Integrating publications into bioinformatics analysis http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/integrating-publications-into-bioinformatics-analysis Overview Research literature contains a wealth of information that can be extracted at scale using text-mining technologies. To make text-mining data available to a wider group of researchers, the publications database, Europe PMC, provides access to millions of text-mined annotations, such as genes and proteins, metabolites, species, mutations, phosphorylations, interactions, associations, and many more. This webinar will demonstrate how to access text-mined literature evidence programmatically, and how to supplement it with bibliographic information for advanced use cases. Two of such use cases, mapping of tropical disease research by author affiliation geoparsing and comparison of applicability of analytical chemistry techniques, will be introduced by invited speaker, Dr. Magnus Palmblad. This webinar was recorded on 2nd October 2019. It is best viewed in full-screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded below. Audience This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn about accessing text-mined literature evidence programmatically. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but undergraduate level knowledge of biology would be useful. See the EMBL-EBI training pages for a list of upcoming webinars.

Europe PMC: Services for academic authors http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/europe-pmc-services-for-academic-authors Researchers are often asked to maintain an up-to-date publication list, whether for job applications, tenure evaluations, or grant proposals. An easy way to do this is by using your ORCID iD and linking it to your published papers. An ORCID is a unique identifier - personalised number that is assigned to you when you register. By using your ORCID in addition to your name you can make sure that you are easily distinguishable from other researchers with the same name, keep track of your work through name changes, and even pull together different kinds of achievements, like grant awards, training, etc. This video shows how you can register for an ORCID, add your publications in three easy steps to build your digital CV, and how to get a personal author profile page that showcases your publications and citations.

Signalling Networks: From Data to Modelling http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/signalling-networks-from-data-to-modelling What is the course about? Signalling pathways and networks are very important to regulate and control cellular processes, cell fate, and their malfunctions often lead to diseases, such as cancer or diabetes. This course provides an introductory overview of the most useful resources and tools to investigate signalling pathways and networks, and also introduces basic approaches to model signalling events. The hands-on training will give a wide overview of tools and concepts related to signalling networks. What will I Learn? In this course you will learn how to use Cytoscape, where to find the most reliable signaling data, how to reconstruct, analyze and visualize a network. You will also learn how to develop your own models, mostly with logic modelling, what other modelling approaches exist, and how you can apply a model for your own research work.

Network Analysis with Cytoscape and PSICQUIC http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/network-analysis-with-cytoscape-and-psicquic This workshop will guide novice users through the process of analysing interaction networks – that allow biologists to map and characterise signalling pathways and to predict the function of unknown proteins. It will use practical examples in the popular open-source tool Cytoscape and the PSICQUIC client to access several protein interaction repositories at the same time to integrate protein data from different sources. Data from external sources will then be incorporated using different Cytoscape apps to perform clustering and GO enrichment analysis over our newly created networks.

Python @ TGAC - Python for Life Scientists: Managing biological data with Python http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/python-tgac-python-for-life-scientists-managing-biological-data-with-python Python is an object-oriented programming language that is ideal for biological data analysis. The course will start with very basic language concepts and instructions and will cover all the main language aspects, including variables, types, modules, functions, exceptions, control of flux, input, output, and classes. All the examples and practical sessions will focus on solving particular biological problems. In particular, examples and practical sessions will cover: Working with DNA and protein sequences Data retrieval from files and their manipulation Running applications, such as BLAST, locally and from a script Finding motifs in sequences Parsing Swiss-Prot files, PDB files, ENSEMBL records, blast output files, etc. Biopython will be also introduced and applied to some of the mentioned examples. The course is meant to be highly interactive and the students will continuously put theory into practice while learning. By the end of the course, the students will have a good understanding of Python basics and will have acquired the skills to manage any type of bioinformatics record and to run applications from scripts. Unix/Linux basic skills will be provided at the beginning of the course. Biopython, Python, Python biologists PhD post-docs 2015-07-14 2017-10-09
