TGAC Metagenomics: From bench to data analysis http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/tgac-metagenomics-from-bench-to-data-analysis This course took place at TGAC on 8-12 September 2014 What is the workshop about? A substantial part of the course will be devoted to bioinformatics resources and tools relevant in metagenomics data analysis. Participants will start at the bench and end in front of the computers for a problem solving activity utilizing the bioinformatics training they will be receiving during the course. What will it cover? To provide an overview of the main aspects involved in metagenomics from the bench to data analysis and discussion around the interpretation and actual examples of the impact and applications of metagenomics derived research Target Audience: This course is aimed at advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are doing or planning to start research in the field of metagenomics.

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) wikibook http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/next-generation-sequencing-ngs-wikibook Next generation sequencing (NGS) has become a commodity. With the commercialization of various affordable desktop sequencers, NGS will be of reach by more traditional wet-lab biologists . As seen in recent years, genome-wide scale computational analysis is increasingly being used as a backbone to foster novel discovery in biomedical research. However, as the quantities of sequence data increase exponentially, the analysis bottle-neck is yet to be solved. The current sources for NGS informatics are extremely fragmented. A novice could read review articles in various journals, follow discussion threads on forums such as Biostar[1] or SEQanswers [2], or sign up for courses organized by various institutes. Finding a centralized synthesis is much more difficult. Books are available, but the development of the field is so fast that book chapters risk being obsoleted by the time they are even printed. Moreover, cost for a handful of authors to continually update their text would presumably take up a lot of their schedule. Drawing from the obvious goodwill and community spirit displayed on discussion forums, and exploiting the collaborative tools made available by the Wikimedia foundation, we propose to initiate the editing of a collaborative WikiBook on NGS. Our plan is to collect a sufficient amount of text that people will be incentivized to contribute to it, essentially providing the same information as a forum but in a tidier form. Ultimately, our goal is to create a collective lab book that explains the key concepts and describes best practices in NGS. Parnell LD, Lindenbaum P, Shameer K et al.
