  • Core Statistics using R (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    29 June - 14 July 2022

    Elixir node event
    Core Statistics using R (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/core-statistics-using-r-online-live-training-1bdf4c7a-2283-4160-b3e3-4a8e7385502d This [award winning](https://www.cctl.cam.ac.uk/teaching-prizes/tel-prize/2020) virtually delivered course is intended to provide a strong foundation in practical statistics and data analysis using the R software environment. 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.

We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. 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.

  • WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line

    24 August 2022

    WEBINAR: Getting started with whole genome mapping and variant calling on the command line http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/webinar-getting-started-with-whole-genome-mapping-and-variant-calling-on-the-command-line Life scientists are increasingly using whole genome sequencing (WGS) to ask and answer research questions across the tree of life. Before any of this work can be done, there is the essential but challenging task of processing raw sequencing data. Processing WGS data is a computationally challenging, multi-step process used to create a map of an individual’s genome and identify genetic variant sites. The tools you use in this process and overall workflow design can look very different for different researchers, it all depends on your dataset and the research questions you’re asking. Luckily, there are lots of existing WGS processing tools and pipelines out there, but knowing where to start and what your specific needs are is hard work, no matter how experienced you are. In this webinar we will walk through the essential steps and considerations for researchers who are running and building reproducible WGS mapping and variant calling pipelines at the command line interface. We will discuss how to choose and evaluate a pipeline that is right for your dataset and research questions, and how to get access to the compute resources you need. **Who the webinar is for** This webinar is intended for life scientists who are using and building whole genome sequencing mapping and variant calling pipelines. Some familiarity with the concepts of whole genome sequencing is recommended. **Presenter:** Dr Georgina Samaha, Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney **Date/time:** 24 August 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here] (https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ekHib2_2QYazaH06VFMPgQ)** 2022-08-24 12:00:00 UTC 2022-08-24 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Whole genome sequencing Sequencing Genomics Bioinformatics Workflows Australian Biocommons training@biocommons.org.au [] [] 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
