Galaxy (http://galaxyproject.org/) 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. This introductory course will cover Galaxy's basic functionality, simple data manipulation and visualization. This event is mostly targeted at first time users. Further information is available from the course website.

Bioinformatics: Introduction to Metabolomics Wed 19 Nov 2014   09:30 Finished

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the applications, laboratory equipment and online bioinformatic portals for metabolomics research. Further information is available.

The course will cover, at a basic level, building phylogenetic trees based on molecular sequence data. This will include the general context and uses of tree-building, choosing models of DNA and protein evolution, tree-building methods including distance, parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian MCMC, and confidence in results. Examples will be worked through using MEGA. Further information can be found here.

”To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.” - R.A. Fisher

Modern genomics technologies are able to deliver an unprecedented amount of data rapidly. However, without due care and attention early in the experimental process, such data are meaningless if they cannot adequately answer the intended research question. This course is aimed at those planning high-throughput genomics experiments and highlights the kinds of questions they should be asking themselves. We we also review key statistical concepts that underpin the design process and are referred to throughout further Bioinformatics training courses.

This course covers state-of-the-art tools and methods for system biology using biological data of different types. The participants will learn about the basis of modelling large-scale datasets as logic networks, as well as a more detailed approach using deterministic and stochastic modelling. At the end of the course the basis of three dimensional modelling of protein-protein interaction will be covered.

The course timetable can be found here.

Bioinformatics: Molecular Phylogenetics Wed 10 Dec 2014   09:00 Finished

The course will provide training for bench-based biologists to use molecular data to construct and interpret phylogenies, and test their hypotheses. Delegates will gain hands-on practice of using a variety of programs freely available online and commonly used in molecular studies, interspersed with some lectures.

Course timetable is available here.
