    University of Leicester Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Analysis Support Hub (BBASH) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/university-of-leicester-bioinformatics-and-biostatistics-analysis-support-hub-bbash The ongoing development of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies has meant that vast amounts of sequencing data is being produced, with researchers increasingly wanting the capability and knowledge to analyse their own data. Over the past 3 years BBASH has developed a number of 1, 2 and 3 day hands-on, NGS analysis workshops designed specificially to meet the needs of laboratory based researchers with little or no experience of NGS data analysis and command line tools. The workshops are held at the University of Leicester's state of the art College Court Conference Centre and consist of introductory presentations followed by practical sessions where delegates will gain hands-on experience of analysing and interpreting real data. The BBASH trainers are University of Leicester bioinformaticians or researchers with many years experience in bioinformatics and bioinformatics training, having delivered many workshops across the UK and Europe. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/086/original/BBASHlogo.png?1509536575

    Differential expression analysis on the Robinson, Delhomme et al. dataset. https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/differential-expression-analysis-on-the-robinson-delhomme-et-al-dataset A differential expression analysis conducted on the **[Robinson, Delhomme et al., dataset](https://microasp.upsc.se/ngs_trainers/Materials/blob/master/Datasets/Robinson-Delhomme-Populus-tremula-shows-no-evidence-of-sexual-dimorphism.md)**. The dataset has 17 samples and 2 important meta-data: the sample sex and year of collection. The goal is to test whether genes are involved in different processes based on the sex of the tree; _i.e._ is there a sexual dimorphism in _Populus tremula_ trees. It has indeed been hypothesized that male tree should be taller so as to spread their pollen further, whereas female would be more resistant to pests and diseases. The existing literature is contradictory, however it resulted from studies where plants were grown in controlled environment. In the present dataset, plant samples were collected in the wild, at a 2 years interval. The latter is a very important factor in the analysis as the 'year effect' is a strong confounding factor that hides the 'sex effect'. The present tutorial, hence, introduces a differential-expression analysis, but goes further by adressing confounding factors and how to _block_ them in an analysis. It is a good dataset to remind trainees that they should always be critical towards the conclusion they draw from their data.

Evolutionary theory suggests that males and females may develop sexually dimorphic phenotypic and biochemical traits concordant with each sex having different optimal strategies of resource investment to maximise reproductive success and fitness.

      Elixir node event
      Biological data analysis using the InterMine API https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/biological-data-analysis-using-the-intermine-api [InterMine](http://intermine.org/) is a freely available data integration and analysis system that has been used to create a suite of databases for the analysis of large and complex biological data sets. InterMine-based data analysis platforms are available for many organisms including mouse, rat, budding yeast, plants, nematodes, fly, zebrafish and more recently human. See [here](http://registry.intermine.org/) for a comprehensive list of InterMine databases. Genomic and proteomic data within InterMine databases includes pathways, gene expression, interactions, sequence variants, GWAS, regulatory data and protein expression. InterMine provides sophisticated query and visualisation tools both through a web interface and an extensive API; this course will focus on programmatic access to InterMine through its API and on running InterMine searches using Python, Perl and R scripts. The exercises will mainly use the fly, human and mouse databases, but the course is applicable to anyone working with data for which an InterMine database is available. This event is organised alongside a half day course on Biological data analysis using the InterMine User Interface. More information on this event are available [ https://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-intermine here].

The underlying philosophy of the course is to treat statistics as a practical skill rather than as a theoretical subject and as such the course focuses on methods for addressing real-life issues in the biological sciences using the R software package. In this course we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to multiple linear regression. The focus of the course is on practical implementation of these techniques and developing robust statistical analysis skills rather than on the underlying statistical theory. After the course you should feel confident to be able to select and implement common statistical techniques using R and moreover know when, and when not, to apply these techniques.

    • Extracting biological information from gene lists

      Cambridge, United Kingdom

      Elixir node event
      Extracting biological information from gene lists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/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. Course materials are available [here](https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/training.html#fagl).

With the increase in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic information there is a growing need to understand the metabolic phenotype that these genes and proteins ultimately control. The aim of this course is to provide an overview of metabolomics and its applications in life sciences, clinical and environmental settings. Over 2 days we will introduce different techniques used to extract metabolites and analyse samples to collect metabolomic data (such as HPLC or GC-based MS and NMR), present how to analyse such data, how to identify metabolites using online databases and how to map the metabolomic data to metabolic pathways. The course content will predominantly be based on analysing samples from model plant species such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the procedures are transferable to all other organisms, including clinical and environmental settings.
