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 making development faster and easier. The workshop will use examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) take advantage of the advanced language features in their own programs and (2) use appropriate tools when developing software programs. 2017-07-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-07-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsComputerprogrammingPython

The end goal is to drive confident engagement with data analysis and further training - increasing the quality and reliability of interpretation, and putting that interpretation and subsequent presentation into the hands of the researcher. Each day of the course will deliver a mixture of lectures, workshops and hands-on practicals – and will focus on the following specific elements. Day 1 focuses on basic approaches and the computer skills required to do downstream analysis. Covering: Basic skills for data manipulation in R. How to prepare your data effectively. Principles of experimental design and how this influences analysis. On day 2, participants will explore the core concepts of statistics – so that they can begin to see how they can be applied to their own work, and to also help with better critical evaluation of the work of others. Covering: Basic statistics concepts and practice: power, variability, false discovery, t-test, effect size, simulations to understand what a p-value means. On day 3 we will continue to explore core concepts of statistics, focusing on linear regression and multiple testing correction.

Many of the grand challenges of science depend on simulations and models run on HPC facilities to make progress, for example: protein folding, the search for the Higgs boson and developing nuclear fusion. The course covers the basic concepts underlying the drivers for HPC development, HPC hardware, software, programming models and applications and an opportunity for more practical experience, information on performance and the future of HPC. This foundation will give the you ability to appreciate the relevance of HPC in your field and also equip you with the tools to start making effective use of HPC facilities yourself. The course is delivered using a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions and has a very practical focus. During the hands-on sessions you will get the chance to use ARCHER, the UK National Supercomputer, with HPC experts available to answer your questions and provide insight. Course Requirements: Please bring your own laptop. Pre-requisites: Attendees are expected to have experience of using computers, but no programming, Linux or HPC experience is necessary.

  • IBSTATB17 - Introductory Biostatistics for Biologists

    Elixir node event
    IBSTATB17 - Introductory Biostatistics for Biologists https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/ibstatb17-introductory-biostatistics-for-biologists This is one of our "Foundations" type courses, providing a systematic and detailed review of fundamental concepts and techniques in Biostatistics. Participants can expect to go through a set of exercises that are based on biomedical problems. These exercises are preceded by short lectures that are simple to follow. The lectures are designed to provide the conceptual framework that is needed to release the training power of the exercises, not to flood the participants with formality, which will be kept to a minimum. We will make use of a highly interactive methodology, taking advantage of our well equipped Bioinformatics training room. With this approach, we expect to bring the participants to a high degree of usage independence in using the methods that we cover. Main topics: Descriptive Statistics; Probability; Statistical Inference; Design of Experiments. Target Audience: Most participants must have had one or more semester courses in Statistics in their graduate education. For some, learning Statistics has happened a long time ago, and that makes it difficult to go back and manipulate the concepts with full confidence. For others, school days were just a while ago, but using that knowledge represents a serious effort. Opening a Statistics handbook, when you want to use Statistics righ away, is usually a painful experience, as concepts often show a less than obvious interdependence. Attending this course is a chance of revisiting those subjects in a systematic way, through a series of hands-on exercises, in a workflow that brings-in the skills in a seamless way. Course Pre-Requisites: Basic knowledge in Statistics is handy. Elementary skills in computer usage are needed. Basic Familiarity with the R environment will be necessary. Please follow the exercise that we provide. Install R from http://cran.r-project.org/ following the instructions. Download and unzip the Tutorial folder that is made available here. Then: Visualize the slides in "Tutorial R.pdf" Follow the exercise in "Basic_Exercise.pdf" For reference, we also provide a script with a correct set of R statements in sequence "Tutorial_script.R" Instructors:​             Ana Luísa Papoila holds a degree in Mathematics (Probability and Statistics) from the Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL), a Master of Science in Statistics and Optimization, from the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (UNL) and a PhD in Statistics and Operational Research, in the field of Probability and Statistics, from the FCUL in 2006. Since then, she is an Assistant Professor in the NOVA Medical School / Faculdade de Ciências Médicas of UNL where she coordinates and teaches several undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Biostatistics. Her main areas of research interest are Applied Health Statistics and Epidemiology. She is an integrated member of the Centro de Estatística e Aplicações da Universidade de Lisboa (CEAUL) since 2007. She is also responsible for the area of statistics of the Division of Statistics and Epidemiology from the Research Center of Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central.

Topics covered include: Days 1-3: Best Practices global objects and interfaces abstract interfaces and the IMPORT statement object based programming Object-Oriented Programming type extension, polymorphism and inheritance binding of procedures to types and objects generic type-bound procedures abstract types and deferred bindings IEEE features and floating point exceptions Interoperability with C mixed language programming patterns Fortran 2003 I/O extensions Days 4-5 (PATC course): OO Design Patterns: application of object-oriented programming creation and destruction of objects polymorphic objects and function arguments interacting objects dependency inversion: submodules and plugins Coarrays PGAS concepts and coarray basics dynamic entities advanced synchronization parallel programming patterns recent enhancements: collectives, events, teams, atomic subroutines performance aspects of coarray programming To consolidate the lecture material, each day's approximately 4 hours of lecture are complemented by 3 hours of hands-on sessions. The last 2 days of the course are a PATC event. A social event (self-paid dinner) for participant and instructor networking is planned for the evening on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/631/ 2017-09-11 07:00:00 UTC 2017-09-15 16:00:00 UTC [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    Data Carpentry https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/data-carpentry In many domains of research the rapid generation of large amounts of data is fundamentally changing how research is done. The deluge of data presents great opportunities, but also many challenges in managing, analyzing and sharing data. Data Carpentry workshops are designed to teach basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data. The workshop is aimed at researchers in the life sciences at all career stages and is designed for learners with little to no prior knowledge of programming, shell scripting, or command line tools. This course is organized in collaboration with [ElixirUK](http://www.elixir-uk.org/) and the [Software Sustainability Institute](https://www.software.ac.uk/).
