  • EMBL-EBI: Introduction to Interpro

    27 February 2018

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    EMBL-EBI: Introduction to Interpro https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/embl-ebi-introduction-to-interpro-53e1d0e7-3f3a-4a3e-afad-ab68db11eb85 This workshop will give an introduction to the protein sequence analysis &amp; classification database [Interpro](https://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/). Interpro is a bioinformatics resource that provides functional analysis of protein sequences by classifying them into families and predicting the presence of domains and important sites. To classify proteins in this way, InterPro uses predictive models, known as signatures, provided by several different databases (referred to as member databases) that make up the InterPro Consortium. Also note: This event is part of a series of short introductions focusing on EMBL-EBI resources. If you want to learn more about these separate training events, see the Related Courses section below.

  • Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data

    31 October - 1 November 2017

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/analysis-of-single-cell-rna-seq-data-65e4ad9c-7a84-42d3-99e1-490795411009 Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging. In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq. The course website providing links to the course materials can be found [here](http://hemberg-lab.github.io/scRNA.seq.course/index.html).

InterMine-based data analysis platforms are available for many organisms including mouse, rat, budding yeast, plants, nematodes, fly, zebrafish and more recently human. The InterMine web interface offers sophisticated query and visualisation tools, as well as comprehensive web services for bioinformaticians. Genomic and proteomic data within InterMine databases includes pathways, gene expression, interactions, sequence variants, GWAS, regulatory data and protein expression. Part 1 (2.5 - 3 hours) will introduce participants to all aspects of the user interface, starting with some simple exercises and building up to more complex analysis encompassing several analysis tools and comparative analysis across organisms. No previous experience is necessary for this part of the workshop. Part 2 (1 hour) will focus on the InterMine API and introduce running InterMine searches through Python and Perl scripts. While complete beginners are welcome, some basic knowledge of perl, and/or python would be an advantage. The InterMine R package will also be introduced. Those not interested in this part of the workshop are welcome to leave or there will be a more advanced exercise using the web interface available as an alternative.
