  • Core Statistics using R (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    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.

    An Introduction to Machine Learning (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/an-introduction-to-machine-learning-online-live-training-f0d82528-636b-4d41-856d-71a7ec0f8672 Machine learning gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. It encompasses a broad range of approaches to data analysis with applicability across the biological sciences. Lectures will introduce commonly used algorithms and provide insight into their theoretical underpinnings. In the practicals students will apply these algorithms to real biological data-sets using the R language and environment.

  • Introduction to working with UNIX and bash (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING)

    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-b013c4ea-fc73-42d1-9ac5-b11435801e1b PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. 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.

    High Performance Computing: An Introduction (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) http://tess.elixir-uk.org/events/high-performance-computing-an-introduction-online-live-training-2e94ddaf-6071-4664-9d5d-619b49b20888 PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching many courses live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We continue to monitor advice from the UK government and the University of Cambridge on resuming in-person teaching back in the training room. Have you heard about High Performance Computing, but are not sure what it is or whether it is relevant for your work? Would you like to use a HPC, but are not sure where to start? Are you using your personal computer to run computationally demanding tasks, which take long and slow down your work? Do you need to use software that runs on Linux, but don't have access to a Linux computer? If any of these questions apply to you, then this course might be for you! Knowing how to work on a High Performance Computing system is an essential skill for applications such as bioinformatics, big-data analysis, image processing, machine learning, parallelising tasks, and other high-throughput applications. In this course we will cover the basics of High Performance Computing, what it is and how you can use it in practice. This is a hands-on workshop, which should be accessible to researchers from a range of backgrounds and offering several opportunities to practice the skills we learn along the way. As an optional session for those interested, we will also introduce the (free) HPC facilities available at Cambridge University (the course is not otherwise Cambridge-specific).

It will also benefit those who find themselves using their personal computers to run computationally demanding analysis/simulations and would like to learn how to adapt these to run on a HPC.Graduate studentsPostdocs and Staff members from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutions or individuals workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
