Optimisation techniques in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

In many different problems from bioinformatics and systems biology (e.g. multi parameter estimation, reverse engineering of gene networks, multi-alignment problem, 3D structure prediction etc.) various optimisation methods are applied. In this course you will get acquainted with the underlying mathematics… The post Optimisation techniques in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.

EMBL-EBI: An Introduction to Sequence Searching

This workshop introduces the area of sequence similarity searching and focuses on how to use tools like BLAST and PSI-Search to find homologous sequences in EMBL-EBI databases. This session will include tips on which tool and database to use, input formats, how to change parameters and how to interpret the results pages. 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.

EMBL-EBI: Introduction to the ENA Sequence Archive

This workshop will give an introduction to the European Nucleotide Archive, [ENA](http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/). The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) provides a comprehensive record of the world's nucleotide sequencing information, covering raw sequencing data, sequence assembly information and functional annotation. 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.

EMBL-EBI: Exploring Protein Sequence and Functional Information with UniProt

This workshop will give an introduction to the resources provided by [UniProt](http://www.uniprot.org/). Participants will be shown, and given hands-on experience in, how to navigate the website, search for data and run analysis tools. The session also covers what the sources of our data are and how they are curated. A basic introduction into accessing UniProt Knowledgebase programmatically will be given as well.

EMBO Practical Course on Metabolomics Bioinformatics for Life Scientists

Overview This course will provide an overview of key issues that affect metabolomics studies, handling datasets and procedures for the analysis of metabolomics data using bioinformatics tools. It will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, computer-based practical sessions and… The post EMBO Practical Course on Metabolomics Bioinformatics for Life Scientists appeared first on Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences.

EMBL-EBI: Introduction to ontologies

This workshop will give an introduction to the basic concepts of ontologies and how they are useful in biological applications. The workshop will have three sections: * A brief, practical introduction to ontologies and semantics * Focus on Gene Ontology (GO), annotations made using GO and tools leveraging those annotations for biomedical discovery. * A practical exercise in annotating data with ontologies using EBI tools. A standard annotation exercise will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring examples of their own data for annotation, preferably in spreadsheet form.

An Introduction to MATLAB for biologists

This course aims to give you an introduction to the basics of Matlab. During the two day course we will use a practical based approach to give you the confidence to start using Matlab in your own work. In particular we will show you how to write your own scripts and functions and how to use pre-written functions. We will also explore the many ways in which help is available to Matlab users. In addition we will cover basic computer programming in Matlab to enable you to write more efficient scripts.

European Galaxy Administrator Workshop

Participants will learn how to install, configure, customize, and extend their own Galaxy servers. Topics include tool configuration, authentication and user management, using heterogeneous storage and compute services, and many other topics that will enable you to get your own Galaxy server up and running, performing well, and used by your community. More details to follow.
