Post Course: Lots more courses @ Edinburgh Genomics

Dear All

We're excited to announce a raft of new and exciting bioinformatics courses running here in Edinburgh this Summer and Autumn.

We have a range of courses now available for booking from one-day through to a week, and from complete beginner to advanced user level.

We hope you find something that will help you progress your research to the next level!

...

Metagenomics and Metabarcoding - 28-30 August 2019 *BRAND NEW*

This course focuses on the computational methods used to analyse the wealth of data produced by shotgun metagenomics and metabarcoding (Amplicon targeted metagenomics) studies.

This course will provide you insights in to DNA metabarcoding analyses, from preprocessing and quality control of the raw data to the construction of OTU/ASV tables, taxon assignment, diversity analysis and differential abundance analysis using QIIME2. Further, you will also learn about methods to generate the reference-based profile to generate microbial community features like taxonomic abundances or functional profile and how to identify the ones characterizing differences between two biological conditions.

You will then be introduced to methods used for assembly from metagenomics samples. Attendees will use tools to assemble metagenome assembled genomes (MAGs) from short read and long read data. We will discuss the different approaches and tools available for these assemblies and the benefits and limitations of each options.

Tutors: Urmi Trivedi, Bioinformatician, Edinburgh Genomics; Amanda Warr, Research Geneticist, Roslin Institute; Rob Stewart, Bioinformatician, Roslin Institute; Albert Phillimore, Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh (guest lecturer); Nathan Medd, Training and Outreach Manager, Edinburgh Genomics (demonstrator)

Registration fee: £500 (including lunches and refreshments)

Where: Peter Wilson Building, The Kings Buildings, Edinburgh

Network Analysis of High Dimensional Biological Data - 6th September 2019
*Following the Edinburgh Genome Science Conference (http://genomescience.co.uk/)*

This one day practical course is designed to introduce participants to the joys of networks, focusing on their application to biological research and in particular, their use in the analysis of complex data.

The course will start by introducing the principles of networks and their use as a generic medium to understand the relationships between entities. It will then introduce participants to a new analysis platform, Graphia, going through the basics of its functionality for network visualisation and navigation, and demonstrating the tool‘s use in the exploration of large networks of protein interaction data and phylogenetic trees.

Tutor: Prof Tom Freeman, Roslin Institute & Kajeka

Registration fee:
£45 (including lunch and refreshments)

Where: James Clerk Maxwell Building, The Kings Buildings, Edinburgh.

Bioinformatics for Genomics - 9-13 September 2019

This is a week-long introductory workshop that combines our popular ‘Linux for Genomics’, ‘R for Genomics’, and ‘Introduction to RNA-seq Data Analysis’, taught by Edinburgh Genomics’ Bioinformaticians. By the end of the five days, you will be: comfortable on the Linux command line; able to view, filter and manipulate large text files; able to write pipelines to perform certain bioinformatics tasks; familiar with and able to use the basics of R; confident using several data QC and processing tools; able to generate gene counts and differential expression statistics; and prepared to put it all together with visualization, interpretation, and gene set analysis.

Tutors: Urmi Trivedi, Bioinformatician, Edinburgh Genomics; Frances Turner, Bioinformatician, Edinburgh Genomics; Tim Booth, Analyst - Developer, Edinburgh Genomics; Nathan Medd, Training and Outreach Manager, Edinburgh Genomics

Registration fee: £750 (including lunches and refreshments)

Where: Peter Wilson Building, The Kings Buildings, Edinburgh.

Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake - 30 September - 01 October 2019 *NEW*

Are you running data analysis workflows? Want to step up to the next level of organisation and efficiency?

Save yourself time, increase replicability, and master your analysis with Snakemake.

The Snakemake workflow system provides effective solutions to organise your tasks, document and share your methods, make effective use of compute resources, and handle unexpected errors in processing.

Edinburgh Genomics are offering a two-day course that will have you confident in using Snakemake to tackle complex workflow problems and in your day-to-day research.

Tutors: Tim Booth, Analyst - Developer, Edinburgh Genomics; Hywel Dunn-Davis, Analyst - Developer, Edinburgh Genomics

Registration fee:
£400 (including lunches and refreshments)

Where: Ashworth Building, The Kings Buildings, Edinburgh.
