  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data (IN PERSON)

    12 - 26 September 2022

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data (IN PERSON) http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-in-person Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq. The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.

    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. 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.

    Data Manipulation and Visualisation http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/data-manipulation-and-visualisation-d151fa05-1d08-4660-acce-e75424241846 As the data generated from high-throughput biological experiments increase in volume and become more complex, the ability to manipulate and visualise data is a highly-desirable skill in academia and industry. Whilst familiar tools such as Excel allow basic manipulations, they are often not scalable to larger datasets and are not ameanable to reproducible analysis. R is a highly-regarded, free, software environment for statistical analysis, with many useful features that promote and facilitate reproducible research. 2022-09-19 12:00:00 UTC 2022-09-23 16:00:00 UTC Barber House Boardroom (Sheffield), or ONLINE, Sheffield, or online, United Kingdom Barber House Boardroom (Sheffield), or ONLINE Sheffield, or online United Kingdom S10 2HQ [] bioinformatics-core@sheffield.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    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 [] [] []

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. There are three core goals for this course: # Use R confidently for statistics and data analysis # Be able to analyse datasets using standard statistical techniques # Know which tests are and are not appropriate R is an open source programming language so all of the software we will use in the course is free. In this course, we explore classical statistical analysis techniques starting with simple hypothesis testing and building up to linear models and power analyses. 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.

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/introduction-to-working-with-unix-and-bash-online-live-training-25ff634e-07af-4a19-9909-85054bb3b920 Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands. Building on the techniques learnt so far, we will then construct bash scripts combining the commands and structures already learnt into more complex, reusable tools. We will look at how we can apply these scripts to common problems faced in UNIX environments such as: communicating with remote servers; managing custom software installations and integrating these tools into our simple pipelines. This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.

  • Data exploration with Python 2022

    21 November - 2 December 2022

    Elixir node event
    Data exploration with Python 2022 http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/data-exploration-with-python-2022 Much of the popularity of Python stems from the availability of high quality libraries of existing code that we can use for our own projects. Libraries ("packages", in Python terminology) are even more useful when they are designed to work together. For scientific programming, we are lucky to have a collection of mature packages which work together to form a stack: numpy for numerical processing pandas for reading, cleaning and processing tabular data files matplotlib as a low-level charting library seaborn as a high-level charting library for rapid dataset exploration through visualization In this course we will learn how to use these packages together to quickly explore large biological datasets, find meaningful patterns in the data, and present our results clearly. We will focus on the high level packages - pandas and seaborn - as this will allow us to do the most work with the smallest amount of code. By concentrating on just two packages for an entire course, we will be able to cover a large part of what these tools can do. 2022-11-21 09:00:00 UTC 2022-12-02 12:30:00 UTC Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane, United Kingdom Earlham Institute (EI), Colney Lane Norfolk United Kingdom [] training@earlham.ac.uk [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
