    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. The establishment of such sexual dimorphism would result in changes in gene expression patterns in non-floral organs.

We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout. R is one of the leading programming languages in Data Science. It is widely used to perform statistics, machine learning, visualisations and data analyses. It is an open source programming language so all the software we will use in the course is free. This course is an introduction to R designed for participants with no programming experience. We will start from scratch by introducing how to start programming in R and progress our way and learn how to read and write to files, manipulate data and visualise it by creating different plots - all the fundamental tasks you need to get you started analysing your data. During the course we will be working with one of the most popular packages in R; tidyverse that will allow you to manipulate your data effectively and visualise it to a publication level standard.
