Initiation to R programming and descriptive statistics

This course material was designed with the on-site teaching program for PhD students at Institut Pasteur in mind.
It teaches the basics of R programming and descriptive statistics, and is hopefully detailed enough to be usable for self-study, with some rough guidelines given...

Data processing with R tidyverse

The four day course provides a complete introduction to data science in R with the tidyverse. The course will not go deep into statistics but rather getting data ready, some exploratory analysis, visualization and handling models.

Preparing data takes up to 90% of the time spent in analysis...

Finding Mutations in DNA and Proteins (Bioinformatics VI)

In previous courses in the Specialization, we have discussed how to sequence and compare genomes. This course will cover advanced topics in finding mutations lurking within DNA and proteins.

In the first half of the course, we would like to ask how an individual's genome differs from the...

Genome Sequencing (Bioinformatics II)

You may have heard a lot about genome sequencing and its potential to usher in an era of personalized medicine, but what does it mean to sequence a genome?

Biologists still cannot read the nucleotides of an entire genome as you would read a book from beginning to end. However, they can read...

Genomic Data Science and Clustering (Bioinformatics V)

How do we infer which genes orchestrate various processes in the cell? How did humans migrate out of Africa and spread around the world? In this class, we will see that these two seemingly different questions can be addressed using similar algorithmic and machine learning techniques arising from...

Comparing Genes, Proteins, and Genomes (Bioinformatics III)

Once we have sequenced genomes in the previous course, we would like to compare them to determine how species have evolved and what makes them different.

In the first half of the course, we will compare two short biological sequences, such as genes (i.e., short sequences of DNA) or proteins. We...

Molecular Evolution (Bioinformatics IV)

In the previous course in the Specialization, we learned how to compare genes, proteins, and genomes. One way we can use these methods is in order to construct a "Tree of Life" showing how a large collection of related organisms have evolved over time.

In the first half of the course, we will...
