WORKSHOP: Translating workflows into Nextflow with Janis https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-translating-workflows-into-nextflow-with-janis-36386c6d-f9a2-4b4d-afa9-062ce3b8ac5d This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons workshop ‘Translating workflows into Nextflow with Janis’. This workshop took place online on 19 June 2023. Event description Bioinformatics workflows are critical for reproducibly transferring methodologies between research groups and for scaling between computational infrastructures. Research groups currently invest a lot of time and effort in creating and updating workflows; the ability to translate from one workflow language into another can make them easier to share, and maintain with minimal effort. For example, research groups that would like to run an existing Galaxy workflow on HPC, or extend it for their use, might find translating the workflow to Nextflow more suitable for their ongoing use-cases.  Janis is a framework that provides an abstraction layer for describing workflows, and a tool that can translate workflows between existing languages such as CWL, WDL, Galaxy and Nextflow. Janis aims to translate as much as it can, leaving the user to validate the workflow and make small manual adjustments where direct translations are not possible. Originating from the Portable Pipelines Project between Melbourne Bioinformatics, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, this tool is now available for everyone to use. This workshop provides an introduction to Janis and how it can be used to translate Galaxy and CWL based tools and workflows into Nextflow. Using hands-on examples we’ll step you through the process and demonstrate how to optimise, troubleshoot and test the translated workflows. This workshop event and accompanying materials were developed by the Melbourne Bioinformatics and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

This webinar took place on 14 June 2023. Event description  Australian human genome initiatives are generating vast amounts of human genome data to understand the cause of complex diseases, improve diagnosis / early disease detection and identify tailored treatment options.  To achieve this, genomic data needs to be compared between multiple individuals and cohorts, often across efforts/jurisdictions, at national or global scales, and requires the genomic data to be findable, searchable, shareable, and linkable to analytical capabilities. The Human Genome Platform Project aims to make it as easy as possible to securely and responsibly share human genome research data nationally and internationally. The project is building a ‘services toolbox’ that combines best practice technologies in human genome data sharing. In this webinar the project team will discuss three important aspects of human genomic data sharing i) discovery of genomic cohorts and the GA4GH Beacon protocol that enables this functionality across multiple sites ii) streamlining of data access request management; the Garvan will share experience using the Resource Entitlement Management System (REMS) software package. iii) community management functionality of CILogon and 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.

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).

This webinar took place on 7 June 2023. Event description  Proteomics aims to identify and quantify all the proteins and peptides within a sample. Mass-spectrometry is the most common tool for proteomics and the wide array of methods, techniques and specialised approaches available have made it a popular method for probing cells, tissue and organisms in response to various stimuli or diseases. Each proteomics method has unique experimental design considerations and optimum workflows for data analysis meaning that there is no one-size-fits all solution. The variety of approaches available provides flexibility but can be bewildering and a barrier to getting started.  This webinar sets you up with the foundational knowledge of what to look out for when designing and understanding proteomics experiments. It outlines what you can and can’t do with proteomics, the type of data to expect as well as common data analysis approaches and quality control steps.

This webinar took place on 16 February 2022. Event description  Australian human genome initiatives are generating vast amounts of human genome data. There is a desire and need to share data with collaborators but researchers face significant infrastructural, technical and administrative barriers in achieving this. To efficiently share and distribute their genome data they need scalable services and infrastructure that: is easily administered; allows for the efficient data management; enables sharing and interoperability; and is aligned with global standards for human genome data sharing. Australian BioCommons has brought together a team from Zero Childhood Cancer (Zero), the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research (UMCCR) and Australian Access Federation to explore the use of Gen3 technology. Establishing systems for easier management and sharing of their human genome data holdings is no simple task, and the group wants to ensure that other Australian providers and Institutions can benefit from their experience and easily deploy the same solution in the future. Gen3 is an open source software suite that makes use of private and public clouds to tackle the challenges of data management, interoperability, data sharing and analysis. It has been used in several very large NIH-funded projects that collectively house and describe data derived from hundreds of thousands of human samples (e.g. NCI Genomic Data Commons, BioData Catalyst, BloodPAC, BrainCommons, Kids First Data Commons). In this webinar you’ll hear from UMCCR and Zero about their experiences and progress towards establishing Gen3 instances to better enable better human genome data sharing in Australia. They will outline the challenges and opportunities that have arisen through this Australian BioCommons project and demonstrate the capabilities of Gen3 for human genome research.

WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo https://dresa.org.au/materials/workshop-refining-genome-annotations-with-apollo-d8f95fb3-7dc4-40e0-87d5-e7a4b2ceaf16 This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons  workshop ‘Refining genome annotations with Apollo’. This workshop took place on 17 November 2021. Workshop description  Genome annotation is crucial to defining the function of genomic sequences. This process typically involves a round of automated annotation followed by manual curation. Manual curation allows you to visualise your annotations so you can understand what your organism looks like, and then to manually refine these annotations along with any additional data you might have. This process is typically performed collaboratively as part of a team effort. Apollo is a popular tool for facilitating real-time collaborative, manual curation and genome annotation editing. In this workshop we will learn how to use Apollo to refine genome annotations using example data from an E. coli strain. We’ll focus on the basics like getting data into Apollo, viewing evidence tracks, editing and adding structural and functional annotation, visualising the results and collaborating on genome annotations. This workshop made use of a training instance of  the new Australian Apollo Service. This service enables Australian-based research groups and consortia to access Apollo and host genome assembly and supporting evidence files for free. This service has been made possible by The Australian BioCommons and partners at QCIF and Pawsey. To learn more about the Australian Apollo Service you can watch the Australian Apollo Launch Webinar. This workshop was presented by the Australian BioCommons and Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) . The Australian Apollo Service is operated by QCIF and underpinned by computational resources provided by the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre and receives NCRIS funding through Bioplatforms Australia and the Australian Research Data Commons as well as Queensland Government RICF funding.

This workshop took place on 7 October 2021. Workshop description It’s now easier than ever to assemble new reference genomes thanks to hybrid genome assembly approaches which enable research on organisms for which reference genomes were not previously available. These approaches combine the strengths of short (Illumina) and long (PacBio or Nanopore) read technologies, resulting in improved assembly quality. In this workshop we will learn how to create and assess genome assemblies from Illumina and Nanopore reads using data from a Bacillus Subtilis strain. We will demonstrate two hybrid-assembly methods using the tools Flye, Pilon, and Unicycler to perform assembly and subsequent error correction. You will learn how to visualise input read sets and the assemblies produced at each stage and assess the quality of the final assembly. All analyses will be performed using Galaxy Australia, an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience.

Successful data training stories from NCI https://dresa.org.au/materials/successful-data-training-stories-from-nci-33f110e3-0c06-492e-9cc5-fa0f886ca1b8 NCI Australia manages a multi-petabyte sized data repository, collocated with its HPC systems and data services, which allows high performance access to many scientific research datasets across many earth science domains. An important aspect is to provide training materials that proactively engages with the research community to improve their understanding of the data available, and to share knowledge and best practices in the use of tools and other software. We have developed multiple levels of training modules (introductory, intermediate and advanced) to cater for users with different levels of experience and interest. We have also tailored courses for each scientific domain, so that the use-cases and software will be most relevant to their interests and needs. For our training, we combine brief lectures followed by hands-on training examples on how to use datasets, using working examples of well-known tools and software that people can use as a template and modify to fit their needs. For example, we take representative use-cases from some scientific activities, from our collaborations and from user support issues, and convert to Jupyter notebook examples so that people can repeat the workfIow and reproduce the results. We also use the training as an opportunity to raise awareness of growing issues in resource management. Some examples include a familiarity of the FAIR data principles, licensing, citation, data management and trusted digital repositories. This approach to both our online training materials and workshops has been well-received by PhD students, early careers, and cross disciplinary users. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, HPC training, domain-specific training, reproducible workflows, training material

The strong focus on building community to complement training, has fostered an environment of learning, networking and sharing of expertise. Hear what the Graduate research students have to say about the value of skills training and how it has impacted their research; how the community has enabled them to network with a broad range of researchers and affiliate partner groups they would not ordinarily be in contact with; how their research journey has been enhanced by working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, as well as sharpening their teaching skills. The rapid refocus from face - face to online delivery, as a result of the pandemic, highlights the importance of the multi-faceted online approach including workshops, drop-in sessions, SLACK chat and online learning resources. As a result of the shift to online, the range of strategic external partner/affiliate groups has extended and demand for workshops and drop-ins has increased.  Learn how the instructors have altered their pedagogical approach to engage workshop and drop-in participants; how they have overcome some of the challenges of facilitating in an online environment; and how this is preparing them to become part of a digitally skilled workforce. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, eresearch skills, data skills, online learning, pedagogy, train the trainer, digitally skilled workforce, training material
