Containers & Workflow pipelines workshop http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/containers-workflow-pipelines-workshop The first day (20 May 2021) is dedicated to Containers (Docker & Singularity) which are great tools for code portability and reproducibility of your analysis. You will learn how to use containers and how to build a container from scratch, share it with others and how to re-use and modify existing containers. After an extensive explanation on Docker containers, at the end of the first day, Singularity will be highlighted as well. On the second day (27 May 2021), you will learn how to use Nextflow for building scalable and reproducible bioinformatics pipelines and running them on a personal computer, cluster and cloud. Starting from the basic concepts we will build our own simple pipeline and add new features with every step, all in the new DSL2 language. Containers, Nextflow bioinformaticians

Introduction to Protein Structure Analysis http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/introduction-to-protein-structure-analysis This training session will provide the basics of protein structure determination and how this information is stored in databases. We will explore and search in online databases containing protein structure information. With the aid of the Yasara View program we will visualize the structure. Different hands-on exercises will allow you to compare the structure of homologues, to predict a structural model of proteins (without any structure information) and to find homologous structures. We will use online tools to quantify various interactions in the structures. ## Objectives * Get to know the data generated from protein structure determination experiments (high-resolution NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, ...) and where to get it. * Display protein structure data and compare structures, through the use of Yasara. * Create high-quality graphical representations of the structures. * Calculate the effect of mutations on the stability of your protein.

Probabilistic programming with (R)Stan http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/probabilistic-programming-with-r-stan Probabilistic models describe how the observed data was generated, and what structure the signal and noise from potentially multiple sources may have. Many classical statistical models are special cases of probabilistic models with special modeling assumptions. Probabilistic models can be implemented, improved, and critizised in a flexible, explicit and transparent manner, and the analysis can be supported with prior information about the data. This 1-day course provides an introduction to Bayesian/probabilistic models. We will implement standard linear models based on the rstanarm package of the R statistical programming environment and readily available example data sets. The workshop is an ideal opportunity to familiarize yourself with the basic ideas in probabilistic modeling such as prior information, likelihood, model criticism and validation, as well as some of the available tools. At the end, you should be able to implement basic probabilistic models yourself, and understand their relative advantages and pitfalls compared to their classical alternatives.

Image Ethics and Poster Design http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/image-ethics-and-poster-design The image ethics part handles on the theoretical aspects of image manipulation, the mistakes people make and how to avoid image fraud. VIB has guidelines for acceptable scientific image manipulations. Not all manipulations are scientifically correct. There are manipulations that fall within the scope of scientific misconduct, because they result in misrepresentation of the data. Such misrepresentation makes it impossible for others to interpret the data correctly, or worse, leads to conclusions that are not correct. The second part of this course deals with poster design. Scientific posters are a resume of a piece or timespan of research on one square meter of paper. They are best compared to slides for oral presentations, not a written document. Posters can’t convey detailed evidence like scientific articles, it must visualize a message on its own. When standing a meter away from a poster you hardly feel like reading much text, especially when the author/designer stands next to it. A poster must bring that message without requiring oral explanation, but with as little text as possible. Prerequisites Participants must have experience with GIMP and Inkscape.

A tour of machine learning - classification http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/a-tour-of-machine-learning-classification Machine learning has become ubiquitous in biotechnology (as in many other fields), fueled largely by the increasing availability and amount of data. Learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing examples. Typical applications are diagnoses/prognoses, gene/protein annotation, drug design, image recognition, text mining and many others. However, building successful machine learning models requires a substantial amount of “black art” that is hard to find in textbooks. This course is an interactive Jupyter Notebook (Python) that will teach you how to build successful machine learning models. No background in machine learning is assumed, just a keen interest.

Introduction to Biopython http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/introduction-to-biopython-8ccf2441-bd7d-46f2-84f8-c2b123844a23 Biopython is the best-known Python library to process biological data. This training is aimed to empower you to use Biopython to make your research more efficient. The first day of the training is to give an overview of Biopython. You are going to start with your first steps in Biopython on the command line. Afterwards you will take a tour of the most important components: sequences, NCBI queries, BLAST, trees, and 3D structures. You will try each of these modules on practical examples. Please don't hesitate to ask questions about Python basics or particular data formats (e.g. XML or NGS data). The second day of the training is to broaden your perspective: What other features does the library have? How can you use the documentation effectively? What is Biopython not capable of? What can I do to visualize my data? Are there alternatives? If you have your own data that you would like to work on with Biopython in more detail, there is room for that. For us, the most important thing is to identify concrete Python modules and functions that help you to get your research done. Participants are encouraged to submit a description of their research topic and/or the questions they would like to answer with Biopython. Additionally, participants can bring their own data that they would like to process in Python to the training.

Introduction to Linux for bioinformatics http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/introduction-to-linux-for-bioinformatics This training is intended for all Linux novices who want to learn the basics of Linux without getting too much technical details. This hands-on training will show you how to effectively use Linux, a free operating system. Bioinformatics depends heavily on Linux-based computers and software. A lot of good scientific software is written specifically for Linux/Unix. Additionally, Linux has most popular programming languages (e.g.Python, Perl, C) already installed and ready to use! Data management happens swiftly with the dedicated text manipulation tools and file system properties. This training will teach you all you need to know to swiftly start using Linux, be it on the server of your department, or on your own computer (even if you're already running Windows or Mac OS). Prior to the training session, you will receive a poll to ask you your personal goals by following this training sesion. Depending on the outcome, the schedule will be adjusted.
