  • Advanced Python for Biologists 2022

    4 - 15 July 2022

    Elixir node event
    Advanced Python for Biologists 2022 Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for making development faster and easier. The workshop will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. This event will be delivered virtually via Zoom & Slack, see more details on the further information tab. Please see here for a detailed syllabus of the course. 2022-07-04 09:00:00 UTC 2022-07-15 17:00:00 UTC Earlham Institute [] [] [] [] [] []
  • RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis

    12 - 14 July 2022

    Elixir node event
    RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis RNA-seq gene expression and pathway analysis - 12&14 July 2022 RNA-Seq (aka whole transcriptomic shotgun sequencing) aims to determine the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample at a given moment in time. This allows you to determine the level of expression of these genes and therefore compare these expressions across different sample groups, i.e. Differential Gene Expression (DGE). At the end of this course you will be able to align the transcriptomes of samples to a reference genome to determine gene expression levels. Following this you will be able to carry out Differential Gene Expression analysis to determine which genes are up and down regulated between sample groups. Places are restricted to UK-based researchers and only 20 places are available so please only register if you intend on attending. The workshop will be held over two days on Tuesday 12 and Thursday 14 July 2022, 10am-4pm, with registration opening 9.30am on Tuesday. The deadline to register is Monday 27 June, 2 weeks before the course. You will hear later that week whether you have been invited and will need to confirm your attendance.

  • 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 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] (** 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 [] [] 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
