DNA Methylation Data Analysis Workshop [2.-5. November 2020]

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding of the use of bisulfite-treated DNA in order to analyze the epigenetic layer of DNA methylation. Advantages and disadvantages of the so-called 'bisulfite sequencing' and its implications on data analyses will be covered. The participants will be trained to understand bisulfite-treated NGS data, to detect potential problems/errors and finally to implement their own pipelines. After this course they will be able to analyze DNA methylation and create ready-to-publish graphics.

By the end of this workshop the participants will:

  •     be familiar with the sequencing method of Illumina
  •     understand how bisulfite sequencing works
  •     be aware of the mapping problem of bisulfite-treated data
  •     understand how bisulfite-treated reads are mapped to a reference genome
  •     be familiar with common data formats and standards
  •     know relevant tools for data processing
  •     automate tasks with shell scripting to create reusable data pipelines
  •     perform basic analyses (call methylated regions, perform basic downstream analyses)
  •     plot and visualize results (ready-to-publish)
  •     be able to reuse all analyses

Online Course - A Practical Introduction to NGS Data Analysis [9. - 11. Dezember 2020]

The purpose of this workshop is to get a deeper understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. The participants will be trained on understanding their own NGS data, finding potential problems/errors therein and finally perform their first downstream analysis (variant calling). In the course we will use a real-life NGS dataset from the current market leader illumina.

All workshop attendees will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this fast evolving research topic.

The online course will make use of a web conferencing system. Hands-on NGS analysis will be performed in an interactive browser-based platform. Before the course, you will get a printed manuscript and a USB key by mail.

3D BioInfo Annual Meeting (November 21.-22, 2019)

ELIXIR Communities enable the participation of communities of practice in different areas of the life sciences in the activities of ELIXIR, which underpin the evolution of a data, tools, interoperability, compute and training infrastructure for European life science informatics (https://www.elixir-europe.org/use-cases).

Structural bioinformatics has a broad impact across the life sciences and provides tools to archive, visualise, analyse, annotate, and predict the structure of biological macromolecules. Structural bioinformatics is traditionally very strong in Europe offering many software tools, methodologies, and databases, as well as community-wide prediction challenges.

Its applications cover research activities from structural biology to drug discovery and personalised medicine that are all well represented within the national ELIXIR nodes.

The 3D-BioInfo Community was approved by ELIXIR in May 2019. This meeting will be the first official meeting of the community to plan major activities and to identify research groups wishing to contribute to these activities.
