May 2017
£260.00 - £550.00

Coding, data management, and Shiny applications using RStudio for evolutionary biologists and ecologists (CDSR01)

15th May 2017 - 19th May 2017
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course overview:  The course will introduce programming logic using the R syntax. The participants will be able to solve problems involving heterogeneous biological datasets and the combined use of different statistical packages, so the advantages of learning programming skills can be demonstrated. The RMarkdown syntax will be used to illustrate the advantages of literate programming and the possibilities of code sharing and archiving. In the sequence, participants will learn how to design relational databases (RDB) which can be used to…

Bioinformatics for geneticists and biologists (BIGB02)

3rd July 2017 - 7th July 2017
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course overview:  The handling of large datasets has become intractable without some level of bioinformatic literacy. Many biologists find that there is a steep learning curve to develop the confidence required to explore their genomics datasets effectively. This bioinformatics short course includes a rich collection of hands-on instruction and lectures specifically intended to help novice users become comfortable with a range of tools currently used to analyse next-generation data. Intended Audience The course is aimed at anyone interested in learning…

Spatial Prioritization with Marxan (MRXN01)

5th March 2018 - 9th 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)

21st May 2018 - 25th May 2018
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB 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,…

Eukaryotic metabarcoding (EUKB01)

23rd July 2018 - 27th July 2018
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB 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,…

Introduction to Bioinformatics using Linux (IBUL03)

1st October 2018 - 5th October 2018
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…

Introduction to bioinformatics for DNA and RNA sequence analysis (IBDR01)

29th October 2018 - 2nd November 2018
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Analysis of high throughput genome and transcriptome data is major component of many research projects ranging from large-scale precision medicine efforts to focused investigations in model systems. This analysis involves the identification of specific genome or transcriptome features that predispose individuals to disease, predict response to therapies, influence diagnosis/prognosis, or provide mechanistic insights into disease models. During this course (IBDR01), students will perform an example end-to-end bioinformatics analysis of genome (WGS and Exome) and transcriptome (RNA-seq) data. Students…
