  • WEBINAR: What *exactly* is bioinformatics?

    7 August 2024

    WEBINAR: What *exactly* is bioinformatics? https://dresa.org.au/events/webinar-what-exactly-is-bioinformatics ‘Doing’ bioinformatics to extract, process, analyse, and interpret experimental results is something that all life scientists do as part of their research. But what _exactly_ is bioinformatics? And is there a right (or a wrong) way to do it? In this webinar, Dr Georgie Samaha welcomes you to the vast world of bioinformatics. Georgie will illuminate key concepts including: -What does a typical experiment look like? -What kind of data will I work with? -What is involved in data-preprocessing? -What’s involved in data analysis? -Where can I do bioinformatics? We explore common experimental use cases and share essential - but easy to overlook - practical tips for accessing data, software, and computing resources you need to get your research done. **Speaker:** Dr Georgie Samaha - Product Owner of the Australian BioCommons BioCLI Project and Bioinformatics Group Lead at the Sydney Informatics Hub, The University of Sydney. **Date/Time:** 07 August 2024, 12 - 1pm AEST / 11:30 am - 12:30 pm ACST / 10 - 11 am AWST **Who the webinar is for:** This webinar is for life scientists who are looking to get started or build their skills in bioinformatics. **How to join:** This webinar is free to join but you must register for a place in advance. **[Register here](https://unimelb.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_kcYL2MaTTJ6r-yt3cwbePg)** 2024-08-07 12:00:00 UTC 2024-08-07 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Online, Australia Online Australia Australian BioCommons training@biocommons.org.au [] [] [] open_to_all BioinformaticsIntroductoryComputational research
  • WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists

    21 August 2024

    WORKSHOP: Online data analysis for biologists https://dresa.org.au/events/workshop-online-data-analysis-for-biologists [Galaxy](https://usegalaxy.org.au/) is a web-based platform that lets you conduct accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational biological research. Widely used by researchers world wide, Galaxy gives you access to 1000s of popular tools for analysis and processing of biological data. It is perfect for working with a wide range of big and small datasets including genome assembly, annotation, epigenetics, metabolomics, metagenomics, proteomics, statistics, transcriptomics, variant analysis and visualisation. This workshop provides an introduction to using Galaxy and available tools. Using an example dataset, you’ll practice uploading data, choosing and running tools, and viewing the results. We’ll share our top tips for managing your experiments and speeding up your analysis with workflows. The material covered in this workshop is freely available through the [Galaxy Training Network](https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/topics/introduction/tutorials/galaxy-intro-101-everyone/tutorial.html). **Lead Trainers**: Dr Gareth Price, Galaxy Australia. **Date/Time**: 21 August 2024, 1- 4 pm AEST/12:30 - 3:30 pm ACST/11 - 2 pm AWST **Location**: Online **Format**: This hands on workshop will take place online. Expert trainers provide an overview of the Galaxy platform and how to use it for data analysis. Hands-on activities are included to help you put your new skills into action. **Learning outcomes**: By the end of this workshop you should be able to: * Identify the key features of the Galaxy website: Tools, Histories and the Centre Panel * Upload data into Galaxy from your computer or a public website * Organise your data using tags * Select and run tools * Explore the results of your analysis * Create a workflow that can be used to repeat your analysis * Identify sources of support and further training **Who the workshop is for:** This workshop is for Australian life science researchers and bioinformaticians. It is a beginners workshop for people with no prior knowledge of Galaxy. It’s suitable for researchers with data to analyse or bioinformaticians who will be providing support to Galaxy users. No programming experience is required. You must be associated with an Australian organisation for your application to be considered. **How to apply:** This workshop is free but participation is subject to application with selection. Applications close at **11:59pm AEST, 7 August 2024**. Applications will be reviewed by the organising committee and all applicants will be informed of the status of their application (successful, waiting list, unsuccessful). Successful applicants will be provided with a Zoom meeting link closer to the date. More information on the selection process is provided in our [Advice on applying for Australian BioCommons workshops.](https://www.biocommons.org.au/workshop-applications) **[Apply here](https://galaxy-intro-2024.eventbrite.com.au/)** _This workshop is presented by the [Australian BioCommons](https://www.biocommons.org.au/) and the Galaxy Australia team with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national [Bioinformatics Training Cooperative](https://www.biocommons.org.au/training-cooperative)._ _This event is part of a series of [bioinformatics training events](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events).
