Experimental Design

Description Modern technologies are able to deliver an unprecedented amount of data rapidly. However, without due care and attention early in the experimental process, such data are meaningless if they cannot adequately answer the intended research question. This course is aimed at those planning...

Biological Network Series

Description The Biological Network Series c onsists of three webinars, each presented in the form of a 2-hour lecture as well as a tutorial with step-wise screenshots that enable listeners to emulate the subject at hand. Please note that these are webinars and not a coding exercises . LECTURE 1: An...

Introduction to metagenomics

Description This two days course will focus on the theory and applications of metagenomics, for the analysis of complex microbiomes (microbial communities). The course will include theoretical (~40%) and practical (~60%) training. We will start with the fastest, simplest and cheapest amplicon based...

KNIME: Practical introduction to KNIME Analytics platform and its application in bioinformatics

Description This event introduces participants to the KNIME Analytics Platform, an open source data science platform with a visual workflow editor, that can be used by users without prior programming experience or integrated with existing scripts written in R or Python. These sessions are aimed...

Extracting biological information from gene lists

Description Many experimental designs end up producing lists of hits , usually based around genes or transcripts . Sometimes these lists are small enough that they can be examined individually, but often it is useful to do a more structured functional analysis to try to automatically determine any...
