Spatial Prioritization with Marxan (MRXN01)

5 March 2018 - 9 March 2018
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course Overview: Marxan (Ian Ball and Hugh Possingham, 2000) is a software program used to support the design of marine and terrestrial reserves.  Marxan is now used by over 6000 people in 150 countries, making it the most the most widely used conservation planning tool in the world. In simple terms, Marxan analyzes scientific and geographic data to help users allocate space in ways that maximize values such as biodiversity, land value, cultural significance, and economic productivity whilst minimizing cost.…

Introduction to remote sensing and GIS for ecological applications (IRMS01)

21 May 2018 - 25 May 2018
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course Overview: The course will deal with different aspects related to the use of remote sensing and GIS in spatial ecology by using the Free and Open Source Software GRASS GIS coupled with R. By the end of this 5-day practical course, attendees will have the capacity to deal with ecological patterns and processes by using GIS and remote sensing algorithms. The increasing availability of open ecological and geographical data through networks such as the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF,…

Introduction to Python for biologists (IPYB05)

21 May 2018 - 25 May 2018
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course Overview: Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackle problems in their own research and (2) continue…

Precision Medicine Bioinformatics: From raw genome and transcriptome data to clinical interpretation (PMBI01)

16 July 2018 - 20 July 2018

Course Overview: Precision medicine refers to the use of prevention and treatment strategies that are tailored to the unique features of each individual and their disease. Analysis of high throughput genome and transcriptome data is major component of new large-scale precision medicine efforts. This analysis involves the identification of specific genome or transcriptome features that predispose an individual to disease, predict response to specific therapy, or influence diagnosis and prognosis. During this course (PMBI01), students will perform an end-to-end precision…

Eukaryotic metabarcoding (EUKB01)

23 July 2018 - 27 July 2018
Margam Discovery Centre, Magram Park
Port Talbot , SA13 2UA United Kingdom

Course Overview: Metabarcoding techniques are a set of novel genetic tools for assessing biodiversity of natural communities. Their potential applications include (but are not limited to) accurate water quality, soil diversity assessment, trophic analyses of digestive contents, early detection of non-indigenous species, studies of global ecological patterns and biomonitoring of anthropogenic impacts. This course will give an overview of metabarcoding procedures with an emphasis on practical problem-solving and hands-on work using analysis pipelines on real datasets. After completing the course,…
