Phylogenetic comparative methods for studying diversification and phenotypic evolution (PCME01)

5th November 2018 - 8th November 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: Phylogenetic comparative methods are commonly used nowadays to investigate how species diversification occurs and to test hypotheses about the mechanisms that drive phenotypic evolution, e.g. to model speciation and extinction, to understand why some groups are more diverse than others, to test whether phenotypic traits have evolved under neutral, directional or diversifying selection, to investigate how evolutionary rates are modified across the evolutionary history of a group etc. In all these cases, a phylogenetic hypothesis for the group…

Structural Equation Modelling for Ecologists and Evolutionary Biologists (SEMR02)

19th November 2018 - 23rd November 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: The course is a primer on structural equation modelling (SEM) and confirmatory path analysis, with an emphasis on practical skills and applications to real-world data. Structural equation modelling is a rapidly growing technique in ecology and evolution that unites multiple hypotheses in a single causal network. It provides an intuitive graphical representation of relationships among variables, underpinned by well-described mathematical estimation procedures. Several advances in SEM over the past few years have expanded its utility for typical ecological…

Introduction to statistics and R for everyone (IRFE01)

18th March 2019 - 22nd March 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

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…

Comparative genomics (CMGN01)

29th April 2019 - 3rd May 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB United Kingdom

Course Overview: This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians to the field of comparative genomics. The course will give a deeper understanding on the advantages and disadvantages of each of approach in general to enabling an informed decision of study design for the participants for future studies and learn the cutting edge approaches to process state of the art data sets. Different techniques will be introduced to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and structural variations (SVs) as well as the…

Introduction to Python for biologists (IPYB06)

10th June 2019 - 14th June 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB 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 (APYB03)

17th June 2019 - 21st June 2019
PR informatics head office, 53 Morrison Street
Glasgow, Scotland G5 8LB 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…

Genomic data visualisation and manipulation using Python (DVMP02)

24th June 2019 - 28th 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…
