This webinar took place on 26 March 2024. Event description Multiplexed assays of variant effect (MAVEs) are a family of experimental techniques that measure all single amino acid or single nucleotide changes in a gene or other functional element. MaveDB is an international community database that enables discovery and reuse of data from these experiments. It provides a platform for integrating large-scale measurements of sequence variant impact with applications that can be used to interpret the data for basic and clinical research. In this webinar we consider:  What are MAVEs and how are the experiments performed? How much MAVE data is available in MaveDB and how is it organised? Who can submit datasets to MaveDB? What are some of the clinical applications for MAVEs and how is the data being used to understand patient variants?   Speaker: Dr Alan Rubin, Senior Research Officer, WEHI  Host: Dr Melissa Burke, Australian BioCommons   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: Multivariate integration of multi-omics data with mixOmics https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-multivariate-integration-of-multi-omics-data-with-mixomics This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Multivariate integration of multi-omics data with mixOmics’. This webinar took place on 6 March 2024. Event description Multi-omics data (eg. transcriptomics, proteomics) collected from the same set of biospecimens or individuals is a powerful way to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms of a biological system.  mixOmics, a popular R package, integrates omics data from a wide range of sources into a single, unified view making it easier to explore and reveal interactions between omics layers. It overcomes many of the challenges of multi-omic data integration arising from data that are complex and large, with few samples (<50) and many molecules (>10,000), and generated using different technologies.  Prof Kim-Anh Lê Cao, head of the mixOmics team, is delivering this webinar to outline the different methods implemented in mixOmics and how statistical data integration is defined in this context. She will demonstrate how these approaches are applied to analysis of different multi-omics studies and outline the latest methodological developments in this area. From a study of human newborns, to multi-omics microbiomes, and multi-omics in single cells, these examples illustrate how mixOmics is used to perform variable selection and identify a signature of omics markers that characterise a specific phenotype or disease status.

EcoCommons & Open EcoAcoustics SDM use case https://dresa.org.au/materials/ecocommons-open-ecoacoustics-sdm-use-case 1. Examples of code and the associated text summaries describe how open ecoacoustics https://openecoacoustics.org/ data can generate better SDM predictions. By using long-term monitoring data from https://acousticobservatory.org/ which allows analysts to infer absence locations, which does a much better job at predicting distributions than presence only methods, and which facilitate use of call frequency as a response variable rather than presence absence. The code and data used to generate these examples: https://github.com/andrew-1234/sdm-usecase-master 2. Shows one way to overlay areas with the least geographically and environmentally representative sampling in addition to the predicted probability of occurrence generated by an SDM. This shows how to spatially represent areas where additional acoustic sampling would increase representative sampling most.

HeSANDA Monash Node User Guides https://dresa.org.au/materials/hesanda-monash-node-user-guides This guide developed by the HeSANDA Monash node provides an overview for users of Health Data Australia (HDA). HDA helps researchers discover and access health data. HDA is a registry and does not store the data itself but provides descriptions of the data from data owners' publishing partners. Using HDA, researchers can search these descriptions, find data of use to do their research, then request access to it. The request will be sent to the owner of the data to review. Data owners receive email notifications about new data requests and can then log into the HDA Data Request platform to review the request and determine whether access can be granted and then respond to the researcher requesting access. If the request is approved, the owner arranges for the researcher to be given access to the data. The dataset descriptions (‘metadata’) contained on HDA help researchers understand the kinds of data that exist and assess whether a dataset may be of value to their research, without the need to actually access the data. In addition to metadata, data owners provide other documentation describing the data they hold, such as study protocols and data dictionaries. Using HDA, researchers can search for data, save their searches, submit and manage data requests.

This webinar took place on 19 August 2021. Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and "Just getting it to work" are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs as an Australian researcher, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey.  We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers.  This webinar was jointly organised with the Sydney Informatics Hub at the University of Sydney.

This webinar took place on 20 August 2021. Bioinformaticians are increasingly turning to specialised compute infrastructure and efficient, scalable workflows as their research becomes more data intensive. Australian researchers that require extensive compute resources to process large datasets can apply for access to national high performance computing facilities (e.g. Pawsey and NCI) to power their research through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS). NCMAS is a competitive, merit-based scheme and requires applicants to carefully consider how the compute infrastructure and workflows will be applied.  This webinar provides life science researchers with insights into what makes a strong NCMAS application, with a focus on the technical assessment, and how to design and present effective and efficient bioinformatic workflows for the various national compute facilities. It will be followed by a short Q&A session. 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: Getting started with R https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-getting-started-with-r-1c8f2b21-bc4b-4b42-9a5d-d6096a2afbe6 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Getting started with R’. This webinar took place on 16 August 2021. Data analysis skills are now central to most biological experiments. While Excel can cover some of your data analysis needs, it is not always the best choice, particularly for large and complex datasets. R is an open-source software and programming language that enables data exploration, statistical analysis visualisation and more. While it is the tool of choice for data analysis, getting started can be a little daunting for those without a background in statistics. In this webinar Saskia Freytag, an R user with over a decade of experience and member of the Bioconductor Community Advisory Board, will walk you through their hints and tips for getting started with R and data analysis. She’ll cover topics like R Studio and why you need it, where to get help, basic data manipulation, visualisations and extending R with libraries.
