Introduction to bioinformatics using Linux (IBUL01)

15th August 2016 - 19th August 2016
SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, 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 Python for biologists (IPYB03)

3rd October 2016 - 7th October 2016
Malham Tarn Field Centre, Malham Tarn Field Centre,
Settle, North Yorkshire, BD24 9PU, 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…

Advanced Python for biologists (APYB01)

6 February 2017 - 10 February 2017
Flatford Mill Field Centre, Flatford Mill Field Centre,
East Bergholt, Suffolk CO7 6UL 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. This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of Python and are interested in using the language to tackle larger problems. In it, we will look in detail at the parts of the language which are particularly useful in scientific programming, and at the tools Python offers for…

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

15 May 2017 - 19 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)

3 July 2017 - 7 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…
