In Life Science and Bioinformatics, R is increasingly being used to transform and analyse data, perform statistical analysis and produce publication-ready visualisations. This workshop will focus on advanced R functionality, to increase the participants skillset and understanding of what is possible to do today.
National workshop open for PhD students (prioritized), postdocs, researchers and others from all Swedish universities who have previously participated in the NBIS Tools for reproducible research course or with demonstrated experience in writing Snakemake workflows.
This course aims to help researchers to visualize their data in different ways using R, and will also aim to show researchers how they can make publication grade figures using R
National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of biostatistical skills within all Swedish universities. The course is geared towards life scientists wanting to be able to understand and use basic statistical methods. It would also suit those already applying biostatistical methods but have never got a chance to reflect on and truly grasp the basic statistical concepts, such as the commonly misinterpreted p-value.
This intense one-week workshop provides an introduction to the analysis of next generation sequencing data. Lectures on the theory of concepts will be paired with practical computational exercises in the Linux environment. The practical exercises will focus on data from the Illumina platform, but we will discuss other sequencing platforms and the advantages and challenges to using their data during the lectures.
National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees in need of fundamental Python skills within all Swedish universities
National course open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees within all Swedish universities. This course will introduce important aspects of Research Data Management through a series of lectures and hands-on computer exercises. The course is intended for researchers that want to take the first steps towards a more systematic and reproducible approach to analysing and managing research data.
National workshop open for PhD students, postdocs, researchers and other employees within Swedish academia. This course is run by the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS).
This year SBW will take place at Umeå University, October 27-28. The two days will be filled with inspiring talks, including keynote talks by Kerstin Lindblad-Toh (Uppsala University/Broad Institute), Debora S. Marks (Harvard University), and Simon Anders (Heidelberg University). There will also be three parallel hands-on workshops, a poster session, and a social event. The target […]
Spatial omics has emerged as a new frontier of biological and biomedical research. In particular, spatial transcriptomics has enabled genome-scale gene expression mapping with spatial resolution in tissue sections. So far, the ability to capture spatial epigenetic information at the cellular level and genome scale has been lacking. This talk will describe recent advances in […]
This course is open for PhD students, postdocs, group leaders and core facility staff interested in making their computational analysis more reproducible.
