8 April 2019 - 12 April 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how to use machine learning to analyze data coming from diverse data domains and scientific disciplines and without necessarily prior knowledge of the scientific discipline where the data are coming from. Attendees will learn how to use R and several R packages including classification and regression trees, ensembles and bagging, random forests, neural networks, and boosting (learning from mistakes). These techniques will be used for data classification, determining…

Introduction to statistics and R for everyone (IRFE02)

17 May 2019 - 20 May 2019
Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation, Wangi Road,
Myuna Bay,, New South Wales 2264, Australia

Course Overview: This course will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how (a) to understand and read modern statistics reported in scientific studies, (b) use basic modern statistics for analysing their own data, using the open access R statistical software. The course will focus more on data deriving from life sciences namely medicine, biology, and ecology. The course will initially revise basic statistical knowledge of what is a sample and a distribution, and what is hypothesis testing. Sequentially, attendees…

Spatial modelling and analysis of adaptive genomic variation (SPGN01)

17 June 2019 - 21 June 2019
PR statistics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Local adaptation to climate and other environmental drivers increasingly is being studied at the molecular level using high-throughput sequencing methods, with applications spanning both model and non-model organisms. At the same time, statistical tools for modeling and mapping patterns of biodiversity have seen increasing application, including to the challenge of understanding the drivers of spatial variation in adaptive genomic variation and mapping these patterns under current and future climate. This 5-day course will provide the skill set necessary…

Genomic data visualisation and manipulation using Python (DVMP02)

24 June 2019 - 28 June 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course overview: One of the strengths of the Python language is the availability of mature, high-quality libraries for working with scientific data. Integration between the most popular libraries has lead to the concept of a "scientific Python stack": a collection of packages which are designed to work well together. In this workshop we will see how to leverage these libraries to efficiently work with and visualize large volumes of data. Intended Audience This workshop is aimed at researchers and technical…
