Applying data standards to the harmonization of COVID-19 datasets from different sources

This video describes how public health genomics has played a key role in international responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how data standards are being used to harmonize data across jurisdictions for Canadian COVID-19 surveillance and outbreak investigations.

The video is aimed at anyone...

Useful ontologies for harmonizing cohort data

This video describes a community of practice for interoperable ontology building called the OBO Foundry, and highlights a number of well curated and maintained ontologies that are useful for annotating cohort data.

The video is aimed at anyone interested in data standardization and/or the...

Solutions for overcoming cohort data integration challenges using ontology: an introduction

Ontologies are collections of well-defined, hierarchical, controlled vocabulary, linked by logical relationships. This video introduces the concept and benefits of implementing ontologies for solving data integration issues when data is generated by different research groups.

Introduction to Multiple Sequence Alignments (MSAs) and Phylogenies

Slides used for teaching an introduction to phylogenies and MSAs in the context of phylogenies for the first day of a two-day course on MSAs at Cambridge University, in the UK, in December 2013. Course taught together with Holger Dinkel and Terri Attwood.

Interpreting Phylogenies

Content for a one-day course delivered in April 2013 at the University of Cambridge, together with Sarah Parks, Cilia Antoniou, and Adrian Friday.
Uses examples taken from several published papers to explore some of the assumptions and concepts we use when presenting and interpreting phylogenetic...
