Extracting biological information from gene lists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/extracting-biological-information-from-gene-lists 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.

Sample size estimation https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/sample-size-estimation Power analysis is a method to estimate the samples sizes needed to detect statistical effects with high probability. This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of power analysis and goes through the variables for power calculation. It also addresses the issues associated with technical and biological replicates. The program is intended for people who have no prior knowledge of power. Basic statistical knowledge is extremely useful but prior attendance on a statistics course is not compulsary. Power analysis, Sample size, Babraham Institute

An Introduction to Unix https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/an-introduction-to-unix Increasing amounts of bioinformatics work is done in a command line unix environment. Most large scale processing applications are written for unix and most large scale compute environments are also based on this. This course provides an introduction to the concepts of unix and provides a practical introduction to working in this environment. Internally we link this course to a more specific course illustrating the use of our internal cluster environment and this part of the course could be adapted for other sites with different compute infrastructure.
