We will explore and search in online databases containing protein structure information. With the aid of the Yasara View program we will visualize the structure. Different hands-on exercises will allow you to compare the structure of homologues, to predict a structural model of proteins (without any structure information) and to find homologous structures. We will use online tools to quantify various interactions in the structures. ## Objectives * Get to know the data generated from protein structure determination experiments (high-resolution NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, ...) and where to get it. * Display protein structure data and compare structures, through the use of Yasara. * Create high-quality graphical representations of the structures. * Calculate the effect of mutations on the stability of your protein.

Probabilistic programming with (R)Stan http://tess.elixir-uk.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.

Introduction to Biopython http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/introduction-to-biopython-8ccf2441-bd7d-46f2-84f8-c2b123844a23 Biopython is the best-known Python library to process biological data. This training is aimed to empower you to use Biopython to make your research more efficient. The first day of the training is to give an overview of Biopython. You are going to start with your first steps in Biopython on the command line. Afterwards you will take a tour of the most important components: sequences, NCBI queries, BLAST, trees, and 3D structures. You will try each of these modules on practical examples. Please don't hesitate to ask questions about Python basics or particular data formats (e.g. XML or NGS data). The second day of the training is to broaden your perspective: What other features does the library have? How can you use the documentation effectively? What is Biopython not capable of? What can I do to visualize my data? Are there alternatives? If you have your own data that you would like to work on with Biopython in more detail, there is room for that. For us, the most important thing is to identify concrete Python modules and functions that help you to get your research done. Participants are encouraged to submit a description of their research topic and/or the questions they would like to answer with Biopython. Additionally, participants can bring their own data that they would like to process in Python to the training.

A tour of machine learning - classification http://tess.elixir-uk.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.

RNA-Seq analysis for differential expression http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/rna-seq-analysis-for-differential-expression We first perform quality control of the sequence reads to detect biases or leftover adaptors. We then map the reads to the reference genome with use of a transcript database model. We perform a detailed QC analysis of the mapping results to again detect potential problems. The mapping data is adjusted to compensate for artifacts like duplicates. The mappings are used to obtain transcript counts usable for differential expression. The count tables are merged and used to compute differential expression using several programs. We START a typical functional analysis of the obtained results similar to what is done for microarray data in order to exemplify handy tools and commercial alternatives. The code pieces used during the training are made available through our Wiki as well as detailed results and can be copied and adapted for own user needs with minimal edits. Key results have been saved to our server and can be downloaded to fully reproduce the training.

Image Ethics and Poster Design http://tess.elixir-uk.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.
