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.

RNA-seq data analysis: from raw reads to differentially expressed genes http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/rna-seq-data-analysis-from-raw-reads-to-differentially-expressed-genes This course material introduces the central concepts, analysis steps and file formats in RNA-seq data analysis. It covers the analysis from quality control to differential expression detection, and workflow construction and several data visualizations are also practised. The material consists of 10-30 minute lectures intertwined with hands-on exercises, and it can be accomplished in a day. As the user-friendly Chipster software is used in the exercises, no prior knowledge of R/Bioconductor or Unix ir required, and the course is thus suitable for everybody. Our book RNA-seq data analysis: A practical approach (CRC Press) can be used as background reading. The following topics and analysis tools are covered: 1. Introduction to the Chipster analysis platform 2. Quality control of raw reads (FastQC, PRINSEQ) 3. Preprocessing (Trimmomatic, PRINSEQ) 4. Alignment to reference genome (TopHat2) 5. Alignment level quality control (RseQC) 6. Quantitation (HTSeq) 7. Experiment level quality control with PCA and MDS plots 8.

Bioinformatics Introductory Module http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/bioinformatics-introductory-module This Bioinformatics Introductory Module for self-study was designed for future students of the  Molecular Mechanisms of Disease (MMD) master’s program at Radboud University Medical Centre. To level out the starting differences in bioinformatics knowledge between this incoming heterogeneous group of students as much as possible, we have designed an introductory course module that should allow them – via self study and hands-on exercises – to acquire sufficient basic bioinformatics knowledge. Keywords: Databases, Sequence homology, Phylogeny, Protein structure, Microarrays, Proteomics, Expression analysis, Protein-protein interaction, Cluster analysis, protein modelling, networks, bioinformatics. Anticipated time needed to complete the module: 40 hours.  Answers for all the exercises are available on request. Of course you do need internet connection to perform the hands-on exercises. There is no need, however, to install programs onto your computer and also low-speed data transfer should be sufficient. All literature that is cited and used throughout the module was taken from open access sources.   Bioinformatics, Genome browsing, Genomics, Protein structure Life Science Researchers Master students 2014-06-27 2017-10-09

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.
