Introduction to Unix
A hands-on workshop covering the basics of the Unix/Linux command line interface. (more…)
Introduction to High Performance Computing
A hands-on workshop to introduce High Performance Computing (HPC) to the researcher. (more…)
Research Platform Services: R Introductory Workshop
The goal of this University of Melbourne workshop is to teach novice programmers to write code in R for data analysis. R is commonly used in many scientific disciplines for statistical analysis and its array of third-party packages. The emphasis of these materials is to give attendees a strong foundation in the fundamentals of R, and to teach them how to use the packages from Tidyverse to manipulate, analyse and visualise data.
Introduction to Galaxy and the Genomics Virtual Laboratory
This beginners tutorial will introduce Galaxy’s interface, tool use, histories, and get new users of the Genomics Virtual Laboratory up and running. (more…)
RNA-Seq Differential Gene Expression Analysis using Galaxy and the GVL
In this tutorial we cover the concepts of RNA-seq differential gene expression (DGE) analysis using a simulated dataset from the common fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. (more…)
Introduction to Galaxy Australia: Differential Gene Expression from Bacterial RNA-seq Data
This EMBL ABR workshop will introduce attendees to Galaxy Australia and its use in RNA-seq and differential gene expression (using bacterial data). A talk and demonstration will be followed by a hands-on tutorial.
Introduction to EBI tools
This workshop will give an overview of tools available on the EMBL-EBI site and how to locate tools of interest and training resources. It will include a detailed hands on tutorial covering a small number of resources in detail including the IntAct molecular interaction database, the Expression Atlas and Array express. (more…)
Containerised Bioinformatics: Docker and other tools for reproducible analysis
This beginners workshop will explain how containerisation can be used in bioinformatics analysis. (more…)
Introduction to long-read genome assembly
New genome sequencing technologies are producing much longer reads. This workshop combines an introductory presentation to introduce the theory of de novo genome assembly with hands-on practice. (more…)
UCSC Genome Browser: a full-featured genomic data system
Robert Kuhn, Associate Director of UCSC Genome Browser, Training and Outreach, Genome Browser licensing
This EMBL-ABR workshop provides hands-on instruction in the use of the UCSC Genome Browser, which is a widely used platform for interpreting many types of genome-wide data for a large number of organisms. In the context of human genetics, aggregated data from hundreds of projects are available, including short and long variants (SNPs and CNVs), benign and pathogenic variants from several large databases, and metagenomic data such as histone- and DNA modification. The Browser provides a consistent interface and gene models for mouse and more than 120 other animals.
The workshop will also demonstrate recently added features including display of exons only, display of discontinuous regions of the genome and the simultaneous, joint configuration of multiple wiggle files, such as are used to display RNA-seq data.
Prerequisites: Attendance at two introductory webinars (a recording will be made available afterwards for those who can’t attend at scheduled time)
– Webinar 1: Using the UCSC Genome Browser
– Webinar 2: UCSC Genome Browser Data
