ObjTables Python tutorials https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/objtables-python-tutorials ObjTables is a toolkit for creating re-usable datasets that are both human and machine-readable, combining the ease of spreadsheets (e.g., Excel workbooks) with the rigor of schemas (classes, their attributes, the type of each attribute, and the possible relationships between instances of classes). ObjTables consists of a format for describing schemas for spreadsheets, numerous data types for science, a markup format for indicating the class and attribute represented by each table and column in a workbook, and software for using schemas to rigorously validate, merge, split, compare, and revision datasets. ObjTables is ideal for supplementary materials of journal article, as well as for emerging domains which need to quickly build new formats for new types of data and associated software with minimal effort. The tutorials provide a brief introduction to the ObjTables format for schemas for spreadsheets, the ObjTables markup syntax for spreadsheets, and the ObjTables Python package for parsing, validating, querying, editing, comparing, merging, splitting, revisioning, migrating, and analyzing spreadsheets.

Probabilistic programming with (R)Stan https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/probabilistic-programming-with-r-stan Probabilistic models describe how the observed data was generated, and what structure the signal and noise from potentially multiple sources may have. Many classical statistical models are special cases of probabilistic models with special modeling assumptions. Probabilistic models can be implemented, improved, and critizised in a flexible, explicit and transparent manner, and the analysis can be supported with prior information about the data. This 1-day course provides an introduction to Bayesian/probabilistic models. We will implement standard linear models based on the rstanarm package of the R statistical programming environment and readily available example data sets. The workshop is an ideal opportunity to familiarize yourself with the basic ideas in probabilistic modeling such as prior information, likelihood, model criticism and validation, as well as some of the available tools. At the end, you should be able to implement basic probabilistic models yourself, and understand their relative advantages and pitfalls compared to their classical alternatives.

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.

A tour of machine learning - classification https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest.

Deep Learning using a Convolutional Neural Network https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/deep-learning-using-a-convolutional-neural-network This course part focuses on a recent machine learning method known as deep learning that emerged as a promising disruptive approach, allowing knowledge discovery from large datasets in an unprecedented effectiveness and efficiency. It is particularly relevant in research areas, which are not accessible through modelling and simulation often performed in HPC. Traditional learning, which was introduced in the 1950s and became a data-driven paradigm in the 90s, is usually based on an iterative process of feature engineering, learning, and modelling. Although successful on many tasks, the resulting models are often hard to transfer to other datasets and research areas. Machine learning PhD students Post Docs
