Events in Edinburgh and further afield of relevance to genomics researchers. Edinburgh Dementia Prevention Brain Health Summer School, Jun 12 - 16 We are excited to announce the return of the Edinburgh Dementia Prevention Summer School 2023, which will focus on the latest evidence for dementia prevention and promoting good brain health. Bioinformatics Workflows with Snakemake workshop, May 22 -24 Snakemake is a popular open-source tool to create reproducible and scalable data analyses. By the end of the course, you will be able to confidently use Snakemake to solve complex workflow problems. Introduction to Metabarcoding and Metagenomics Analysis workshop, May 8 - 11 The workshop will enable you to identify organisms (especially microorganisms) from traces of genetic material in environmental samples. NERC Advanced Training in Ecological Genomics: an introduction to laboratory methods and bioinformatic analysis, April 24 - May 5 This two week intensive course will provide a practical introduction to ecological genomics, covering the types of wet lab methods (DNA extraction, library preparation and next generation sequencing) and bioinformatic analyses (data QC, genome assembly, phylogenetics) necessary to go from samples to sequence to results. R for Biologists, Apr 17 -19 The aim of this course is to introduce participants to the statistical computing language 'R' using examples and skills relevant to biological data science. Livestock Epigenomics Workshop, Mar 31 Hybrid livestock epigenomics workshop hosted at Roslin Institute, showcasing current research in livestock and selected human studies. Shinning a light on Breast Cancer, Mar 29 Free in-person event at the Institute of Genetics and Cancer where you can learn more about breast cancer research and hear from someone who has had breast cancer themselves and share their experiences. Avian Research Symposium 2023, March 7 -9 A meeting to share and discuss research in avian biology with a focus on highlighting early-career researchers and creating networking opportunities between labs and institutions. Genome Assembly using Oxford Nanopore Sequencing, Mar 6 - 10 This course will introduce participants to a range of methods to complete the steps required to process raw Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing data into a fully assembled, polished and quality controlled genome assembly, both with and without accompanying short reads, and with and without a reference genome. Shining a Light on Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS), Feb 28 On Rare Disease Day 2023, find out about this rare genetic condition, (SRS) - lived experience, research, clinical and charity support. Variant Analysis workshop, Feb 6 -9 This course aims to provide an introduction to the principles of short variant discovery (both germline and somatic) from short read data. R for Biologists, Feb 20 - 22 The aim of this course is to introduce participants to the statistical computing language 'R' using examples and skills relevant to biological data science. Introduction to Linux for Genomics workshop, Jan 23 - 24 In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics. Introduction to Long-read Bioinformatics workshop, Jan 30 - Feb 1 This exciting new course aims to introduce the principles and practice using long-read data analysis with focus on Oxford Nanopore data. We will present the cutting edge software and best practices tried and tested by our expert bioinformaticians here at Edinburgh Genomics. Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop, Jan 9 -13 The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. High-Dimensional Statistics with R workshop, Jan 17 - 20 This is a short course aimed at familiarising learners with statistical and computational methods for the extremely high-dimensional data commonly found in biomedical and health sciences (e.g., gene expression, DNA methylation, health records). FAIR in (Biological) Practice workshop, Nov 22 -25 We will teach you how planning and using the correct set of tools you can make your outputs ready for public sharing and reuse. RNA-seq Data Analysis workshop, Dec 12 - 15 The aim of this workshop is to familiarise researchers with RNA-seq data and to initiate them in the analysis by providing lectures and practicals on analysis methodologies. Long-read Bioinformatics workshop, Nov 14 - 16 This exciting new course aims to introduce the principles and practice using long-read data analysis with focus on Oxford Nanopore data. We will present the cutting edge software and best practices tried and tested by our expert bioinformaticians here at Edinburgh Genomics. Introduction to Statistics with R workshop, Nov 15 - 18 This workshop uses a public health dataset and examples but the materials are relevant to researchers more generally in the life, health and social sciences. Workflows with Snakemake workshop, Nov 8 - 10 This course is intended for researchers who need to automate data analysis tasks for biological research using next-generation sequencing data, e.g., RNA-seq analysis, variant calling, bacterial genome assembly, and beyond.
