R Package design and development and reproducible data science for biologists (RPKG01)

16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course overview: This course will help students develop professional R coding skills by leading them through the process of making reproducible, sharable and easily communicated software centered around developing fully functional R packages and extensions. In addition to teaching traditional uses of R packages to share quantitative tools, we’ll also show how R packages can be easily developed for individual research projects to share reproducible results. To develop skills, we’ll build several R packages full of useful and general utility…

The Practice of RADseq: Population Genomics Analysis with Stacks (RDSQ01)

23 September 2019 - 27 September 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will focus on population genomics analysis using Stacks version 2 software. The course will include a discussion of RAD sequencing, including the different protocols and the sequencing platforms used. We will focus on the key aspects of the molecular protocol to ensure a successful data analysis. The remainder of the course will include an introduction to UNIX followed by practice with RADseq data analysis. We will focus first on how the major Stacks algorithms work, followed…

Introduction to Bioinformatics using Linux (IBUL04)

30 September 2019 - 4 October 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to…

Geometric morphometrics using (Geomorph) R (GMMR02)

14 October 2019 - 18 October 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: The field of geometric morphometrics (GM) is concerned with the quantification and analysis of patterns of shape variation, and its covariation with other variables. Over the past several decades these approaches have become a mainstay in the field of ecology, evolutionary biology, and anthropology, and a panoply of analytical tools for addressing specific biological hypotheses concerning shape have been developed. The goal of this is to provide participants with a working knowledge of the theory of geometric morphometrics,…

Applied Bayesian modelling for ecologists and epidemiologists (ABME05)

11 November 2019 - 15 November 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This application-driven course will provide a founding in the basic theory & practice of Bayesian statistics, with a focus on MCMC modeling for ecological & epidemiological problems. Starting from a refresher on probability & likelihood, the course will take students all the way to cutting-edge applications such as state-space population modelling & spatial point-process modelling. By the end of the week, you should have a basic understanding of how common MCMC samplers work and how to program them,…
