ANALYSIS OF RNA SEQUENCING DATA WITH R/BIOCONDUCTOR

OVERVIEW

This course will provide biologists and bioinformaticians with practical  statistical analysis skills to perform rigorous analysis of high-throughput  genomic data. The course assumes basic familiarity with genomics and with R  programming, but does not assume prior statistical training.  It covers the statistical concepts necessary to analyze genomic and transcriptomic  high-throughput data generated by next-generation sequencing, including:  hypothesis testing, data visualization, genomic region analysis, differential  expression analysis, and gene set analysis.

The other end of a black hole

Event description

What would happen if you fell into a black hole? Would you be vaporised? Crushed into a point? Stretched into spaghetti? Or would you emerge at the other end to a new world – perhaps a new universe?


Join James Beacham, particle physicist at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, as he explores what happens when the fabric of reality – physical or societal – gets twisted beyond recognition, and what this means for you, now and in the future.

At the moment we are asking event attendees to continue following steps to make the Ri Covid-secure, such as wearing a face covering.


About the speaker

James Beacham searches for answers to the biggest open questions of physics using the largest experiment ever, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He hunts for dark matter, gravitons, quantum black holes, and dark photons as a member of the ATLAS collaboration, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012.


In addition to his research, he is a frequent keynote speaker about science, innovation, the future of technology, and art at events and venues around the world, including the American Museum of Natural History, the Royal Institution, SXSW, and the BBC, as well as private events for companies and corporations, including KPMG, Bain, Dept Agency, and many others.

INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS IN R FOR BIOLOGISTS AND ECOLOGISTS


COURSE OVERVIEW

This course will introduce scientists and practitioners interested in applying statistical approaches in their daily routine using R as a working environment. Participants will be introduced into the mysteries of R and R Studio while learning how to perform common statistical analyses. After a short introduction on R and its principles, the focus will be on questions that could be addressed using common statistical analyses, both for descriptive statistics and for statistical inference.

TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND

The course is aimed at early-career researchers (PhD students, early postdocs) or any other types of practitioners interested in widening their analytical toolbox. The course is structured in a way that even an inexperienced and naïve attendee could take advantage of the possibilities offered by the inclusion of statistical analyses using R. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using R as a freely available software and online resources.
The course is devoted to beginners with no prior knowledge in statistics, programming, and R language, but with a keen interest in using R as a platform for statistical analyses. All scripts will be carefully explained to allow all attendees understanding the rationale and usage of the statistical approaches.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  1. Understand how to read, interpret and write scripts in R.
  2. Learn statistical tools to address common questions in research activities.
  3. Hand-on experience on all the steps.
  4. Being comfortable with using R when performing both descriptive and inferential statistics.

PROGRAM

 

 Monday – Classes from 2 to 8 pm Berlin time - “Introduction to R”


Session 1: Introduction
In this session I will kick off with a lecture about the rationale of R as a language. We will discuss the reasons for each participant for attending the course, so that we can target parts of the course on the specific personal needs. I will use this introduction to motivate the four days of the course by introducing the potentials of R. Then, I will explain basic principles and terminology of R.


Session 2: Introduction
During the afternoon we will go through some of the basic principles of R, including packages, commands, reading and writing files, how to look for help, basics of R philosophy, how to write scripts, what objects are, etc. We will start obtaining our first outputs in R. The aim is to understand the use, potentials, and rationale of R as a platform for different uses.

SEASCAPE GENOMICS

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Seascape genetics/genomics is an emerging and multidisciplinary research field that studies how the underwater environment shapes the genomic diversity and connectivity of marine organisms.

In this course, students will firstly learn how to extract environmental data from publicly available databases and how to use it to characterize the seascape structure and conditions. For instance, students will learn how to use remote sensing data to describe sea water temperature oscillations or sea water movements. Next, the course will bring its focus on genomic analyses: students will learn how to evaluate genetic structures in the marine environment and how to calculate and display connectivity between populations. The combination of environmental and genomic data will also lead to the study of local adaptation. Students will learn different methods to discover genetic/genomic signatures potentially involved in adaptation against specific environmental constraints. The course will also cover the critical task of the interpretation and validation of the results, particularly in an applied conservation and management context. Finally, the workshop will consider the crucial aspects and good habits to account for designing a seascape genomics experiment (e.g. sampling design) from a relevant scientific question.

WORKSHOP FORMAT

The course is organized in ten learning sessions. Student will be guided through a seascape genomics experiment with sessions that couple brief theoretical introductions with practical work.

TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND

This workshop is aimed at all biologists, ecologists, geneticists, veterinarians that want to implement the seascape genomics approach in their own studies of evolutionary biology and conservation. Even though the course is not intended for a specialized audience, basic knowledge in evolutionary biology and population genetics would help. Students will learn how to use GIS, but basic computer skills are desirable (e.g. in the R environment). A basic understanding of statistics is also necessary.
