    United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Systems biology: from large datasets to biological insight http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/systems-biology-from-large-datasets-to-biological-insight-d2a1656c-29ef-412d-9ddb-233bf139d811 This course covers the use of computational tools to extract biological insight from omics datasets. The content will explore a range of approaches - ranging from network inference and data integration to machine learning and logic modelling - that can be used to extract biological insights from varied data types. Together these techniques will provide participants with a useful toolkit for designing new strategies to extract relevant information and understanding from large-scale biological data. The motivation for running this course is a result of advances in computer science and high-performance computing that have led to groundbreaking developments in systems biology model inference. With the comparable increase of publicly-available, large-scale biological data, the challenge now lies in interpreting them in a biologically valuable manner. Likewise, machine learning approaches are making a significant impact in our analysis of large omics datasets and the extraction of useful biological knowledge. In-person course We plan to deliver this course in an in-person manner onsite at our training suite at EMBL-EBI, Hinxton.  Please be aware that we are continually evaluating the ongoing pandemic situation and, as such, may need to change the format of courses at short notice.

Ideal applicants should already have some experience (ideally 1-2 years) working with systems biology or related large-scale (multi-)omics data analyses. Applicants are expected to have a working knowledge of the Linux operating system and the ability to use the command line. Experience of using a programming language (i.e. Python) is highly desirable, and while the course will make use of simple coding or streamlined approaches such as Python notebooks, higher levels of competency will allow participants to focus on the scientific methodologies rather than the practical aspects of coding and how they can be applied in their own research. We recommend these free tutorials: Basic introduction to the Unix environment: www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix Introduction and exercises for Linux: https://training.linuxfoundation.org/free-linux-training Python tutorial: https://www.w3schools.com/python/ R tutorial: https://www.datacamp.com/courses/free-introduction-to-r Regardless of your current knowledge we encourage successful participants to use these to prepare for attending the course and future work in this area. Selected participants will also be sent materials prior to the course. These might include pre-recorded talks and required reading that will be essential to fully understand the course. 30 [] [] []

The practical elements of the course will take raw data from a proteomics experiment and analyse it. Participants will be able to go from MS spectra to identifying and quantifying peptides, and finally to obtaining lists of protein identifiers that can be analysed further using a wide range of resources. The final aim is to provide attendees with the practical bioinformatics knowledge they need to go back to the lab and process their own data when collected. 30 [] [] []
  • Mathematics of life: modelling molecular mechanisms

    12 - 16 September 2022

    United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Mathematics of life: modelling molecular mechanisms http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/mathematics-of-life-modelling-molecular-mechanisms-1b57c504-4751-4313-a48d-3ac2da24ab02 This course will provide participants with an introduction and hands-on training on modelling approaches, tools and resources used in systems biology as well as touch on network analysis. Computer models are increasingly used to understand the essential processes of biology. Researchers in academic institutions as well as the pharmaceutical industry use mathematical models to generate hypotheses on how complex biomolecular systems work. Modelling of biochemical pathways deregulated in disease conditions can offer mechanistic insights into the pathology, help to elucidate mechanisms behind drug action, and predict the dose required for treatment thus facilitating fundamental research and drug discovery. This course will provide a helpful brief introduction to key modelling concepts and hands on training to use popular tools and resources used in this scientific field.

  • Bioinformatics and functional genomics in zebrafish

    26 - 30 September 2022

    United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Bioinformatics and functional genomics in zebrafish http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/bioinformatics-and-functional-genomics-in-zebrafish Zebrafish are widely used to study development, toxicity and disease, and functional genomics is used throughout the field to identify new pathways and mechanisms and for comparison to other model systems and humans. In this hands-on course, participants will learn how to design functional genomics experiments, manage and analyse RNA-seq datasets from zebrafish, and compare results to other species. The aim of the course is to equip researchers with tools to carry out functional analysis and data visualisation of RNA-seq data that has already been mapped to the genome and been analysed for differential gene expression. The course will be relevant to researchers working on a wide range of topics and will use real datasets from our lab for hands-on analysis. Who is this course for? This course is aimed at researchers currently working with zebrafish and generating genomic and functional data. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists and faculty are encouraged to apply.  Little to no experience with RNA-seq analysis is required, however, applicants who have already generated an RNA-seq dataset from zebrafish samples relevant to their project will gain the most benefit from this course.  Some experience with R is beneficial. Please note this information is from the 2019 course edition and may change slightly for the course taking place in 2022.  2022-09-26 09:00:00 UTC 2022-09-30 00:00:00 UTC European Bioinformatics Institute Hinxton, United Kingdom European Bioinformatics Institute Hinxton Cambridge United Kingdom CB10 1SD [] [] [] 30 [] [] []
