depends heavily on Linux-based computers and software. A lot of good scientific software is written specifically for Linux/Unix. Additionally, Linux has most popular programming languages (e.g.Python, Perl, C) already installed and ready to use! Data management happens swiftly with the dedicated text manipulation tools and file system properties. This training will teach you all you need to know to swiftly start using Linux, be it on the server of your department, or on your own computer (even if you're already running Windows or Mac OS). Prior to the training session, you will receive a poll to ask you your personal goals by following this training sesion. Depending on the outcome, the schedule will be adjusted.
