Mon 7
Winter School - Bioinformatics Data Exploration for Biologists: An introduction to Data Exploration, Statistics and Reproducibility charged (1 of 5) [Places] 09:30 - 17:30 Bioinformatics Training Facility - Online LIVE Training (Time Zone = BST in Summer, GMT in Winter)

This 1-week course provides an introduction to data exploration of biological data. It provides a learning journey starting with learning about how we can automate processes that can be reproduced to analyse our biological data.

The course will begin with discussing what opportunities and challenges are associated with aspects of bioinformatics analyses. We will address a subset of them in greater detail in the central part of the course and provide time for participants to practise using some of the associated bioinformatics tools.

Focusing on solutions around handling biological data, we will cover programming in R, version control, statistical analyses, and data exploration. The R component of the course will cover from the foundations of programming in R to how to use some of the most popular R packages (dplyr and ggplot2) for data manipulation and visualisation. No prior R experience or previous knowledge of programming is required. At the end of the course we will address issues relating to reusability and reproducibility.

EMBL-EBI: Network Analysis with Cytoscape (Online) (1 of 2) [Full] 13:00 - 16:30 Bioinformatics Training Facility - Online LIVE Training (Time Zone = BST in Summer, GMT in Winter)

PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout.

This course provides an introduction to the basic theory and concepts of network analysis. Attendees will learn how to construct protein-protein interaction networks and subsequently use these to overlay large-scale data such as that obtained through RNA-Seq or mass-spec proteomics. The course will focus on giving attendees hands-on experience in the use of Cytoscape, an open source software platform for complex network analysis and visualization. The course will also access and analyse the data through Cytoscape apps, including IntAct.

Next Generation Sequencing Platforms and Bioinformatics Analysis (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) new (1 of 2) [Places] 09:00 - 12:30 Bioinformatics Training Facility - Online LIVE Training (Time Zone = BST in Summer, GMT in Winter)

PLEASE NOTE The Bioinformatics Team are presently teaching as many courses live online. We aim to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout.

Day 1 will introduce you to next generation sequencing technologies (NGS) and how they work, providers, common bioinformatics workflows, standardised file types, quality control. This session will include an introduction to Galaxy. Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive life science research that enables non-bioinformaticians to create, run, tune, and share their own bioinformatic analyses.

Day 2 will be hands-on practicals on using Galaxy to explore sequencing quality control, before and after removal of low quality samples. This forms the core of all NGS analyses and this day will conclude with how this data pipes into gene expression studies, variant calling and genome assemblies.
