WORKSHOP: R: fundamental skills for biologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-r-fundamental-skills-for-biologists-81aa00db-63ad-4962-a7ac-b885bf9f676b This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘R: fundamental skills for biologists’. This workshop took place over four, three-hour sessions on 1, 8, 15 and 22 June 2022.   Event description Biologists need data analysis skills to be able to interpret, visualise and communicate their research results. While Excel can cover some data analysis needs, there is a better choice, particularly for large and complex datasets.  R is a free, open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis, visualisation and more. The large variety of R packages available for analysing biological data make it a robust and flexible option for data of all shapes and sizes.  Getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics and programming. In this workshop we will equip you with the foundations for getting the most out of R and RStudio, an interactive way of structuring and keeping track of your work in R. Using biological data from a model of influenza infection, you will learn how to efficiently and reproducibly organise, read, wrangle, analyse, visualise and generate reports from your data in R. Topics covered in this workshop include: Spreadsheets, organising data and first steps with R Manipulating and analysing data with dplyr Data visualisation Summarized experiments and getting started with Bioconductor   This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Saskia Freytag from WEHI  with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.

This workshop took place on 23 September 2021. Workshop description Explore the many useful functions that the Bioconductor environment offers for working with genomic data and other biological sequences.  DNA and proteins are often represented as files containing strings of nucleic acids or amino acids. They are associated with text files that provide additional contextual information such as genome annotations. This workshop provides hands-on experience with tools, software and packages available in R via Bioconductor for manipulating, exploring and extracting information from biological sequences and annotation files. We will look at tools for working with some commonly used file formats including FASTA, GFF3, GTF, methods for identifying regions of interest, and easy methods for obtaining data packages such as genome assemblies.  This workshop is presented by the Australian BioCommons and Monash Bioinformatics Platform with the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative.

While this collective dialogue among instructors is not new, what is new is the traction that various groups are getting. The newly formed group of eResearch support staff gathered by the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) and Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) is one such group, as is the Lightweight Working Group (LWG): Researcher digital skills training data for enabling digital infrastructure use, spearheaded by University of Melbourne’s David Flanders during the pre-Skills Summit discussions. In this session we seek to build on the momentum, by including a hands-on working session. Participants are asked to come with information to share and questions they seek to answer. During the first half of this session, attendees will populate a public document with shareable training details. The goal is to at least double the size of the new cross-institutional national training collection started by the LWG. The second half of this session will be to ask questions to arrive at next steps. What do we need to do to continue building out this national training inventory and who will be in charge of maintaining and distributing the archive? What platforms exist and are used to capture training data and material and make it readily maintainable and findable? Can the material be reused and how do we recognise and capture re-use? Do we know about how to apply a license to our materials for appropriate reuse or do we need guidance? While there will likely be more questions than these, one question has been answered. When can we move from talking to doing? That time is now. contact@ardc.edu.au training inventory, training registry, national skills initiatives, training material
