  • Network analysis of differentially-expressed genes using vissE and Cytoscape

    29 September 2022

    North Melbourne, Australia

    Network analysis of differentially-expressed genes using vissE and Cytoscape https://dresa.org.au/events/network-analysis-of-differentially-expressed-genes-using-visse-and-cytoscape In biological data, similarity between genes/proteins can be exploited to identify biological functions or pathways. For example, investigating pairwise protein-protein interactions can help us identify protein complexes that have related functions. Such analyses require pairwise interaction or similarity data to be represented as a biological network. Once generated, networks can be used to investigate various structural and topological characteristics to identify key entities in the network. A popular and powerful tool to visualise and analyse biological networks is Cytoscape. This workshop is in two parts. First, using an RNAseq data set from human cancer you will use the vissE tool analyse a list of differentially-expressed (DE) genes and generate a PPI network. In the second half you will be introduced to Cytoscape interface and learn how biological networks can be uploaded and analysed in Cytoscape. 2022-09-29 10:30:00 UTC 2022-09-29 15:00:00 UTC Melbourne Bioinformatics 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne, Australia 21 Bedford Street North Melbourne Australia 3051 University of MelbourneMelbourne Bioinformatics bioinformatics-training@unimelb.edu.au [] beginnersResearchers and research students, or anyone who wants to learn intermediate statistical concepts to apply in R. 20 workshop host_institution CytoscapevissEgene listsNetworks

  • Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online

    10 - 11 October 2022

    Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/trends-challenges-and-the-art-of-survey-writing-for-research-online We are in the middle of a data revolution. Research and decision-making in the private, not for profit and public sectors are not immune from these trends, and have become increasingly data-driven. Data collection is a significant part of this, and the use of surveys has become increasingly important to gather information on public opinion and consumer behaviour. However, there have been some high profile misses in recent years: the 2016 US Presidential election and Brexit being the most significant of these. What caused these errors, and can good survey design save us from making the same mistakes? Taught by an instructor with real-world experience as a campaign consultant, survey researcher and data scientist, this masterclass will focus on teaching you about survey design. We will explore how surveys can be effectively used to collect data for research, target campaigns and messaging, or design policy. You will be shown how modern survey research works, and sometimes doesn’t, how technology and social trends are changing survey research, and the best ways to write effective survey questions. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop the survey instruments needed for data-driven research, decision making and advice. 2022-10-10 10:00:00 UTC 2022-10-11 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all survey designsurvey researchsurvey instruments

    North Melbourne, Australia

    Network analysis of differentially-expressed genes using vissE and Cytoscape https://dresa.org.au/events/network-analysis-of-differentially-expressed-genes-using-visse-and-cytoscape In biological data, similarity between genes/proteins can be exploited to identify biological functions or pathways. For example, investigating pairwise protein-protein interactions can help us identify protein complexes that have related functions. Such analyses require pairwise interaction or similarity data to be represented as a biological network. Once generated, networks can be used to investigate various structural and topological characteristics to identify key entities in the network. A popular and powerful tool to visualise and analyse biological networks is Cytoscape. This workshop is in two parts. First, using an RNAseq data set from human cancer you will use the vissE tool analyse a list of differentially-expressed (DE) genes and generate a PPI network. In the second half you will be introduced to Cytoscape interface and learn how biological networks can be uploaded and analysed in Cytoscape. 2022-09-29 10:30:00 UTC 2022-09-29 15:00:00 UTC Melbourne Bioinformatics 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne, Australia 21 Bedford Street North Melbourne Australia 3051 University of MelbourneMelbourne Bioinformatics bioinformatics-training@unimelb.edu.au [] beginnersResearchers and research students, or anyone who wants to learn intermediate statistical concepts to apply in R. 20 workshop host_institution CytoscapevissEgene listsNetworks

    Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/trends-challenges-and-the-art-of-survey-writing-for-research-online We are in the middle of a data revolution. Research and decision-making in the private, not for profit and public sectors are not immune from these trends, and have become increasingly data-driven. Data collection is a significant part of this, and the use of surveys has become increasingly important to gather information on public opinion and consumer behaviour. However, there have been some high profile misses in recent years: the 2016 US Presidential election and Brexit being the most significant of these. What caused these errors, and can good survey design save us from making the same mistakes? Taught by an instructor with real-world experience as a campaign consultant, survey researcher and data scientist, this masterclass will focus on teaching you about survey design. We will explore how surveys can be effectively used to collect data for research, target campaigns and messaging, or design policy. You will be shown how modern survey research works, and sometimes doesn’t, how technology and social trends are changing survey research, and the best ways to write effective survey questions. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop the survey instruments needed for data-driven research, decision making and advice. 2022-10-10 10:00:00 UTC 2022-10-11 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all survey designsurvey researchsurvey instruments

  • Introduction to Unix

    5 - 6 December 2022

    Introduction to Unix https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-unix-079e5b5c-0387-441c-88bf-32b786a38f5b The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a power tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. Use of the shell is fundamental to using a wide range of other powerful tools and computing resources (including 'high-performance computing' supercomputers). This Software Carpentry workshop will start you on a path towards using these resources effectively. 2022-12-05 09:00:00 UTC 2022-12-06 12:30:00 UTC QCIF QCIF training@qcif.edu.au [] [] workshop open_to_all []
  • Doing Credible Qualitative Research

    5 - 8 December 2022

    Doing Credible Qualitative Research https://dresa.org.au/events/doing-credible-qualitative-research Qualitative researchers often try to do the same as quantitative research but with smaller samples. This master-class offers lectures and data workshops covering the latest approaches to key areas of qualitative research. It outlines threats to credibility and shows how to make your research credible. * Finding a topic in your data (as opposed to quantitative research, qualitative research is often inductive; discovering unexpected things in your data) * Mixed methods. (Mixing qual and quant data. Using multiple qualitative methods. Advantages and limitations) * How many cases do you need? (sampling to social processes not to populations) * Applying qualitative research to social problems and practice (avoiding pre-defined policy aims; discovering practical relevance at the conclusion of a research project 2022-12-05 10:00:00 UTC 2022-12-08 12:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative ResearchMixed MethodsQualitative methods
