WEBINAR: KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-kbase-a-knowledge-base-for-systems-biology-653d9753-989d-4194-9230-6e2d90652955 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology’. This webinar took place on 22 September 2021. Event description  Developed for bench biologists and bioinformaticians, The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) is a free, open source, software and data science platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and designing biological function. This webinar will provide an overview of the KBase mission and user community, as well as a tour of the online platform and basic functionality. You’ll learn how KBase can support your research: Upload data, run analysis tools (Apps), share your analysis with collaborators, and publish your data and reproducible workflows. We’ll highlight a brand new feature that enables users to link environment and measurement data to sequencing data. You’ll also find out how KBase supports findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) research by providing open, reproducible, shareable bioinformatics workflows.

WORKSHOP: Unlocking nf-core - customising workflows for your research https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-unlocking-nf-core-customising-workflows-for-your-research-1584ff39-e007-4422-9fd5-4e407df6b6c5 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop Unlocking nf-core - customising workflows for your research’. This workshop took place over two, 3 hour sessions on 18-19 May 2023. Event description Processing and analysing omics datasets poses many challenges to life scientists, particularly when we need to share our methods with other researchers and scale up our research. Public and reproducible bioinformatics workflows, like those developed by nf-core, are invaluable resources for the life science community. nf-core is a community-driven effort to provide high-quality bioinformatics workflows for common analyses including, RNAseq, mapping, variant calling, and single cell transcriptomics. A big advantage of using nf-core workflows is the ability to customise and optimise them for different computational environments, types and sizes of data and research goals.  This workshop will set you up with the foundational knowledge required to run and customise nf-core workflows in a reproducible manner. On day 1 you will learn about the nf-core tools utility, and step through the code structure of nf-core workflows. Then on day 2, using the nf-core/rnaseq workflow as an example, you will explore the various ways to adjust the workflow parameters, customise processes, and configure the workflow for your computational environment. This workshop event and accompanying materials were developed by the Sydney Informatics Hub, University of Sydney in partnership with Seqera Labs, Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, and Australia’s National Research Education Network (AARNet). The workshop was enabled through the Australian BioCommons - Bring Your Own Data Platforms project (Australian Research Data Commons and NCRIS via Bioplatforms Australia).  Materials Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.

WEBINAR: Variant interpretation: from the clinic to the lab… and back again https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-variant-interpretation-from-the-clinic-to-the-lab-and-back-again-5c6aed91-24cd-4314-9638-5e60d51e1af1 This record collates training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons/Melbourne Genomics webinar ‘Variant interpretation: from the clinic to the lab… and back again’. This webinar took place on 7 December 2022. Event description  The use of genomic testing is increasing rapidly as the cost of genome sequencing decreases. Many areas of the health workforce are upskilling in genomics to help meet the increased demand. From clinicians learning how to use the right test, for the right patient, at the right time, to medical scientists learning how to interpret and classify variants, and data scientists to learning how to better create and continuously refine the pipelines and software to handle and curate big data. In this webinar, we’ll hear from two people working at the coalface of variant interpretation – one in a diagnostic laboratory and the other in a cancer research laboratory. Naomi Baker is Medical Scientist at Victorian Clinical Genetics Services. She helps process hundreds of genomic tests per year to find the variants that cause rare diseases. She’ll explain the clinical variant interpretation processes she uses, the pipelines, professions and people involved. Joep Vissers is a Curation Team Leader, at the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research, Department of Clinical Pathology. Joep, who also teaches cancer biology at the University, will describe how he uses variant interpretation in his work at the research/clinical interface, and the shift in mindset required when working with data for these different purposes. Amy Nisselle, Genomics Workforce Lead at Melbourne Genomics, will then briefly outline some of the education programs available in clinical variant interpretation.
